Dr. Bonder aims to decrease pain in her patients while improving their quality of life.  Her particular interest in treating musculoskeletal causes of pelvic pain, pelvic girdle pain and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction is a unique perspective on conditions which are quite common yet often overlooked, misdiagnosed and under treated.  Pelvic pain can have multiple etiologies but in all of them, the muscles, joints and nerves of the pelvis are almost always affected, either primarily or secondarily. Dr. Bonder offers non-surgical treatment modalities to help improve patients’ symptoms and overall health.

Dr. Bonder’s expertise in women’s health also allows her to give care to pregnant and postpartum women who are suffering with such conditions as back pain, pelvic pain, incontinence or diastasis recti.  Many patients are unaware of potential treatment options for these issues so Dr. Bonder’s goal is to assist women feel better so they can continue to enjoy this special time in their life.
