Kelly K. Fosberg, PT, DPT, PhD

Kelly’s clinical expertise is in orthopaedic musculoskeletal diagnoses and uses a fitness forward approach to promote exercise and movement to guide patients toward self-efficacy, resiliency, and fearless movement as the ultimate goal. Resistance training promotes reduced injury risk, faster recovery, and overall reduced mortality so patients can get back to sport or an active lifestyle and improve their quality of life.

People who move more feel better! Kelly specializes in the strength & conditioning rehabilitation of teens to adults, exercise management of neck pain, low back pain, post-operative rehabilitation for spine, shoulders, hips, & knees, and return to sport or active lifestyles. Kelly’s professional interests lie in orthopaedics, strength & conditioning, research, and academia. She truly enjoys empowering her patients by helping them to get stronger and lead a more active life. Outside of the clinic Kelly spends most of her free time leading an active lifestyle by heavy weightlifting, hiking, and golfing.
