Physical Therapist

Megan is an orthopedic and pelvic floor physical therapist. Since graduating from Northwestern University’s Physical Therapy program, she has taken additional continuing education courses to further specialize in women’s and pelvic health. She believes that all of her clients are athletes, whether goals are to lift up children or to lift a heavy barbell. In addition to her pelvic floor knowledge, Megan also has experience treating patients with musculoskeletal pain, balance deficits, hypermobility disorders, and persistent pain. 

Why I practice

women’s physical therapy

I was first introduced to pelvic floor physical therapy at a conference while I was in school. Each of the speakers talked about empowering women through physical therapy, giving them their lives back and making them feel like themselves again. After attending that conference, I dove head first into pelvic floor education and haven’t looked back. 

 

Since I was a gymnast in college, I love guiding women through the process of creating an exercise routine that works for them whether they are brand new to exercise or returning to high level training such as CrossFit or weight lifting. At Vitality, you are in the driver’s seat, creating goals that you want to achieve to live your life empowered. My mission is to guide you through your treatment, giving you the tools to live a life of wellness.
