Meet The Team
Brooke Kalisiak PT, DPT, WCS
Brooke Kalisiak PT, DPT, WCS, is Saint Louis’s leading physical therapist who helps women who are tired of leaking, dealing with pelvic pain, and wanting to get their body back in shape after baby (even if it’s been 30 years) all without relying on medications or surgery.
She founded Legacy Physical Therapy because she was frustrated with the way women with pelvic health issues were being treated in our healthcare system. Too many women are being told that their pelvic symptoms (ie bladder leakage, pelvic pain, pain with sex, etc) are normal or that there is nothing that they can do except take medication, have surgery, or just live with it. This is far from the truth. Many pelvic health issues are COMMON but NOT NORMAL. It is Brooke’s mission to help people make the best decisions about their pelvic health while creating a positive healing experience.
Brooke is a board certified women's health physical therapist. She has a Doctorate of Physical Therapy and a Master of Science in Physical Therapy from Washington University in Saint Louis.
Brooke has received several awards for her academic and volunteer activities:
She continues to have close ties with the faculty at Washington University’s Program in Physical Therapy, and enjoys helping the next generation of therapists learn the profession by lab assisting, and being a clinical educator.
Brooke is a mother, a scholar, and an athlete. She completed her undergraduate degree at Princeton University in New Jersey, where she played NCAA Division I basketball for four years. For fun she enjoys hiking, reading, Taekwondo, and traveling with her husband and son.
