Meet Your Strength Within and Ashley Zimmerman! Your Strength Within specializes in pelvic floor dysfunction.
We thought you might want to get to know them a better and asked them all these great questions to fill you in! The best part of all this is that they are a part of the team we refer to directly in our professional network. We know the therapists personally, have had coffee with them and have a great relationship in caring for our families together.
Tell us about your practice
Your Strength Within was created to provide a platform to support women. I believe that if we are educated, we are empowered. I provide Pelvic Health Physical Therapy, Pilates Instruction and education-based workshops to improve care for women.
What makes you great at what you do?
I am committed to continuing to learn…..and I LOVE it. Because I am constantly working towards expanding my knowledge base, I’m able to provide care that is specific to each person’s needs. We all come from different backgrounds and all have unique situations, so we cannot treat each injury/dysfunction the same. I use the presentation of the whole person to guide my treatment sessions.
What do you enjoy about this work?
The work I do is sensitive in nature, and I don’t take for granted the trust that comes into this work. Being able to support a woman through a difficult time is special. We all deserve someone to give us a safe space to share and heal-I’m just grateful I’m able to give that to women who need it.
What sets you apart from others in your field?
I’ve completed trainings in areas other than strictly physical therapy which allows me to have more than one view of the body. I am a certified birth and postpartum doula as well as a BIRTHFIT professional.
Do you specialize in anything?
I specialize in pelvic floor dysfunction. Pelvic floor dysfunction can look like: incontinence (leakage of urine or bowel), pelvic pain, abdominal pain, hip pain, low back pain, pelvic organ prolapse, diastasis recti (abdominal muscle separation), constipation or pain with intercourse. I also specialize in prenatal and postpartum care.
