Kimberly Salvato, DPT

Whiting Physical Therapist

Kimberly Salvato received her Bachelor’s of Science in Biology and minor in Behavioral Neuroscience at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey in 2012. Following the completion of her undergraduate degree, Kimberly attended graduate school at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia and received her Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2015. As a student, Kimberly received extensive training treating patients post-stroke in an acute setting and patient post-surgical in an outpatient orthopedic setting. Kimberly then spent four months on her last affiliation in orthopedics and sports medicine, where she studied under renowned sports physical therapists, athletic trainers, and strength and conditions specialists. Kimberly learned valuable knowledge working with high school and college athletes, predominately with ACL and meniscal injuries.

Kimberly believes in using evidenced based practice (EBP) in order to provide high-quality care to her patients. She has even participated in a group research project examining the efficacy of Thera-Band elastic bands versus free weights when performing external rotation of the shoulder, which she hopes will become published.

Kimberly’s approach to treatment utilizes various techniques she has learned including: Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM), Kinesio Taping Method, and manual therapy techniques including Maitland, Mulligan, and McKenzie approaches.
