Karen is amazing! She got to the root of my pain in the first session”

Karen Turner-Schlegel, PT, DPT, MTC has been committed to empowering her clients to live their lives to the fullest for over 20 years. Dr. Karen Turner-Schlegel believes in a Pilates-based approach to Physical Therapy that’s results driven to help you overcome pain and get your life back! Unlike other physical therapy services, clients receive every session with the full attention of a Doctor of Physical Therapy.

Karen is dedicated to your success!

  • Karen meets you where you are and safely progresses you at each session
  • Every client is different and so is their treatment plan – a true customized program
  • Karen walks her talk and practices what she preaches so she can give 110% to each client

Always mindful that she is treating the whole person, not just the injury, Karen does so with integrity and compassion.

Karen has had the privilege to complete advanced studies in the Integrated Systems Model with Diane Lee and her Associates.  It is an honor to study with Diane as she has been very instrumental in our Physical Therapy industry, providing cutting-edge information and treatments for the Thorax, Lumbar Spine and Pelvis (The ‘core’ of the body).  Diane is a well-respected author of several books and has experienced much success with her Integrated Systems Model which incorporates the whole body whenever treating patients.

Everything ultimately connects to the core!  Which is why treating the underlying problem and not merely the symptom is fundamental in this Integrated Systems Model approach.  Every patient is different and therefore every treatment is different, but where do we start? The Integrated System Model provides a way for evaluating the break down or failed load in the body and finding the best place to start treatment.

Stop chasing your pain and let Karen help you get to the root of the problem.

Karen’s learning never stops.  She continues to take advanced studies to refine her skills and stay up with the latest information.  Currently, Karen is working to complete courses in neural and visceral mobilizations which are areas of the body that often times get overlooked — and when treated, clients can make significant progress!
