Buffy Stinchfield



Buffy became a passionate advocate for women’s and pelvic health after years of suffering in silence with pelvic pain. She realized she finally needed to specialize in pelvic health after the birth of her first child in 2008 when her labor was anything but simple and her recovery was even more difficult. As she began her studies into this speciality, she was floored at the staggering statistics in pelvic health that pointed to the fact that pelvic health issues are VERY common. All of those years suffering in silence thinking she was ALONE should never have happened… and it is STILL the case for so many.

She helps women of all ages resolve and overcome issues including pelvic pain, endometriosis, bladder pain syndrome, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary leakage, bowel leakage, constipation, tailbone pain/injuries, postpartum recovery, back and neck pain, hip pain, and most orthopedic conditions.

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” ― Albus Dumbledore.

She is also a staunch advocate for pregnant women to be able to be assessed and empowered during their pregnancy to help them optimize their preparation for labor and delivery as well as help prepare them with tools needed for early recovery from vaginal or cesarean births. Pregnancy is the BEST time to find out if there are issues with pelvic floor muscle coordination, pain, and ability to actually “push” during labor.

She is committed to getting to the WHY to help her patients heal for good instead of just treating the symptoms, addresses the WHOLE BODY, uses a combination of hands on techniques and restorative exercises to help her patients achieve real success. She knows firsthand how busy life can get, and won’t overwhelm her patients with too many exercises to do at home.

Buffy earned a Master of Physical Therapy degree in 2006 from California State University, Northridge. She has continued her education in women’s health post graduate school with the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute and many other courses since 2010.

Buffy is married with 3 children, co-op homeschools, is an old dancer with kids who now love dance as well, is a Harry Potter nerd, loves to hike, run, go to Barre3 classes, and plan and go on family vacations.

    “Before my pelvic surgery, I had no idea there was a need for pelvic therapy. I was apprehensive, but Buffy was awesome! She took time to explain the therapy help make me comfortable. She knew just when to move forward with each step. Buffy, my husband and I can’t thank you enough.”

    “If you are even remotely considering seeing a pelvic floor PT, look no further, just GO! Buffy is a leader in her field, passionate about the work, a consummate professional, and most importantly, she is incredibly empathic. I was nervous, emotional and very hesitant about my first visit, but Buffy put me at ease immediately, and throughout the appointment. She showed compassion, concern, and provided me hope when I felt pretty low about injuries I had suffered during child birth. She can help a woman at any stage in her life, and she is just truly incredible. I feel so confident in Buffy, that even though my insurance will cover me 100% somewhere else, I gladly pay out of pocket to see her because there is no one else I would trust as much as her to help me recover. You are in the best of hands to not only improve a specific condition, but to also improve your overall total health. Buffy is such an asset to women in our community! ”

    “Buffy is amazing! So knowledgeable, skilled, and understanding. She was able to find the missing puzzle piece in my rehab journey with diastasis recti and identify other medical issues that no other PT or doctor had. If you struggle with diastasis, pelvic floor issues, etc, please visit her!”
