Pam Bennett, PT

Pam joined Healing Hands as a Physical Therapist with over 38 years of experience, graduating from the University of Michigan in 1980 with a B.S in Physical Therapy.  She believes that one of her most important clinical roles is listening to a patient’s needs, understanding that patient holistically, and advocating for their care, be it through therapy or another avenue. Her strengths in patient care are treatment of male and female pelvic floor dysfunction,  hands on techniques, muscle imbalance correction, and therapeutic exercise education.  For Pam ,being a part of Healing Hands means that she is a member of a strong, diverse team. One of her joys is continued learning from her colleagues.

 Prior to being at Healing Hands, Pam worked 28 years at Chelsea Community Hospital where she developed her interest in pelvic floor health.  Other venues have included inpatient and outpatient care at both the Ann Arbor Veteran’s Hospital and St. Mary Hospital of Livonia, as well as outpatient care at Woodland Medical Center, and Home Health Care.

Of the many continuing education courses and approaches some of the primary influences for Pam are:

  • The Institute of Physical Art
  • Hermann and Wallace Institute
  • Mark Bookhout with his Therapeutic Approach to Spinal Care
  • Differentiating of Hip and Lumber Dysfunction
  • McConnell Approach to Knee Pain and Taping techniques
  • Membership in an Orthopedic Study Group with emphasis on Integrative Manuel Therapy
  • Membership in the Southeast Pelvic Floor Study Group
  • Individual Study in Yoga and Gyrotonics

When not working Pam enjoys campfires and kayaking in Northern Michigan with family and friends.
