"Pelvicore Physical Therapy is an absolute gift for any woman suffering with pelvic pain issues. The owner, Dr. Kathy Pesavento, is a proven, caring, diligent, miracle-worker of a physical therapist. When I was experiencing severe pelvic pain after I had my second child, Dr. Pesavento came to my rescue. She scheduled me for an initial visit within two weeks of my call. After listening very carefully to my concerns and reviewing my medical history, she performed some initial evaluations and spent considerable time informing me of her practice and how she thought she could help me. We then established a schedule of visits and now I am almost completely pain free.
Dr. Pesavento is by far the best health practitioner I have ever used. She always listens to me and to my concerns. She thoroughly explains every move she makes and why she is doing it. She answers every question and always makes sure I am comfortable with her therapy recommendation before proceeding.
Dr. Pesavento is also one of only a handful of PTs in the area who focus on the pelvic area. Moreover she may be the only one who is certified to perform "dry needling" which is somewhat like acupuncture, but more involved. It sounds much scarier than it actually is, and for me, it was the only thing that actually worked to resolve my pain issues.
Unlike most doctors, Dr. Pesavento did not just try the most popular method and give up when that didn't work for me. Rather, she took the time to explore some other techniques and made recommendations about stretches and "homework" that I could do at home to help relieve my pain. She was genuinely interested in me, in my health, in my family life, and ultimately in returning me to a pain-free life.
On a more logistical note -- her office is small, quiet and calming. As a sole practitioner she basically only needs a small treatment area and has 2 changing rooms. Everything is warmly and tastefully designed and presents a very tranquil atmosphere. Plus, there is always soft music in the background. More like a spa than a therapy treatment! Her schedule is often very booked, however, because she only treats patients 3 days a week. There is plenty of free parking around her office in Vienna.
I cannot recommend Pelvicore or Dr. Pesavento more highly!"
