Katie Mitchell



Katie grew up in Clinton, Utah where she was involved in many sports, primarily softball, gymnastics and cheerleading. She attended Utah State University, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science with a minor in Psychology. At USU, Katie was injured as a collegiate athlete which required several weeks of physical therapy. During her recovery, Katie recognized a passion for rehabilitative therapy and enjoyed the ideology of healing the whole body. During this time, she met her incredible husband and they relocated to Texas wherein she earned a degree from Lone Star College – Montgomery as a Physical Therapy Assistant. She was an active member of the Texas Physical Therapy Association and also used her skills at Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, now recognized as The Ironman Institute, in a wide variety of orthopedics. Another relocation to Fargo, North Dakota allowed Katie to broaden her area of expertise in acute care, spine rehabilitation and neurological disorders. Her family began a new adventure in Burley, Idaho in 2018 and she is excited to continue her passion for manual therapy and orthopedics to increase her patient’s quality of life. Katie has 3 wonderful boys who love to run, jump and play (very loudly) and a devoted husband that shares her passion of human movement. As a family, they enjoy playing on the Snake River, spending time in the mountains and nature, throwing a ball, or just enjoying a good movie. Katie is also an avid photographer and enjoys music by playing the violin or piano.

What they are saying about Katie Mitchell!

The folks at Wright Physical Therapy are some of the best people you’d ever want to meet! It’s nothing less than amazing how much better I feel after just a week of therapy. These folks are wonderful and I can’t thank them enough for all the exercising, massages, and guidance I’ve received from them. My back is feeling so much better and stronger. A special ‘thank you’ to Natalie for making me feel so welcome and explaining how this works. And Shane, Katie and Yazmin are just the greatest therapists around! I come from a much larger city that really doesn’t take the time that these folks take with their patients and I’m so appreciative that they are now in my life. Teaching me what to do when I feel pain and spasms so that I can help myself is a huge plus. And it’s not a bad thing to lose a little weight while I’m here; 9 1/2 lbs in 10 days is pretty fantastic to me! Words just can’t express enough the great upbeat feeling they pass onto me each day of therapy. Thanks to you all and I hope your company grows and grows as I know it will because you actually help people! Here’s to a great 2021!
