Bridget Kelly is a dance specialized physical therapist working in Charlotte, NC.
She attended Elon University where she began training as a BFA Dance Performance and Choreography major. After many dance-related injuries, she began studying dance biomechanics and injury prevention. This interest leads her to develop an independent major in Dance Science. After completing her BA in Dance Science, Bridget worked as a Director of Dance Medicine and Conditioning in a physical therapy practice. While working closely with physical therapists there, it became clear that physical therapy would be a great career path to help both dancers and non-dancers rehabilitate from injuries and improve their quality of life.
She went on to attend the University of Kentucky, where she received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree. She is now a practicing physical therapist in Charlotte, NC where she specializes in working with dancers, runners, and treating chronic low back and neck pain.
Bridget has also worked as a personal trainer and Pilates instructor. Her dance biomechanics research has been presented internationally. She is also an active member of the International Association for Dance Medicine and Science.
