Sarah Levitt’s passion is helping people overcome the day-to-day challenges in relation to pelvic floor dysfunction. Many patients can be embarrassed or uncomfortable, Sarah puts patients at ease within their first meeting.
Sarah’s passion in pelvic health began in 2005 when she took an introductory course in pelvic floor rehabilitation. After a decade of working within this patient population, she received her certification in pelvic floor rehabilitation in 2015. This professional distinction signifies that she is an expert in pelvic health rehabilitation and has passed rigorous testing to demonstrate her expertise. She is a member of the Michigan Pelvic Floor Study Group, where pelvic floor practitioners throughout the state of Michigan get together to discuss patient cases and share knowledge about new treatment techniques and information received at conferences/continuing education courses. She is also a member of the International Pelvic Pain Society, which is a health organization established to help educate medical professionals on how to diagnose and manage chronic pelvic pain and to help raise awareness of this condition.
She received her master’s degree in physical therapy from Oakland University in 2004. In addition to pelvic floor rehabilitation, her post graduate focus includes visceral manipulation, which is a gentle manual therapy that aids the body’s own ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunction. She also utilizes various other techniques and modalities in her practice and they include the Graston Technique, kinesiology taping, Muscle Energy Technique, myofascial release, and strain/counter-strain.
Sarah practices out of our Clarkston location and since joining the Advanced Physical Therapy Center team, has greatly expanded our pelvic floor rehab program by bringing a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience.
