Dr. Alexis Booth, CEO & Founder of Body Better Physical Therapy in Milton, FL

MY STORY

As a physical therapist I’ve worked in many different practices and settings and even when working for the most accommodating companies, I always ran into treatment and time restrictions, working overtime to finish programming, documentation and billing after hours in order to spend as much time with my patients while they were present. I was burning out and exhausted just one year out of school. Thankfully as a military spouse I’ve been uprooted a few times and have been able to refresh with each move and try various job to find what works and what doesn’t. 

 

Throughout my pregnancies I was constantly teaching myself how to exercise and modify things in the state I was in. After having kids I tried seeing physical therapists myself to find accountability and help to return to CrossFit, running, jumping without leaking and to heal my abdominal separation, but none of the providers I saw could serve me in the capacity I wanted or needed. Hence, I found myself teaching myself these tools once again.  

 

Body Better Physical Therapy is a place for active women to stay active. Through pregnancy, after childbirth and years down the line, you can and should keep moving, without fear and without restrictions. In my model of care, I can spend quality time with you, without constraints and I know you’ll feel better - because I’ve been through it myself and I've found what works.

BACKGROUND

Dr. Alexis is the CEO and founder of Body Better Physical Therapy. She is a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). She was born and raised in California where she received her B.S. at San Diego State University and doctorate at CSU, Sacramento.  She discovered her love for physical therapy and rehabilitation while competing as a Division 1 athlete and national champion cheerleader at SDSU. She has thrived in multiple physical therapy settings including an internship with EXOS San Diego focusing on performance physical therapy tailored towards professional athletes to working 3 years exclusively full-time with active duty Marines and Navy Sailors post-concussion, blast exposure and TBI at Intrepid Spirit Concussion and Recovery Center. It was there where she developed yoga, mobility and strength and conditioning programs to compliment the patient's vestibular PT treatment in order to maximize their recovery and performance. During this time she also had the pleasure of working with numerous members of Special Operations Forces that often needed a bridge between clinical physical therapy and performance training.

Alexis was introduced to CrossFit by her husband in 2016 and found it was the perfect combination of gymnastics and athleticism; just what her life was missing after college athletics. She began casually as a Physical Therapist for CrossFit Reignited in Hampstead, NC then branched her services in Milton, FL where she pridefully opened her PT clinic within CrossFit 3P. Currently, Body Better PT operates out of Bountiful, UT where Alexis resides with her husband and their three adorable children.
