Her particular interest in treating musculoskeletal causes of pelvic pain, pelvic girdle pain and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction is a unique perspective on conditions which are quite common yet often overlooked, misdiagnosed and under treated.

Dr. Bonder offers non-surgical treatment modalities to help improve patients’ symptoms and overall health.
Dr. Bonder’s expertise in women’s health also allows her to give care to pregnant and postpartum women who are suffering with such conditions as back pain, pelvic pain, incontinence or diastasis recti.
