Kari Van Schyndel graduated from the University of Washington with a Masters in Physical Therapy in 2003. She has worked in outpatient physical therapy clinics since that time, specializing in sports medicine and vestibular rehabilitation.
After purchasing a bike and experiencing pain while commuting to and from work, she decided to pursue training and additional coursework in bike fitting. For the past 8 years, she has helped individuals return to biking pain-free by providing recommendations based on a comprehensive “bike fit” evaluation.
Since moving to Minnesota, she joined the IMPACT Physical Medicine and Aquatic Center as a physical therapist in the fall of 2013 and has been treating patients in the pool and on land since that time. She enjoys helping individuals return to their prior lifestyle and activities.
