Amanda Fisher, DPT
Hey there, I’m Amanda Fisher, Owner and Doctor of Physical Therapy at Empower Your Pelvis.
Most days you can find me in the morning at the gym with a water in one hand and coffee in the other, followed by taking my boys to school and then at the clinic with my favorite, pelvic patients. I am wife to my hunky, husband Brett, and a mother to my wild-n-crazy three boys (yes, my hands are full!). I am mostly known for my passion for pelvic floor dysfunction and teaching women how to find vaginal healthy products at Target (yes I have a video on YouTube on this). People often refer to me as “The Crazy Pelvic Lady”, “The Vagina Doctor” or“The Vagina Whisperer”.
I love serving the world by helping women realize there is hope with pelvic floor issues like peeing your pants, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain and pain with intercourse.
The things I am most passionate about in life are my family, spending time with my husband and kids, pelvic health, health and fitness, 90s/2000s hip hop, baking cookies, gardening herbs, bike riding, personal growth journeys and mojitos. I work with people who are having pelvic floor dysfunction symptoms: leaking urine/ feces, pelvic organ prolapse, low back pain, hip pain, pelvic pain, lower abdominal pain, pelvic pain with intercourse/ speculum exam or inserting a tampon.
I am a true believer that life happens for us, not to us. In 2008, I started leaking urine while training for half marathons. Then in 2009 I developed pelvic pain which lead me down this wonderful path of pelvic health. I have been scared and ashamed of my symptoms and learned how to overcome them. Then in 2013, 2015 and 2017, after the births of each of my children, I had pelvic organ prolapse. I began feeling pressure in my vaginal canal with prolonged standing or right before I had a bowel movement. I worked really hard to improve my pelvic floor muscle strength and coordination to continue to work out and stay healthy for myself and my family. After many different paths of pelvic floor dysfunction, I feel I can relate to my patients and love being their accountability partner. I am lucky to give my patients tools to improve their pelvic health so they can improve their health, fitness and sometimes, even their marriage/ relationship.
I was voted as the Top Physical Therapy Clinic in Eastern Jackson County in 2018 by The Examiner.
When I’m not busy working at the office, you can catch me working out at Burn Boot Camp, sipping a almond milk latte with cinnamon at the local coffee shop, reading the newest book by Rachel Hollis, exploring the outdoors with my boys, trying out a local brewery with my husband, bike riding around the lake, enjoying a mojito with my girlfriends, making pancakes in my kitchen or jamming out to 90s/2000s hip hop. My 3 boys are totally into homemade pizza, game nights and dance parties in the kitchen. These are some of my most favorite memories! I want to grow into the best mother I can be to my boys!
If you’re dying to hear more, here are five things you might not know about me.
1. I grew up in a small town north of Saint Louis.
2. I am a lover of cheesecake and mashed potatoes but haven’t eaten either of them in over a year!
3. The first day I went back to the gym after my third baby (third cesarean birth), I was 7.5 months postpartum and face-planted 5+ times while trying to do a “girlie” push-up.
4. I was not blessed with a “singing voice” or rhythm, however, that does not stop me from busting a move or singing a tune, daily.
5. I have a deep, deep love for guacamole.
