ALL ABOUT ASHLEE GENDRON, DPT

Getting Better Together

I graduated from Western University of Health Sciences with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2011.

I began my career in outpatient Orthopedics, where I worked with a huge variety of patients. After 
I had my first child in 2015, I had the most difficult time accepting my new body. My biggest issue was urinary incontinence. I couldn't make any hard impact movements (running, jumping, squatting, sneezing, coughing) without leaking heavily! My Obgyn told me to just do Kegels and it was "normal" after child birth. So, I continued on with life with no improvements at all. I couldn't even chase my 15 month old when he darted out into the street. I had my second child in 2017 and was back to where I started. At this time, pelvic health Physical Therapy was becoming more recognized, but I still couldn't locate anyone local by googling that could examine me and help me start to rehabilitate. I had taken my first pelvic health course through the APTA back in 2013. This was before children, so I didn't realize the importance and the struggles that women go through after child birth. 

In 2018 I started to take 2 women's health courses a year and now 5 years postpartum I am finally comfortable with my body. It is still a work in progress, but it is a huge milestone for me. I decided I wanted to offer the care and guidance a woman deserves after having children to feel confident and to just feel good.
