We are so excited to invite a new professional on board at YAX. Meet Mac, our resident physical therapist and female specialist.
Mac Nwosu, PT, DPT, MBA, FAAOMPT, CSCS is a licensed sports and women’s health physical therapist who helps pregnant, postpartum, and active women stay fit, healthy, and mobile without medication, injections, and surgery.
He helps women get back into shape after having a baby, not because they cannot because they are not sure how to go about it or are not sure how to deal with complications after delivery. He helps women physically prepare for pregnancy, maintain physical fitness during pregnancy, and return to fitness after giving birth.
His interest in physical therapy started as an injured young athlete who spent countless hours in physical therapy to return to high school track and football. He graduated with a B.S. in Exercise Science from Texas Lutheran University and then earned a Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) from the University of North Texas Health Science Center. He completed a post-professional manual therapy fellowship through the Institute of Athlete Regeneration. He is a Certified Pre- & Postnatal Coach from The Coaching & Training Women Academy has completed the American Physical Therapy Association’s (APTA) Section on Women’s Health Pelvic Floor and Obstetrics Series and has additionally attended Herman and Wallace coursework.
His clinical expertise includes management of acute and chronic sports/orthopedic conditions and pelvic floor dysfunction related to pregnancy and postpartum. He has a particular interest in the junction of orthopedics, sports, and women’s health including exercise during and postpartum, incontinence in athletes and the correlation between low back, hip pain and pelvic floor issues.
His philosophy integrates evidence-based manual therapy, exercise, and movement with a biopsychosocial approach to treat the whole patient.
