+ Our Mission

Pelvic Education Alliance is fueled by its mission to fuse the worlds of orthopedic and pelvic floor physical therapy. We believe that physical therapists treating the pelvis need expertise in both orthopedics and pelvic floor physical therapy in order to treat their patients through a wider lens with a more integrated approach. Pelvic Education Alliance courses are lab-intensive with an excellent instructor to student ratio.
