755 Ela Road Lake Zurich IL


(February 5, 2018) Pelvic & Orthopedic Physical Therapy Specialists officially opened today at 755 Ela Road (at Rand Road) in Lake Zurich IL, at the former site of Women’s Physical Therapy Institute, a highly-respected local clinic.

The new owner, experienced physical therapist Dr. Maureen Gies Strasser, had been with the former clinic for one year before acquiring it from the owners, Lynn O’Brien and Teri Elliott-Burke.

“We are serving our men and women patients with the same high level of excellence and compassionate care, said Dr. Strasser.  “We have dedicated our practice to specialize in pelvic health and orthopedic therapy and our new name reflects that.  Our therapists are highly effective in treating a variety of related conditions throughout the body that can significantly restore healing and well-being.”

The newly-redesigned clinic offers one-hour appointments exclusively with experienced physical therapists, in comfortable, private rooms.

Currently, the clinic receives referrals from physicians at the Mayo Clinic, Loyola University Hospital, Rush Medical Center, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the University of Chicago Medical Center, Advocate hospitals, and several other medical practices area wide.

Dr. Maureen Gies Strasser, Owner, PT, DPT, OCS, CLT-LANA, has 17 years of experience treating patients with orthopedic and neurological diagnoses, as well as specialized training in the area of pelvic health for men and women. She earned her Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from Midwestern University in 2000 and her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Indianapolis in 2014.

In 2008, Dr. Strasser received board certification in the specialty area of orthopedics through the American Physical Therapy Association, and in 2014 she earned her certification from the Lymphology Association of North America (LANA) to diagnose and treat lymphedema and related disorders.

Currently, Dr. Strasser is an adjunct faculty member at Midwestern University’s Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program.  She is dedicated to advancing the education of current practitioners and has provided mentoring and formal education to doctoral students from schools around the country.  She also strongly believes in education to empower patients to understand their individual conditions and treatment plans that accelerate their recovery and well-being.

The clinic has three other experienced physical therapists who are trained and in pelvic health and orthopedic conditions:

Lynn Robinson, PT

Srivani Swaminathan, PT, MS, DPT
