Cara Konlian MSPT opened Aquacare Physical Therapy in December, 1997.  Under her leadership,  Aquacare Physical Therapy has grown to 10 sites throughout the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Delaware.   Her mission has been to add  women’s health services/pelvic floor therapy  at all locations of Aquacare Physical Therapy.   Aquacare Physical Therapy currently has employed nine pelvic floor therapists, serving the  Eastern Shore as one of the few practices offering dedicated women’s health therapists.

Mrs. Konlian’s specialty  includes both Women’s Health and Aquatic Therapy.  In regards to Aquatic Therapy, Cara has lectured nationally with various organizations including the Aquatic Therapy  & Rehab Institute.  In addition, she has consulted with physical therapy practices throughout New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts in the construction of an aquatic site and the implementation/marketing of aquatic therapy services.   Over the last 25 years, Cara  has trained as a manual women’s health  therapist  through   numerous courses offered  with the Women’s Health Section of the APTA and Herman and Wallace  Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.   She is currently working towards her Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner Certification (PRPC) with the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.

Cara’s Vision is to work to educate the community of the importance of pelvic health so that men and women do not experience the hopelessness that can come from suffering from incontinence or chronic  pelvic pain.
