Here to Help
Welcome! My name is Kristen Batista, PT, DPT. I graduated from Northeastern University with a bachelor's degree in rehabilitation science and a doctorate in physical therapy in 2008. For more than a decade, I have been treating sports-related and orthopedic injuries. I have a unique specialty and love for treating dancers, as prior to physical therapy I was a professional ballet dancer with the Boston Ballet Company. My love and depth of knowledge for the body and movement is what drives me.
When I was 14, I experienced a devastating ACL injury, and was introduced to physical therapy firsthand. During that time, I never thought that I would walk, let alone dance again. After months of rehab I was able to save myself from having surgery but also found a new passion outside of dance - PT! I knew that after a career dancing what I wanted to do was help people and get them back to what they love doing and be pain-free!
