About the physical therapist

Dr. Kate Uttech is passionate about helping women in pregnancy, labor, postpartum, and beyond. Since graduating with the degree Doctor of Physical Therapy with honors from George Washington University in 2012, Kate has completed extensive continuing education in caring for women. She exclusively treats women, mostly around pregnancy and the complications that can occur for years after. She is dedicated to expanding her own knowledge in order to help more women live the life they deserve.

Kate utilizes manual therapy techniques, lifestyle and nutritional modifications, education on movement patterns, and exercise to help you live life without limitations. In pregnancy, Kate will help to ease the aches, pains and discomforts. Kate treats low back pain, pelvic pain, sciatica, pubic symphysis pain, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, or wellness to facilitate an easier and more comfortable pregnancy. Kate also provides labor preparation and education including personalized recommendations for delivery positions based on the symptoms you have and your ability to relax your pelvic floor in varying of positions. In the immediate postpartum period, Kate focuses on ensuring you are able to enjoy your new baby without pain. Kate can help if you are leaking urine (even just a few drops with coughing, jumping, exercising, or playing with your children), experiencing pain, having difficulty returning to exercise, or finding motherhood more physically exerting than you were prepared for. Kate treats all conditions from the bottom half or your abdomen through the top half of your thighs (hip, pelvic, low back, and abdominal dysfunctions). 

In her free-time, Kate enjoys an active healthy lifestyle with her husband, three daughters, and dog. The family enjoys plenty of time outdoors year round. Kate enjoys yoga, kickboxing, biking, hiking, skiing, and ice skating for her own exercise. In the past, Kate has played many team sports including soccer, field hockey, ice hockey, and rugby. She enjoys reading for pleasure and to learn new skills and techniques to help her clients. She loves to make new friends and to travel to new sights. Her favorite place to relax is at her family farm in Maine, ideally with plenty of lobster and wild blueberry pie.
