Professional Statement

Thank you for choosing Dr. Leah Lichaa!

Dr. Lichaa is a Physical Therapy with over 7 years of diverse experience. Dr. Lichaa graduated from Long Island University in 2009, earning a Doctorate in Physical Therapy degree after earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology in 2006. 

Following graduation, Leah began to develop her skills as a Doctor of Physical Therapy in the outpatient setting with a focus in orthopedic and neurologic cases. Dr. Lichaa took on different clinical challenges in order to gain more experience and improve the quality of life and physical function of individuals with neurological conditions. 

Since then, Leah has continued to expand her experience by working with the pediatric population within the NYC Department of Education (DOE). With the DOE, Leah’s focus has been to maximize the physical function of students with physical disabilities to help them improve their academic performance. Leah has worked closely with students varying in diagnosis from Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy and other various developmental delays. 

Leah has a broad and diverse scope of practice which she is continuously expanding on through continuing education courses. She has been trained in Maitland-Australian Physiotherapy for Stabilization Training and Rehabilitation. Leah also treats Women’s Health conditions including pelvic floor dysfunction and Diastasis Recti as a Tupler Technique associate. 

Leah enjoys working with athletes young and old to allow them to return to the sport they love. Leah was very athletic while growing up and this background has allowed her to gain insight into the struggles and disappointments that many athletes go through when they are injured or are experiencing a chronic condition.
