Irene Hernández is a physical therapist specializing in Pelvic Physical Therapy. She is also a trainer and educator in the use of Indiba Radio Frequency for Orthopedic and Pelvic Physical Therapy.  Irene is an expert at treating pelvic floor dysfunction, and chronic pelvic pain for men, women, teens and children.

Irene received her Physical Therapy degree in Spain, from Universidad Europea de Madrid, and her postgraduate degree in Urogynecological Physical Therapy from Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha in Spain. She is also a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher and Mat and Reformer Pilates instructor. Irene started her professional life as a Software Engineer. She graduated from a six-year program in Spain, in Universidad Politécnica de Madrid in 1993, and worked in the IT industry for 15 years in Spain and the U.S. However, after exploring the therapeutic solutions to minimize the pain she was experiencing from scoliosis and the pelvic discomfort, she chose to switch careers to something she found more meaningful and become certified in Yoga in the Iyengar Method and study the Somatic body awareness method with Bonnie Bainbridge-Cohen. This knowledge ultimately crystallized her decision to become a Physical Therapist, and later to specialize in Pelvic Physical Therapy.

Irene’s unique approach to physical therapy and pelvic health marries her love of technology and algorithmic decision making with her understanding of the body from the standpoint of improved awareness and sensory experience. Irene enjoys incorporating Yoga and body-mind knowledge into the therapeutic process to help improve body awareness and understand how different factors such as activity, posture, emotions, etc. may cause or aggravate symptoms.

I have experienced the Indiba AT7 one month after my delivery. I had several sessions and I was able to feel the effect after each one. My scar was definitely less painful and my skin was softer and able to stretch more. The Indiba helped me to recover and feel better. I highly recommend Indiba sessions at the right time because I can tell it is very beneficial to improve scar healing and allow the pelvic to get strength again (especially with a combination of exercises). I really appreciated the work Irene did with me. Sutton Place PT is very professional and their knowledge was obvious and strong.

I have been treated by multiple physical therapists for vulvodynia and dyspareunia over the last seven years. I had some improvement from traditional treatment, but I was never able to get over the hurdle of penetrative intercourse without significant pain. My husband and I wanted to start a family, and I was losing hope that we would be able to do so naturally. Then, I found a physical therapist who used Indiba AT7. Within a month of treatment with the device, I was able to successfully have intercourse for the first time in years. I'm very thankful that this device exists and works effectively for this difficult condition.
