About Dr. Clark

image

Dr. Courtney Clark graduated from Hardin-Simmons University with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) in 2012. Following grad school Dr. Clark spent the earliest part of her career working at SMCA, and it was there she found her passion for orthopedics. During her time there she helped to organize the PT portion of Seton Medical Center Austin’s Bone and Joint program, dedicated to the total knee and total hip arthroplasty patient.

In late 2014 she transitioned to a full-time outpatient physical therapist position with her primary focus on orthopedics. Dr. Clark is now Certified in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) through the McKenzie Institute. She is also Certified in Dry Needling (DN) through the Spinal Manipulative Institute, and maintains certification in LSVT BIG for Parkinson’s.

She has completed OPTIM’s COMT mentorship as well as recently becoming Board-Certified as an Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist.

Dr. Clark also assists with Patient Care Management III at the University of St. Augustine Residential DPT Program.

She currently works at Ascension Seton Hays McCoy Rehab and Wellness Center, located in Kyle, TX. See below for clinic location and hours.

In her free-time Dr. Clark enjoys spending time with her family, playing with her dogs (Zoey and Clare), cycling, attending concerts or outdoor festivals, trying new restaurants, and watching movies.

Turn Down Your Pain – Michael Curtis, PT

It is important that you, the patient, understand the anatomy and physiology of your injury. We want our patients to take ownership of their recovery and not rely solely on their providers. Do not let the image of your injury discourage or scare you! We want you to be educated on your condition, but there is hope regardless of how bad it may feel. The key is to keep moving through it and let your medical provider coach you along the way.
