Aquacare Physical Therapy is pleased to welcome Kelly Fortner MSPT/Pelvic Floor Clinical Specialist to our Millsboro, Delaware clinic(located in Oak Orchard Medical Plaza). Kelly is originally from Easton, Pennsylvania, and working alongside Dr. Robert Echenberg, world renown gynecologist specializing in pelvic pain. She always knew she wanted to work with people, and when she became a physical therapist she knew she was right at home. It became even better when she began to specialize in Women’s Health Physical Therapy. Working with patients with very intimate and private issues is very challenging yet incredibly rewarding when you know you have helped someone overcome a large hurdle in their life.
Kelly received her Bachelor of Science in Clinical Science with a minor in Psychology from Ithaca College. She then went on to receive her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Ithaca College in 2008. She has been practicing Physical Therapy for 9 years with a specialty in women’s and men’s pelvic health for the past 8 years. She has a true passion for working with patients with pelvic pain, urinary or fecal incontinence, pre/post-partum pain or dysfunction, constipation etc. She is CAPP-Pelvic certified (Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy) by the APTA and is working towards her CAPP-OB (Certificate of Achievement in Pregnancy /Postpartum). Kelly also works with all orthopedic conditions. She has training in movement impairment syndromes, soft tissue and myofascial techniques, and visceral manipulation.
Kelly strives to make the patient experience a special one. She makes sure to treat everyone like family and get them back to their normal function as quickly as possible.
