About

Dr. Lia Palomino, PT, DPT

Hi! I'm Lia, the founder and pelvic physical therapist at Michigan Pelvic Rehab and Wellness. Michigan Pelvic Rehab and Wellness was founded upon the passion of providing individualized and personalized care in pelvic health physical therapy. Pelvic floor physical therapy is a quickly growing specialty in healthcare, however there remains a limited number of passionate providers to serve this much needed population. Treatment for pelvic floor dysfunction is progressing everyday and doesn’t have to be scary and unknown; and may just be what YOU need to live your best life. 

 

My philosophy is that pelvic floor physical therapy should be one-on-one care the ENTIRE treatment session with an individual, personalized treatment approach, allowing the appropriate attention to detail to meet each patient’s needs. Here at Michigan Pelvic Rehab and Wellness that is exactly what you will get. Me, the entire treatment session focused on YOU, your care, and your goals.
