ALL GENDERS WELCOME!
When I started my business in 2007, it was out of my passion to help women, but I quickly realized there was an underserved need to help the men and children of our community as well. Women's Health Physical Therapy has always been inclusive to all ages and genders, but in 2023, I took the leap to update my business name to reflect that inclusivity, and to be more welcoming to all patients.
Quality Care for Better Quality of Life
We at ISPPT/WHPT offer an innovative approach in a private, supportive environment.
Millions of people suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction which can lead to urinary and/or bowel incontinence, chronic pelvic pain, sexual problems, and elimination disorders.
Pregnancy, childbirth, chronic constipation, chronic coughing, improper lifting, surgery, traumatic falls, cancer, and aging, can all contribute to impairments including pelvic floor muscle tension, connective tissue dysfunction, adhesions, muscle weakness, and incoordination.
Pelvic floor therapy by a specially trained physical therapist can help!
Women's Health Physical Therapy, of Redding, California, was founded in an effort to address these very intimate issues in a discreet, educational and supportive environment, with a mission of providing the utmost in quality, evidenced-based, one-on-one care.
At Women's Health Physical Therapy, we understand the sensitive nature of these topics. We strive to offer expert care in a comfortable environment, with an emphasis on early patient education, to ease your fears and maximize patient/therapist communication.
Not only will patients undergoing pelvic floor therapy receive individualized care, but they will also receive the latest research and treatment methods for the most advanced plan of care.
Whether it is for prevention or restoration services, ISPPT/WHPT is quality that patients can trust.
Each patient receives a comprehensive evaluation, which may include postural analysis, observation and palpation of involved musculoskeletal structures, range of motion, tone and strength testing, and sensory and reflex testing. Evaluation procedures may also include vaginal dilator assessment, and/or intra-vaginal, intra-rectal, or peri-rectal sEMG biofeedback assessment. Once evaluation procedures are completed, an individualized plan of care and treatment goals are established. A detailed summary of your evaluation findings is provided to your referring provider, and routine progress reports are also completed.
Functional outcome questionnaires are routinely completed to establish starting baseline, to monitor progress, and to indicate readiness to transition to a safe home exercise program. It is our goal at ISPPT/WHPT to be respectful of your time, to communicate closely with other members of your healthcare team, and to assist you in your early transition to an independent home exercise program with self-management strategies in place.
Physical Therapy is not something "done to you", but rather, "something we do together." A strong emphasis is placed upon empowering our patients by providing them with the knowledge and skills to understand and manage their condition long-term.

I have known Brande Moffatt since I moved to Redding 18 years ago. Brande’s work as a pelvic physical therapist has been an immeasurable benefit to our community. Her ability to discern and treat problems, pain, and dysfunction in the pelvic floor is unlike any provider I have ever worked with.
Brande frequently helps her clients recover from surgery faster or avoid surgery altogether with her attention to teaching her clients how to understand and control the musculature, joints, and connective tissue of the pelvis.
It is not an understatement to assert that my patients do better and live better lives because of the work she does.
