Welcome! I want to use this first blog post as an introduction. I graduated from physical therapy school in 2011 and have practiced in many different areas of physical therapy. While I always liked my job, I felt something was missing. About 5 years ago, some colleagues of mine recommended I take a pelvic floor continuing education course. To be honest, I was taken aback and not at all interested! I knew what pelvic health PT was, but didn’t think it would be for me. Thankfully, with their encouragement, I decided to see what all the fuss was about. Within the first 30 minutes of that course, I knew this was the missing link I had been looking for. Since then, I haven’t looked back and have immersed myself into the pelvic PT world! I can now say that I truly love what I do.
I have a great passion for pelvic health, as the pelvic floor plays such a huge role in everything we do: breathing, running, exercising, chasing kids, getting in and out of chairs/beds/cars, etc. If our pelvic floor isn’t functioning properly, it may cause issues in our ability to perform our daily activities! I do want to add, as much as I love the pelvic floor, it is just one part of our body. I make sure to assess everything from the feet on up to the head, as it all plays a role in our ability to maintain optimal function.
With future posts, I’m excited to show how pelvic floor PT can help to improve common symptoms that we don’t have to accept as normal: incontinence, pelvic pain, back/hip pain, pregnancy/postpartum concerns, constipation, along with many others. If there’s anything you want to learn about, shoot me an email and I’ll add it to my future topics. I’m excited to share my love of pelvic health with you!

About the Author
Hi! I’m Michelle Webb, Doctor of Physical Therapy at Webb Physical Therapy.
Since graduating from PT school in 2011, I have worked in many different areas of physical therapy, but it wasn’t until I started working with pelvic health that I found my true passion. I believe that each patient should be treated with a holistic, whole person approach to healing. Every person is unique, and I love helping my patients develop individualized treatment plans to help them achieve their specific goals. Too often, people are told that the pelvic health issues they are feeling (leaking urine/feces, pelvic pain, pain with intercourse/tampon use/speculums, pelvic heaviness, the list goes on and on) are normal, and something they have to deal with. While those issues may be common, I want to help everyone realize there is life outside of their symptoms! I truly feel joy when I can help someone improve their quality of life and return to the activities they love, without difficulty.
