Whitney Sippl DPT, WCS

Whitney is passionate about pre/postnatal care and believes physical therapy services during pregnancy and after delivery should be standard of care in the US, like it is in other countries.   She is devoted to promoting awareness, well being, and healing of her patients with a goal of empowering women during the prenatal and postnatal periods to address any of their discomforts or concerns.  Many women are told that symptoms such as incontinence, painful intercourse, scar pain, pelvic girdle/back pain, or abdominal separation are normal after having a baby; however, although these conditions may be common, they are not “normal” and there are many techniques available to address these concerns.
