Dr. Kari Smith, PT, DPT

Founder, Owner - Physical Therapist

As an athlete and running enthusiast, Kari combines her sports experience with physical therapy expertise to help her patients achieve peak performance.

Claire Little, PT, MPT

Physical Therapist

Claire's primary goal of treatment is to guide her patients toward independence with self care and symptom management by teaching them the proper tools and exercises. 

“As a marathon runner, I had hit a plateau and was not seeing my race times improve. I needed to find someone to help get me back on track. With Kari’s guidance, we revamped my training and I am seeing amazing gains in performance. Kari helped me understand the importance of strength training and running drills, as well as speed work. We developed a comprehensive training plan and now I am on my way to achieving my Boston Qualifying time.  I wish I had started working with Kari at the start of my marathon career!”
