Dr. Bingham is an advocate of endometriosis. Her journey with symptoms began at age 17 yrs. Unlike a large portion of persons with endometriosis, she did not experience regularly painful and heavy menses. While her symptoms generally occurred around the menstrual cycle, Her symptoms were always associated with the intestinal tract, urinary and respiratory systems. Fast forward nearly 30 years without a diagnosis. Following a history of recurrent lung collapses, multiple misdiagnoses, and dismissal of her concerns, a rapid decline in health led her to the Center for Endometriosis Care in Atlanta, Georgia in 2016. Her own struggle for diagnosis, recognition of the many barriers to diagnosis and treatment for ‘atypical’ endometriosis, in 2018 Dr. Bingham established ‘Extrapelvic Not Rare’, a 501c 3 charity organization to promote awareness, education and facilitate research into and recognition of presentations of endometriosis that lies outside the female reproductive system and local areas. In addition to an established website for information, she is dedicated to the development of projects and partnering with educational and medical institutes, professional organizations, other non-profits, and government agencies to improve awareness and ability to identify presentations suspicious for extrapelvic endometriosis by healthcare professionals and bridge the gap between medicine and the patient experience. She has a Bachelor of Science from Oregon State University, a Master’s of Physical Therapy from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, and a transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy from Temple University. Her clinical experience includes in/outpatient rehab settings treating neurological disorders: Traumatic Brain Injury, Stroke, Brain Tumour, Spinal Cord, Neurodegenerative conditions to include Multiple Sclerosis and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS; Lou Gehrig’s Disease) and lesser know conditions). She has also spent time as an in/outpatient clinician for orthopedic conditions. While she loves every niche of physical therapy, her passion is treating persons with complex balance and vestibular (inner ear) conditions that are primary or a consequence of other conditions.
