karen vandersypen PT, DPT, PCS
Karen is a 1989 graduate of the Physical Therapy program at Louisiana State University-Health Sciences Center, and she obtained her Doctor of Physical Therapy from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professionals in 2008. She is Board Certified as a Pediatric Clinical Specialist (PCS) through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties since 1994. Karen is an expert in developmental screening and infant evaluation. She has worked at Willis Knighton Health System for 23 years and continues with developmental intervention in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), the neonatal multi-discipline follow up clinics and in the skilled pediatric outpatient clinic. Karen treats infants and young children with plagiocephaly, torticollis, cerebral palsy, developmental delay, abnormal gait, and clumsy child syndrome. Her assessments clarify whether or not an infant or child’s delay or disability exists. This is vitally important early on, when early intervention has excellent results. We are proud to have Karen as part of our team at Wheat Physical Therapy. She is certainly an asset to this community!
