Heather Evans, PT, DPT
Heather graduated from the University of Kansas in 2003 with a bachelor’s of science in sports science. Following graduation, she attended the University of Kansas Medical Center where she graduated in 2005 with a master’s in physical therapy and later in 2013 with a doctorate of physical therapy. Heather joined the team at Summit Rehab in 2007.
Since 2009, Heather has specialized in pelvic floor physical therapy, treating both men and women. Specialties treated include urinary and fecal incontinence, urinary urgency, urinary frequency, constipation, pelvic pain, dyspareunia, abdominal pain, pain with pregnancy, postpartum care, vulvodynia, prostatitis, endometriosis, vaginismus, and interstitial cystitis. She has attended courses through both the APTA Section on Women’s Health (completion of full series, levels 1 through 3, as well as pediatric pelvic floor) and Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute (bowel dysfunction, pregnancy/post-partum).
Heather works part-time, treating primarily pelvic floor patients, but also assisting in orthopedics and pulmonary rehab. Heather lives in Lee’s Summit with her husband and boy/girl twins. She enjoys spending time with her family, running, triathlons, and cheering on the Jayhawks. She published a book in 2017 available on Amazon entitled “Learning to Breathe” which tells the story of her twins’ journey after being born at 24 weeks gestation.
