Dr. Katie Andrew, PT DPT
Dr. Katie Andrew, PT DPT has been providing dynamic, progressive, manual-therapy based physical therapy for 18 years. A 1997 graduate of Arrowhead High School, Katie earned her Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from Bradley University in 2001. During her four years at Bradley, Dr. Andrew was a Division 1 cross country and track scholar athlete.
After college, Dr. Andrew moved to Chicago where she worked in hospital care, workman’s compensation, and in a large chain that provided generalized outpatient orthopedic care. In 2008, she joined a small private practice and thrived in an environment that allowed her treat each patient with more personalized care. By 2014, Dr. Andrew earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree and felt she had truly found her passion working with patients in a small clinical setting. In 2015, Dr. Andrew and her family decided to trade city life for a home in Lake Country to be closer to extended family.
In Lake Country, Dr. Andrew joined a small orthopedic clinic and began working with Lake Country’s active community. Helping runners, cyclists, skiers and paddle sport athletes come back from injury has further developed Dr. Andrew’s assessment and treatment skills.
Dr. Andrew has advanced, post-graduate training in osteopathic and other manual medicine techniques including but not limited to: Functional Dry Needling, Myofascial Decompression (cupping), craniosacral therapy, visceral release, myofascial release, muscle energy techniques, joint mobilization, and functional loading techniques. Dr. Andrew has completed advanced certifications in Women’s Health (pre/post natal, pelvic pain, and sexual dysfunction), Active Release Technique (ART) and Crossfit Mobility and Crossfit Endurance.
Dr. Andrew lives in Lake Country with her husband and their two children. She is an active member in the community and enjoys spending time with friends and family, especially cheering on her children. She continues to be an avid runner and enjoys all forms of exercise.
Her extensive knowledge as a therapist combined with her also being an athlete/runner gives her special understanding for those who are anxious to remain as active as possible. As a running coach, I am grateful to have Katie’s expert services in our Lake Country area!
