About Katie Kelly PT, Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist
Katie’s interest in pelvic and core health began as a student in physiotherapy school. Following graduation she completed her first post-graduate pelvic health course in 2011 and has been treating patients internally since this time. Katie has been trained to treat urinary/fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pain associated with pregnancy, post-natal recovery, post-operative rehabilitation and pelvic pain disorders. Katie works with a variety of patients; from children to those in their 90’s. She treats both women and men with pelvic floor and core muscle problems.
With over a decade’s worth of coaching experience she is very comfortable helping athletes return to sport with reduced incontinence, prolapse and with less pain, or to simply help them build a stronger core. She is a strong supporter of injury prevention and encourages people to seek advice before an issue gets worse. Katie is often a guest lecturer for the School of Physiotherapy at Dalhousie University, with a focused knowledge on pregnancy, pelvic health and exercise with regards to weight loss. She is an active contributing author to the Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s Women’s Health Division Newsletter. She has recently been a guest lecturer at NSCC for the physiotherapy and occupational therapy assistant program. Katie has formed a relationship with Mount Allison University’s Sexual Health Laboratory to research chronic pelvic and genital pain conditions. You might also see her in the community talking about Running and the pelvic floor, Running in the post-natal period, or The Role of the pelvic floor during exercise.
Katie received both her BSc and MSc in Physiotherapy from Dalhousie University, is a member of the New Brunswick College of Physiotherapists, the Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s Women’s Health Division, the Canadian Sex Researcher Form and the Canadian Obesity Network.
