Why Pelvic Health?

Pelvic health affects everything we do.  Difficult bowel and bladder function, pregnancy & postpartum pain, and decreased mobility after an abdominal surgery are among the challenges that can  limit the most basic daily activities.  Physical therapy with a trained specialist can help!



Our Mission

With a passion for lifelong movement, Bess Mathisen, DPT founded Inertia with the mission to help each patient reach his or her individual goals.  Whether that is working in the garden, wrestling with grandkids, running a marathon, or playing 9 holes of golf.  We feel better, think straighter, and smile more when we move and the team at Inertia believes that our physical therapy approach can help you achieve your goals.
