Kasia Kilijanek, Physical Therapist

We are thrilled to announce the addition of Kasia Kilijanek DPT OCS to our Old Mill team starting in early August. Kasia is coming to us from Children’s Hospital Colorado in Denver, where she specializes in adolescent sports rehabilitation with a strong emphasis in acrobatic athletes including gymnasts, cheerleaders and tumblers. She’s board certified in orthopedics and is a sought after presenter on the orthopedic rehab of gymnasts and other acrobatic athletes. While Children’s has been a great fit for her, she’s looking to expand to work with adults as well and was drawn to our patient-centered care model and our Old Mill location. 

BACKGROUND AND EDUCATION

Originally from Colorado, Kasia obtained her undergraduate degree in Movement Science from the University of Winona in Minnesota, then quickly hurried back to Colorado. She then graduated from the University of Colorado in 2016 with her doctorate in physical therapy, obtaining her Orthopedic Certification Specialty in 2019. She has worked in orthopedics since graduation but has specialized in treating adolescent athletes for four years.

Interests

Kasia enjoys working with athletes of all ages, in every sport, but particularly excels at treating gymnasts, cheerleaders, and other acrobatic athletes. Kasia was a competitive gymnast herself for over 11 years and coached recreational to team level gymnasts for 14 years. She also has extensive experience working with patients who have undergone ACL, ALL, or MPFL reconstruction, shoulder surgery, operative and nonoperative osteochondritis dissecans, growth plate injuries (Gymnasts wrist, Sever’s, Osgood-Schlatter’s, etc.), overuse sports injuries, ankle sprains, Achilles tendinopathy or surgery, hip surgeries, muscular back pain, and spondylolysis.
