OUR STORY

Sarah and Emily first met in 2001 in Seattle, Washington early in our careers as pelvic physical therapists. A decade later our paths crossed again in Raleigh, North Carolina, when we were able to work together and reconnect as friends.  We soon discovered that we shared the common dream of owning a practice that would allow us to treat our patients with the latest evidence-based techniques in a comfortable and healing environment. Carolina Pelvic Health Center, Inc. is the result of our shared vision to create a premier physical therapy practice specializing in the treatment of female and male pelvic health.  Our philosophy is to treat the whole person by identifying and treating the underlying structural and functional movement imbalances that are the root source of the problem.  We believe in a collaborative model and work closely with area physicians and other allied health professionals to address the complex nature of our patients’ symptoms. We are honored that you have chosen us to help you with your journey towards healing through physical therapy rehabilitation.
