Tara is a registered yoga therapist, trained in myofascial release and utilizes advanced biofeedback techniques to achieve quicker, lasting results for her patients.
Tara specializes in treating pelvic floor pain due to trauma, infections, post surgical, and dyspareunia (painful sex), as well as stress and urge incontinence, interstitial cystitis, chronic prostatitis and post prostatectomy dysfunction in men.
When not trying to change the world one pelvic floor at a time, she is focused on her other passions: being a mom to Danny and Tyler and wife to her husband Jeff.
Diana is currently seeing patients on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays.
Haley treats a variety of conditions including low back pain, hip pain, SI-joint dysfunctions, prenatal/post-partum healing and strengthening, pelvic floor pain, abdominal pain, urinary and fecal incontinence, over-active bladder, dyspareunia (pain with intercourse) and pelvic organ prolapse.
Haley’s treatment approach is highly individualized and is geared towards empowering the patient to take control of his or her own healing journey. Her hands-on treatment approach includes manual therapy skills, myofascial release, breathing and relaxation techniques, postural retraining, biofeedback, dry-needling, and therapeutic exercise.
Haley is a strong believer in the importance of balance in life. So, when away from work she is traveling the world with her husband, exploring the outdoors, working in her garden, or spending time with her family.
With over 12 years of experience Alessandra has completed advanced evidence based specialized training to help her patients achieve their goals. Alessandra treats a variety of conditions for women and men related to the pelvic floor including and not limited to low back pain, thoracic back pain, sacroiliac joint pain (SIJ), pelvic pain, abdominal pain, hip pain and dysfunction, urinary and fecal incontinence, over active bladder, Dyspareunia (pain with intercourse), prolapse, diastasis recti, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, infertility, prenatal and postpartum conditions, chronic prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), post surgical pain and dysfunction.
Alessandra finds that all treatments need to be individualized to the patient to meet their needs and to help improve their function and quality of life and may include therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, visceral mobilization of fascia, myofascial cupping, instrument assisted manual therapy (IASTM), intramuscular dry needling, neurological re-education, and biofeedback.
When away from caring for her patients she enjoys spending her time with her husband and daughter.
She has found that patients are often frustrated over being misdiagnosed and not finding answers to their problems. “Many people have no idea that physical therapists are highly trained in treating disorders in the pelvis.” She feels that in most cases the most effective treatment for pelvic pain and dysfunction is a multidisciplinary approach. “It is rare that pelvic pain involves only one organ or tissue.” She feels that communication and teamwork with physicians and other healthcare providers is essential.
Sandy enjoys treating people of all ages from adolescence to geriatrics. She has found that postpartum women have a unique need for pelvic physical therapy that is often overlooked in the medical community. Her strengths include using advance manual therapy techniques, looking outside the pelvis for answers and treatment, and educating patients about their condition. She finds biofeedback and electrical stimulation to be useful for muscle re-education and for treating overactive bladder. She is a great listener, empathetic, and has a relaxed manner that leads to open, honest communication about sensitive issues without embarrassment.
Sandy is excited and proud to have joined the exceptional group of therapists at Desert Physical Therapy. “They are committed to professionalism, knowledge, and healing, and the atmosphere is warm and full of positivity. At Desert PT we have the luxury of being able to spend more quality time with our patients than other healthcare providers. That allows us to genuinely connect with them and participate in their journey to recovery.”
Tami received training through physiotherapist and yoga therapist, Neil Pearson’s, Pain Care Yoga courses. Working alongside physical therapists, Tami works with those who want to use the ancient art of yoga blended with modern science to develop a healthy, mindful movement practice. Tami emphasizes the use of awareness, breath, moving and inhabiting the body with more ease and less tension, mindfulness-based relaxation and meditation. Active and restorative yoga are both utilized. Tami offers Pilates as a way to enhance movement variety, coordination and strength. Tami completes continuing education workshops in Pilates through the Physical Therapy based Polestar Pilates. She also offers relaxation massage therapy as a helpful way to help find more ease in the body and mind. With a ceaseless curiosity of the sciences and art of movement, she designs her sessions with clients to explore movement in a way that is supportive for their individual needs. She also has a strong interest in what mindful movement allows us to discover about ourselves — body, mind, heart, soul, the world around us, and how it all connects. Tami’s hope is to inspire others to mindfully and compassionately support the whole-self in a way that enables and empowers their pursuit of what is meaningful in life. When not working, Tami spends time with her husband, three dogs and cat.
