Kate received her Doctorate Degree from Simmons College. Kate is also a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist (OCS) awarded through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists. Only 1% of the Physical Therapists hold this prestigious board certification. She is certified in Dry Needling (Cert-DN). The Cert DN requires intensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology and the body’s neurological and chemical responses to soft tissue manipulation.
Kate is currently enrolled in the Spinal Manipulation Institute and working towards her Osteopractic Diploma, which consists of numerous Post-Doctoral courses including Myofascial release techniques, Spinal Manipulation, differential diagnosis, and the implementation of thrust manipulation techniques to each region of spine. Kate is certified in Graston Technique, which incorporates a patented instrument that is utilized to aide in myofascial release.
Kate has presented on several occasions for the Association of Extremity Nerve Surgeons (AENS) Annual Scientific Conferences on mobilization of the nervous system. Neural mobilization requires a thorough understanding of the human nervous system. These techniques are stretching techniques that aim to desensitize the nervous system.
Kate is also a Vestibular Rehabilitation Specialist (Cert-VRS). She has also studied the work of Tom Myer’s Anatomy Trains, which is a comprehensive approach to the anatomy and function of the fascial system in the body combined with a holistic overview of myofascial therapy. The interconnection of the fascia throughout the body has a direct effect on posture, compensatory strategies, and pain patters. These key concepts, Kate’s clinical expertise and training as a Physical Therapist, and vision for the ultimate stretch for her patients were key factors in the development of the Rezilient stretches.
Kate is the managing partner of Hampton Physical Therapy and continues to actively treat. She is also a Partner of Exeter Sport & Spine and Pinnacle Rehabilitation Network.
