Meet Dr. Kailie Denham, DPT

Hello!  I grew up on a small farm in Elk, Washington.  I graduated from Riverside High School in Deer Park, WA where I played tennis and soccer.  When I was 15 years old I tore my ACL playing soccer and had reconstructive surgery.  It was during my rehabilitation that I discovered physical therapy.  I received my bachelors degree in 2004 from Eastern Washington University in Human Biology and then went on to graduate school at Eastern Washington University, where I received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2007.  I have worked in the geriatric setting for 10 years, but it wasn't until 2014 when I became pregnant with my first child, that I discovered my true passion in the area of women's health.  

 

A textbook pregnancy followed by an almost perfect vaginal delivery should leave me with a perfect, uncomplicated, postpartum experience, right?  Wrong!!!!  Soon after delivery of my daughter, I discovered that I had stress urinary incontinence, diastasis rectus abdominis and a symptomatic grade 2 cystocele.  I immediately began my own pelvic rehabilitation and further continuing education.  No more stress urinary incontinence, my diastasis is improving and I have no symptoms of a prolapse, however, It is still a grade 2.  Thankfully, most of my improvement came in my first and second postpartum year, all while participating in my exercise of choice, CrossFit-modified as needed!  

 

I am a pelvic floor physical therapist dedicated to women and children.  I want to empower you through education.  I strongly feel that childhood bedwetting and pee and poop leakage as well as pregnancy and postpartum education for women is severely lacking and I am striving to change this in my community.  I have continued education from Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute, Julie Wiebe, PT and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist Certification, to name a few.  I treat pelvic floor dysfunction including but not limited to prolapse, pelvic pain, bowel and bladder incontinence and diastasis rectus abdominis in pregnancy, postpartum and the athletic female.  When I am not working, I enjoy traveling, CrossFit, backpacking, rock climbing and anything outdoors with my husband and daughters.  I have a special interest in the athletic female, especially those with prolapse and they are some of my favorite clients to work with!  I give glory to God for this amazing opportunity and my many blessings. I look forward to supporting you while helping you reach your goals!  

 

Thank you, Kailie
