Brooke

Brooke Kalisiak

PT, DPT
Owner of Legacy Physical Therapy

Brooke Kalisiak PT, DPT (she/her) is Saint Louis’s leading physical therapist who helps people overcome frustrating, confusing and embarrassing pelvic health issues. She is passionate about making sure people do not end up suffering with pelvic health symptoms for years, giving up activities they love, or undergoing unnecessary surgeries.

​She founded Legacy Physical Therapy because she was frustrated with the way women with pelvic health issues were being treated in our healthcare system. Too many people are being told that their pelvic symptoms (ie bladder leakage, pelvic pain, pain with sex, etc) are normal or that there is nothing that they can do except take medication, have surgery, or just live with it. This is far from the truth. Many pelvic health issues are COMMON but NOT NORMAL. It is Brooke’s mission to help people make the best decisions about their pelvic health while creating a positive healing experience.

Brooke has a Doctorate of Physical Therapy and a Master of Science in Physical Therapy from Washington University in Saint Louis. She is a wife and mother. In her free time she enjoys, hiking, mountain biking, taekwondo, reading, and checking out local restaurants.
