PHYSICAL THERAPY

Welcome to Pelvic Strong Physical Therapy!

Pelvic Strong Physical Therapy specializes in supporting women in their Women’s Health Journey.

 

My mission is to provide high quality and personalized treatments in order to achieve the best outcomes for my clients. I use a combination of the skills I have acquired in orthopedics and pelvic health in order to create a specific plan of care for my clients.

 

Meet Eyja!

My name is Eyja and I was born and raised in Iceland. I moved to the US in 2003 to attend the University of Georgia. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise and Sport Science in 2006 and a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of St. Augustine in 2009. I completed an orthopedic clinical residency and earned my manual therapy certification in 2010.


My passion for pelvic health started when I became a mother myself. I realized how common pelvic floor dysfunction was, and that there was a lack of education and guidance for women postpartum. My goal is to empower women and to help them restore function and confidence in their bodies. I develop a personalized treatment plan to get women back to doing the things they love to do.
 
I have been passionate about sports my whole life. I ran track for the University of Georgia and I competed for the Icelandic national team in middle distance for several years. I did CrossFit for many years, and I am familiar with the different movements within the sport.


When I'm not working, I like to spend my time with my husband and two boys. I enjoy working out, watching sports, and all outdoor activities.
