Deanne Wade, PT, PRPC, BCB-PMD has been practicing physical therapy for 24 years with the last 17 years concentrating in pelvic rehabilitation. She attended The University of Tennessee, Knoxville receiving her first degree in Anatomy and Physiology followed by The University of Tennessee Center for Health Sciences in Memphis, Tennessee where she received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Therapy. Her initial interest in Pelvic Rehabilitation actually started when given an opportunity by her employer to attend a few “women’s health courses”. From there, her interests quickly spread to working with not only with women, but with men and children as well. She moved to Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare in Germantown, Tennessee in 2004 and started the Incontinence and Pelvic Rehabilitation Program where she continues to practice. Currently Deanne treats conditions including bowel and bladder dysfunction, pelvic pain, sexual dysfunction and coccydynia as well as musculoskeletal dysfunctions with pregnancy. The practice is also expanding during 2014 with added focus in Oncology especially for pelvic, urological and colorectal cancer. Her current practice setting offers her the opportunity to spend 1:1 time with each patient up to an hour per session as necessary.
Deanne received her certification in Pelvic Muscle Dysfunction Biofeedback (BCB-PMD) in 2006 and Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner Certification (PRPC) in 2014. Deanne is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and the Section on Women’s Health. She serves as a clinical instructor to several Physical Therapy programs. In the last few years she has presented community discussions on Post-Prostatectomy Incontinence as well as continuing education at local APTA district events. In addition, she has lectured to graduate students in Marriage and Family counseling on pelvic physical therapy for sexual dysfunction.
