Why I practice
women’s health physical therapy
In my clinical rotation at the University of Chicago in women’s and pelvic health, I found I was able to combine my passion for yoga along with my physical therapy education to bring a unique approach to treatment. I enjoy connecting to my patients in this setting and establishing a warm, comfortable, and goal-oriented relationship.

"After a difficult labor and delivery with my first born baby I suffered a 4th degree tear. I was scared I would never feel normal again or get back to activities I did pre-pregnancy. Dani helped me feel like myself again and I am so grateful. She helped me heal completely and gave me the confidence to start working out again. I really enjoyed working with her and I highly recommend Vitality Women's Physical Therapy - they are amazing!"
