Kevin Plattner, DPT


Kevin earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at UIC in 2018. His treatment approach is rooted in evidence, and follows a three-part trajectory. It emphasizes modifying movements to get out of pain. Then growing the repertoire of patterns so there are more options for how to move. And finally, getting stronger to re-acclimate to the load demands of your activity.

Kevin draws from his background with holistic movement practices including yoga and t'ai chi. His manual therapy approach includes soft tissue treatment grounded in his extensive studies of Thai bodywork, and joint mobilization strategies. He is a strong believer in the power of resistance-based exercise. Movement optimism is foundational to his treatment strategy.

He enjoys riding his bicycle, bouldering, gardening, playing music, baking, and playing with his young children.
