Honoring a Pioneer of Physical Therapy

On January 28, 2006 the world of physical therapy lost one of its most influential pioneers. Florence Peterson Kendall championed for physical therapy in the 1930s when this country did not believe in its relevance. She wrote the book that has become the gold standard for the profession.

Her career spanned 75 years. Even in her hospice bed, she continued to work, giving treatment advice to nurses and their families. She truly touched everyone that she met. She was an incredible woman.

There are many pelvic pain sufferers out there who have benefited from physical therapy. I know I have; and I thought you might want to know who to thank, in part, for the treatment you have received.
