I have had interstitial cystitis with unbearable pain. I had gone to more than five urologists and no one was helping me. Finally, I went to Dr. Figueroa, who told me I needed a Physical Therapist. I thought to myself, “how can a physical therapist help me?” Now, I am so thankful for Lauradonna D’Antoni, DPT. I never thought I would be feeling the way I am today – pain free. If I ever have any type of pelvic floor dysfunction again, physical therapy is the way I will go.
