The American Board of Physical Therapist Specialties (ABPTS) oversees the Women’s Health Clinical Specialist (WCS) board certification. The “WCS” (meaning, letters behind one’s name) indicates that a physical therapist has proven that he/she has the knowledge, skill, and experience exceeding that of an entry-level physical therapist and unique to the area of women’s health practice. We are the ONLY office in Chester County that has the WCS distinction.
In addition, one of our therapists, Gina Cunningham, received her Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy (CAPP). This distinction certifies that a physical therapist has completed a comprehensive education, training, and testing program for the management of patients with diagnoses of pelvic health dysfunction, such as urinary incontinence and pelvic pain. The CAPP is awarded to physical therapists whohave completed three courses of training in pelvic physical therapy, pass written and clinical testing requirements at each level, and successfully complete a written case report.
Our practice treats all aspects of women from adolescence thru menopause. Our pelvic services focus on pregnancy and postpartum issues, urinary/bowel incontinence, pelvic pain and gastrointestinal disorders (IBS/constipation) using our functional manual therapy approach.
