Ask a Physical Therapist | Endometriosis

Dr. Tanice Kitchener, PT, DPT interviews Personal Trainer Caitlin Kinney, who also runs the Blood Flow Restriction training program at RMTP in Carbondale. Endometriosis is a women’s disease which impacts one in ten women in our world today. The disease entails endometrial-like tissue growing outside of the uterus into places it does not belong such as the abdominal cavity, stomach, organs and in some rare cases, the diaphragm or brain. It can cause pelvic pain, infertility and frustration. Caitlin has first hand experienced many of the frustrating, painful by-products of Endometriosis including: Chronic pelvic and back pain, anxiety/depression, sciatica, painful periods, hormone imbalances and more. Dr. Kitchener and Caitlin dive deeper into what endo is, how to get support and find a skilled surgeon in order to remove the tissue and achieve relief.

Born and raised in Colorado, I have a passion for travel and being outdoors. Biking, skiing, snowboarding, waterskiing, sledding, hiking...anything outdoors brings me peace. I am so grateful to be in a career which allows me to help others maximize their physical abilities so that they may also enjoy the calling of nature or whatever their own passions may be. As a child, I grew up spending summer weekends on the Frying Pan River at my Great Grandparents' cabin and am thrilled to be back in the Roaring Fork Valley.
