Dr. Kristen Gerst, PT, DPT, OCS, CKTP

Kristen received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Richmond in 2007.  Following college, she continued her education at New York University, where she graduated with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in August of 2011.  In 2015, she achieved the distinction of being certified as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS).  Kristen has been working at RPT since graduation from NYU and specializes in treating orthopedic and sports related injuries.  In order for patients to achieve success and reach their full functional potential, Kristen believes in combining manual therapy with therapeutic exercise.  Throughout treatments, she understands the importance of explaining the recovery process and teaching patients how to prevent re-injury.
