“I do not believe that there is one cookie-cutter approach that can be applied to all of my patients. Listening to their fears, concerns, and goals is what ultimately guides my treatment plan, to ensure that I am helping to make a meaningful change in their life.”
Kellie Dushner is originally from Georgia, but spent most of her adolescent years in Tampa, Florida. She completed her Bachelor’s in Exercise Science at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte, and went on to complete her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Western Carolina University.
Kellie specializes in evaluating and treating men and women with pelvic floor dysfunction including urinary, bowel and sexual dysfunction, as well as pelvic pain. Kellie’s passion for this population led her to seek advanced training within this specialty, and she has completed coursework through the American Physical Therapy Association’s Section on Women’s Health both in pelvic floor dysfunction as well as perinatal health.
Although Kellie’s passion lies within pelvic health, she is experienced in treating orthopedic dysfunction including back/neck pain and joint replacements as well as vestibular/dizziness disorders and balance dysfunction. Kellie also has past experience treating neurologic pediatric conditions, and volunteered with the MDA summer camp to assist children with muscular dystrophy.
Outside of her work as a PT, Kellie lives with her husband Mike and her three dogs (Oscar, Roxie, and Slash). When weather permits, she enjoys being outdoors as much as possible, and takes frequent walks with her husband. She also enjoys running, weight lifting, spin, and Pilates.
