Stacey Futterman Tauriello

My History

While watching a popular reality show, Stacey Futterman was gratified to see pelvic floor dysfunction receive celebrity airtime. Her excitement quickly turned to disappointment, when the treatment prescribed fell short of the mark. “Kegel exercises only get you so far,” says Stacey. Luckily the experienced and energetic pelvic floor specialist has been making a difference on her own—one patient or lecture at a time.

Once a more generalized orthopedic physical therapist, Stacey was offered the chance to be trained in pelvic floor dysfunction in the late 1990s. “I was fascinated by it. This was an aspect to physical therapy that hadn’t been taught in school,” she recalls.

While working in Chicago, Stacey became a sports medicine physical therapist—with a specialty in pelvic health and wellness. She built her practice, taking courses in manual orthopedic physical therapy, while taking specialty courses in incontinence, pelvic pain, pre-natal and postpartum musculoskeletal issues, male pelvic conditions, colorectal conditions, and pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse (a surprisingly common complaint). In 2004, she moved back to the east coast, and began to practice in New York City.

In 2011, Stacey founded 5 Point Physical Therapy PLLC to treat pelvic floor issues and all musculoskeletal issues. Stacey also teaches practitioners across the country about one of America’s most significant healthcare concerns. She is a faculty member at the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehab Institute, which provides comprehensive continuing education for the rehabilitation of pelvic floor and pelvic girdle dysfunction. Equal parts direct and compassionate, Stacey is an ideal advocate.

She has been featured on CBS New York, and in various national conferences listed below.

I came to see Stacey Futterman in the most vulnerable state of my life. Two years ago I came to her with vaginal pain and burning. I had gone to countless doctors who were not able to give me an explanation or treatment plan for this mystery pain I was experiencing. Stacey quickly uncovered an underlying hip problem that I had and from there got me in touch with the proper doctors and set me on the right path. I immediately felt comfortable with her – not only because of her level of professionalism and knowledge but because of her ability to truly empathize. I finally had found someone who understood my pain and made me feel like I was not alone and there was hope. Stacey has extensive experience and I immediately put my trust in her expertise. I found and continue to find great relief from her work. She is very gentle and truly cares about her patients getting results. Her positive attitude is truly inspiring and something I know has truly helped me along the way. I highly recommend Stacey and 5point PT and am thankful to have them!

Having had a total hysterectomy at age 39 after a diagnosis of stage three ovarian cancer almost 18 years ago, sex had often been painful and difficult. And then I met Stacey Futterman whose knowledge, experience, professionalism and compassionate personality helped me reclaim that part of my life. Breaking through scar tissue, increasing blood circulation and recommending changes to the type of estrogen I had been using made a huge difference, and even impressed my world renowned gynecological oncologist who now refers patients to her practice! I can’t recommend her highly enough as she is proof that is never too late to be hopeful, and to get help for a long standing problem.

Quite honestly, Stacey changed my life. Not only did she give me the phenomenal care, answers I could not find elsewhere, and hope that some day I would live pain free, but she also treated me with patience and kindness unmatched by any other physical therapist I have encountered. Stacey really listens and works with her patients to problem solve even the seemingly impossible. I had chronic vaginal pain for two years before I started physical therapy with Stacey…I can now say that I am virtually pain free. Stacey has given me my life back.
