Angela Treadway - Featured Certified Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner

In our weekly feature section, Pelvic Rehab Report is proud to present this interview with newly certified practitioner Angela Treadway, DPT, BCB-PMD, PRPC

Angela Treadway

Describe your clinical practice:

I work within a busy Urology practice with 2 physicians, 2 mid levels, and a psychologist specializing in sexual medicine. As the pelvic floor physical therapist member of this team, I serve the urological, colorectal and sexual medicine needs of the men and women referred from within the practice and from outside specialist and primary care physicians. We have recently added a second office and will be recruiting a second pelvic floor physical therapist to join our team.

What lesson have you learned from a Herman & Wallace instructor that has stayed with you?

Two principles appear to be foundational to H&W courses. Firstly, always ask questions and keep learning from your peers. Whether one has 3 years of experience or 30, each clinical story has a pearl of wisdom in it. Secondly, when determining exactly who your peers are, be sure to include all providers whose scope of practice includes the pelvic floor. Only then can the conversation have its richest content. These principles help keep me open and probably led me to the multidisciplinary setting where I am able to problem solve with providers looking at clinical situations through completely different filters than a physical therapist has. This keeps my clinical eye sharp and problem solving juices flowing.

What do you find is the most useful resource for your practice?

I keep Herman & Wallace Pelvic Floor Level 1 -3 course manuals handy for reference. A well worn copy of Netter is usually open on either my desk or the desk of the female urologist seated next to me. We often problem solve together using Netter. My go-to text is Evidence Based Physical Therapy for the Pelvic Floor (Bo, Bergmans, Morkved, Van Kampen).

What motivated you to earn PRPC?

Because my practice is 50/50 men and women, I wanted to acquire the ultimate in current and cutting edge knowledge pertinent to my population. In my experience, H&W courses and exams are designed to fuel the learning process. The PRPC preparation materials and even the exam followed that design. I came away with an integrated understanding of what I solidly knew. I also gained a firm grasp on what needed strengthening in my knowledge base.

What is in store for you in the future?

For most of my 30 years in practice I have taught both public outreach classes and special topics courses in PT and PTA programs. I love to teach and will continue looking for opportunities. Writing is also a passion. I have 4 book outlines in queue and the first book is due out by Christmas.
