Kelly’s area of clinical interest is in manual therapy and exercise for the management of both acute and chronic spine diagnoses, rehabilitation of shoulder, hip, and knee injuries, post-surgical rehabilitation, and sport-specific rehabilitation and training. She uses an integrative manual therapy approach with Maitland, Gibbson & Tehahn spine manipulation, McKenzie, and Mulligan philosophies, tailoring treatment as appropriate for each individual patient, providing one-on-one care.
Kelly chose to become a physical therapist specializing in orthopaedics because of her interest in the medical profession and a passion for exercise and wellness. Orthopaedic physical therapy allows her the platform to pursue her interests, both clinical and research based, while providing professional quality care to the patients. Born and raised in Flagstaff, a true native, Kelly enjoys all that her hometown has to offer in the outdoors, taking her dogs hiking as much as possible and spending quality time with family and friends. Kelly considers it a privilege to serve and work in her hometown helping to improve the quality of life of her patients.
