PTDPTOCSSFMACMTPTGraston Cert.

Kristin graduated with her Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from St. Louis University in 2005, and later earned her transitional Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of St. Augustine in 2008, and received her orthopedic specialist certification that year as well. A constant student and avid learner, she recently started incorporating dry needling into her practice to complement her use of manual therapy techniques, which she has found to work well with the overuse injuries and chronic pain patients. Kristin grew up an athlete, and after high school turned her attention to endurance sports. She has completed 7 marathons and recently started competing in long distance triathlons, completing 2 Ironman races, with her sights set on more. As an endurance athlete, she enjoys working with this population and understands what it takes to get them back on their feet as quickly as possible. She enjoys treating all orthopedic diagnoses, but has a passion for treating the post-operative hip patient, as well as pre/post natal women. The daughter of 2 educators, she understands the importance that patient education plays in the role of recovery, and believe this is at the core of getting patients back on their feet. In her free time, she enjoys training for triathlons, as well as cheering for her hometown team, the Green Bay Packers. Kristin and her husband Matt reside on the Northwest side of the city in Norwood Park and she looks forward to serving the Bucktown and surrounding communities.
