MN Women's Care Provider Profile
Annie Frazier, DPT
Annie moved to Minnesota after she finished her doctoral studies in physical therapy. She was a scholarship dancer at the University of Kansas and majored in Health, Sport and Exercise Science/Pre-PT. She earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
Annie's calling to women's health happened during PT school. She did several internships and knew right away that whe wanted to focus a good portion of her work on women's health physical therapy. After graduation she worked as a general outpatient orthopedic therapist for 8 years – gaining tremendous experience in all types of physical therapy while training and getting more experience in women's health. She received certifications in a number of different areas of specialization.
Annie really longed for a more of a focus on women's health. She opened her own practice where Minnesota Women's Care found her and convinced her to join our team.
About her specialization, Annie says:
"Many pelvic conditions and dysfunctions result in the loss of basic functions and can greatly affect quality of life for many women. I love pelvic health rehabilitation because I get to help change the quality of women's lives for the better!
Also, for so long this population has been underserved in the rehabilitation world. As research continues to grow in this area we are beginning to understand the vast benefits of conservative care for those suffering from pelvic dysfunctions. I feel many musculoskeletal injuries stem from having a weak core and/or not understanding how to properly engage it. I love being able to help my patients develop a healthy core and pelvic floor – and seeing the difference it makes in their life."
