Krystle Howald, PT, DPT
I love assisting people to unleash their healing power. My job is to inspire and nurture the well-being of each patient through the restoration of movement.
I founded Empower Movement out of a growing frustration with current services offered in the physical therapy field. After being employed by both a large hospital and an outpatient orthopedic chain, I realized both were run as a profit center and not invested in providing quality care to patients. I no longer wanted my attention to be divided between two to five patients at once, but rather on one. As a therapist, I longed for the freedom to treat patients to aid in their recovery to the best of my ability, not based on numbers of patients seen in a day.
I received my undergraduate degree in Exercise Science from Marquette University in 2007. I then headed west to Regis University in Colorado, a school well-known in the physical therapy world for their strength in manual therapy and a hands-on approach.
My personal interests outside of work include fitness, anything that has to do with water: boating, swimming, paddle boarding, and kayaking. I ran track in undergraduate school, so know a little something about compulsive exercising. The clinic hustle is real but the real hustle starts when I get home to my three sweet babes, Brooke, Avery and Camden. Those little ones sure know how to keep my husband Tom and I on our toes!
Lindsay Rush, PT, DPT, OCS.
I graduated from Carroll University in 2008 with an entry-level doctorate in physical therapy. Since graduating, I have spent the next decade gaining clinical expertise as a board-certified Orthopedic therapist, a certified Manual therapist, and certified in Dry Needling. My previous work experience includes outpatient orthopedic and sports medicine in a large hospital as well as small practice setting. I love it here at Empower Movement because I get to spend an hour with each patient to treat the area of concern as well as be able to spend the time to find the root cause of the issue and prime the body to reduce the potential for repeat injury. I also love the fact that we have the flexibility to see our patients as needed for tune-ups to keep your body moving at an optimal level over the long-term.
This is not something that is available in the typical insurance-based model, and I believe this way we are able to keep you moving at your best and identify potential movement issues before they even become a problem to avoid unnecessary pain or loss of time doing what you enjoy.
In my free time I love the outdoors in all seasons! My husband and I love taking our fat bikes out in the snow and on the trails in the summer. When we want a little more speed and power, we take out the ATV or speed boat. To slow it down, I love to cook and experiment with healthier versions of classic recipes, or try new and unique flavors. If you’re lucky, you might get to try some healthy baking I bring into the clinic for snacks to help you refuel after your session!
