Katie Slinger, DPT, is a physical therapist for On-Site Solutions Physical Therapy. She takes care of clients in Minnesota, both on-site and virtually. She first got interested in physical therapy while attending her mom’s PT sessions after a knee injury. She fell in love with anatomy and learning how the body worked, leading her to PT school at the Mayo School of Health Sciences. Prior to On-Site Solutions, she had worked with patients with chronic pain. Many of these patients had injuries and conditions that, with the proper education and training, could have been prevented, keeping it from becoming a lifelong struggle. This was what drew her to On-Site, our emphasis on prevention and getting people back to life as it was prior to the injury as soon as possible. Her favorite things about being a physical therapist is the variety of human conditions and learning about them and, if a client is injured, seeing them get back to full recovery. The best piece of advice she has ever received is “...that failure is a part of success.” She credits her ability to try new things and learn from those results on this advice. If her life were to be made into a movie, she would want Jennifer Lawrence to play her.
