Angela Gracia

Physical Therapist

Angela received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Regis University in 2017. During her clinical rotations she gained experience working with a wide range of patients including those with orthopedic, neurological, pelvic floor, and sports injuries. While at Regis she participated in a global immersion program in Nicaragua where she had the opportunity to work with children with cerebral palsy and initiate a continuing education program with the local physical therapy program in Managua.

Angela’s philosophy is providing patient centered care that is evidence based and individualized. She believes in the power of knowledge and educating her patients on their recovery while providing them with the tools to advocate for their own care.

She is pursuing manual therapy certification through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy and plans to start courses to treat pelvic floor disorders through the American Physical Therapy Association.
