Chapel Hill, NC (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
Remy Coeytaux, MD, PhD, founder of Chapel Hill Doctors Healthcare Center in Chapel Hill, NC today announced that Dr. Erika Grace, DPT, MPH, MSW, founder of Grace Pelvic Health, Healing and Wellness, has joined the Center’s community of professional healthcare providers. Grace Pelvic Health, Healing and Wellness is now accepting new patients seeking treatment for such conditions as Female/Male Urinary Incontinence, Pelvic Pain, Painful Intercourse, Prenatal and Postpartum Pain, Constipation and Bowel Issues, Pre- and Post-Operative Pelvic Surgery Rehabilitation, and SI Joint and Tailbone Pain.
“Statistics show that 33% of women experience pelvic dysfunction during their lifetime,” says Dr. Coeytaux, “and many women are not aware of the numerous physical therapy treatments that can significantly improve challenging pelvic conditions. Many men also experience urinary incontinence and other pelvic complaints." Coeytaux goes on to say, “Dr. Erika Grace, with her background, experience, and compassionate bedside manner offers an excellent service to the community, and I am pleased to have her practice at the Center.”
Dr. Grace received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Duke University School of Medicine, and completed sub-specialty training at Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute. She also holds a Bachelor’s degree from Emory University and dual degrees of Master of Science of Public Health (Maternal and Child Health) and Master of Social Work from the University of North Carolina.
Dr. Grace is extensively involved with the American Physical Therapy Association, the APTA Section on Women’s Health, and the North Carolina Physical Therapy Association. She is passionate about women’s health and wellness and is involved in reproductive health and human rights initiatives, both locally and globally.
“One out of every 5 Americans suffers from the pain of musculoskeletal or neuromuscular conditions of the pelvic floor. That translates to millions of Americans suffering from some type of pelvic floor dysfunction, and for many it goes untreated,” says Dr. Grace. “More than 25 million Americans experience involuntary loss of urine and often believe that it is just a part of aging they have to accept, but that really isn’t true. There are effective treatments for these conditions that can significantly improve quality of life.”

Dr. Grace is an in-network provider with BCBS, Coventry (Wellpath, Duke Basic and Select) and Medicare. For patients who have other insurance plans, our office will file on your behalf.
