14 years and has been specializing in women’s health since graduating from Northwestern University in Chicago in 2007. For the past 5 years

other Connective Tissue Dysfunctions (Lupus, Fibromyalgia, RA, Ankylosing spondylitis an others). As an active person herself, Adriana implements her “Mommy work outs” with functional pelvic floor
stabilization to help patients regain control over they bladder, bowel and musculoskeletal deficits. “Most people have a busy lifestyle and find difficult to make time to exercise and take care of their bodies.
As a clinician I try to make my patients fully engaged during our sessions. Patients learn about how to implement simple exercise routines into their daily living as well as to gradually adjust to a
healthier, more balanced lifestyle and increased control over their symptoms”. At Benefit PT patients will encounter one-of-a-kind experiences as Adriana assists their patient in designing individualized home exercise programs to meet their ability and needs.
