About Dr. Caitlin Deems
Dr. Caitlin Deems is the PT & owner of Mom Bodies, LLC. She graduated from Mercer University with a doctoral degree in Physical Therapy after becoming an Athletic Trainer. She has worked in a variety of settings, including adult orthopedics, pediatric aquatic & neurodevelopmental therapy. She works part-time in an outpatient pediatric clinic alongside her mother, the owner & a fellow PT. Caitlin is now following in her mother’s footsteps by owning a private PT practice – Mom Bodies Perinatal Physical Therapy.
Before having her own child, Mom Bodies was just a dream as she saw so many of her friends struggle through their pregnancies with pain that was avoidable. During her own pregnancy, this dream grew into a possibility as she saw a growing need for perinatal access to physical therapy in her area. After the birth of her son, this need became reality through prayer & the support of family & friends.
“After a very long L&D, I realized how important physical preparation is to a healthy pregnancy & delivery. Afterwards, we saw a gap in postpartum rehabilitation as well. I felt a calling to help women experience full joy in their role as mothers by addressing their physical well-being.”
Caitlin teaches prenatal classes & leads a Bible study at a local pregnancy resource center. If you are interested in partnering with Mom Bodies to bring healing to women in your circle, you can contact her here.
