Karinda Polk, PT, DPT, is a doctor of physical therapy. While in college, she was inspired to become a physical therapist when she heard a therapist speak about the profession. She knew in that moment she wanted to be able to share similar stories of how she helped others to regain independence of their life and return to activities they love.
“I have found I can diagnose patients so much easier by simply listening. I will hear out each patient and treat to the best of my ability. When I am unfamiliar about a condition or not seeing the improvement I anticipate, I will search for answers so they will receive the best care,” Karinda said. “Each of my patients can rest assured that I will be their No. 1 advocate and cheerleader to help them meet their functional goals.”
Karinda is currently working on her obstetrics certification due to her new-found passion for women's health physical therapy.
"I have a fascination with the capabilities of the female body and became passionate about pursuing my obstetric PT after carrying and birthing my baby girl," Karinda said. "My desire is to educate every woman I treat on how to protect her body during the changes that arise during pregnancy and assist her with achieving her birth desires."
