April Patterson , PT, MSPTWhole Body Physical Therapy, PC
April earned her Master’s of Science degree in Physical Therapy in 2003 from Northeastern University in Boston, MA. As a previous collegiate division 1 soccer player, avid runner, and a competitive figure skater, she had sustained numerous sports-related injuries. She could relate to her athletic and orthopedic patients undergoing the physical therapy rehabilitative process. Originally, her PT practice focused on Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. She became a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist in 2008. During this time, she sought out treatment for her own chronic pelvic, hip and back pain through pelvic floor physical therapists and other skilled practitioners, with a comprehensive, conservative and holistic approach. After giving birth to her second child, she shifted her practice focus to passionately pursue specialized training in pelvic floor physical therapy, myofascial, visceral, and neural mobilization manual therapy techniques. She found these treatment techniques to be vital to her own healing process and return to full function, and wanted to provide this expertise to her patients. April combines her pelvic and orthopedic physical therapy knowledge, skills, experience and advanced training to evaluate and treat the whole body, which is integrally connected. She utilizes a combination of manual therapy, education, and specific corrective exercise to help each patient on their journey to feeling whole, returning to function and the activities that they love.
