Karen Woodbeck, MS, PT, OCS, ATC, CKTI
Karen is a certified orthopedic clinical specialist, physical therapist and athletic trainer with more than 24 years’ experience. Her primary focuses include orthopedics, sports medicine, manual therapy, pilates, taping and laser.
Karen believes in restoring good position with mobility while building stability, and immediately increasing function while reducing pain. Teaching the body how to do this using neuromuscular (brain-body) education is a strong part of client treatment. To achieve the client’s goals, Karen utilizes a variety of skills obtained from years of practice incorporating extensive continuing education, including courses with many internationally-renowned instructors in muscle energy technique, Mulligan’s mobilization with movement, myofascial release, McConnell technique, primal reflex release technique, craniosacral therapy, laser, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation and kinesio taping.
A philosophy she follows is “Never Give Up!” originally coined by Winston Churchill and embodied by the late Fr. Jim Mifsud S.M., who was a mentor. Karen loves working with clients who are motivated to improve and is tenacious in her pursuit of achieving their success.
