DR. ALICE RIEGERT, PT, DPT
Doctor of Physical Therapy
Dr. Alice Riegert is a Bay Area native who believes that the human body can heal through movement along with a little professional guidance. Alice’s path to physical therapy began when she needed care of her own after years of back and hip pain resulting from over-training martial arts.
Alice believes in an individualized approach and tailors her treatment towards each of her patients in a unique and thoughtful way, valuing their lifestyle, time, and goals. With over 15 years of experience in various martial arts: capoeira, BJJ, and muay thai, she has a knack for analyzing movement patterns and is able to create a strategic plan for all her patients.
Alice is certified in PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) techniques and philosophy which allows her to use a hands-on approach to educate her patients on ideal movement and muscle activation.
When not in the clinic you can find her teaching capoeira, a Brazilian martial art, to kids and adults in the East Bay. She travels internationally to participate in capoeira encounters and to teach injury prevention to martial artists. She also loves spending time with her three-year-old son and baby girl, baking pies, hiking with her cute pup and watching Ted Lasso with her husband.
