Alison AJ Hayman, PT, DPT, OCS
In my time as a physical therapist, I've worked in a variety of orthopedic settings, from a community hospital, to small private practices and large chains in New York and Chicago. The diverse experiences that brought me here help inform my practice.
I'm passionate about continuing education; in addition to seeking the most current techniques and, I seek out additional skills and certifications. After the birth of my first child, I started taking a series of classes to help me specialize in pelvic floor physical therapy. This area is less well known but is imperative to every person's function, and I have found that it allows me to offer a comprehensive set of diagnostic and treatment options to all of my patients. In addition, I am currently in the process of earning a certificate in obstetric physical therapy (CAPP-OB), as well as one in prenatal/postpartum corrective exercise (PCES).
As someone who has rehabilitated myself through various physical challenges, I understand firsthand that movement is medicine and physical therapy can be a powerful force in returning a person to their optimal function. No matter what a person's goals are, I am committed to supporting them in working toward them. I especially enjoy working with recreational athletes and mothers (which is also a form of athleticism).
Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, strength training, walking, chasing my kids around as cardio, meditation, traveling, and spending time with family.
