DOCTOR OF PHYSICAL THERAPY / FOUNDER

Dr. Natalia Sikaczowski, PT, DPT, CSCS, BFR-C

Dr. Natalia Sikaczowski founded Symmetry Physical Therapy in 2014 with the fundamental belief that patients should be treated on an individual basis. Dr. Natalia believes patients should be given a diverse array of treatment modalities and techniques, along with a progressive and varied exercise and stretching program, to ensure maximum recovery. This all-encompassing approach, along with Dr. Natalia’s strong background in strength and conditioning, has led to Symmetry’s successful treatment programs for patients looking to get back into sport, recover from injury, or beat chronic pain.

Doctor of Physical Therapy/Certified Manual Therapist 

Dr. Stan Sowinski, PT, DPT, MTC

Dr. Stan Sowinski joined the Symmetry Physical Therapy team in March of 2018. Dr. Sowinski received his bachelor’s degree from the University of South Florida. He graduated with honors from the University of St. Augustine’s Doctor of Physical Therapy Program, a program recognized by its excellence in manual therapy. Since then, Dr. Sowinski has been practicing in outpatient orthopedics, where he specializes in evaluating and treating orthopedic injuries, sports injuries, neurological conditions, and post-operative rehabilitation.

Dr. Sowinski believes in determining the foundational cause of musculoskeletal pain during an evaluation, and educating his patients to help them gain a further understanding of their plan of care. Utilizing his knowledge and skills in evidence-based practice, manual therapy, sports performance, and kinesiology, he treats his patients to alleviate pain and accomplish their goals.

Dr. Sowinski’s interest in physical therapy and sports performance started at an early age when he participated in several sports, inspiring his passion for movement, sports performance, and treatment of musculoskeletal impairments.

Doctor of Physical Therapy / Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist / Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher

Dr. Adrian Lores PT, DPT, CSCS, NCPT

Dr. Adrian Lores' journey into the field of health, medicine, and movement began at an early age through competition in sport, rehabilitation, and fitness. Dr. Lores earned his Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science from the University of West Florida and his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Florida Gulf Coast University. His education at FGCU set the foundation for his critical reasoning skills via a problem based learning curriculum and continued to deepen his interest into the movement sciences.

Dr. Lores has received additional training, becoming a Certified Exercise Physiologist through the American College of Sports Medicine, a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and a Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher through Polestar Pilates.

Since graduating Dr. Lores has been practicing in Outpatient Orthopedics specializing in the diagnoses, management, and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries and movement related disorders. His approach is patient-centered, applying evidence based practices to evaluate, diagnose, and deliver interventions targeted to modifiable factors that drive pain and disability by means of a strong working alliance, hands on care, graded exercises, and lifestyle changes. Dr. Lores' clinical interests revolve around the patient-clinician interaction, chronic pain, low back pain, and clinical reasoning.

Doctor of Physical Therapy

Dr. Anna Lynch, PT, DPT

Anna received her Bachelor’s degree from Clemson University and her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the Medical University of South Carolina. She began her career working in neurological rehabilitation and pediatrics and has transitioned to outpatient orthopedics and sports rehabilitation.

She is currently working toward becoming a Certified Functional Manual Therapist through the Institute of Physical Art. This advanced certification is based on the concept that all tissues are interconnected, thus one must address the mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control systems in order to achieve efficient balance and movement. The certification also incorporates components of the Feldenkrais Method®, an approach that uses gentle, mindful movement to improve awareness, strength, and coordination.

Anna has a passion for teaching. Her goal is for each of her patients to learn and understand more about their bodies. She addresses the whole system rather than focusing solely on the area where the pain is experienced. She believes mental health and wellness are an important part of any pain management approach and she is efficient in recognizing pain patterns that could be related to outside stressors. She helps provide her patients with the resources needed to improve their outcomes.

Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

Doctor of Physical Therapy / Pelvic Floor Therapist / Cancer Rehabilitation Specialist

Dr. Krisia Gattas, PT, DPT

Dr. Krisia Gattas specializes in pelvic floor and cancer rehabilitation. She received her bachelor’s degree from Loyola University Chicago and graduated Suma Cum Laude as a doctor of physical therapy from the New York Institute of Technology. She became passionate about pelvic floor rehab during one of her clinical placements, and has pursued learning and practicing pelvic rehab ever since!

Dr. Gattas’s interest in becoming a physical therapist arose from helping PT missionaries translate from English to Spanish during their trips to Honduras, where she was born and raised. She immediately saw the high demand and low supply of therapists in Honduras and in developing countries, and she wanted to make sure she could someday help them.
