Stephany Tritt, PT, DPT

¡También hablo español!

After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from UC Santa Cruz, Stephany earned her Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from Mount St. Mary’s University then expanded further with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Western University. For the first twelve years of her career, she treated a multitude of orthopedic and neurological diagnoses with a focus on treating people suffering from persistent pain. Stephany has treated people with a wide variety of complicated persistent pain diagnoses such as: Fibromyalgia, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), chronic migraines, persistent low back pain and persistent pelvic pain.

Those with persistent pelvic pain ignited a curiosity and the desire to further explore pelvic health. She strives to improve her skills by regularly attending continuing education classes and has received the Certification of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy Program (CAPP-Pelvic) through the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). She has now treated a variety of pelvic related diagnoses in both women and men such as:

  • Urinary and fecal incontinence
  • Urinary frequency
  • Pregnancy related symptoms
  • Post-natal symptoms
  • Diastasis Rectus Abdominus (DRA)
  • Constipation
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)
  • Vaginismus
  • Testicular pain

Stephany finds satisfaction providing care for those who feel they have exhausted all options to treat their condition. She aims to help people find confidence in their own bodies and take control of their symptoms. She uses a variety of interventions to help people get back to a more fulfilling quality of life and back to activities they enjoy.

Some interventions she uses:

  • Exercise and functional movement strategies
  • Manual techniques like strain/counterstrain and trigger point release, joint mobilizations
  • Education on body mechanics, anatomy and physiology, neurophysiology of pain
  • Guidance on behavioral changes to mitigate aggravating factors
  • Mindfulness/relaxation techniques to calm the nervous system and anxiety.

When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her two sons and husband, exercising in a variety of different ways and traveling anywhere she’s never been before. She also enjoys volunteering her time at Elizabeth House in Pasadena to educate pregnant women who are housing insecure about the implications of pregnancy and delivery on the pelvic floor. ¡También hablo español!

Testimonial by A.B.

Before I was referred to Heather Jeffcoat I was living in a nightmare. I had been married to my husband for three years and I was suffering from Vaginismus. That all changed when I visited my OBGYN and she said she knew of someone with a great success rate. To be honest I was hesitant at first because my first doctor had already told me that all I needed to do was order dilators from the internet and I should overcome my problem. She was wrong because I had followed the book on how to use the dilators with absolutely no advancements in my condition. However, that all changed when I went in for my first visit and Heather took the time to explain my condition and how we were going to work together to overcome it.

I remember leaving her office with a glimmer of hope that I could live a normal life. As my sessions continued I began to see immediate results. With only four sessions and a strict dedication to my home programs I was cured of Vaginismus. In the beginning of this process I was made aware that my health insurance company might not cover the costs, which was disappointing but today I can say one hundred percent that it was the best money I ever spent. Now thanks to Heather I am finally enjoying my life to the fullest with my husband. Thank you Heather, I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate all that you have done for me. I will never forget it. Those who are suffering from these types of conditions don’t be afraid because she makes you feel so comfortable and the end result is worth it. Good luck to you all and I hope you experience the success I have.

I have been going to see Heather for a while now, and I can't tell you enough how much she has improved my quality of life. Heather specializes in issues like pelvic floor, but I see her for other orthopedic issues.

I have a lot of chronic joint pain and dysfunction issues (back, hips, neck) that require that have ongoing physical therapy maintenance. The effects of my problem joints/areas overlap and interconnect with each other in complex ways, so helping me requires really having a complete understanding of the entire skeletal and muscular system. Pain does not always appear where the problem actually is, the human body is a twisty, many-layered puzzle. I have an exercise program I do at home and I am very functional, but there are just something things I need a PT to help me out with.

I wanted to thank you so much for helping me get through something I thought I may never be able to. We have achieved pain-free intercourse and this has really solidified our marriage. We are so grateful to you for all the work you do! Thank you!!

Femina PT (née Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy) has been such an answer to prayer, i'm so glad I found them! I've been struggling with vaginismus my whole life, but didn't have a name for it until about 6 or 7 months ago. Even once I did have a name for it though, I didn't know where to begin in getting help. My OB/GYN had me get a set of dilators, but I couldn't even insert the smallest one by myself. Most times I tried I just ended up frustrated and in tears. I felt really alone, like I was broken and didn't have the energy to keep trying. When I got engaged a few months ago though, I realized I needed to get answers so i wasn't dreading my honeymoon.

Testimonial by Julie T.

Femina PT (née Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy) has honestly changed my life. Before receiving treatment at Femina, I was going doctor to doctor to try and find the answer to my pelvic pain. It has taken me YEARS to find someone that can help fix this. It wasn't until my gynecologist recommended your clinic that I finally felt relief. My pelvic pain is almost gone, and granted I still have a lot more to work on with Laureen (my PT), my original problem is nearly cured. I am so grateful to her.

What is even better is she gave me practical exercises to do at home that were not tedious and provided instant (and lasting) relief. Although I mainly work with Laureen, my interaction with the owner (Heather) has been great. She is very generous, kind, and committed to her business.

It hurts to know there are women out there suffering who will never know or have the opportunity to work with women like Laureen and Heather because this issue is hardly talked about and this field is so rare. I hope more doctors and physical therapists see the value in this work and can relieve more woman of their pain.

Testimonial by J.H.

My last appointment with Heather was over 6 years ago but I still think of her every day. I don’t take for granted that I can easily get out of bed, care for my two active and busy young boys, run, play tennis, clean my house, or sit at a desk for several hours at a time. None of these tasks were easy for me before meeting Heather. Eight years ago my car was struck from behind by a tractor trailer that was estimated to have been speeding. I spent 3 years working with different PTs and Drs trying to heal and move on with my life. When I became pregnant and the hormone relaxin that “relaxes” all the joints of the body and the additional weight gain erased all my progress and I was suddenly in a lot of pain again. My OB sent me to Heather for one last try.
