Emily Burghardt, PT, DPT

Emily believes as a clinician that one can never stop learning. She began continuing education classes focused on manual techniques for outpatient orthopedics. She is certified with Graston Technique®  and has taken courses with the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy and the Institute of Physical Art.

Her treatment style is focused on each person individually. Through education and open discussions she creates a treatment plan that is patient centered.  She works to correct movement patterns through manual techniques and specific strengthening to allow for optimal function with all daily activities and sport-specific activities.

Emily was born and raised in Western New York and then traveled to the University of Vermont where she received her Bachelors of Science in Exercise and Movement Science and her Doctorate of Physical Therapy.

While in Vermont she fell in love with skiing, hiking, and rock climbing.  This love of the outdoors drove her all the way to the Pacific Northwest where she began her career as a Physical Therapist in the Greater Seattle area in 2017.

When she is not practicing Physical Therapy you can find her on top of a mountain – rain, snow or sunshine.

“Love this place and these ladies! I was a patient of Kelcy and Shana’s back when they worked in Ballard, and they helped me tremendously with my low back issues.

Since then I’ve screwed up my knee (and it turns out my hip) and they are putting me back on the road to recovery. I will be running again soon! Pros: Parking lot, friendly sta, hour appointments.Cons: I have to drive here or ride my bike from Ballard.”
