Allison Matos , DPT, OCS, COMPT, CYT-200Body Smart Physio
Dr. Allison Matos is a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and owner of Body Smart Physio, a specialty mobile practice focused on helping women overcome injury and achieve wellness at any stage in life. Her practice includes guiding women during pregnancy who want to stay active, prepare their pelvis for birth, and confidently return to exercise and sexual activity during the postpartum period. She also specializes in working with female athletes experiencing urinary leakage, pelvic pain and prolapse symptoms. Her practice is a hybrid of orthopedic and pelvic health treatment to provide a more holistic approach to rehabilitation for active women. She founded Body Smart Physio with the intent of making the highest quality one-on-one pelvic and orthopedic care accessible to people who want to recover more quickly in their natural environment. Allison attended the University of Oklahoma for her Doctoral program in physical therapy and is certified in Orthopedic Manual therapy (hands on treatment) through extensive training with Evidence in Motion. She became a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist in 2016 and is a 200 hr certified yoga teacher. Allison has specialized training in pelvic floor rehabilitation and is passionate about helping women continue to exercise safely during pregnancy as well as fully recover (and become even stronger!) postpartum. Her interest in women’s health began following her two pregnancies when she discovered how little she felt in control of her body with returning to exercise. She strongly believes quality pelvic health treatment can be life changing for women, and that it should be the norm for pregnant and postpartum women to have their pelvic floor function checked to help prevent pelvic issues over the lifespan. Her treatment sessions start with thoroughly discussing clients preferences and concerns, treatment options and setting personalized goals. Sessions include hands on treatment and corrective exercises to guide healing. Some treatment options which are tailored to clients needs include joint mobilization, spinal manipulation and trigger point dry needling to optimize whole body movement and eliminate pain. Common issues she treats include: spinal, pelvic and hip pain, neck pain, urinary leakage and/or urgency, sexual dysfunction, diastasis recti and pelvic organ prolapse.
