DR. KIMBERLY WHITCHER PT, DPT
I’m a physical therapist who is passionate about helping people to move better, feel better and perform better.
I graduated from Texas State University in 2015 with my Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and I am currently certified in dry needling and post-partum corrective exercises.
I have worked in several different settings of rehabilitation, including inpatient rehab, outpatient rehab, acute care, and home health. I have found a passion in helping people move better and feel better and I pride myself in the knowledge I have gained of the human body.
I’m passionate about educating my patients about the anatomy and physiology of what is causing their dysfunction and work hard on improving the impairment.
I am excited to launch into the next level of healthcare by becoming a mobile, concierge PT. What this means is that I can work around your schedule and come to you.
Treatment will be 1:1 direct, private care, 1 hour treatment sessions and access to have questions answered quickly.
Please contact me today to answer any questions you may have about physical therapy to schedule an appointment for an evaluation.
