GRACE PRETE, DPT
Hello, My name is Grace Prete, and I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy specializing in women’s pelvic health concerns, including urinary and bowel incontinence, straining, urgency, frequency, pre and post-delivery concerns, as well as pain conditions, including vaginismus, vulvodynia, PCOS, Endometriosis, and PGAD to say a few. I decided to go into women’s health because I love taking a holistic approach and recognize that women benefit significantly from looking at the whole picture. Also, women’s sexual health and wellness are grossly underserved and underrecognized, and I wanted to provide a service for those searching near and far for help.
I absolutely love what I do and am excited to help you on your wellness journey with various manual, educational, and specific exercise techniques tailored to your needs. In my free time, I enjoy staying active with rollerblading, running, snowboarding, reading, playing the guitar, and singing!
