Jake Bartholomy, PT, DPT
Director of Men's Health
Jake graduated with his Bachelors of Science in Exercise & Sport Science from Pennsylvania State University, where he competed in running. In 2000 Jake earned his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Slippery Rock University. His background in general orthopedics as well as sport sciences is strong, and Jake's clinical passion also includes pelvic rehabilitation.
Although there are few male rehabilitation professionals who specialize in treating male pelvic dysfunction, Jake has worked for years with men who have pelvic pain that may affect bowel, bladder, and sexual health. Pelvic pain can also interfere with work, relationships, fitness and leisure activity, which makes treating these conditions most rewarding. Many Seattle area providers rely on Jake to help men recover from prostate surgeries, urinary incontinence, or other challenges associated with the pelvis.
In addition to clinical work, Jake assists practice owner Holly Tanner in teaching the 3-day Male Pelvic Dysfunction course, which offers training to other health care providers about the issues in male pelvic pain, urinary and prostate disorders, and sexual health. Jake has also spent many years coaching high level athletes, and when he is not working or coaching, he enjoys training as well for running events.
