Upon licensure, she began specializing in treatment of the pelvic floor and is currently studying to sit for the Women’s Health Clinical Specialist (WCS) Board Certification exam. While she is most passionate about assisting patients to overcome a variety of pelvic health conditions, Khaleela also loves working with patients recovering from orthopedic injuries, post-op rehabilitation, older adults, and anyone striving to optimize their functional performance. 

 

Eternally in pursuit of continuing education, Khaleela has completed courses in Dry Needling, Cervicothoracic Manipulation, Lumbosacral Manipulation, Lower Extremity Sports Rehabilitation, Intrapartum and Obstetric Considerations, and Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation through the Herman and Wallace Institute.

She is intentional about fitting patients with exercises that are not only targeted toward their goals, but realistic to their lifestyles. Many pelvic floor conditions are tied to stress or environmental factors, and her holistic approach incorporates behavioral change and a referral network of inclusive providers to help address symptoms and their underlying origins. With a combination of movement, manual therapy, strengthening, and education she believes every patient can learn the skills they need to live full, functional, and rewarding lives
