(INCLINE VILLAGE, NEVADA, June 16, 2009)— Jane O’Brien, PT, MSPT of North Tahoe Physical Therapy in Incline and Essence Therapy in Reno has received the transitional Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy (tCAPP) from the Section on Women’s Health of the American Physical Therapy Association.

The requirements for O’Brien’s to receive the tCAPP were studies of the three levels of Pelvic Physical Therapy classes, passage of competency skills tests for the three levels of study, passage of the didactics tests for each level, and submission of a case report on a complex patient with pelvic floor dysfunction.  O’Brien received the tCAPP which is for experienced therapists who completed training in pelvic physical therapy before starting on the Section on Women’s Health CAPP tract of study. During her studies, O’Brien acquired the skills and knowledge necessary to provide physical therapy interventions for male and female patients of all ages with pelvic floor disorders.

“This certification demonstrates dedication and advanced training in the field of Women’s Health,” according to O’Brien. Although the numbers are growing, at the current time, the field of Women’s Health PT’s is small. O’Brien is only the second Physical Therapist in Nevada to receive this certificate. Clients from all over Northern Nevada and Northern California travel to the area to receive treatment. Some clients who benefit from this type of care are those with overactive bladder, painful intercourse, post breast surgery care, prenatal and post partum orthopedic issues and pain, incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pudenal neuralgia and vulvadynia.

O’Brien received her Master of Science Degree from Boston University in 1992. She has over 16 years of experience in treatment of orthopedics and pain conditions. O’Brien can be reached through North Tahoe Physical Therapy at 775-831-6600 or through this web site contact form.
