Alexandra L. Wilkes
PT, DPT, OCS, PRPC
I was a Dance major at School of the Arts in Rochester, which resulted in a round of physical therapy for knee pain that set the rest of my life in motion. I went to Skidmore College to study Exercise Science and Dance, and then MGH Institute of Health Professions in Boston, MA for my Doctorate of Physical Therapy. In 2011, I began working in Pelvic Health and discovered my true passion. I found that pelvic health impacted every aspect of health, life, and mental well-being, and being able to influence a person’s ability perform all activities, including those in the bedroom and bathroom, without fear, shame, or pain is my true calling.
To help people become their best selves, I pursued specialty certifications in both Orthopedics and Pelvic Health. I moved to New York City in 2015 to complete an Orthopedic Residency through NYU Steinhardt. Following residency, I became an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) through the American Physical Therapy Association. Additionally, I received extensive training in pelvic health through the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institution, and in 2019 I became a certified Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner (PRPC).
In 2023, I moved back to the Rochester area with my husband, son, and corgi, Willow. I love spending time with my family while walking along the Erie Canal. In my downtime, I always have a new book on my kindle (and try to balance between trashy rom-coms and polyvagal theory). I welcome you to come to physical therapy with questions… and book recommendations.
