Meet our Pelvic Floor Specialist and learn about Trailhead's passion for providing Pelvic Health Physical Therapy in Albuquerque 

Dr. Sunel Vanderwalt, PT, DPT

Hi there! Welcome to Trailhead Pelvic & Visceral Physical Therapy. We are here to assist you on your journey towards better health. Your pelvic floor specialist, Sunel, is friendly and easy to get along with. She reports that she enjoys deciphering challenging pelvic floor or orthopedic problems. She also has a slight accent, which you may notice more on Fridays.


We invite you to come and see us if you are feeling frustrated, lost, or uncertain about the impact of any problem you may be facing. Our clinic offers a safe and confidential environment. We specialize in handling complex and potentially sensitive topics, so you can rest assured that you will be in good hands.


Her years of experience working with clients in various settings and her extensive coursework in pelvic health PT have given her the tools to provide comprehensive, multidimensional treatments for pelvic health issues. She understands pelvic health problems can be multifactorial and require a unique approach, which she will tailor to you.


She has worked with individuals of all ages in various healthcare settings and was part of the team responsible for treating athletes during the 1995 Rugby World Cup. With broad experience working with kids, she completed her transitional doctorate in physical therapy, with a focus on pediatrics.

She is excited to meet you and looks forward to starting this journey together.

The Trailhead Pelvic & Visceral Physical Therapy Story

Trailhead is the point at which the trail begins.

The place to be to make your pelvic floor right again. 

Delicate arch in Moab, UT

"May your choices reflect your hopes,not your fears."Nelson Mandela

Dr. Sunel established Trailhead Pelvic & Visceral Physical Therapy to support adults and children experiencing orthopedic and pelvic health issues. She has a particular interest in men's health physical therapy and bowel/GI dysfunction, as her father suffered for years in silence from a bowel disorder before seeking help. She understands the embarrassment and anxiety that accompanies pelvic/bowel disorders.


She aims to provide a safe and nurturing environment where you can receive high-quality, one-on-one, non-rushed pelvic health physical therapy for a possible challenging condition. Her primary aim is to help you regain control over your life and engage in the activities you enjoy without being hindered by your issues.


We invite you to choose Trailhead Pelvic & Visceral Physical Therapy for your pelvic PT care in Albuquerque. Our therapy home is open to all genders!
