Alicia Magro, PT, MPT

Alicia has had the enjoyment of helping people with their recovery for the past 15 years.  Her passion for the medical world started by growing up playing sports and dancing.  She received a bachelors degree in Kinesiology Exercise Science from the University of Wisconsin- Madison.  She loved being a badger so much that she stayed at UW Madison to receive her masters in physical therapy!  Over the past 15 years she has enjoyed working with various populations and diagnoses in the outpatient orthopedic setting.  After going through a bilateral hip surgery herself, she has learned the daily challenges of someone going through a major surgery or limitation and has developed a further passion for treating hip dysfunctions.  She also enjoys working with the pediatric and prenatal/postpartum population, dancers, as well as those with TMJ dysfunction and migraines. She has also pursued certifications in the Graston techniques as well as Kinesiotape.  

Alicia was also recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia and has found the frustrations with managing chronic fatigue and pain and the mismanagement provided by the medical community, which so many of her patients have also experienced.  After finding Red Rock Physical Therapy she has discovered the healing powers of myofascial technique for not only chronic pain but for all populations.  She is  now currently pursuing furthering her skills with the Myofascial Release Technique by John Barnes, PT.
