Julia Salazar, DPT
Julia received her undergraduate degree in Biology form the University of Great Falls Montana and went on to receive her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Eastern Washington University. Julia worked for several years in Outpatient Orthopedics before finding a clinic in California where she was able to focus on Pelvic Floor Therapy. It was here that Julia found a passion for working with pelvic floor dysfunction. Julia spent the next 2.5 years focusing on pelvic floor dysfunction and treatment. Julia recently returned to the Spokane area and is excited to be joining APEX again. Julia is working with APEX to open a clinic specializing in pelvic floor therapy, as this is an area that she feels is underserved.
Julia’s goal is to give you back your freedom so you can focus on doing the things you love. She does this by reducing or eliminating pain, improving quality of life, promoting dryness, relieving constipation, and getting you back to an enjoyable sex life. With more than five years of experience, Julia uses the most current techniques, methods, and modern equipment to help you recover from any pelvis injury or pain. Julia is very passionate about her job and tailors her treatments to address each client's individual needs.
Julia has completed all three Pelvic Floor courses through the American Physical Therapy Association focusing on men, women, and children. The courses covered many topics including incontinence, constipation, pelvic pain, vaginismus, vulvodynia, pelvic floor dysfunction and much more. Other courses include topics such as treatments for the pediatric population, endometriosis, infertility, hysterectomy, lymph drainage for the pelvis, and myofascial mobilization for the pelvis.
Julia was born and raised in Montana and moved to Spokane in 2006 to attend physical therapy school at Eastern Washington University. She remained in Spokane until 2011 when she relocated to Sacramento CA with her husband. They returned to Spokane in 2016 with their 3 boys, 2 cats, and 2 dogs. They love the Spokane area and Julia is excited to be providing pelvic floor physical therapy to a community she loves.
