Dr. Libby Trausch, PT, DPT

After 10 years as a doctor of physical therapy, Libby has created a niche practice in persistent pain, women’s health, and pelvic floor dysfunction. She has had 3 babies and experienced nearly every pelvic floor and low back symptom we treat, in addition to most kinds of birth (C-section, VBAC & almost home birth). She loves putting together the pieces and help people with the most complicated medical histories see a way forward, find relief, and even more importantly, rediscover hope. She has extensive training in Medical Therapeutic Yoga and weaves its’ theories and treatment techniques into all of her treatment sessions.  She loves traveling, walking, learning and teaching.

FAVORITE BREATHE. EVENT:

“Since I love teaching, my favorite Breathe events are our free workshops.  Once a month we have a free workshop to learn more about postpartum healing, back pain, preparing for birth, pelvic floor problems, essential oils and other pain problems. We love meeting people from our community and empowering them to help themselves!”

BEST PART OF YOUR JOB:

“The best part of my job is getting to be a part of each person’s journey – whether they are trying to run a marathon, pick up kiddos without pain, or reach a new goal, I love being a part of it. Hearing patient’s say “Because of Physical Therapy I can….” is one of the greatest gifts as a PT!”
