Dr Katherine Kulp – PT, DPT, CFMT, CSCS, FiT – received her doctorate in physical therapy from the University of Colorado in 2011.
As a therapist at Children’s Hospital Colorado, she worked in tandem with rehabilitation physiatrists to implement a multi-disciplinary clinic for complex concussion management in children, emphasising the use of manual therapy to treat concussion sequelae.
Prior to moving to Dubai, Katherine was working in Anchorage, Alaska. There she worked with a broad patient population, including athletes, youth with chronic pain, and individuals who had “failed” prior conservative care for complex orthopaedic issues. She particularly enjoys working with patients with back pain, neck pain, headache, and unresolved sports injuries.
In addition to her clinical experience in outpatient orthopaedics, she has also worked in research investigating best practice in manual orthopaedic physical therapy.
Katherine has pursued a broad spectrum of continuing education, and was awarded designation of Certified Functional Manual Therapist with Honors in 2014. The Institute of Physical Art then selected her to provide clinical instruction and guidance to a group of 20 physical therapists in New Delhi, India.
She is currently pursuing orthopaedic manual physical therapy fellowship, the highest level of training available in the US, to continue to hone her clinical reasoning and expand her skill set. She is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists, and is certified as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist.
Katherine has developed community outreach programmes in dance medicine, concussion management and women’s health. Trained as a classical ballet dancer, Katherine has an abiding love of movement that continues to fuel her interest in rehabilitation. She enjoys travelling, biking, reading and cooking in her free time, and has finally learned to cross country ski after wintering in Alaska.Book Now
