Cassie hippensteel

Physical therapist: specializes in pelvic floor

Cassie earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from CSU Long Beach and completed her Bachelor’s degree at the University of Wyoming in Kinesiology and Health Promotion. Cassie’s physical therapy career started with a passion for helping athletes reach their goals using in-depth knowledge of the needs for high-level athletes, having over 10 years of experience in advanced level soccer including a collegiate career at UW. Cassie noticed the gap between early postpartum care and fully returning to prior function including running and weight lifting after having her own children. This developed into a passion for helping other women recover fully after pregnancy. Cassie pursued a certification specializing in Women’s Health and Pelvic Rehab to further enable her to assist women in their recoveries. 


Cassie incorporates a “whole body” approach when assessing the needs of each patient. Cassie’s approach to recovery is a dynamic balance of hands-on therapy, activity specific exercise and patient education. Cassie uses current research, clinical expertise and patient input to make individualized plans for her clients, in order to optimize movement, performance and overall life experience.


When Cassie is not in the clinic, she enjoys working out, running, hiking and spending time with her husband, their 2 kids and dog.
