Having a child can be tough on the body. Whether you are pregnant, had a C-section or had a vaginal delivery, your body has gone through immense change. If you experience back pain or neck pain during your pregnancy, you’re not alone! If you find yourself leaking urine, having pain with sex, having a sensitive C-section or episiotomy scar, or feeling a heaviness/burning sensation “down there,”, you are not alone. As a physical therapist specializing in pelvic health, Dr. Gazi treats a host of pregnancy-related issues. Dr. Gazi helps you set and achieve your physical goals so you can overcome these challenges and feel confident in your body.

Giving back to the community, and to the world, is a strong value of mine. I began a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Physical Therapy International Foundation, where I bring free PT services globally to underserved populations while teaching students in PT doctoral programs across the United States. I am also the proud host and producer for the leading health and wellness podcast "Fit As A Fiddle", found everywhere you search for podcasts. Through my work in PT, Yoga, and Mindfulness, I wish to increase awareness of healthy body, healthy mind, and healthy lifestyles.
