Meet Kathleen Doehla

Kathleen Doehla, PT DPT, is a Vermont-licensed physical therapist. She has 25 years of experience in sports medicine and orthopedics. Her three children, who are growing up quickly, were the inspiration for starting a home-based sports medicine and outpatient orthopedic clinic in 2012, and she is very thankful for her family’s love and support of the practice. They continue to be the inspiration for the mind-body-spirit-lifestyle approach advocated at Points North Sports & Regenerative PT, which guides clients toward balance, healing, and achieving the goal of living a life filled with meaning and purpose, as fully as possible.

Kathleen brings to her practice a strong exercise and sports training background, advanced manual therapy training, a passion for biomechanics and neuroscience, and an understanding of the challenges of balancing the demands of training with a busy life, from amateur to elite levels. She graduated with honors from Hamilton College, received her Master of Science degree in physical therapy from Virginia Commonwealth University, and her doctorate from Northeastern University. Kathleen received intensive manual therapy training in spinal and joint mobilization techniques and myofascial release techniques through the Center for Integrative Manual Therapy and the Upledger Institute. As a former high school and college athlete and 35 years of racing experience, she incorporates her lifelong background and love of movement, sports, and training into her practice. She has had the honor of working with clients from all walks of life, from those who have never exercised before and would like to start a program, to high school, college, and professional athletes and sports teams. Kathleen has multiple Functional Movement Training certifications, a Kinesiotaping International Certification, and an American Institute of Medical Laser Applications certification.

Kathleen is a former XTERRA triathlete and U.S. Masters swimmer. She currently enjoys trail running, mountain biking, weightlifting, and skiing, and most of all loves spending time with her family. She also knows how challenging it can be to prioritize your health and maintain a healthy lifestyle when faced with the demands of a job and a family. A big focus of her practice is helping clients find that path to wellness and balance, using a brain-based approach she developed from her neuroplasticity research as part of her doctoral research project.
