PT, DPT

Dr. Leah Connerty earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Franklin Pierce University. Prior to her graduate studies, Leah attended Hobart and William Smith Colleges where she majored in Biology and minored in Health Professions with a concentration in Mind and Body. Leah’s journey to becoming a physical therapist began as a patient herself as she was in and out of PT with various injuries related to soccer. Leah has a personal understanding of what it takes to participate in injury rehabilitation as a young, high-level athlete and understands the demands of regaining full sport level performance.

I grew up in Boxford MA, a woodsy town north of Boston. I attended Hobart and William Smith Colleges in upstate New York where I majored in Biology and minored in Health Professions. I also played D3 soccer and was part of 2013 NCAA National Championship team. I studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark my junior year and when I returned for my senior year I began working at Ravines Winery. Following graduation, I worked as an aid in a kindergarten while applying to graduate programs. I then began the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program at Franklin Pierce University in Manchester, New Hampshire.

During my clinical affiliations, I learned my affinity for treating the outpatient pelvic floor population. My first job after graduation was at an outpatient pain clinic in Denver, Colorado, where I had a detailed look into the care of patients with chronic pain. A couple of years ago I moved to New Jersey where I began my career here at Body Moksha PT where I have continued to specialize in pelvic health, especially with the postpartum populous. Additionally, having been a competitive athlete myself, I understand the unique demands that our population of athletes have and what they need from physical therapy to be able to fulfill their commitment to their sport.

Core Values: I commit to nurturing strong and meaningful relationships and recognize their enduring significance in both my personal and professional life. I also firmly believe in actively celebrating life’s moments, no matter how small. I also emphasize the Danish concept of Hygge ,which encapsulates a feeling of coziness, contentment, and warmth, to provide solace amidst life’s chaos in my home.

“Make time to enjoy a good meal, read a great book, take a train ride to nowhere. Value the quiet (or not so quiet) memories made in the company of friends and family” – Kevin Connerty

Favorite Movies: 

  • Outlander

I am a full-time outpatient physical therapist at Body Moksha PT and specialize in women’s pelvic health.

I like having a full hour to work one on one with my patients, the cozy atmosphere of the clinic, and the energy of my team.

When not working I enjoy cooking new recipes, going to yoga or on walks in Loantaka, watching TV shows and movies with my boyfriend Steve, getting facetime calls from my nephews in MA, and spending quality time with friends and family.
