Do you have problems ‘down there’? Is it coming from your pelvic floor? Can pelvic physical therapy help me fix it?
Hudson Valley Physical Therapy
Hudson Valley Physical Therapy, founded in 2011, is a therapist owned private practice located in Hartsdale (Westchester County), New York. Our practice specializes in pelvic health physical therapy for all genders. We offer physical therapy care for abdominal, pelvic or adhesion-related disorders, perinatal musculoskeletal issues, complicated orthopedic/musculoskeletal conditions and care for chronic pain and dysfunction. Our therapy can play a key role in treating these conditions and the potential contributing factors that may accompany these issues which affect the mind, body and spirit.
We constantly strive for excellence by attending educational seminars and professional conferences to learn the most effective evidence-based approaches to succesfully treat our patients and to get them back to living their best life. In turn, we preach what we practice. We teach, just down the road in Dobbs Ferry, in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at Mercy College. We introduce graduate physical therapy students to prenatal/pregnancy/postpartum musculoskeletal issues, pelvic health and transgender health and the role of physical therapy in treating these patient populations. We also participate in community and wellness events at local gyms, yoga and Barre studios to teach the principles of pelvic and core health during exercises in order to prevent injury.
At Hudson Valley Physical Therapy, our mission is to enhance the overall physical health, quality of life and wellness of all genders and help them to return to the lifestyle they enjoy. We are open minded and respectful of all orientations, ethnicities and religious affiliations. We are committed to providing high quality, individualized physical therapy. Your healing is our priority. We feel that education and self-empowerment are integral components in each patient’s road to healing, so treatment programs are customized to meet each individual’s specific goals and needs.
