About

Hello there! I am Annette Sison-Estrada, PT, DPT, specializing in Pelvic Floor Health PT and initially as an Orthopedic PT. I have been working as a Lead, PT for Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital here in Hollister, CA for 27 years. I obtained my Doctorate Degree in PT from the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, TX. I have been in an out-patient clinical practice for a total of 31 years, and 8 years of these are dedicated mostly to Pelvic Health PT. I highly value in my clinical practice an individualized and holistic approach in patient care. I have completed my post-graduate advanced continuing education pelvic PT series course work with the Herman and Wallace Rehabilitation Institute from 2011- 2014 and have taken Pregnancy course under the SOWH-APTA in 2012. Education has a paramount significance in my profession and continues to further my clinical knowledge and skills through taking specialty Pelvic PT related courses at least biannually. I also love tuning in to weekly Pelvic and Women's Health Podcasts, read monthly PT journals, attend webinars and participate in other online courses. I have been recognized by the Institute to have demonstrated proficiency and academic achievement in the evaluation and treatment of patients with Chronic Pelvic Pain, Incontinence, Prolapse and Obstetrics.

    I first encountered Annette when my Pain Management doctor (Ariel Hurtado) told me that my hips & SI joint pain issues couldn’t be managed by ultrasound guided injections any further in early 2019. I had had bi-lateral hip replacement surgeries in 2018. The first surgery, my right hip, was in June 2018, and the second surgery was in December 2018.

    My June 2018 surgery went off without a glitch! I was walking for the first time in 5 years with NO PAIN or discomfort. June through October was an awesome time for me. I was recapturing my vigor & vitality for life! I could work and enjoy my life and social activities without limitations. My walking and mobility were fantastic, and I didn’t need my walker nor cane anymore. My surgeon and regular PT had both released me to regular duty. And, I felt like I was on cloud nine! I began to lose weight and began to tone my body, which had been neglected for over 5 years!

    But as the date of the second surgery approached, I began to experience intense lower back pain and excruciating pain in my left hip and pelvic area. I knew that I needed the second surgery as soon as possible, but since I am a school teacher, I had to wait until the end of the semester in December 2018.

    Unfortunately, in December, I wasn’t in the best of health, but I pushed for my surgery due to the tremendous amount of pain that I was suffering from. I had been on prescribed pain meds an muscle relaxers for nearly 18 months by now, and they didn’t seem to alleviate much of my discomfort. During my surgery in December, I suffered from many complications, and after the surgery, the PAIN never quite went away. My GP referred me to Dr. Hurtado, who in turn referred me to Annette for my SI joint discomfort and my pelvic instability.

    Meeting Annette was a GODSEND! She was so sweet and gentle, yet professional!! She began to work her MAGIC on my body, and I couldn’t believe the results that we yielded! We began with the pelvic floor exercises — which I didn’t think would do anything for me because they seemed so simple! But, with the level of pain that I was at, I had no choice but to follow her directions and do my part by exercising at home and at the gym in the therapy pool.

    Annette is so knowledgeable and skilled that she identified and corrected 3 out of 4 of my trigger points. I had been suffering from excruciating leg and thigh cramps for almost 10 years! Nothing seemed to help!!! And no matter how many doctors I sought help from — 5 of them so far — none of them was able to address the underlying causes of my cramps, discomfort and mobility limitations. All they wanted to do was throw more pain medications at me. But, because Annette is so skilled and talented, she worked on my trigger points and alleviated nearly 90% of the pain and cramping that I had been suffering from for over 10 years!!! You cannot imagine the relief that she brought into my life!

    One of my PT goals – as silly as this may sound — was to be able to bend over and put on my shoes and socks by myself. My lower body had become so rigid that I could not bend sufficiently to accomplish that simple task! Even with the two hip replacement surgeries, I could not put on closed-toe shoes or socks without help. Regardless of the weather since I live alone, I had to wear slip-ons due to my severely limited flexibility. I couldn’t even tie my own shoes! But through Annette’s guidance and patience, we accomplished my goal. Every time we had a PT session, she would follow up with print outs of the exercises that we covered that session.

    To date, I still have times where my body is stiff, but all I have to do is remember the tips and exercise that she shared with me, and I can alter my own pain level and discomfort. I thank the Lord that Annette was placed in my path in life. Though we still have some work to do to fully accomplish my unlimited mobility, I have faith that Annette will help me through the next phase of PT.

    I highly recommend her if you are suffering from limited mobility in your core area of your body. Through Annette’s expertise, patience, kindness, guidance, and professionalism, I believe that you too will meet your goal.

    Annette Estrada is very knowledgeable and passionate about her work to help others out of pain. She explained what she was going to do and the reason behind it which helped me feel relaxed and safe. She is a very positive and encouraging professional who truly wants to help the patient. She showed me the exercises to do that would help my situation. And taught me how to be mindful of how I am holding and treating my body that will help in achieving a pain free lifestyle. The exercises and breathing techniques she taught me (which I still do) has been very beneficial in my returning to doing things in my life that I had to previously give up.

    Annette Estrada has helped me twice now with her knowledge and expertise in both my pelvic floor issues and also helping me with my swollen scares after my breast cancer reconstruction surgery. I saw Annette once a week in an extended session for my pelvic floor issue. Annette gave me explanations, handouts and exercises to do at home. When I returned to my GYN he was extremely pleased with my progress and I was told I no longer had the pelvic floor issue. My swollen scars have been worked on by Annette just recently and I just finished my visits. All is well and My swollen scars are now flattened out. Annette again gave me handouts and instructions to work thru at home each time and I will continue to address my scars. Annette is a miracle worker with boundless energy, extreme professionalism and a kind heart and demeanor.

    When I first came to Annette Estrada I was in the most unexplainable excruciating pelvic pain. I had already been through a surgery in which my ovary was removed. I was taking pain pills that proved to be unsuccessful and I was desperate for answers and a cure. Needless to say, I was entering into a depression and withdrawing from everything I love to do. The first round of pelvic floor therapy I was skeptical about the process and I have to admit I put little effort into my recovery. Still, Annette was compassionate and gentle towards my case. A year went by when I was finally diagnosed with Intersticial Cystitis (IC) or Bladder Pain Syndrome (BPS). Now, my second round of pelvic floor therapy, I decided to do everything that was suggested. Annette taught me and coached me daily. I saw her twice a week where she identified trigger points, taught me breathing and the importance of relaxing my body’s position. She showed me how to stay in awareness of my thoughts and to notice how my body is reacting to my thoughts subconsciously. Annette made connections with post traumatic stress and the need to awaken my spirit towards positive energy. In my case it would be through a relationship with God. Under Annette Estrada’s professional care I was treated in a safe, clean and private environment full of motivational and empowering words. I experienced numerous breakthroughs in pain management by trigger point massage and breathing techniques . I experienced an awakening of my spirit through encouragement and coaching. Stretching and breathing are essential to living a pain free lifestyle. I left Annette’s care empowered again to live with hope.
