Courteney J. Bealko PT, Cert. MDT, CSCS
Courteney Bealko has been practicing physical therapy in the field of outpatient orthopedics and sports medicine since 1998. She consistently receives rave reviews from her patients for her outstanding ability to quickly identify the source of their discomfort and then patiently educate and support them to recovery. Her special areas of interest include: running analysis, complex spinal care and overhead sports treatment and rehabilitation. Courteney has additional credentials in spinal care (McKenzie diagnostic therapist) and fitness training (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist).
Courteney’s approach to care is dynamic and hands on, with the goal of getting each patient motivated to be the key player in their own treatment plan. “I want each patient to feel as though they are receiving the best care. I spend their full appointment with them instead of handing treatment over to an assistant or aide.”
Courteney received her Bachelor’s of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Vermont.
Outside of the office, Courteney is a parent of 2 young children whom she loves spending time with and learning from. In addition to her work as a PT, Courteney has run 7 marathons, taught skiing at Crystal Mountain for 10 years and has been a personal trainer. She loves seeing people reach for and accomplish their goals. Although she is a travel enthusiast and loves to explore new cities and cultures, Courteney always makes time for her family and friends — they truly are the support behind her many endeavors.
