Doctor Carly Catanese earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Cleveland State University in 2011. Prior to that she worked in Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation as an Exercise Physiologist, after earning her Master of Education in Exercise Science from Cleveland State University in 2007. She completed her Master's thesis on the Effect of External Counterpulsation (ECP) on Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) in Long Distance Runners. She worked for the Cleveland Clinic from 2008 to 2016 with the majority of years spent working at Rehabilitation and Sports Therapy, specializing in outpatient orthopedics, sports, and aquatic therapy. In 2015, she earned her Doctorate in Manual Therapy from the Ola Grimsby Institute. She came to Washington State in 2016 as a travel physical therapist. Having had the opportunity to work in Seattle, Carly appreciated the active, motivated population, who gravitated toward a more holistic treatment approach. She sees movement as medicine. Her patients will tell you that she has a very thorough approach, assessing the body as a whole, and critically analyzes both subjective and objective measurements to help her patients meet and exceed their goals.
