We are thrilled to announce the newest addition to our Elite Muscle Recovery family, Katelyn Renard, PT, DPT, OCS. With a passion for healing and a commitment to personalized care, Katelyn brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our team.

A Journey Shaped by Resilience
Katelyn’s journey to becoming a physical therapist began with a life-changing experience during her time at Union University. Witnessing the transformative impact of physical therapy on a classmate injured during an EF-4 tornado in 2008, Katelyn knew she had found her calling. Her unwavering dedication to helping others heal and achieve their goals has been the driving force behind her successful career.

A Strong Educational Background
Katelyn’s pursuit of excellence led her to the University of TN at Chattanooga, where she earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2014. Since then, she has continued to enhance her skills and knowledge, completing an Orthopedic Residency and obtaining board certification in Orthopedics in 2016. She is also trained in Dry Needling, a valuable skill that complements her holistic approach to rehabilitation.

An Inspirational Career
With over 9 years of experience in an outpatient orthopedic physical therapy setting, Katelyn has not only treated a diverse caseload of patients but has also taken on various roles, including clinic director, clinical instructor, mentor, and senior therapist. However, her true passion lies in working directly with her patients, helping them recover and achieve their individual goals.

Personalized Care and Empowerment
At Elite Muscle Recovery, Katelyn is committed to providing individualized treatment to each unique patient. She firmly believes in empowering her patients with knowledge about the benefits of conservative care and the body’s natural ability to heal and grow stronger. Her caring and compassionate approach to treatment reflects her core belief in treating patients the way she would want to be treated.

A Devoted Family Woman
Outside the clinic, Katelyn is a loving wife to her husband, Robinson, and a doting mother to two beautiful sons, ages 4 and 2. Her love for family extends to her community, as she actively participates in her church and cherishes every moment spent with her loved ones.

A Life of Balance and Joy
Katelyn’s commitment to wellness and balance is evident in her hobbies. She enjoys hiking, reading, journaling at a local tea shop, hand lettering, creating natural household and cleaning products, and exploring ways to make healthier food choices. Her diverse interests reflect her holistic approach to life and health.

We’re excited to inform you of Katelyn’s availability to better accommodate your needs. She will now be available for appointments on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, as well as on Mondays and Thursdays from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM. This expanded schedule is designed to provide you with more options to receive the exceptional care that Katelyn is known for.

Kind regards,
