About Krista Bellrichard, P.T.A.

I consider myself a generalist. I work with a wide variety of patients from pediatrics, sports injury rehab, surgical rehab, wound care and people with strength and balance issues.

I believe that my patient and I are a team. This fits well into the framework of the Kinisi care model. I expect each of us to play an equal part in the rehabilitation process. I give my patients “tools,” encouragement and guidance, but it is up to them to use what they have learned.

Since most of my family and friends remain in southern Minnesota where I grew up, I wanted to stay nearby, but felt the need to move and start a life with my husband. We enjoy taking walks with our dog, cross country skiing and my passion, the equestrian sport of dressage.

Areas Of Interest:

I have a background in Pilates and integrate this approach into core strengthening and balance training. This approach is helpful for patients with back and neck pain. It is also a good starting point for strengthening of the limbs. I also use guided imagery when explaining and teaching exercises to most of my patients.
