Laura Horn, MPT

Laura opened her Pasadena practice in 2012, after twelve years of working in Los Angeles and Pasadena based clinics as a Manual Orthopedic and Pelvic Health Therapist. Laura’s post-graduate study continues to focus on female and male pelvic floor dysfunctions, pregnancy, and post-partum patient care. She views each patient case holistically, and integrates manual therapy techniques with traditional therapeutic and Pilates-based exercise to tailor individualized treatment plans. Her personal experience with two pregnancies and raising her boys (now 13 and 15) gave her invaluable insight into the pregnancy and postpartum issues encountered and often misunderstood by many women. This experience has led her to develop unique rehab programs for busy moms.

Laura has had the good fortune to work with various multi-disciplinary teams throughout Southern California, addressing pelvic floor dysfunction and women’s health needs. As former adjunct faculty at Mount St. Mary’s College DPT program, Laura has lectured and advised research in Pilates rehabilitation, pelvic floor dysfunctions, and pre and post natal conditions. She is tireless in her efforts to pass on her knowledge to others working in Pelvic’s Wellness and Fitness. As an advocate for the work, she has addressed local community centers, cancer support groups, and fitness studios.
