SaraLynn Stocking, PT, DPT

Specialist in Pelvic Health


SaraLynn Stocking is a board-certified physical therapist at Galen Physical Therapy. She originally grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, but recently moved to Chattanooga. SaraLynn went to Auburn University for her undergraduate earning a degree in Exercise Science and a minor in International Studies. She then went to the University of Alabama at Birmingham and received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy.

SaraLynn decided to pursue physical therapy because of the time she gets to spend with patients as they journey through the healing process. SaraLynn is passionate about the mind-body connection as it relates to overall wellness. She enjoys educating patients about their bodies and how small changes can have a large impact on their function in day-to-day life. SaraLynn chose the pelvic floor as a specialty because she is passionate about women’s health. Her favorite population to treat is postpartum women because their bodies have gone through significant changes, and it is an honor to help them through the healing process.

SaraLynn’s ideal day off work includes starting the day with pilates, then brunch at a local restaurant, going on a walk with her husband and their dog Lincoln, and the rest of the day would be quiet at home, finishing the night with a movie and a home cooked meal. SaraLynn’s hobbies include exercising, trying out different bakeries/coffee shops, and spending time with friends and family. Her favorite thing about Chattanooga is the beautiful scenery and the proximity to her family.

Pelvic physical therapy combines conventional therapy with special techniques designed for the pelvic region to address improper muscle function and pain.  Our specially trained therapist uses innovative techniques to alleviate conditions such as:

  • Urinary or fecal incontinence – the loss of bladder or bowel control
  • Urinary retention – the inability to urinate
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pelvic organ prolapse – a condition in which organs, such as the uterus, shift or slip down and out of place
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Pelvic or back pain
  • Weak pelvic floor muscles
  • Poor posture
  • Pregnancy-related conditions


Pregnancy can lead to several conditions that affect the muscles in and around the pelvic area, as well as other regions of the body. Many of these pregnancy-related conditions can be managed through a program in pelvic physical therapy.

Our trained pelvic physical therapist treats the following common pregnancy-related conditions:

  • Abdominal or pelvic adhesions
  • Diastasis rectus abdominus
  • Pelvic or back pain
  • Poor posture
  • Pubic symphysis dysfunction
  • Weak pelvic floor or core muscles
