Meet Dr. Amanda Isen, PT, DPT

Physical Therapist

I entered Physical Therapy school with the intention of specializing in Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy, and I’m thrilled to be part of PRISM where I can practice both at the highest level. About a dozen years ago, a physical therapist was the first person who took my then-undiagnosed hEDs symptoms seriously and, as someone who has always been interested in biomechanics and movement therapies, it didn't take me long to become interested in the profession. When I started my PT journey, I wasn't sure if I would ever be well enough to go to grad school, but knew that if I ever was I would earn my DPT. I entered this field to help people with hypermobility disorders like myself gain more independence and function and I cannot express the magnitude of my excitement to be part of the PRISM team, where I am also now a very happy patient!

I earned my BA from the University of Wisconsin in Madison and my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the George Washington University. While finishing my DPT, I began the process of earning my CAPP (Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy) from the APTA, one of the highest designations in pelvic floor Physical Therapy. I've completed rigorous internships with focuses on manual therapy and pelvic health, and have done a month of dedicated training with Dr. Zingman and the PRISM team as well. I utilize direct and indirect techniques, activator, muscle energy, craniosacral techniques, and work on breathing, ribcage and of course pelvic floor biomechanics in addition to full spine and joint care.

When I’m not busy doing continuing education to advance my Physical Therapy knowledge, I enjoy crafting, baking pies and spending time with my partner and cats. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals for better quality of life and freedom of movement.
