Annie Cumming, PT, DPT

Physical Therapist

Registered Yoga Teacher

Annie specializes in women’s health care management of musculoskeletal and
neuromuscular dysfunction. She is passionate about treating the whole person, not
just the symptoms. Her holistic approach to the rehabilitation process supports
recovery and assists in preventing future dysfunction. She has advanced training in
pregnancy, pelvic floor conditions, and bladder health.

 

While completing her doctorate in physical therapy, Annie developed a pelvic health
outreach program within the Chicago Public School system. She continues to
empower women by providing workshops, lectures, and yoga classes within the
community.

Why I practice women’s physical therapy

As a student in the health field, I found it disappointing that the majority of clinical research that our current medical model is based on, was focused on men. While
diseases and certain conditions are shared between the sexes, women’s bodies respond to treatment and present with illness and injuries differently. As a woman, I want to be a part of establishing women’s centered care in order to improve treatment offered, while supporting the unique changes that occur in our bodies throughout the lifespan.


Specializing in women’s health has deepened my PT practice, and allowed me the unique opportunity to treat dysfunctions associated with childbirth, pregnancy, menopause, female athletes, chronic pain, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, and complications from cancers common to women.
