Kendall Wisehart, DPT, ATC
Kendall comes to Movement Systems Physical Therapy and the Pacific Northwest from Champaign, Illinois. He earned his undergraduate degree in Athletic Training at Purdue University (W. Lafayette, IN) and graduate degree in Physical Therapy at Washington University in St. Louis. During his time at Purdue, Kendall worked with their Division-I Football, Men’s and Women’s Tennis and Men’s Basketball teams. In addition to collegiate athletics, he has spent time with high school athletic programs and the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
While at Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL), Kendall studied the Movement System Impairment (MSI) syndromes approach as taught by Shirley Sahrmann, PT, PhD, FAPTA. In addition to studying MSI while at WUSTL, Kendall gained an interest in the Postural Restoration Institute (PRI) and has taken several courses for the treatment of acute and chronic pain as well as movement dysfunction in the spine, pelvis and pelvic floor, and extremities. Kendall is constantly looking for new education opportunities and most recently has been interested in Therapeutic Neuroscience Education, modern pain science and helping his patients better understand their pain.
Kendall is excited to be a part of Movement Systems Physical Therapy team and focuses his treatment approach towards education, empowering his patients to take control of their lives and returning to an active lifestyle.
Kendall strives to create a non-threatening environment where patients can rationalize their pain perceptions, create dynamic movement goals and be inspired to make lifelong change. He understands the N=1 principle, meaning that each patient is unique and requires a personalized and in depth examination.
Outside of the clinic, Kendall spends his time exploring Seattle and hiking through the Pacific Northwest.
