Deana Wallace, DPT
Deana received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Chemistry from St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa. While attending St. Ambrose was named to the All-American team for volleyball and competed overseas representing Team USA. She then earned her Doctoral Degree in Physical Therapy from Midwestern University in 2008.
Deana has been a practicing physical therapist in orthopedics and women’s health conditions for over 15 years. During her orthopedic clinical experience, she recognized a largely underserved population in pelvic health – specifically in peripartum and postpartum individuals. Deana believes postpartum individuals are nothing short of performance athletes and deserve to be treated as such!
Deana emphasizes that for some, pelvic health can be difficult to talk about, share with others, and/or seek treatment for. She prides herself on prioritizing the comfort and needs of her client, and aims to foster a space for everyone to come as they are, without judgment, to ensure that all questions are answered and every goal is addressed. She loves to work with all orthopedic injuries as well as all the pelvic-related things: incontinence, pain with sexual activity, pre/postpartum care, constipation, pelvic tension – you name it. Whether you're trying to improve your bladder control, return to exercise after baby, or jumpstart your core and pelvic floor fitness plan, her aim is to help you reach your health goals and in turn improve your quality of life, all through the convenience of your own home.
Deana lives in Chicago with her husband, two children and super lovable Goldendoodle. When she is not in a freezing hockey rink with her two travel hockey players, she enjoys reading, concerts, and spending time with friends & family!
