Meet Dr. Riley Ootton, DPT

Dr. Riley Ootton – Physical Therapist and Director of Pelvic Health

Dr. Ootton received her Doctor of Physical Therapy, Masters of Science in Clinical Anatomy and Health Science, and her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Applied Physiology degrees all from the University of Delaware. She is the definition of a true “Blue Hen”!

While Riley has proved herself as an efficient and effective orthopedic clinician, she also has extensive experience as a pelvic floor physical therapist. She has experience treating women of all ages with varying pre natal, pregnancy and post partum conditions. Riley has also had countless patients with non-pregnancy related pelvic floor conditions. In an effort to advance her clinical expertise, Dr. Ootton has gone on to take multiple Herman and Wallace courses on pelvic pain, incontinence, constipation, DRA, prolapse, pregnancy and postpartum rehabilitation. Her treatment philosophy emphasizes educating her patients about relevant pelvic floor anatomy and physiology in order to better understand the human body and associated movement. She strives to empower her patients with the necessary tools to achieve their personalized goals.

Riley utilizes her advanced knowledge of both orthopedics, and pelvic health, to advocate for a method of holistic care that treats individuals as a whole rather than focusing on one particular portion of the body.
