Chelse Speegle is a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) who specializes in pelvic health. She works primarily at Activcore in Littleton, Colorado which is located inside the Womens Health Care Associates OBGYN clinic.
Chelsea decided to become a physical therapist in high school after sustaining and rehabilitating an ACL, medial meniscus, and MCL reconstruction surgery following a wakeboarding accident. She developed osteomyelitis which was identified by her physical therapist. This experience inspired her to become a healthcare professional.
Chelsea graduated from Loma Linda University in Southern California to receive her Doctorate in Physical Therapy. She initially began her career working in orthopedics with an emphasis on hip pathology and dysfunction. She began noticing the connection of musculoskeletal dysfunctions, specifically the hip and spine in relation to the pelvic floor. So she decided to pursue advanced training in pelvic health. She has taken the pelvic floor series continuing education from Herman and Wallace, including pelvic rehabilitation in athletes and pelvic capstones. She has also received the Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist certification from Corrective Exercise Solutions. Additionally, she has been certified in levels 1 and 2 through Evidence in Motion (EIM) and pelvic floor dry needling through Professional Pelvic Health Consultants (PPHC).
Chelsea believes in treating the whole body as it relates to the client’s personal goals. She begins with a local approach and progresses globally for an individualized treatment to the client and the related dysfunction. She enjoys working with the pregnancy and postpartum populations as well as other pelvic floor dysfunctions.
In her free time, she enjoys long distance running, snowboarding and snow skiing, water sports, playing the piano, and of course spending time with her husband, son, and dog.
Words cannot express how thankful I am to have found Dr. Chelsea Speegle! After suffering a 4th degree tear during delivery, I was struggling with lots of pelvic pain, strength issues and urgency. Chelsea has been absolutely incredible to work with! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for pelvic therapy for prenatal and/or postpartum care! She immediately made me feel comfortable and was patient as I walked her through my delivery journey. I have been blown away by her professionalism, knowledge and care! With her help, I have made huge strides towards my "old self" and have the strength to get back to my favorite activities. My postpartum journey was challenging both emotionally and physically and I feel beyond thankful to have had Chelsea's support through it all.
I was so nervous to try pelvic floor therapy after the birth of my daughter but after months of simply hoping things would just go back to normal I got in touch with Dr. Chelsea Speegle. Chelsea immediately made me feel at ease and explained every treatment thoroughly to make sure I was comfortable. She treated me as a whole person and would even step in to work with other ailments that popped up as I got back to my active lifestyle. Along the way, Chelsea became a friend and confidant. Chelsea single handedly put the broken pieces of my body back together and got me back to running. I would recommend her to anyone!
I saw Dr. Chelsea Speegle for treatment of my SI joint and sacrum pain during my pregnancy. I was barely able to walk into our first appointment. I was in so much pain. She gave me a comprehensive assessment and helped me understand my body and why I was feeling pain. We did 6 back to back weekly sessions of dry needling, deep tissue work and core exercises, then she would give me exercises to work on at home. My pain is now down to zero and I now have the body awareness/knowledge and the exercises to keep it that way. I would highly recommend Chelsea to anyone with back/hip/pelvic floor pain, especially if you are pregnant. Will definitely come back postpartum.
