Hi everyone! If you haven't read my About Me section, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Alexia Garcia and I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy with a specialty in Obstetrics and the female pelvic floor. Nothing makes me happier than helping moms. It really does light up my day when I am able to help a pregnant momma get rid of her back pain or assist a postpartum momma get back to running.
What gets me fired up? Knowing that currently in our society, moms have NO WHERE TO GO when they are experiencing aches, pains, incontinence, you name it. When they try telling this to their medical providers, many shrug and say that "its normal" during pregnancy or its just part of being postpartum. I am here to challenge that by saying that there is a difference between COMMON and NORMAL. The fact that I successfully help moms with their pain and pelvic floor issues means that it shouldn't be something you just live with. This is why I love what I do!
I'll be posting frequent blog posts so if you are interested in learning more about all things Women's Health, Pregnancy and Postpartum Physical Therapy, Pelvic Floor Therapy, or getting strong after baby, following along in my journey to change the way pregnancy and postpartum issues are addressed, and to simply learn more about me don't forget to drop in every once in a while!
