Perspectives Physical Therapy
Being pregnant and then postpartum recreates a woman’s body. It is our belief that women should have the rehab, care, guidance and support to go through these changes and address any body pain or painful movement patterns with knowledge, science, compassion and individual treatment plans.

"Dr. Corinna helped to heal my diastis recti, improve mobility in my c section scar, alleviate pain in my hips and quads - and more. She is SO kind, gentle, compassionate, understanding and makes you feel so comfortable! She also helped me to have a deeper understanding of the inner workings of my body, and gave me so many wonderful exercises and tips to incorporate in my day to day life. Thanks so much!"
"I feel lucky to have worked with Corinna throughout my pregnancy to regain mobility and stay active! Pregnancy created so many changes in my body, but when my hips started having problems to the point that I couldn't do normal activities like walking the dog I knew that I needed help. I was discouraged about how hard I thought the remaining months of pregnancy would be, but Corinna immediately gave me confidence that pregnancy didn't have to be this way! Corinna saw the problem immediately and worked with me to build a personalized plan to create the flexibility and strength that I needed. Before we started working together I had problems walking around the block and after several weeks I was able to start hiking and enjoying the outdoor activities I love again. Beyond being an incredible PT, Corinna was also an amazing support person for pregnancy as a mom herself. I highly recommend working with her!"
As an athlete for many years, having twins really took a toll on my body. I couldn’t move the same or engage my core the way I was used to during heavy lifts and intense exercise. Working with Corinna helped me reconnect everything- my breathing, movement and muscles. Everything started working harmoniously again. She taught me several breathing techniques to implement during exercise and helped me get back to a place where I didn’t have to think about it so hard and I could just move properly again. She also gave me core-rebuilding exercise for my slight distaste’s recti. Aside from being extremely knowledgeable in post-partum health she is extremely warm, understanding and patient. She is a pleasure to work with."
"I had 3 kids, each one a year apart from the last, and on my 3rd child I was diagnosed with symphysis pubis dysfunction. I was in so much pain on my right side that it hurt to stand, walk, and sleep on my side. I knew I needed to do something about it, but a regular PT never could fully address my issue. Thankfully I found Corinna. I messaged her and told her my symptoms and would love to see her. Corinna talked with me via chat and then she suggested we do a virtual visit! She was so accommodating regarding my busy schedule and location. We went over some movements that would help me relieve some pain and then after the call she sent me this app where she inputted all her recommended movements with a schedule and time log. She follows up with me to make sure I’m on track and feeling good, but not in a pushy way. I would highly recommend Corinna to any one who needs help with their women’s health issues."
"Dr. Corinna is amazing! She helped me with prolapse after I gave birth to my second son and I feel so much better. She helped me learn about how my body works and gave me exercises to rehab my entire pelvic floor. She also taught me functional moves to use in everyday life to protect myself from injury again. I’d definitely recommend her!"
"I started seeing Dr. Lau to help me manage my diastasis recti after having my second child. I had a pretty significant gap, as well as back pain and an extremely weak core. Working with her has been so helpful for many reasons. First of all, she's incredibly kind, gentle, and compassionate which makes the whole process much easier from an emotional and mental health standpoint. Additionally, she's super knowledgable and has taught me so much about my core and pelvic floor muscles. I've learned how to engage muscles I didn't even know existed! She customizes my exercise plans to target my weaknesses while also making them practical so I can do them from home. I feel genuinely supported by Dr. Lau and would recommend her to anyone looking to rehabilitate their DR!"
"Corinna's professional expertise paired with her Crossfit experience made her the ideal PT to assess and assist me after my second child was born. She knew exactly the kind of intensity I was used to performing at prior to my pregnancy and also understood what my goals were postpartum. After a thorough assessment, we worked on a plan that basically built my strength from (almost literally) the bottom up. She gave me the confidence to navigate that first postpartum year, knowing that the strategies and techniques we practiced were protective and strengthening to my body. I highly recommend that any postpartum person, regardless of what your fitness level is and what your goals are, make an appointment with Corinna. Your body will thank you for it!"
