Hi, I am Dr. Mukta Chauhan!
I am a Pelvic Health Specialist and the face behind The Pelvic Connection.
I started my career as an orthopedic PT over 15 years ago in New Delhi, India. To pursue higher education, I moved to the US and received advanced training in Functional Manual Therapy from Institute of Physical Art (IPA). These courses helped me tremendously to treat my patients using the ‘whole body approach’. But, I soon realized that there was a missing link that was preventing me from offering holistic care to my patients. Learning about the pelvis was THAT missing link!
I took hundreds of hours of painstaking, specialized trainings in the field of Pelvic Health to finally become a certified Pelvic Health Specialist, and I am among the very few PTs in the US with a double board certification in both Orthopedics and Pelvic Health. This dual training has allowed me to understand the body at a much deeper level, and to offer better treatment and care to my patients.
As soon as I started working in the world of Pelvic Health, I saw the extent to which my patients’ thoughts and beliefs, their social atmosphere and their lifestyle choices affected their overall health. It was then that I realized that no amount of biomedical focus alone, focusing on just on their ‘tissues’, was likely to yield the positive outcomes both my patients and I were looking for. This motivated me to dive deeper into the world of neuroscience. I took several courses in Pain Science, and figured out some innovative ways in which I could bring individualized care to my patients, nurturing their entire ‘bio-psycho-social’ sphere.
If you are someone with bladder, bowel, sexual dysfunctions or pelvic pain, then let’s work together… I would be happy to help!
