Dr. Becky Quintangeli, co-director of the Women’s Health Program, has her Doctorate in Physical Therapy as well as a Bachelors of Science in Athletic Training. Dr. Quintangeli grew up knowing she wanted to help others live the best life they could. After practicing as an Athletic Trainer for a few years she knew there was more she could offer and began her journey to become a Physical Therapist. Her extensive experience as an Athletic Trainer as well as her certifications in Pelvic Floor and Barefoot Training allows her to treat patients and clients with a whole-person approach in mind.
Dr. Quintangeli’s graduate research was conducted on the connection between the neck and vestibular system, which gives her another unique lens to look through. She loves to help patients with chronic pain, orthopedic injuries, pelvic floor pain/dysfunction, and inflammation. Using our matrix, she aims to assess the underlying causes of why patients may not feel their best.
When assessing and treating the pelvic floor, her integrative approach helps patients get back to what they love doing. She understands relaxing and strengthening muscles is only half the equation to treating the pelvic floor. Creating proper habits and/or mechanics coupled with training the core from the ground up allows for improved quality of life.
Dr. Quintangeli also contributes to professional journals and podcasts and provides excellent usable education on the Movement Paradigm Women’s Health Community on Facebook. Make sure to check it out!
While attending school, her mom was diagnosed with cancer and began treatment. Sadly, her mom lost her battle while she was still attending her doctoral program. After watching her mom fight for her life, Dr. Quintangeli recognized how precious life, movement, and well-being are. Therefore, she is dedicating her career to providing the highest quality care for her patients through mindset, nutrition, and movement. Dr. Quintangeli wants her patients to feel educated, empowered, and able to live their best life.

Elizabeth Schultz is a Doctoral of Physical Therapy student at Lebanon Valley College where she serves on the Board of Directors for the pro bono clinic. She received her Bachelor’s in Exercise Science at West Chester University in May of 2019.
Elizabeth’s mindset of “exercise is medicine” has led her to present related research at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Chapter for American College of Sports Medicine conference as well as presenting directly to The United States Congress in Washington DC. Elizabeth’s interest has allowed her to be an effective anatomy tutor, physical therapy aide, and resident assistant at West Chester University. In her last semester at West Chester she completed her internship at The Movement Paradigm where she instructed patients on their treatment plan and assisted Dr. Arianne Missimer on her presentations on mindset, movement, and nutrition. She hopes to use the knowledge she learned about holistic medicine and deepen it throughout her schooling and physical therapy career.
Her dream is to one day own her own private practice where she can assist patients in reaching their movement goals and educate them on the holistic approach to rehab, so they can continue to live their best lives. Liz helps the Movement Paradigm behind the scenes with marketing among many other things.
