Dr. Ginger Garner
Dr. Ginger Garner PT, DPT, ATC/L

Dr. Garner is a veteran therapist, the founder of GPH and Living Well Institute, and an active clinician. She is a leading educator worldwide and has trained thousands of clinicians in best care using Functional, Integrative, and Lifestyle Medicine (FILM) in physical therapy. She literally wrote the book on these topics, as the author of three books, multiple book chapters, and articles.

She is known as “a therapist’s therapist,” and is regularly invited to teach, having spoken at over 2 dozen international conferences on a range of topics related to her specialty. Moving toward her 3rd decade in practice, Dr. Garner is known for addressing complex issues like:

  1. Voice issues driven by Pelvic Floor Problems and vice-versa, and those complicated by Faulty Breathing and Orofacial and Neck Restrictions
  2. Hip Pain, especially from Arthroscopy, Impingement &/or Labral Tears and pain complicated by Sacroiliac Joint and Low Back Pain
  3. Complex Pelvic Pain issues – especially Endometriosis, Interstitial Cystitis, & Postpartum
  4. Prolapse Management & Advanced Stress Urinary Incontinence

Dr. Garner is an educator at heart, and has spent over 20 years teaching continuing education and mentoring physical therapists and related practitioners in Functional, Integrative, & Lifestyle Medicine, Medical Therapeutic Yoga, Therapeutic Pilates, Dry Needling, Integrative Care for Hip & Back Pain, and Lumbopelvic Rehabilitation Ultrasound Imaging.

Her clinic is one of the few US physical therapy practices to offer specialized integrative care in combination with in-office Rehab Ultrasound Imaging, pelvic floor dry needling, and pessary fitting. All of these things work together to remove guesswork, shorten treatment time, and provide the most prescriptive physical therapy available.

Dr. Garner takes a unique approach to addressing pelvic pain, because she considers all systems, labs, and lifestyle factors which could contribute. Likewise, her ability to successfully treat complex post hip arthroscopy cases is well known, because she is a pelvic floor specialist and spinal manual therapist.

As a result, many people come to Dr. Garner specifically for her expertise, especially for complex pelvic pain and hip labral injury and impingement cases.

Booking Your Intensive Treatment

  1. Step One – Dr. Garner will provide an initial free 10 minute phone consult before booking your first teleconsult. This call is to help her decide if taking your case is a good fit for your best care. Book your call here. This call is not mandatory, it’s only if you are not sure how Dr. Garner can help you.

  2. Step TwoBook your Teleconsult – You will choose Discovery TeleConsult under the Initial Consult option. This allows you to speak with Dr. Garner and compile a problems list, as well as determine how many visits, what labs or paperwork, medical records, and/or what type of treatment will be needed once you arrive at GPH in order to start treatment. If you cannot find a time that works, email our office directly. This consult is required.

  3. Step ThreeBook your Treatment Intensive – You will be able to book this with Dr. Garner during your Discovery TeleConsult. Intensive Treatments take place on Wednesday-Friday and require an in-person visit over a 2 day period (or longer if it’s necessary) to her North Carolina practice. Because Dr. Garner clears her schedule for these appointments, her schedule fills quickly and there is a wait list.

To save even more time, go ahead and collect all records, labs, images, and any other documents you believe will help Dr. Garner with your case. Your case management will include both In-Person and Remote Monitoring, which will include access to Direct Messaging with Dr. Garner, an interactive real-time Lifestyle Monitoring Program, and Record Review.
