Laura Meihofer PT, DPT, ATC, RYT-200
Laura has a very diverse training background that has shaped her approach to physical therapy. Her training began as she earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Athletic Training from Simpson College in Indianola Iowa in 2008. She then attended Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences in Rochester MN, where she earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2012. Laura was immediately offered a position working with Mayo Clinic, and focused exclusively on individuals with pelvic floor dysfunction, where she still practices today.
Throughout her years of treating patients, while taking many continuing education courses she felt she needed something more to offer to reach all patients with pelvic floor muscle dysfunction. This led Laura to attain two yoga certifications: Restorative Yoga Level 1 Teacher, and 200-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher. Recently, Laura has expanded her practice online to provide information for both patients and providers via Laura Meihofer LLC: online blog, YouTube, and Instagram. The explanatory posts and videos give instruction and sample modifications for all types of patients. All of her work endeavors to demystify the pelvic floor with a well educated, holistic approach.
Working within a large institution, Laura has had many research and teaching opportunities, and is at home working within a multidisciplinary team. Laura has a rich practice that consists of a high volume of complex patients. She has consistent experience maintaining focus on successfully servicing diverse patients of all gender identities and sexual orientations who suffer from pelvic floor muscle dysfunction.
Outside of work Laura enjoys exploring nature, traveling, and cuddling with her lovable pooch.
