Karin biskovich, mpt
Karin has been with Apple Therapy since 2003 – becoming a Clinical Director in 2009. Her clinical and research interests include rehabilitation for runners, triathletes, swimmers, gymnasts, and ACL prevention programs. Outside of work, Karin has competed nationally and internationally in triathlons – she loves being active and outside no matter the season. Karin also is a devoted triathlon and running coach – no better coach than this world-class triathlete!
When asked what sparked her interest in pursuing this career, Karin said “During my 19 year gymnastics career I experienced several major injuries and physical therapy was a large positive factor in my return to sport at the college level. Also my background in gymnastics gave me a key eye for proper body movement and functional weaknesses.” She added, “My goal as a therapist is to get you stronger and healthy so that you can do the activities that you want to do and feel good!”

Heather has been with Apple Therapy since 2016. Her areas of clinical and research interest are concussion and vestibular rehabilitation, as well as general orthopedic injuries. In the future, Heather plans to become more involved at local dance centers to provide injury screenings and prevention programs.
When asked why she chose to pursue this career, Heather answered “I was a passionate dancer growing up, and during my senior year of high school I developed achilles tendonitis – this led me to physical therapy. My therapist helped me return to the stage pain-free for my final Nutcracker performance”. She continued, “I remember observing how this profession allows you to play an important role in so many people’s lives by applying your clinical knowledge to get them functionally back to what they love to do! From that moment on, I knew physical therapy was the career choice for me and it truly has been so rewarding!”.
Outside of work, Heather enjoys being in the sun – no matter what she’s doing – exercising, hiking, relaxing by the pool or at the lake. She also enjoys cooking, baking, dancing, and most importantly, spending time with family and friends.
