Dr. Lindsay Durand Massumi, PT, DPT, is a licensed pelvic health and orthopedic physical therapist and health coach practicing in Northern Virginia. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Creighton University in Omaha, NE, and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the prestigious Washington University in St. Louis Medical School.
Growing up a competitive gymnast, dancer, and track athlete, Lindsay always knew she wanted to enter the field of physical therapy. Dr. Lindsay then discovered pelvic health physical therapy as an undergrad and completed her first independent research study on joint mechanics of walking in high heel shoes. Since undergrad, Dr. Lindsay has been involved in conducting and promoting physical therapy research to advance outcomes for patients suffering from low back pain and pelvic floor dysfunction. For three years, Lindsay was responsible for the dissemination of pelvic and women’s health research for the Academy of Pelvic Health, helping to advance current evidence and practice in the field.
Before becoming a physical therapist, Dr. Lindsay worked as a personal trainer and strength and conditioning coach, which helped her discover her passion for strength training and teaching women to lift weights. She has nearly a decade of experience in personal training and coaching athletes of all ages. Lindsay is an active member of the American Physical Therapy Association and the Academy of Pelvic Health, where she has served in multiple leadership roles and volunteer positions.
Lindsay loves using social media to spread the word about pelvic health physical therapy and wants everyone to realize the benefits that exist from connecting with your pelvic floor. Having experienced pelvic floor dysfunction herself, Dr. Lindsay understands how impactful rehabbing your pelvic floor can be; for her, it was life-changing. With her clients, Dr. Lindsay uses a combination of movement analysis, prescriptive exercise, and manual techniques (myofascial release, dry needling, taping, IASTM, and more) to help people get out of pain fast and achieve long-lasting results. In her free time, Lindsay enjoys hiking, working out, practicing her handstands, and spending time with her husband, family, and cats. Lindsay is currently going through her own pregnancy journey and is looking forward to rehabbing her core and pelvic floor alongside her clients in the immediate postpartum period.
