Meet the Team
Rachelle Bojer, MSPT
Rachelle Bojer, MSPT, graduated from New York’s Mercy College in 2001 with a master of science in physical therapy and health science. Prior to founding Lotus Physical Therapy in 2012, Rachelle spent eight years as the director of physical therapy for Orthopaedic Associates of Manhasset, a large medical practice in Great Neck, New York.
Rachelle is passionate about women's health and wellness. She specializes in pelvic floor dysfunction issues, such as urge incontinence, urinary frequency and stress incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, chronic constipation, dyspareunia, interstitial cystitis, sexual dysfunction, and pelvic pain. These issues can result from childbirth, trauma, abdominal or pelvic surgeries, and hormonal changes. All sessions with her are private and held in strict confidentiality.
Rachelle’s experience and expertise in pregnancy-related issues propelled her to develop Core Connection, a program that helps women prevent and heal diastasis recti, a common issue in pregnancy where the outer layer of your abdominal muscles separate, leading to lower back pain, core weakness, pelvic floor dysfunction, and is sometimes referred to as the "mommy tummy." Diastasis recti causes the abdominal muscle to stretch out and create what is often called a “pooch.” This program is designed to help during the prenatal period before birth as well as afterward for postpartum women.
Rachelle is a board member of the Long Island Doula Association (LIDA) and a member of The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).
