Introduction to SHEFit Physical Therapy

Welcome to SHEFit Physical Therapy! I started SHEFit PT because I had become disillusioned with the traditional insurance-driven model for physical therapy, and I wanted the freedom to offer my clients my undivided attention, along with a higher level of personalized care that just isn’t possible in most clinics today. As a women’s health (pelvic floor) specialist, I deal with some very sensitive issues

Postpartum Day 11: Upper Body and Walking Tips

My 11th Day postpartum I went for another long walk and started some arm strengthening. You’ll need some free weights for these exercises, but if you don’t have any just grab some full 16 oz water bottles, cans of soup, etc for resistance. You’ll want to start with lighter weights than you may be used to – especially if you had a C-section (you should not be lifting more than about 10lbs)! Please join me in toning those arms and preventing shoulder injuries from carrying all that heavy baby equipment!
