I need to give a huge shout out to Kelsey Vagnoni of Personalized Physical Therapy. Just over two months ago, I consulted with her for my diastasis recti. I had a 6 cm separation, which if you know anything about diastasis, is very severe. Anyway, I'm happy to report that after only two months of working with Kelsey, my separation is just over 2cm (less than 2cm is considered normal). Hopefully, by next month, the separation will be less than 2cm and I can get back to working out like I used to. I'm ecstatic that I went from the possibility of surgery, to nearly normal. Each time I see Kelsey, she is very professional and empathetic-the perfect combination of knowledge and bedside manner.

If you are struggling with any post partum PT issues, I highly suggest you reach out to her. I can't sing her praises loud enough.

I saw Kelsey for prenatal visits in my third trimester and then postpartum soon after baby was born. She is brilliant, skilled, professional and extremely friendly. She works with my schedule while also working around the toddlers and my newborn. I believe she was instrumental in my quick labor as well as my speedy recovery. I was having terrible back and hip pain and Kelsey helped to get rid of that as well as the horrible shoulder pain I created from poor posture while breastfeeding. I highly recommend Kelsey!

Kelsey is amazing! She had my ab separation and back pain resolved within 5 visits! Her prices are reasonable and you can really connect with her about your health. I would definitely recommend her to any moms! New or seasoned!

I can’t recommend Kelsey enough! She’s very knowledgeable in what she does, and really helps you understand the issues going on with your body. She’s so friendly and compassionate which makes treatment that much better. She really helped me heal from giving birth to twins, and I am so happy I found her!

Kelsey has been a pleasure to work with. I had tried doing physical therapy through my HMO to address a hip injury. It was a horrible experience that was ineffective and left me unsure of what the problem was. A few months later, I was pregnant with my second child and my hip pain became unbearable. I had trouble walking, going up the stairs, and bending over to put my toddler into her crib. At our first appointment/assessment she was able to explain to me what she thought was happening with my hip and how we can go about trying to fix it. Initially, we met weekly and after only a few appointments my pain was about 90% gone. I met with her throughout my pregnancy to ensure good alignment and to keep my hip in check as my body stretched and expanded. I plan to have her assess me after the new baby arrives - checking for diastasis recti and my c-section scar. I highly recommend Kelsey. She was professional, knowledgeable, and 100% effective at addressing an issue that my HMO PT was unable to explain or resolve in a timely manner.

I'm amazed that Kelsey was able to help me so much in four visits. My csection was two years ago - I wish I had found her back then. But I'm so thankful she helped me recover and regain my strength and comfort.

I have had a very long recovery process for my diastisis recti healing journey. I have had DR since my first preganancy 8 years ago. After my 3rd pregnancy, my DR was the worst it's ever been. I had a over 4 cm separation and had tried multiple DR exercise programs, diet changes, and felt like I was at the end of my rope. I got a referral for Kelsey from my midwife at Bay Area Midwifery. Kelsey evaluated my situation with so much attention, care and knowledge. Even through my recovery exercises she encouraged me to keep at it, and not give up on myself even if I wasn't seeing results right away. She helped me eliminate exercises that were making my DR worse, so I could be on the path to recovery. She helped release and improve my problem areas in my body that were causing pain/tightness that I didn't even know was there! She always answered my questions and emails very promptly and supported me every single step of the way. Kelsey was also super personable, friendly, and easy to talk to. I loved how she could come into my home despite her busy schedule and make us feel so comfortable. I am now less than a cm and gap has nearly closed! I am so grateful for her expertise and amazing skill with postpartum healing! Thank you Dr. Vagnoni!!

I don’t know I would have been after my first pregnancy if I hadn’t met Kelsey!! She is so knowledgeable, very thorough (plus she comes to you, which is so helpful postpartum) and really takes the time to care for her patients. I can’t say enough good things about the work she does.

I can not recommend Kelsey enough. I have suffered from debilitating back and shoulder pain for 10 plus years. Kelsey’s hands-on and personalized approach to physical therapy has given me my freedom of movement back. Personalize Physical Therapy is the only place I recommend.

Every mom postpartum should go see Kelsey. I waited a year and wish I hadn't. She fixed my diastasis recti in one session, and was able to give insight on the pelvic and leg pain I had been experiencing postpartum, which lead to a diagnosis of a chronic condition. All other doctors wrote off the pain until Kelsey pinpointed it. She also broke up scar tissue around my c-section scar and basically got back to feeling myself again. Moms, you don't have to have a baby and then think that feeling "off" in your pelvic region is normal. Kelsey can adjust you!

I am so glad I reached out to Kelsey for my lower back injury. She is extremely knowledgeable and hands-on. I appreciated that each visit focused on physical treatment or massage, and not just directing me to complete certain exercises. I absolutely agree with Kelsey that moms should leave the hospital with a PT referral after having a baby. Kelsey’s work is amazing, and the added perks are that she will come to you and she’s fun to chat with!

It is hard to put into words the gratitude I have for Kelsey and her skills.  Iwas able to see her for multiple issues and each one was improved in just a few sessions.  Kelsey was incredible in helping me alleviate the pain and tightness in my c-section scar, close the gap in my abs, and improve my lower back pain.  After she healed my abdominal separation in just 2 sessions, I was hooked and had her take a look at what I thought was a pinched nerve in my upper back which had been plaguing me for years.  After seeing two different chiropractors and many massage therapists I had given up hope trying to fix it.  She was able to do so and find the spot in just one session.  I cannot recommend her enough.  For any woman who has given birth or any person that lives in pain, Kelsey is your answer.

I worked with Kelsey post pregnancy on some scarring and diastasis recti. She is friendly, professional, knowledgeable and reliable. I thoroughly enjoyed our visits and am sad that they are over, but happy that she helped me so much that I no longer have any problems for her to fix! She is definitely worth seeing and would highly recommend. I wish I had seen her sooner. THANK YOU Kelsey!

Kelsey is an even better miracle worker than I could have ever imagined!  I had horrible back pain 3 weeks ago and couldn't even sit up and get off a table by myself.  It felt like my lower body was kind of detached from my body.  I found out that I had diastasis recti, a tight c-scar, and tight SI joints and hip flexors.  I've seen Kelsey 3 times and my abdominal separation is already closed, I no longer have horrible back pain, and my husband told me I'm no longer walking like a robot.  She's 1000000% worth paying out of pocket and I can submit the receipts to my insurance.

I can't believe it took me this long to find out about Kelsey and Lindsey.  My oldest is 7 and my youngest is 3.  Having three big c-section babies back to back I just figured that this is how my body was going to be for the rest of my life.  I had constant back pain, tightness in my hips and the ever present mom pooch that I could not get rid of no matter what I tried.  On my very first visit, I knew I was in the right place.  I felt like I was finally getting listened to and finally getting the answers I needed to start healing.  I am so grateful to Kelsey and Lindsey for putting me back together again after all this time.  I cannot recommend them enough.  Thank you so much ladies!
