Katie Kuykendall completed her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Washington University in St. Louis, the #1 ranked physical therapy school in the United States. Her practice in the field has exposed her to many different orthopedic conditions but she is especially strong at treating athletes and weekend warriors. Katie’s background as a certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) put her on the sideline and in the locker room for countless hours, developing expertise in how to treat both acute and chronic athletic injuries. Katie also understands what kind of demands an athlete places on their body because she was an athlete, herself. While playing soccer at Hardin-Simmons she was selected as a 3-time DIII All-American and 1-time National Player (Forward) of the Year by D3soccer.com. Katie is currently spending time outside of the clinic studying to become a Board Certified Specialist in Orthopedic Physical Therapy.
