Dr. Karyn Staples, PT, PhD, NCPT is a Physical Therapist and Pilates Certified Teacher with over 20 years of clinical and teaching experience. Dr. Staples founded ProHealth Physical Therapy and Pilates Studio in 2005 and leads her team of Physical Therapists, Pilates Instructors, and office staff in effective research-based therapies, exercise, and service.

Dr. Staples earned her BS and Master of Physical Therapy from University of Evansville (Evansville, IN). While there, she explored different ways to enhance her own exercise routine. That was when she discovered Pilates through Brook Siler’s book, The Pilates Body, as she was seeking change in her exercise. The further she delved into the work, the greater connection she saw with her physical therapy profession. While attending Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions for her PhD work in Orthopedics and Sports Science, she completed her comprehensive Pilates teacher training through Polestar® Pilates Education. This credential allowed her to complete her dissertation in April 2011 utilizing Pilates, The Effect of Standing Pilates on the Aging Female Population.

Dr. Staples has presented at the Pilates Method Alliance, Pilates on Tour (Balanced Body), and Physical Therapy Association of Georgia. She has also lectured at Emory University Physical Therapy Department, Georgia State University Physical Therapy Department, and the University of Evansville Physical Therapy Department. She serves as a clinical mentor to her own staff as well as physical therapy students, orthopedic physical therapy residents, and movement practitioners.

A dynamic leader, renowned speaker, and distinguished educator, Dr. Staples and her staff provide the highest levels of care for the patients and clients of ProHealth Physical Therapy and Pilates Studio.
