What Clients Say

Katie, Young Business Woman

FROM OLATHE, KANSAS

After countless visits to my OB, multiple sonograms, tests and a visit to a urologist, it was determined that I had pelvic floor dysfunction. My urologist suggested physical therapy. I thought to myself “I don’t need to spend money for someone random Joe physical therapist to tell me how to exercise down there, that is just silly”. But I did need it…

After weeks of continued symptoms, I finally gave in. I went on a search for a PT but I wanted a more specialized PT…and then I found Shannon! The concierge of women’s health!! She was everything I needed and more!

This was a very personal issue but she made me feel comfortable right from the start. With each session, we talked about my issues (amongst many other things); she educated me on PFD and created a personalized exercise plan. The exercises were easy to do and hardly took any time…and best of all, they worked!!!

Not only did she help me physically, but Shannon also provided emotional and mental therapy to help me retrain my brain and work past the pain I had been living with for months.

I cannot stress how thankful I am to have found Shannon. She is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and gave me hope!! From one woman to another, thank you a million times!!

FROM PRAIRIE VILLAGE, KANSAS

Shannon, thanks for coming to my birthday party! I loved having you there. And all my friends were like ‘we love Shannon’ and I said ‘I know, I love her, too!’ And they said ‘we can tell you love her and we love her because we’ve heard so much about her — also the fact that she got you better.’

Gosh, I can’t believe I’m 75 — oooh, in 5 more years, it’s 80! Anyway, my last (whatever I have left on this earth) is because of you. You got me up and going. I appreciate it a lot, you know I do.

Marjie, Postpartum Mom

FROM LEAWOOD, KANSAS

Shannon came highly recommended after I noticed some postpartum problems (diastasis recti, hip pain and mild urinary incontinence). She made me feel very comfortable in what is normally an uncomfortable situation. She gave me hope that things would get better.

As a physician, I felt she was more than knowledgeable in her field. The best part was that she made home visits! The thought of dragging my newborn out somewhere was too much at the time.

Julie, Postpartum Mom

FROM FAIRWAY, KANSAS

I was referred by my OB for physical therapy in 2014 because of severe symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD–a painful separation of the center of my pelvis) during my pregnancy. Walking, turning in my sleep, getting in and out of my car, navigating stairs–any time I had to move my legs or shift weight–caused so much pain sometimes I just cried.

Shannon did a thorough evaluation that my (wonderful) doctor did not, and she worked right away to better align my pelvis and reduce the pain. I don’t know how I would have made it through my pregnancy without her. After having a healthy delivery and getting clearance from my doctor, I resumed therapy with Shannon for the lingering pelvic pain. I gained great strength and stability and much better body awareness.

Needless to say, once I fell pregnant for the second time, I returned to Shannon. I enjoyed much better pelvic alignment and less pain throughout the pregnancy, and a much easier recovery (despite some initial “sneeze pee” moments when I was hit with a bad cold immediately postpartum. Yikes!)

I love working with Shannon because she comes up with great imagery to help me understand anatomy and rehabilitative exercises. Her sessions always feel fresh and educational, even though I’ve seen her dozens of times over the last few years.

Anyone battling painful or embarrassing pelvic issues–you owe it to yourself to visit Shannon. Do not accept that “this is just what happens when people have babies, get older, etc.” There is great help if you know where to look!
