A New Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist - Legacy Physical Therapy

A New Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist

Hi Legacy Physical Therapy Family!

I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself as I just joined the practice this month. My name is Manali Adi. I moved here from Phoenix, Arizona with my fiancé and 2 dogs. 

  I have been practicing for over 2 years, and completed my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Augusta University, in Augusta, Georgia. My undergrad degree was in nursing. I particularly enjoyed my labor and delivery rotation during nursing school, which sparked my interest in treating pelvic health conditions. 

I strongly believe that every person can benefit from seeing a pelvic floor physical therapist. In the pelvic physical therapy community, we constantly hear from patients saying 

  1. They wish they would have known about it existing sooner 
  2. They felt like they were the only ones going through something like this.

 I want to stress that you are NOT alone! 

  • More than 40% of women between the ages of 60-79 experience pelvic floor dysfunction, and 50% of women 80 and older1
  • About 15% of women of childbearing age in the United States reported having pelvic pain that lasted at least 6 months2

If you are interested in learning more about pelvic floor physical therapy, we would be so excited to talk to you! I can’t wait to interact with the St. Louis community and spread the knowledge about pelvic floor physical therapy.
