Alix Sorrel, PT, DPT, OCS, PMA®-CPT

Alix Sorrel’s journey to becoming a board certified Orthopedic Physical Therapy Specialist and opening her own practice began with a simple desire that blossomed into a passion: to help people take the steps necessary to make their body a complete, whole and fully integrated unit.

“I want people to learn how to move in a way that their body works for them rather than against them,” she says earnestly.

At a young age, Alix was profoundly moved when she attended physical therapy for a sports injury.

Changed by what she experienced, Alix recognized her life’s mission, and set out to fulfill her passion. She graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Kinesiology/ Human Movement from Louisiana State University in 2006, and after deciding to take her education to the highest level earned a Doctorate in Physical Therapy at the University of Saint Augustine in 2008. She continued to further her education and expertise by obtaining a Board Certified Orthopedic Physical Therapy Specialist.

Today, Alix is living her dream. She opened Integrated Physical Therapy in 2012, fulfilling the mission she set for herself many years ago…allowing her to integrate Pilates Rehabilitation into her physical therapy practice.

“I enjoy providing one on one Physical Therapy Treatment and Pilates wellness services to my clients,” she says proudly.

Alix is an advanced teacher and mentor with Polestar Pilates Education and a certified Pilates Instructor through the Pilates Method Alliance.

Her unique practice of physical therapy involves the following:

  • Integrating manual therapy, women’s health adversely affected by pelvic floor dysfunction, and incorporating Pilates rehabilitation
  • Using a qualitative approach treating the body as a whole
  • Helping clients gain full range of motion and efficient movement
  • Successfully treating acute or chronic pain

“In January 2013 we expanded the practice by adding a fully equipped Pilates studio with qualified Pilates instructors providing Pilates Instruction,” Alix says. This expansion allows patients discharged from physical therapy to continue with Pilates wellness classes – taking them on their way to wholeness and wellness.

Also keeping her busy are the pride and joys of her life, her 6 year old daughter Emma and her 3 year old son Carter.

“I enjoy travelling, snowboarding, paddle-boarding and fishing whenever I can,” she says. “But what I love more than anything is nurturing and being a mother to Emma and Carter.”

At Integrated Physical Therapy, Alix’s unique approach to physical therapy and nurturing personality will lead you on the path to experiencing your body behaving in the optimal the way it was designed. Call to make an appointment or stop in today!
