"We're the Cool Kids Now": An Interview with Dr. Carrie Pagliano

Can't wait for you to hear this conversation with Carrie Pagliano, past Academy President, course creator and founder of Carrie Pagliano Physical Therapy. Clinical and business pearls abound in this conversation - enjoy!

5 Reminders When Treating Chronic Pain

Pelvic PT Rising: The pelvic health tools to make you a better clinician and/or a more successful business owner. We want every single pelvic health practitioner to be more confident and successful in your practice and career!

  • Clinical Courses: Game-changing online courses to make you more confident, challenge your thinking and improve patient outcomes

  • Business Resources: Helping 500+ pelvic health practitioners confidently start, grow and build their dream business!


One of the most powerful points of this conversation was hearing from Carrie how she deliberately structures her business to support her time with family and her personal life.

She is not willing to compromise time with her family for her business and is unapologetic about it.

We also discuss Carrie's important work with the Academy of Pelvic Health, including being instrumental in changing the name (from the Section of Women's Health). We'll talk about the lessons she learned and how we can all do better at making our voices heard.

We also talk about how much the specialty has changed in the last two decades, new challenges facing therapists, Carrie's advice for newer therapists and how we're the cool kids now - check it out!
