Centered Physio


Aliza Rudavsky, DPT, PhD

A native of Pittsburgh, Aliza grew up as a dancer.  She studied dance in college and performed professionally for several years before going to physical therapy school in Seattle.  As a physical therapist, Aliza has specialized training in pelvic floor dysfunction and women's health PT through the Herman and Wallace Institute.  She trained as a dance PT through the Harkness Center for Dance Injuries and the Australian Ballet.  She also has unique training in physical therapy for voice dysfunction and treats both performing artists and other occupational voice users. 

Aliza completed her PhD studying adolescent ballet dancers and has published in several sports journals as well as the International Association of Dance Medicine and Science. Aliza is a professor at Penn State University and her current research interests involve connecting the pelvic floor to the vocal folds in their capacity to regulate pressures in the trunk. 

Aliza is the mother of two delightful boys and enjoys biking, hiking and exploring central PA with her family.
