About Chrysalis Physical Therapy

About Megan

Megan Kranenburg holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Civil Engineering from The University of Portland, a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Eastern Washington University, and is the only nationally board-certified Clinical Specialist in Women’s Health (Pelvic Health) Physical Therapy serving the greater Kitsap region. She is a proud veteran of the United States Air Force, serving as an engineering officer stateside, overseas and in the combat theater. Her military and engineering background have proven to be fantastic building blocks for the kind of problem-solving inherent to the field of Physical Therapy.

In her spare time, she can be found reading, bingeing British shows on TV, trying to stay active, gardening, knitting, and hanging out with her husband and their two rad kids. Once upon a time she and her husband started a brewery, too — they don’t own it anymore, but still think it’s a great place. Check out Crane’s Castle Brewing in East Bremerton!

In addition to her Physical Therapy practice, Megan spent five years as active Doula and is doing her part to improve perinatal care by teaching “Labor Skills” workshops for expecting couples and providing in-home PT consults to postpartum people within the first two weeks after delivery (this is also the subject of her upcoming research project, which you can read about here). She recently served as adjunct faculty to her alma mater’s Physical Therapy program, teaching a summer elective on Pelvic Health PT.

My Approach

There are as many approaches to the field of Physical Therapy as there are PTs. I like to think of Physical Therapists as the “MacGyvers of Healthcare.” Since I don’t have imaging or medications in my toolbox, I have to work harder to look at low-tech ways that bodies (and hearts and minds) can experience change. Ultimately, the benefit to the client is that these interventions are cheap, easy to replicate at home, and usually promote wellness in many other facets of life at the same time.

I like to say that Pelvic Health PT is “nose to toes” because the pelvis sits right in the middle of the body and everything up and down the chain can impact what’s happening. In addition to assessing the structure of a client’s body, It’s as important (usually more) for me to assess their breathing mechanics, balance, internal organ mobility… and hear their stories and how they’re coping with this condition and life in general.

  • As a first time parent to be, going into labor felt completely unpredictable and that there was really no level of planning i could to fully prepare my self for what was to come... Throughout the pregnancy, labor and delivery, Megan was so attentive to my goals and was able to create such a trusting and positive environment that I was able to progress through the process and reach the outcome that I had envisioned. In addition to supporting me, she incorporated and supported my husband through the process. I look back on the experience as one of if not the most profound for my self and family, and accredit much [of] it [to] Megan!

  • Megan is amazing! Not only did she perform a miracle in my opinion, her very nature is extremely caring and nurturing. She worked with me for several weeks to resolve my issue providing options toward a solution that met my needs. I highly recommend Megan for any PT need.

  • Megan is a straight-up wizardess. Gentle, thoughtful, skilled, intuitive...I came out of there bouncing on air... If you are or have grown a baby, birthed a baby, or feel less than ideal in your pelvic area for any reason... you MUST go see her...
    Healing professions are not just about didactic training, the best providers also have a gift, intuition and maybe even a little magic...Megan has all of that in spades. I can't remember the last time I felt this comfortable in my body. A million thanks to Chrysalis and Megan.
