“I treat my clients like they are my family — and I am their biggest cheerleader.”
Kayla Michalik, PT, DPT, is a physical therapist based in Naples who enjoys working with athletes, among other populations, such as outpatient orthopedics. She works with clients of all levels and age ranges, including young and professional athletes in sports ranging from hockey, football, volleyball, baseball, dance, and cheerleading.
As a physical therapist, Kayla values getting to know her clients past their injury, listening to what their goals and interests are so that she can tailor a program that fits their needs while also reaching their goals and beyond. It is important to Kayla to build a trusting relationship with her clients built around education; she is a firm believer that exercise is medicine and that physical therapy is not a one size fits all approach.
Kayla was previously involved in the Tampa Bay community helping a lot with Feeding Tampa Bay and Impact Academy, where she helped promote and educate students, teachers, and parents about the importance of physical activity. In her off time, Kayla enjoys practicing Pilates, watching Michigan football, and hanging out at the beach.
