Alicia Roberts (formerly Alicia Willoughby)
As a Women’s Health & Orthopedic physical therapist, I assess your body as a whole to find the reasons for your discomforts and limitations and personalize my treatments based on your goals and my findings. I specialize in working with clients during pregnancy, postpartum and throughout all the years that follow. Our current medical system does not provide the type of comprehensive care that you deserve, and my mission is to provide that guidance and support so one can heal fully from pregnancy and birth.
Whether you are pregnant, postpartum or gave birth 20+ years ago, my services are here to support you in your goals. I am an advocate of you having the preparation for the birth that you want to have, the sex life that you desire and the type of active lifestyle you seek. You deserve to feel strong, confident, and capable in your incredible body. Let’s work together to make that a reality.

Would highly recommend Alicia! I saw her for sciatica pain prior to the birth of my first child; and then subsequently after my c-section. Alicia is experienced, patient and resourceful. After 6 weeks of treatment with her, I felt stronger overall, and headed back to the gym with more knowledge and body awareness. Alicia also provided tips on caring for the baby, how to nurse, ways to pick up the baby to avoid injuries etc.Have referred a number of my friends to see her for their postpartum rehabilitation. Thank you, Alicia!

Alicia helped me when my pelvic pain reappeared in my second pregnancy. I was experiencing sharp back pain and discomfort walking. Alicia discovered that my pelvis was out of alignment, made some adjustments, gave me some stability exercises and advice on how to adjust my exercise routine appropriately. After a few weeks the pelvic pain subsided and I’ve been able to continue to be active through the end of my pregnancy. Alicia is a great listener and has a genuine love and interest in her work with pregnant mamas. I highly recommend her!

I recently completed Alicia’s Ab Rehab Session. At 16 months postpartum, I was still having trouble connecting my core. Which was leading to random pains in other parts of my body I had no idea were connected. Alicia had the perfect words and instruction to help me find these muscles and use them properly after they were ‘turned off’ by pregnancy and delivery. She was able to get me back on track by the weekly exercises she recommends. She is truly amazing at her craft and everyone should have a session with her to get yourself centered back after pregnancy.

I saw Alicia 10 weeks after giving birth to my son for physical therapy to recover from pregnancy, as well as the diastasis recti that plagued me after giving birth. She was amazing to work with. She made me feel comfortable in my new body, while helping me connect to my pelvic floor again. She also was able to address my tight shoulders and glutes that were bearing the brunt of new mom childcare and pregnancy. Her understanding of a woman’s body after childbirth is refreshing, especially since my own doctor didn’t know how to handle/ understand my diastasis. I am still continuing my path to recovery with all the exercises she taught me. I highly recommend her for any woman looking to thoughtfully recover after pregnancy.
