Katie Gwyn PT, DPT, Cert. MDT, FAAOMPT
Katie was born in Bedford, England and lived in several countries before settling in Austin, Texas. She graduated from Rice University with a BA in Kinesiology. While at Rice, she was a varsity member of the cross country and track teams during a time when they won 8 conference championships. Katie earned her Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy and her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Texas Woman’s University. Katie received her certification in the McKenzie method of mechanical diagnosis and therapy in 2013 and her Fellowship in Orthopaedic Manual Therapy in 2015.
In 2020, Katie pursued further education in pelvic floor physical therapy. As an athlete, her own postpartum journey was confusing and difficult. She specifically hopes to offer mothers the empowerment and expertise they need to address the physical challenges of postpartum life with clarity, boldness and radical candor. She believes people should not suffer silently with concerns about diastasis recti, pelvic pain or incontinence and rejects the notion that these are just normal byproducts of the aging process.
Katie enjoys working with a diverse patient population from active adults to professional athletes across a multitude of sports. She continues to pursue her love of athleticism with running, swimming and strength training. Her current goal is to complete the 6 marathon majors with 3 down, 3 to go.
