Michele McGurk is an APTA board certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist in Physical Therapy.
In practice for over 17 years, Michele has extensive clinical experience treating Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip dysfunction. She began her career training with world-renown physiotherapists Diane Lee and Linda Joy Lee. This set the stage for her uniquely integrative and holistic approach to PT evaluation and treatment. By treating the connections between different parts of the body, Michele not only helps ease discomfort, but addresses the source of injury to prevent recurrence, leading to transformative and long-lasting wellness and health.
After traditional physical therapy and medication failed to improve her own pelvic injury, Michele discovered Visceral Manipulation and Craniosacral Therapy. After 6 sessions, her pain resolved and never returned. Amazed by both the gentleness and effectiveness of this osteopathic approach, she has dedicated her career to studying and practicing these highly sophisticated and innovative techniques.
Michele brings a deeply personalized approach to your treatment by integrating multiple modalities:
She studies through the Barral Institute, and continues to attend several professional education workshops annually, bringing the most up-to-date approach to improving your health. Michele is also a teaching assistant for the Barral Institute Visceral Manipulation classes. And thoroughly enjoys educating her patients to improve their own health and wellness.
Michele has found her passion in the specialized area of pelvic health.
With an emphasis on infertility, pelvic pain for both women and men, pre-natal and post-partum care, she is one of few PT’s in the city who has integrated Neural Mobilization into pelvic health. Michele has completed specialized training in the evaluation and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction through the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.
