Schroth Method Therapist
Pelvic Health Therapist
Katalin Kapoor is an integral part of the Armonk PT team. Katalin is an exceptionally experienced Physical Therapist with extensive experience in treating the difficult diagnosis of scoliosis and complex patients with pelvic floor dysfunction.
Katalin is a native of Hungary, where she earned her Physical Therapy degree and began her work as a physical therapist. “I have always been fascinated with the fantastic machine that is the human body!” Katalin has been practicing in the US for the last 16 years and has over 20 years of experience in orthopedics. Katalin has dual specialization, Schroth method therapy and Pelvic health therapy.
She specializes in the Schroth method therapy, treating scoliosis, kyphosis, and other postural dysfunctions. Katalin pursued specialized training in scoliosis in Hungary, learning the original, German Schroth technique by Katharina Schroth. She later became a BSPTS (Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School) certified Schroth therapist in the US. She also completed the SEAS (Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis) Italian School for scoliosis treatment. Katalin continues to broaden her knowledge in order to better assist her patients and is learning the French Lyon method for scoliosis treatment as well as ways to adapt yoga and Pilates practices for those with scoliosis and other postural dysfunctions.
Katalin also specializes in treating complex pelvic floor diagnoses. As a mom of three girls, going through labor and having multiple C-sections made Katalin realize early in her career, how crucial pelvic health is. These personal experiences and the needs of her patients inspired her to further specialize as a pelvic floor therapist. Katalin was drawn to pelvic health at the very start of her career and worked mostly with prenatal and postpartum patients. Katalin has completed her specialized pelvic floor rehabilitation training through the Hermann & Wallace Pelvic Rehab Institute. She has extensive training in manual therapy through the Foundation for Holistic Medicine, Hungary. She continues to pursue advanced manual therapy training, including myofascial and visceral mobilization, through Hermann & Wallace Rehab Institute.
Working with all age groups, Katalin came to recognize the strong connections between posture, breathing, and pelvic muscles, and the importance of treating the whole body, not just a body part. Her patients with low back pain or hip pain often mention that they also have urinary incontinence, pain with sexual intercourse, or bowel dysfunction. Pelvic dysfunction can be challenging to discuss, yet pelvic floor health is so essential to our well-being.
Katalin has found her true calling and she is fully committed to improving the quality of life for all. She fundamentally believes in listening and working with her patients, educating them, and helping them meet their goals so they can fully enjoy and return to the activities they love.
In her free time, Katalin enjoys traveling, learning about other cultures, hiking, playing pickleball – her newfound hobby, and spending time with her beautiful family!
