I am so thankful for Sandy and I seriously can't say enough good things! I went to her at about 36 weeks pregnant for a back issue and also just for some preventative care/to learn more about my pelvic floor/prep for labor, birth and postpartum. She figured out exactly what was going on with my back and was able to help take away that pain. She also gave me information about my pelvic floor and birthing positions that are best for me. Her treatment was so individual which felt so nice knowing it was what worked best for me! She took time to understand and listen to what I was looking for and wanted out of PT. She knows what she's doing and am so happy I found her. I would 100% recommend her to anyone!
I am so glad I found Dr. Sandy to help me through my postpartum journey. After a difficult birth, I knew I needed to seek additional care for my pelvic floor. I struggled for the first 3 months postpartum not understanding what had happened to my body. My OB was great throughout my pregnancy journey, but after the birth, I felt I wasn't getting the care I needed for the issues I was experiencing. My first interaction with Dr. Sandy was on the phone after I had left an inquiry message on her office line. Not only did she call me back within a day, but she talked with me on the phone for almost an hour to understand my issues prior to even booking the first appointment. Never having been to physical therapy, let alone for such a private area on my body, I was nervous for my first appointment. Dr. Sandy immediately made me feel comfortable and was extremely thorough in her discussions with me. She is so warm, welcoming, and easy to talk to. I ended up doing 10 sessions, and each one she went over her allotted time to make sure I was prepared with the correct exercises and information prior to leaving. I never felt rushed out of the office, unlike I do every time I see a regular doctor! Having just finished my last session, I am so happy with how far I've come. Not only is my pelvic floor stronger and feeling mostly back to normal, but I also received invaluable nutrition support to help me with some GI problems I was also experiencing. I would recommend Dr. Sandy to any Mom, whether you are newly postpartum or had a baby 10 years ago. She has been so helpful throughout this difficult period in my life, and I'm so thankful that I made the decision to go to her practice!
Sandy was fantastic in her personal approach and handling my concerns and issues with such care. She gave me insight into some post partum related issues that I was having (even though my kids are 7 and 10!) and great long term approaches that I can implement for future improvement and success.
I am a sub-elite runner with big goals especially in the marathon, and had never once been diagnosed with Diastasis Recti, which has contributed to some pelvic floor issues and leakage while running, even though I've previously been to PT and also a urology gynecologist. Sandy was thorough in her exam, and realistic with what the mind and body might be able to achieve with sustained practice. I feel confident now that I have the tools to work toward improvement, even as I age.
I was having recurring bladder issues and regular methods (diet, doctor's visits, medicines) weren't helping with my pain. I went to Sandy for Pelvic floor physical therapy recommend by my doctor. After a few visits I started feeling better and after 6 visits I am pain free. She is very thorough, knows her stuff, easy going and truly interested in my welfare. Before I went to see Sandy I had 2 months of pain and I was losing hope I would get better. I can't tell you how relieved I am that I finally found help at Resonance. I would highly recommend Resonance Physical Therapy for what ails you.
Sandy is an absolutely AMAZING physical therapist, and you will NOT find better in this area! When I first saw Sandy 3 months ago for a year long si joint/hip injury, I was completely desperate for some answers; she was my 4th PT (YES, 4!) on this injury (along with 3 different doctors). None could correctly diagnose me, despite 2 MRI's and a CT scan, several injections, etc. This was torturous on me, given I have been highly active my entire life. Sandy is different than any medical professional I had encountered.- She is brilliant, patient, and genuinely cares for her patients and will do all she can to help. After she had taken several videos of my gait (running the tape in slow motion) and countless analytics of my movements, a light bulb finally went off. Because I had developed severe compensation, I had to unravel/build proper strength at a snails pace. With that, Sandy took the time to explain WHY she prescribed the exercises, which the previous 3 PT's had not done and was impeccable in making sure I was performing them properly. I am SO grateful that I found Sandy, as I am not sure where I would be at this point if I had not. I feel I gained valuable knowledge for life. Also, I am running again! :) Hands-down the BEST- Thanks, Sandy!
Pelvic Floor Therapy:
1 in 4 women will be affected by pelvic floor issues. The incidence of pelvic floor issues increases with age and menopause.
