Dr. Kaitlyn "Katie" Colgan grew up in New Hyde Park, NY, where she was an avid soccer, lacrosse and track athlete. Through rehabilitation from these sports, she developed a passion for physical therapy and pursued a Rehabilitation Science degree with a certificate in Pathokinesiology from the University of Pittsburgh. She continued her graduate schooling at Pitt as well, completing her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2020.
During her graduate study, Katie maintained close contact with athletic rehabilitation by serving as a member of an interprofessional team treating the varsity athletes at St. Vincent College, in addition to working with athletes of all levels at multiple sports medicine clinics within the Pittsburgh area. Her clinical passions lie mainly with biomechanical and running analysis, lower extremity injury management and sports-related concussion. Katie’s commitment to her patients and the profession are illustrated by her development of an Athlete Screening Program which served to provide musculoskeletal screening to local community athletes to reduce injury and enhance performance. She also serves as a member of the Communications Committee of the American Academy of Sports Physical Therapy, organizing networking events for members at national conferences. Outside of her scholastic pursuits, she is an avid fan of New York sports teams.
