Whitney Sippl, DPT
Whitney is passionate about pre/postnatal care and believes physical therapy services during pregnancy and after delivery should be standard of care in the US, like it is in other countries. She is devoted to promoting awareness, well being, and healing of her patients with a goal of empowering women during the prenatal and postnatal periods to address any of their discomforts or concerns. Many women are told that symptoms such as incontinence, painful intercourse, scar pain, pelvic girdle/back pain, or abdominal separation are normal after having a baby; however, although these conditions may be common, they are not “normal” and there are many techniques available to address these concerns.
She loves teaching women simple ways to take care of themselves while their bodies are changing during pregnancy and enjoys helping women heal and get their bodies back after their journey through pregnancy and childbirth. She got to experience first hand how the body changes during pregnancy and after birth as she welcomed her daughter in April 2014 and son in June 2017.
She currently teaches a free "Prenatal & Postpartum Physical Health & Recovery Class" at various locations around Orange County every month, has two online courses available from the Prenatal & Postnatal Classes link and speaks regularly for moms groups in Orange County.
Whitney is board certified as a women’s clinical specialist. Originally from Wisconsin, she received her Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin and went on to pursue her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree at Long Island University in Brooklyn, NY, graduating at the top of the class with a 4.0 GPA.
In her free time she enjoys playing beach volleyball, hiking, and traveling with her husband and two kids.
