Cathy Kramer PT, DPT, CMTPT, PHC
Neuromuscular and Pelvic Health Specialist
STOTT PILATES Trained Instructor
Cathy received a BA in Counseling Psychology with a minor in Holistic Health in 1994 from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL. In 1999, she completed a Master’s degree in physical therapy from the Medical College of GA. In 2020, she decided to advance her professional knowledge of pelvic health and completed her post-professional doctorate degree with an advanced pelvic health focus from Evidence in Motion in 2022. She is certified in both Dry Needling and Pelvic Health. She has extensive training in fascial and visceral manipulation from STECCO Fascial Manipulation & Barral Institute.
Upon receiving her master’s from MCG, she began working at The Shepherd Center in Atlanta, GA, where she worked full time until 2017. During her time at Shepherd, she worked with patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), and various other neuromuscular conditions. In 2017 Cathy entered the private practice world, focusing her clinical efforts on pelvic health. She has attended many conferences and continuing education courses regarding the treatment of conditions such as chronic pelvic pain, interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome, and age-related changes affecting bowel and bladder functioning.
With her broad range of experience across a spectrum of challenging patient needs, she has many “tools in the toolbox” to help clients achieve their best results. Cathy’s primary goal in treating her patients is to look at the whole person-psychologically, personally, nutritionally, and physically. She is interested in how all of the parts of the body interact with each other vs. treated segmented body parts in isolation. When Cathy is not treating her patients, she enjoys spending time with her husband, 3 children, and 3 dogs. Her hobbies include painting furniture, attending Pilates classes, and visiting the beach as often as possible.
