her Doctorate degree in Physical
Therapy and concentration on Health Studies.
After completing her residency, Kate continued to focus on outpatient orthopedics before partnering up with Matthew Carrico at Hampton Physical Therapy in 2005.
In 2008 Kate recognized a need for physical therapy in Seabrook, NH. Kate decided to expand their practice to Seabrook where she continues to aid the rehabilitation needs of patients in the greater seacoast area.
Kate is one of the first local PTís to become certified in the Graston Techniqueô which incorporates a patented instrument that enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and restrictions that affect normal function. Kate has found this technique to be very successful in treating chronic and acute conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonosis, and tennis elbows.
Kate is also certified in Trigger Point Dry Needling
(TDN) and is one of the only therapists in the area currently performing this treatment. Trigger Point Dry Needling is a treatment technique, which uses small filament type needles (acupuncture needles) to release tight muscles with the goal of permanently reducing muscle pain and dysfunction. This technique has been extremely beneficial for ptís experiencing chronic tension headaches and has had many patients have complete elimination of their symptoms.
Kate has also had significant success treating patients with chronic plantar fasciitis/Achilles tendonosis by combining her Graston
Technique in conjunction with neural mobilization. In 2008, Kate and Matt presented at the Association of Extremity Nerve Surgeons (AENS) 7th Annual Scientific conference in Ft. Worth, Texas on mobilization of the nervous system. Mobilization of the Nervous System has been a key component with treating not only these 2 conditions but also sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, cervical radiculopathy, and tarsal tunnel syndrome or any nerve entrapment or neuropathy.
Lastly, Kate also performs spinal thrust manipulations (adjustments), biomechanical assessment of the foot with foot casting/orthotic fabrication, footwear prescriptions, and post-operative rehabilitation programs.
