Kate Biles, DPT, CLT (Doctor of Physical Therapy, Certified Lymphedema Therapist) has been practicing physical therapy for over 30 years. She graduated from the University of Scranton in 1984 and later earned a doctoral degree from Stockton University in 2010.
After sustaining a serious back injury very early in her career, she struggled with finding pain relief and was very discouraged with mainstream orthopedic and physical therapy care. In her search to regain health and function, she studied Myofascial Release (MFR) with John Barnes, P.T. She was astounded and thrilled by the relief of pain and was soon back to her full healthy athletic self. She then worked with John in his Paoli clinic for 5 years before venturing out into her own practice. Since that time, she has been on the path of holistic healing and integrative medicine, studying and learning from some of the best in their fields. Her overall approach is based on the osteopathic philosophy that all structures in the body need to be mobile to be healthy.
Kate has extensive training in many areas of manual therapy and is considered an expert regarding myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, muscle energy techniques, joint mobilization, strain/ counter-strain and visceral mobilization. She is certified in Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Pediatric Neuro-Developmental Treatment.
