Leah has assisted in research defining ‘normal’ mobility of the low back in children and adolescents. Leah has also participated in research to assess the impact of BMI and age on fitness levels of adolescent male boy scouts. Leah also mentors physical therapy students as a clinical instructor.
Leah has always loved movement analysis and understanding how the human body was designed to function that stemmed from her history as a ballet dancer. Leah is passionate about understanding the source of patient’s symptoms and designing a specific treatment plan tailored to each patient to help them reach their personal goals. During her time completing her doctorate, Leah underwent training internships in both hospital and manual based physical therapy clinics. She also completed a 3‑month internship at Beaumont Women’s Urology Center working in the specialty of pelvic and women’s health physical therapy treating both men and women with pelvic floor dysfunction including incontinence, chronic constipation, dyspareunia and pelvic pain.
Leah is a mother and loves spending time outside being active with her family. She enjoys weight lifting and cardio interval training. Leah is passionate about helping both men and women achieve and maintain an active and healthy lifestyle that is not limited by pelvic health dysfunction. Seeing firsthand how pelvic floor dysfunction can be severely limiting for a person’s quality of life in daily activities and helping a person restore their quality of life is extremely rewarding. This led her to begin additional training to specialize in internal pelvic health physical therapy. Leah is currently pursuing her Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Health Physical Therapy working towards her Women’s Health Clinical Specialist Board Certification.
