Your Physical Therapist
Dr. Allison Matos is a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and owner of Body Smart Physio, a specialty practice focused on helping women prevent and overcome pelvic floor issues and injuries to life live as BIG as they desire!
Allison specializes in working with pregnant and postnatal women, fitness athletes, and women experiencing pelvic pain. She enjoys collaborating with women during pregnancy who want to stay active, prepare their pelvis for birth, and safely return to exercise and full activity over the postpartum period.
Her practice brings together orthopedic and pelvic health treatment to provide a more holistic approach to rehabilitation for long lasting results and sustainable wellness.
She founded Body Smart with the intent of making the highest quality one-on-one pelvic and orthopedic care accessible to people who want more than cookie cutter treatment.
Allison is certified in Orthopedic Manual Therapy (hands on treatment) through extensive training with Evidence in Motion and is Certified in Management of the Fitness Athlete (CMFA). She became a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist in 2016 and is a 200 hr yoga teacher.
Allison has extensive 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 involve thoroughly discussing clients preferences, 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.
