A Little About Us: The PHRC Mission

Liz and I formed the Pelvic Health and Rehabilitation Center in 2006 in San Francisco. We started the company with a specific mission in mind, committing to improve the quality of life of our patients and the dynamic growth of our employees and students. We boldly tackle educating the community and medical professionals with our innovative and evidence-based practice. We compete by providing outstanding customer service and attracting, motivating, and retaining talented people.

We understand the challenges that professionals face trying to learn all there is to know about pelvic health and running a pelvic health business. We also know that there are many groups and services available to help, but sometimes people need a more individualized approach with specialized attention given to your particular questions and needs. We have been in business 20 years and chances are, whatever it is that you are struggling with, we have been there and we want to help.

More About PHRC

Commitment to Education

Since the time we formed PHRC, we worked hard to help our patients achieve their goals, grow our business, and educate medical professionals about the role pelvic floor physical therapy plays in optimizing pelvic health. We also understood the struggles pelvic floor physical therapists encountered trying to get the training they needed to be effective clinicians. We developed the first continuing education course on Pudendal Neuralgia in 2007 and subsequently taught it over 40 times around the world. We launched a blog that has hundreds of thousands of readers per month. We lectured regularly at medical conferences and to physical therapists. In 2013, I had the honor of being the first physical therapist to be President of the International Pelvic Pain Society, In 2016 we published our first book, Pelvic Pain Explained, and in 2019 we developed a second continuing course, Advanced Management of Pelvic Pain Syndromes. 

Business Growth and Clinical Excellence

In the clinic, we expanded, growing from one clinic in 2006 to nine clinics in 2020. Our expansion and growth meant employees were joining the team on a regular basis, and they needed training. We put our heads together and developed an in-depth training program with checks and measures to ensure that our staff was highly qualified to help people recover from pelvic floor disorders. The field of pelvic health is ever evolving. To stay on top of the latest evidence-based medicine we have weekly staff meetings that include journal club presentations, educational presentations, and robust clinical discussions. We prepare challenging cases to work with our staff on solving. We provide weekly one-on-one mentoring to all of our employees. A company our size with such a unique and talented team has created an environment of ongoing learning and support. We learn from each other everyday. We understand the majority of pelvic floor physical therapists are not afforded this luxury. We are going to change that, starting now.

Online One-on-One Mentoring

Over the years Liz and I have always had an ‘open door’ policy for our students and would answer questions via email or phone calls the best we could. Now we are opening ourselves up to online ‘office hours’, where people can sign up to meet with us directly. This time can be used however the person signing up wants to use it: clinical discussions, business discussions, life discussions. Whatever is on your mind, we’ve got you covered. 

Online Continuing Education Courses

We are excited to take our Advanced Management of Pelvic Pain Syndromes online! Please sign up below if you are interested in more information and to stay on the registration distribution list. 

Online Advanced Skills Assessments

Each quarter we prepare a complicated case to challenge and grow the clinical reasoning skills of our physical therapists. During this online session we provide students with a case prior to the meeting. We will then run through the case, establishing the appropriate subjective questions, what objective tests are warranted, developing an assessment, and troubleshooting treatment plan challenges.
