Dr. Anne Buchwald completed her Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) from Columbia University with a focus on orthopedics, sports, and pelvic health. Anne's clinical experience includes sub-acute hospital rehabilitation, outpatient orthopedic practices, pelvic health clinics, and geriatric home care. Anne has been a Certified Pilates Instructor since 2010 and is able to integrate Pilates into her practice. Prior to earning her doctorate, Anne earned a Bachelor of Arts in Russian studies from Bard College, where she wrote an award-winning thesis on Post-Soviet Russian Architecture.
Anne is passionate about treating abdominal and pelvic disorders, back, neck and jaw pain, and post-partum pelvic rehabilitation. She is also interested in nutritional and complementary alternative therapies, musical and athletic performance optimization, and the use of rhythmic auditory cuing for accelerated motor learning and pain management in both neurological and non-neurological patients. She has taken courses for pelvic rehabilitation at the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.
Anne has many interests and hobbies, and her background fully reflects it. She attended architecture school abroad, was a professional drummer, and she speaks Russian and Swedish fluently. This variety of knowledge and range of experiences and skills inform her practice in unexpected and useful ways and allows her to relate to patients from all walks of life. In the clinic, Anne absolutely loves collaborating with her patients to solve problems and treat pain using evidence-based manual techniques and therapeutic exercises.
