After experiencing a host of injuries, health issues, and recurring back pain for more than ten years, Dr. Sofia Costa dedicated her life to figuring out why it all happened for her, and has made it her mission to support others in healing from the inside-out.
Witnessing the gap within the medical field by observing her parents’ work as medical physicians, she knew then, at a very young age, that she wanted to help people feel better, too, but in a different way.
In 2012, Dr. Costa earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in San Marcos, California, after working for three years as a Tier 3 Master Trainer at Equinox Fitness in Miami, FL. By June 2016, Dr. Costa decided to branch off on her own as a sole practitioner in Los Angeles so that she can be the change she wanted to see and provide more attentive support to meet her clients’ needs.
Dr. Costa is more than a typical Doctor of Physical Therapy. She integrates functional medicine, emotional healing, gut health, movement, and energy medicine to connect the dots and bridge the gap with what people are missing. She gets to the deep root cause, creates awareness that 80% of back pain is not the back, and provides clients with tools to empower them to feel stronger in their mind and body. Dr. Costa transitioned to offering her services online so clients can gain inside-out relief out of the comfort of their own home.
She has been featured in VoyageLA magazine as one of Los Angeles’s most inspiring stories, and continues to inspire by teaching educational workshops, speaking at various health and wellness events, podcast features, and soon to be leading retreats.
Dr. Sofia Costa currently lives a bi-coastal life, traveling between Los Angeles, and her birthplace, Puerto Rico.
