Founders and Faculty

The Institute's faculty represents some of the most experienced physical therapists in the treatment of incontinence, pelvic pain and pelvic dysfunction. Their clinical knowledge and expertise will ensure that the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute courses will consistently offer the most current information and treatment considerations for pelvic floor and pelvic girdle dysfunctions.

Our mission is to foster an interdisciplinary approach toward patient care, multi-site research and use of consistent outcome measures. We have some of the best practitioners and researchers in the country supporting the Institute.
