Dr. Allison Matos, PT, DPT, OCS, COMT, CYT-200
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, stay active during pregnancy and prepare their bodies for birth, and to safely return to exercise and full activity over the postpartum period. She also specializes in working with female athletes and women experiencing pelvic pain.
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 received the Elam Plowman award for excellence in musculoskeletal physical therapy in 2014, is a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist and 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 every woman who is pregnant or postpartum to have their pelvic floor function checked to decrease risk of developing 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.
Allison sees patients at the Thrive Mama Collective on Tuesdays and also offers a limited number of at home sessions for patients. Appointments can be scheduled by calling (405) 256-2995, emailing email@example.com or through her website.
