Kristine Godsil is a Doctor of Physical Therapy practicing in sports, general orthopedics, pediatrics, and pelvic health. She works at Activcore in Denver, Colorado, located just one mile from the popular Cherry Creek Shopping District.

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.

Diastasis Recti Abdominis (DRA): Part 1, Diagnosis

Whether you’re new to motherhood or a seasoned Mom, I would like you to envision a scenario. You’ve just had your little one and you’re at home navigating through mommahood. As your baby is growing, your body is healing. You’re adjusting to a new life balance and trying to sleep whenever you get a free moment. And to top it off, there’s doming on your core every time you get out of bed. Does this sound familiar?

Diastasis Recti Abdominis (DRA): Part 2, Evaluation

Now that we have a better understanding of what a Diastasis Recti Abdominis (DRA) is, let’s talk about what physical therapy can do for you. Physical therapy is a conservative treatment option, because there is no surgery involved and you allow the body to heal itself with specific exercises. Diastasis Recti are diagnosed measuring how many cm or mm of separation there is on the linea alba (i.e. the midline of your six-pack muscle).

Why Kegels Don’t Always Fix Stress Incontinence

Stress incontinence is when urine leaks while performing an action or activity. This can happen for many different reasons and here’s a hint: it’s not always weakness! There are three main factors that can be happening at the pelvic floor to cause stress incontinence: weakness, increased tone, or lack of coordination. Weakness can result after any injury or trauma to the pelvic floor, or just over time from dysfunctional movement patterns. If there is a lack of strength at the pelvic floor, that means there is not enough tension to combat pressures...

One of your professionals, Dr. Kristine Godsil, did a fantastic job with me. She listened carefully and asked lots of questions to ensure she understood the nature of my injury / issue. Then she was able to recommend exercises that helped me recover. Thank you so much Kristine!

I pulled an intercostal muscle and had been in pain for nearly a week. I had to sleep sitting in a recliner. Dr. Kristine Godsil pinpointed and worked out the muscle. I felt immediate relief after suffering for days. I was astounded that she completely fixed the problem and I had no further issues with it! I highly recommend her.

I was referred by a physician to Activcore. I have been working on strengthening my pelvic floor (after having two children) with Dr. Kristine Godsil. She has been consistently thorough, respectful, flexible and has great bedside manner. Highly recommend. The courteous and helpful staff front desk staff along with the flexible scheduling are a huge bonus.


Emily G.

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.
