Kendal Brey PT, DPT is a graduate of the Indiana University Doctor of Physical Therapy program. Her clinical experience primarily includes outpatient orthopedic practice throughout the lifespan and treatment of patients with lower extremity amputations. During her final year of the physical therapy program, she completed a ten-week specialty clinical rotation in residual limb management, functional training, and prosthetic training for people with amputations. Since then, she has taken particular interest in treating this population and returning people to engaging in the activities that they love.
“I decided that I wanted to be a physical therapist when I was a junior in high school. My goal was to teach someone to walk again, but I was not sure exactly what that would look like. During my final year as a physical therapy student, I was placed on a specialty rotation working with patients with lower extremity amputations. That was the first time I truly helped someone progress from solely using a wheelchair to walking hills behind the clinic and jogging on the treadmill. At that point, I knew that I wanted to help more individuals just like those with whom I was privileged enough to work on that rotation. Physical therapy following amputation is difficult to find, and resources are few and far between. I believe that all individuals should have convenient access to many options for healthcare so that they can choose the provider who is right for them; my goal is to bridge this gap to provide individuals in the central Indiana area with greater access to quality care.”
In addition to her clinical practice, Kendal is involved in mission work to benefit orphanages and access to medical care and education in Haiti. She has been involved with fundraising for several outreach groups including Haitian Support Ministries, Freedom Global Outreach, and Self-Sufficiency Project. In her free time, she enjoys visiting with friends and family, hiking, painting, and trying local restaurants.
