Dr. Angie Mueller
Dr. Angie is the founder of Core Recovery. She holds a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Regis University and a Bachelor's in Health and Exercise Science with a concentration in Sports Medicine from Colorado State University. She specializes in women’s and men’s pelvic health, core rehabilitation, sports medicine, and prenatal /postpartum training. Angie is enthusiastic and passionate with a focused approach to high-quality care that emphasizes proven techniques to address the deficits that lead to the onset of pain and dysfunction. She is a Master Trainer in an innovative postural and breath training system known as Low Pressure Fitness®. She educates and trains other health care and fitness professionals on this revolutionary form of core training and the importance of pelvic health. She also participates as an investigator in ongoing clinical research and presents at local and national venues. While spreading the gospel of pelvic health, Angie also enjoys hiking, yoga, skiing, sailing, scuba diving and traveling. She is passionate about educating, inspiring, and empowering people everywhere to reconnect with their CORE.
In addition to her clinical practice, Angie is also teaching for a globally expanding continuing education company called Low Pressure Fitness®. As a Coach and brand ambassador, she provides workshops and certification courses on Hypopressive Training, which is a revolutionary methodology that uses breath and posture to lift and detoxify the internal organs, reduce the pressure in the abdomen, and strengthen the deep core muscles. Angie is passionate about educating healthcare and fitness professionals on the best and safest way to strengthen the core, especially in populations with pelvic dysfunction.
Before starting Core Recovery, Angie created a women's health program in the Urogynecology department at Kaiser Permanente- Denver. Her primary focus at Kaiser was pelvic organ prolapse, urinary and fecal incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and pelvic pain. Angie's work is part of a pilot study on the effects of trigger point dry needling in treating pelvic floor dysfunction, which will be published soon. This was a wonderful and valuable experience for her. In her work at Kaiser, Angie was able to help women of all ages achieve optimal pelvic health through use of manual therapy, neuromuscular education, individualized exercise prescription and dietary/behavioral education.
Angie also enjoys her time in pediatric home health treating a variety of developmental, neurological and behavioral disorders in children who are in foster care. Prior to discovering her love of working with children, she worked with adults treating complex neurologic, cardiovascular, endocrine and pulmonary disorders, as well as various post operative conditions. Angie's work at several top rated agencies allowed her to provide therapy to restore functional mobility for patients to live safely and independently at home, reduce re-hospitalizations and enable a true continuum of care.
Angie developed her real passion for treating women's health issues and pelvic dysfunction while she served as a clinical director of Providence Physical Therapy, a private practice which specializes in women’s health, pelvic floor rehab, spine care, chronic pain and orthopedics. Here, Angie lead clinic development plans to extend the populations reached and gained invaluable mentorship.
