For the past 6 years, Adriana specialized in connective tissue disorder and has been working with patients with Ehler-Danlos Syndrome/Hypermobility Syndrome.

As an active person herself, Adriana implements her “Mommy work outs”  with most pf her patients, "Kegels are boring and people eventually stop doing them. I developed an exercise routine that is fun and make you feel good and fit. Pelvic floor muscle should automatically engage with abdominals muscles with all activities."

During physical therapy sessions patient will learn about muscles recruitment and re-education among other things. The main objective is to help patients regain control over they bladder, bowel and musculoskeletal deficits.

Potter PT is privately owned clinic by Adriana Potter (owner and therapist). She has been a doctor in physical therapist for over 16 years in general orthopedic issues, pelvic floor issues for women and men  and connective tissue disorder.

Her main goal is to keep patients fully engaged during the sessions while learning how to manage and balance their life style and their home exercise program .
