Meet Katie Verschaetse, DPT

Philosophy of Care

My interest in physical therapy originally stemmed from my own sports related injuries in pole vaulting and swimming. I have developed a passion to help other individuals return to activities that give them joy by tailoring treatment plans that include patient education, therapeutic exercise and manual therapy techniques. There is nothing I love more than hearing patient success stories and that they have accomplished their goals.
