Kate Pratt, PT, DPT
Dr. Kate Pratt grew up in South Glens Falls, NY, and earned her doctorate in physical therapy from Sage Graduate School in 2010. She has been practicing in orthopedics since graduating and has had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of patients who have musculoskeletal diagnoses. Kate’s interest in orthopedics began with her own experience as a high school athlete with knee injuries. She has completed continuing education coursework in Kinesio Taping, evaluation and treatment of shoulder pathologies, and the McKenzie method of Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy (MDT), and has participated in several community events to include a Senior Fitness health fair at the Queensbury YMCA, the Adirondack Sports and Fitness Expo in Saratoga, and presentations to local sports teams regarding proper stretching techniques and dynamic warm ups.
Kate has a particular interest in helping her patients rehabilitate athletic and/or recreational injuries and return to their activity of choice. She knows that every person and injury is different and approaches each case as such, creating customized treatment plans in order to maximize functional gains and achieve optimal therapeutic benefits. Outside the clinic, Kate enjoys spending time with her husband, Greg, her son, Vance, her step children Ally and Ethan, and the family pets. She also enjoys playing ice hockey with her team, the Saratoga Storm.
