Kristine Godsil is a Doctor of Physical Therapy practicing in sports, general orthopedics, pediatrics, and pelvic health. She works at Activcore in Castle Rock, CO (inside Optimal Health Chiropractic), located in between Denver and Colorado Springs.
Introduced to physical therapy at a young age, Kristine has been through physical therapy herself since 10 years of age due to sports injuries. However, her biggest inspiration for pursuing physical therapy is her cousin. He has been through physical therapy his whole life due to muscular dystrophy. Her cousin was told by age 12 that he would be wheelchair bound, and he is still walking in his late 20’s. She finds inspiration through his hard work and determination.
Kristine graduated from Saint Louis University in Health Sciences, and from Rockhurst University with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy. She has advanced post-graduate training in taping, strength & conditioning (CSCS), pelvic floor, and trigger point dry needling.
Kristine is also a pelvic floor specialist for all genders and ages. She was introduced to the pelvic floor while in physical therapy school. It was taught that the pelvic floor is the only subset of muscles in the body that don’t get immediate rehab after any injury or trauma. That seemed crazy! If you’ve ever been told things like “well you’re pregnant,” and “it’s totally normal,” you could benefit from a pelvic floor physical therapist. Pelvic floor dysfunction is normal to experience but not normal to live with, it can affect men & women. Pelvic floor diagnoses for adults can look like urinary/fecal incontinence, pain with intercourse, constipation, erectile dysfunction, and abdominal pain.
Kristine has worked with kids for the last 12 years in various jobs such as daycare provider, nanny, & dance teacher. It only seemed natural she transitioned this into her professional career. She has worked with children in a hospital, home health, and outpatient setting seeing a wide variety of pediatric orthopedic and neuromuscular cases. She also treats pediatric pelvic floor, which can look like bed wetting, constipation, and day-time incontinence.
Kristine loves being able to give back to her community by giving her patient’s tips and tricks to allow for optimal movement and mobility. She is originally from Nebraska and made Colorado her home after completing her graduate degree. During her free time, she enjoys hiking, camping, yoga, weight training, art, and seeing live music.
I have been a regular patient of Dr. Kristine Godsil for the last three years. While running Ultramarathons, playing competitive Ice Hockey, and jumping out of planes has taken its toll on my body, I can always rely on Kristine to get me back to tip top shape and ready for the next challenge. Kristine has routinely prescribed corrective exercises and performed both manual and dry needling therapy. Dr. Godsil is unique to other physical therapists as she continues to provide the right education in order to prevent the same injury twice. I highly recommend Dr. Godsil to competitive athletes, military personnel, and all others looking to optimize their athletic performance.
