Our resident women’s health and pelvic floor physical therapist is a dedicated professional. With a background in dance, she occasionally took physical therapy due to several dance injuries. Eventually, those sessions, piqued her interest in this field and she decided to become a physical therapist.
Diana graduated from Rutgers University after completing her Bachelor of Science in 2011. She earned her doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2014 from the same institution.
After three years of professional experience, Diana decided to advance her career by joining Specialized Therapy. Her initial focus was on the diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic and neurological conditions. Later on, she decided to switch specialization by focusing on women’s health and physical therapy.
She studied this branch of physical therapy at Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute. There she learned to treat women with pelvic floor dysfunction. She plans to expand her expertise on Pelvic Floor and Women’s Health by continuing her studies. Additionally, Diana is a member of APTA’s Section on Women’s Health.
To her, women’s health is an underrepresented and often misdiagnosed area of the community. As a pelvic floor physical therapist, she plans to dedicate her life to fill these gaps and create comprehensive treatment plans for pelvic dysfunctions in women.
Her past experiences as a patient make it easier for her to connect with women who come for treatment. She believes that building a safe environment and comfortable puts the patients at ease. With her by your side, you will find it easier to achieve your fitness goals.
