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. She has extensive experience with pregnant and postpartum women and has a special interest in bringing female athletes back to their full potential after pregnancies.
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. She is also a Pilates instructor, marathon runner, and an avid swimmer.
The following is a summary of Irene’s most relevant continuing education and related certifications:
