Alexandra Griego, DPT
Alexandra believes that physical therapy is an amazing aspect of health care…
In PT, we have an opportunity to assist in helping our patients return to their daily activities or sports through movement. It is my job to educate my patients, give them the tools, and show them how to properly rehab their injuries.
She has personally experienced the struggles of being a competitive athlete who has suffered an injury, and who is eager to return to the soccer field. She understands that the stresses of life and rehabbing an injury can be not only physically challenging, but also mentally.
Alexandra states she likes to take the time to get to know her patients/clients, determine their goals, and come up with a treatment plan to help them achieve those goals. She says it is a lot of hard work and takes time, but together “we can get you back to the things that you love to do.”
In her spare time, Alexandra loves spending time outside with her family and two dogs. She enjoys paddle boarding, hiking, running, mountain biking, snowboarding, playing soccer and camping. She grew up playing competitive soccer where she had numerous injuries, causing her to be in and out of physical therapy. Then, during undergrad, she dislocated her patella and tore various ligaments in her knee, requiring surgery. She had that surgery at NMOA in 2009, followed by Physical Therapy.
Alexandra received her bachelor’s degree from the University of New Mexico, and graduated with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2018 from Austin, Texas. She then moved back to Albuquerque in 2019, where she joined the great team at New Mexico Orthopaedics!
