Dr. Brittany Zis PT, DPT, C/NDT
Hi Mamas, I'm Brittany! I have been a physical therapist for 7 years! I have a passion for pediatrics and women's health, which is where the inspiration for Mother and Baby Wellness Collective came from.
My career began in pediatrics, treating infants and children. It has been a love of mine since I was a student. I am particularly passionate about treatment of babies 0-3 years to optimize gross motor development in those formative years.
When I found out I was pregnant with my son, I quickly noticed the lack of resources for women during the pre-pregnancy, prenatal, and postnatal periods. I found myself doing my own research and wellness programming to keep myself feeling good and able to continue my daily activities and job comfortably. In my postpartum recovery process, pelvic floor physical therapy was so helpful in my journey to returning to the activities that I love to do and reducing pain that came following birth. This process sparked my determination to change the way women are cared for during the motherhood journey. I'm here to change the conversation from "it's just part of being a mom!" to "physical therapy can help fix that!". It's my mission to debunk the misconception that common means normal.
I'm here for all the mamas and babies...I'm here for YOU!
