Welcome Kirsten Maakestad!
February 19, 2021
Meet Capital Medical’s newest physical therapist, Kirsten Maakestad. She helps patients in physical therapy navigate treatment in Capital’s outpatient clinic through a variety conditions such as lower back pain, dizziness/vertigo, TMD, joint replacements, etc.
As a part of Capital’s collaborative care team, Kristen told us “I appreciate the role the physical therapist plays working alongside patients who have unique needs and goals. I treat with the approach that individualized care produces individualized results, which looks different for every person. I enjoy adding tools to their toolbox and helping patients see that when they succeed, their achievement is 100% their own.”
In her spare time, Kristen enjoys everything the pacific northwest has to offer like biking, hiking, paddle boarding, and reading. As a transplant from Iowa, she also looks forward to visiting friends and family back home once travelling becomes safely recommended.
