From a young age, Alejandra Rodriguez knew she wanted a career in healthcare. After volunteering at some physical therapy clinics and hospitals, she became fascinated with Physical Therapy as a means of helping people recover from injury and return to an active lifestyle.
Alejandra obtained her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Toronto, and a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from the Hogeschool van Amsterdam in The Netherlands. After completing her program, she then obtained her physiotherapy license in Canada as well as the United States in 2006. She spent several years working in the chronic pain management program in Toronto Western Hospital where she learned the importance of working with an interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals to treat complex conditions. Her goal was always to help patients restore their quality of life in every single aspect.
As part of her ongoing training, Alejandra has completed several certifications including acupuncture, manual therapy based-rehabilitation, pelvic health physiotherapy, dry needling and Trigenics, a complex procedure which retrains the way communicates its movement and/or pain signals with the muscles of the body. Alejandra's passion has extended to focusing more on helping those who are trying to become pregnant, those who are pregnant, and those who have had children, to regain their quality of life and pelvic function before, during and after childbirth. She is very excited to be working in collaboration with Mums & Tums Canada to serve this community.
