Karli Stager, PT, DPT joins Mount Nittany Physician Group Fit for Play.
“My husband and I moved from Baltimore in April,” said Stager. “I knew that Mount Nittany Health had a great reputation and knew it was a great place to work.”
Karli holds a Bachelor of Science and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from Ithaca College. Her most recent physical therapy practice was at the Kennedy Krieger Institute’s International Center for Spinal Cord Injury.
In her physical therapy practice, Karli emphasizes how important it is to go to work with a smile on her face and to get her patients laughing.
“Even though they are going through hard times, it helps to remind them that everything will be okay and that they are in good hands,” said Karli. “I want to help them get back to what they do, be happy again, and be pain-free.”
Karli intends to pursue projects involving neurology and neurological disorders. This will certainly be possible in Mount Nittany’s Fit for Play practice. Physical therapy in the Fit for Play program is an integral part of the holistic care team approach. The main goal is to help develop, maintain and restore maximum body movement and physical function so patients can continue to be successful in activities at home, work, and in their community.
Skilled therapists like Karli, in conjunction with a primary care provider and other care team members, can identify goals and develop a comprehensive, individualized plan of care.
Fit for Play has successfully helped thousands of patients reduce pain, improve function and prevent injury. If you have questions about physical therapy options, please talk to your primary care provider about Mount Nittany Health Fit for Play.
