Katie Severeid earned her doctorate in physical therapy at the University of Puget Sound in 2007. She has experience in both acute care and outpatient orthopedics. She is skilled in the McKenzie Method® of manual therapy and myofascial release. One of her specialties is rehabilitation for injured runners to help them reach their running goals. Her certification as a running coach helps her customize training for each athlete while helping them avoid injury.
Katie has also focused on addressing unique needs of patients with swelling and lymph issues. In 2010 she became a Certified Lymphedema Therapist through the Klose Training Lymphedema Certification program. In May of 2018, Katie went on to receive the certification through the Lymphology Association of North America (LANA). Currently, she is the only therapist in Yamhill County accepting new patients. Katie helps those suffering from the side effects of cancer treatments, diabetes, vascular insufficiencies and other swelling disorders.
Another of Katie's specialties is Functional Manual Therapy®. She uses manual therapy techniques in combination with movement patterns and activity to treat the joint or area affected. Katie believes in taking a holistic view of each individual's treatment. Improving the interaction between structure, motor control and functional capacity can raise a person's level of activity and enhance their quality of life.
Born and raised on a farm in Newberg, Katie has deep roots in Yamhill County. As a therapist, she enjoys meeting and working with people from a variety of backgrounds and abilities. Her goal is to help each person reach their greatest potential and give back to the community she grew up in.
