Kelsey earned a degree in Human Physiology at Gonzaga University followed by her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Regis University, which is known for its strong manual therapy training. She is board certified in orthopedics, earning the title OCS (Orthopedic Certified Specialist). She also has advanced training in Manual Therapy through NAIOMT, Pelvic Floor Rehab through the Herman and Wallace Institute, along with certification in the Graston Technique. As a physical therapist, she feels that the whole person should be considered when finding the best treatment path by utilizing a combination of evidence-based research, patient preference, and her own personal experience with sports and rehabilitation.
When it comes to treating pelvic floor dysfunction, she finds that there are many layers to any given issue that must be looked, whether it’s diet, posture and mechanics of daily activities and childcare, anxiety/stress management, etc. Weakness is not always the culprit when it comes to pelvic floor dysfunction, we must examine the pelvic floor as one might examine an elbow joint, does it move well, do the muscles contract well, are there muscles that are tight around it, can it go through its full motion on command by the patient and can it relax. Often teaching a patient how to utilize the pelvic floor again was all they needed, kegels are not always the answer!
With the best knowledge of both the orthopedic and the pelvic floor worlds, her favorite patients are those with any type of athletic goal, specializing in returning postpartum women back to running and fitness safely, as well as hip impingement and labral tears, injury prevention in young athletes, chronic pain with hypermobility, and post-operative rehab.
Outside of her work she enjoys running at Golden Gardens, hiking in the mountains, playing sports, and exploring all the new restaurants and breweries in town.
I started with a lot of pain and often couldn’t walk. It was difficult at times, but I now rarely have pain and go on long hikes. I don’t think there’s a better outcome.
She took time to help me understand exactly what ligaments were injured and she laid out a clear plan to rehabilitate them. Her optimism was contagious, and my recovery has gone faster and been more energizing than I imagined.
My experience was great! Scheduling was super easy and my therapist did a great job within the short period of time that we had together!
