Anna Larson DPT

Meet Anna Larson, DPT

Anna (she/her/hers) is a Washington state native. She earned her Bachelor's of Science in Public Health with a minor in nutrition at the University of Washington. After a couple of years working for nonprofits in Seattle, she returned to the University of Washington to obtain her Doctorate of Physical Therapy. Her clinical experiences included rotations in: acute care, outpatient neurological rehabilitation, outpatient orthopedic and sports. She also participated in a research project during her DPT program regarding breathing biomechanics and pelvic floor function with Kathe Wallace, a leader in the pelvic floor rehabilitation field. This experience ignited her passion for learning all she could about pelvic floor function and dysfunction. 

Since graduating, she has taken several continuing education courses specific to pelvic floor rehabilitation through Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute and the American Physical Therapy Association’s Section on Pelvic Health. Anna has a special interest in guiding patients through their pregnancy and postpartum journeys who may be experiencing: low back pain, SI joint dysfunction, stress incontinence, urge incontinence, prolapse, diastasis recti, and pelvic pain disorders. She also loves to provide push-prep knowledge for patients in order to feel empowered and educated on options for their birth plan and aftercare. She has a strong orthopedic foundation and has treated many orthopedic/sports conditions including:

  • herniated discs
  • degenerative disc disease
  • spinal stenosis
  • rotator cuff pathologies
  • knee pain disorders
  • osteoarthritis
  • labral tears
  • aftercare following total joint replacements
  • chronic pain disorders
  • cervical and lumbar radiculopathy
  • sciatica
  • foot/ankle injuries

Anna’s clinical philosophy involves using evidenced-based practice along with an individualized treatment plan for each patient. Anna believes healing a physical injury requires incorporating all aspects of an individual; mental, emotional, environmental, social, and biological.

Prior to physical therapy school, she was a yoga instructor for four years. She loves to incorporate this training into her pelvic floor treatment sessions using breathwork and stretches as a way to downregulate the nervous system as a starting point for all her patients. 

In her life outside of the clinic, she loves being active outdoors; hiking, playing beach volleyball, cooking new recipes, group fitness classes, going to concerts, and discovering new artists to listen to.

Testimonial by Jackie W.

I was in multiple car accidents a decade ago, and I have been to many physical therapists through the years without success. They found the root of my lower back pain problems and after nearly a decade of barely being able to walk I finally can again without pain. They are also the best pelvic floor pts and the only ones who found the connection between my pelvic floor and lower back problems. If you need help with physical pain, they are your answer.

Testimonial by M.M.

My husband and I were married for 5 years and unable to have intercourse, but I never knew why. After numerous awful experiences at doctor’s offices (where many doctors told me I “just needed to relax”), a surgery that didn’t fix the problem, and a year of owning dilators that didn’t get me anywhere, someone finally referred me to Heather for Physical Therapy. I finally had answers and information from someone who knew exactly what I was dealing with!

Testimonial by Amanda W.

Heather's unique physical therapy program literally changed my life! After years of struggling with vaginismus, a condition that made it impossible for me to have intercourse and very difficult to use tampons without pain, a gynecologist referred me to Heather. I was nervous for my first appointment, but Heather's professional and friendly demeanor put me at ease. She did a great job explaining each technique she was using to help my muscles relax. Heather uses a combination of internal and external stretches and exercises to relax the pelvic floor and build muscle strength. Her specially developed home program helped me quickly recover from an issue that seemed insurmountable before meeting Heather. She was optimistic about my progress and incredibly encouraging. Less than 6 months after my first session, I was able to have pain-free sex for the first time in my life! If you are suffering from vaginismus or any other pelvic floor issues, I highly recommend making an appointment with Heather and reading her book!

Testimonial by S.B.

As someone who suffered the debilitating physical and emotional effects of vaginismus (as well as a complicated history of back injuries) for more than 15 years, I thought a "normal" life was just a fantasy. Then I found Heather.
