Artemis is the greek goddess of, among other things, wild nature and childbirth. In choosing to practice under the name Artemis Physical Therapy, I want to draw inspiration from this archetype. I believe in respecting nature, as well as our individual natures as I work with patients to help them feel better in their bodies.
Most often associated with postpartum women, the practice of pelvic floor physical therapy has expanded to include patients of all ages, and all across the gender spectrum. While I remain passionate about maternal health and offer services specific to this group, I have trained and worked with female and male anatomies, as well as pediatric patients. I am not limited in which patients or diagnoses I can work with.
The understanding of how fundamental pelvic floor function is to whole-body mobility has also grown. I find that training in pelvic health lends a particularly holistic lens to physical therapy practice. Not only do different parts of the musculoskeletal system work together in an intricate and integrated way, but they also interact with other body systems. All of this needs to be considered in treatment as we use physical therapy to maximize a patient’s function, understanding of their body, and independence in caring for their physical self.
