Linda Sayyad, PT. DPT., Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist
Dr. Linda Sayyad is the clinic director at FeminoCentric Physical Therapy and Wellness. She is a licensed physical therapist with 9 years of experience treating patients with many different diagnoses. She strongly believes that treatments are more effective when the whole person is treated versus just the body part. Her main focus is on pelvic floor and orthopedic conditions. As a mother herself to two spunky girls under 5, she was hit with a variety of postpartum issues and could not find the right resources. She knew then that she wanted to focus her career on helping women of all ages, with their postpartum and/or orthopedic issues. Her goal is to empower women to live their best lives, with no limitations.
Danielle Race, PT. DPT.
Dr. Danielle Race graduated from Chapman University with her Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy where she was first introduced to pelvic floor therapy throughout her extensive coursework. She began her career as a PT in nursing homes because she had a passion for helping people maintain their independence and improve their quality of life. But after experiencing her first pregnancy and giving birth to her daughter, she found another passion for helping those with pelvic floor and orthopedic disorders. She saw first hand the lack of education and assistance that women were receiving, and knew that pelvic floor physical therapy should be a more recommended resource. She began her own studies and took many specialized courses on the issues that commonly occur during pregnancy and postpartum to prepare herself, and now strives to help others with the knowledge she gained. She's witnessed many people suffer in silence with issues like incontinence, pelvic pain, and chronic back pain. These people hadn't received treatment because they felt embarrassed or weren't aware that physical therapy could help them. Danielle's mission is to share knowledge and provide quality care so more people get the help they deserve, so that they can confidently return to doing the activities they love.
