Dr. Alexandra Morgan, PT, DPT
Pelvic Floor Therapist
Pregnancy & Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist
I received my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Seton Hall University and a B.S. in Exercise Science from Rutgers University. I have a diverse background of education and experience in the fields of pelvic health, orthopedics, acute rehab, geriatrics, and vestibular. I have done extensive continuing education to become a Pelvic Floor Therapist and a Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist.
I have had two children (3 pregnancies, 2 births) and have experienced various pelvic floor dysfunctions after each pregnancy and delivery, as well as other orthopedic issues (pelvic girdle, pubic symphysis, L hip, and low back pain). After experiencing lingering pain, pressure, and intermittent issues with leaking I knew traditional rehabs were not going to be enough. In the process of trying to fix myself, I discovered there is a significant lack of knowledge, education, resources, and providers to help other individuals with these issues. It's also sad that women are NOT being automatically told about pelvic floor PT after pregnancy, childbirth, pelvic surgeries or other signs of issues.
In the process of fixing my own issues, I decided to pursue more education and training within this specialized field. This specialized field has felt like my calling, and I love what I do. I'm always trying to learn more and constantly taking continuing education courses. My most recently completed advanced course was called "The Ultimate Bowel Course: GI and Pelvic Floor." Did you know PT's can help with bowel stuff too?
My personal life:
I am a lifelong resident of New Jersey and currently reside at the Jersey Shore with my husband, two young boys, and golden retriever, Arya (she was names after the fierce Game of Thrones character). My hobbies and interests include never getting to sit down thanks to having 2 young children, reading, and exercise - obsessed with Peloton strength, cycle, and tread classes.
