Dr. Nicole E. Laird, PT, DPT


Nicole Laird helps women feel like themselves again and return to the activities and exercises they love by avoiding those extra bathroom trips, stopping pain, and helping them navigate the many changes that women’s bodies go through over a lifetime.


As a mother herself, Nicole understands that it is hard to figure out how to get it all done. 


After having her son, and realizing that there was a huge lack of information, guidance, and knowledge for postpartum women, Nicole knew she had to help guide women back to their health, fitness, and exercise routines safely.  


Nicole was plagued with minor injury after injury when trying to return to her favorite activities of CrossFit, yoga, and running after having her son, she knew she needed to develop a safe place for women to learn how to build strength again from the inside out. 

She made it her mission to guide as many women through the journey of pregnancy and postpartum health and fitness as possible.  She NEVER wants a woman to feel alone or as though she has to stop all activities she loves because of pain or discomfort.  She wanted to be able to empower women to understand all the changes that happen to their body and how to safely navigate through all of life’s stages to remain active and energized for a lifetime.  That’s why she knew she had to start Hays County Physical Therapy and Wellness.
