Cristina Shupe, PT , MPTCalyx Therapeutics - Integrative Physical Therapy
I am a Pelvic Health Physical Therapist in San Francisco, CA currently serving the entire San Francisco Bay Area. While the focus of my practice is on the treatment of pelvic and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction I also consider myself a generalist and enjoy helping patients with concerns beyond the pelvis. My career path has afforded me extensive training and experience working with patients with a wide variety of complaints from complex orthopedic and postpartum complications, chronic pelvic pain syndromes, sexual pain and dysfunction, chronic pelvic neuropathies, as well as bladder and bowel problems. My empathetic and holistic approach to treating patients involves a combination of traditional and osteopathic manual therapies (Fascial Counterstrain), with whole-body, integrative therapeutic movement based in Pilates, yoga and Foundation Training. I chose the profession of Physical Therapy because I found the idea of healing through manual therapy and movement fascinating and I believed it would give me the opportunity to offer a positive change in people’s lives. I would choose it again today, 20 years later, for the same reasons, I am still fascinated by how physical therapy can eliminate pain and restore function and am overjoyed to watch some heal and return to their lives without limitations.
