Meet Karen Procino, Physical Therapist


Karen is a physical therapist with 15 years experience.  She has worked in a variety of settings, giving her a diverse background and comprehensive understanding of the demands of a physical therapist.

She graduated from Daemen College in Buffalo, New York in 1994 and moved to Salt Lake City that same winter (and yes, she moved here to ski). She worked at a Skilled Nursing Facility along with doing home health care before she changed paths and started work at St. Mark’s Hospital. Here she spent several years working on the surgical and medical floors as well as the TCC. In 2004 she moved to IHC’s Outpatient Neuro Rehabilition clinic in Salt Lake where she worked with patients with various neurological diagnosis including CVA (stroke), Multiple Sclerosis, balance disorders, and patients needing general conditioning. She focused on fall prevention and high level functional activities from the young to the geriatric population.

She came to Alpine Sports Medicine in 2006 to further her experience and career as a physical therapist in the

orthopedic setting. Here she works with patients of all ages to maximize their safe and successful return to sport, work, life and health. She also continues to work with patients with neurologic rehabilitation needs.

 

She is married with 2 boys and moved to Park City in 2002 for the outdoor lifestyle and quality of life.  You’ll probably see her out on the trails of Round Valley  this summer running.
