KELSEY BELLANCA PT, DPT, CPT, USATF L1
Growing up, Kelsey wanted nothing more than to be a professional dancer. While she worked towards achieving this goal, she also enjoyed outdoor activities such as hiking and skiing. After a knee injury while dancing at elite and professional levels, Kelsey’s experience in physical therapy led her to pursue the profession herself with the mission of helping athletes continue to perform at their desired level.
Kelsey obtained her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2016 and has worked in a variety of settings including the ICU, stroke rehab, and outpatient settings, allowing her to have a thorough understanding of the experiences her clients have from the moment of injury well into their return to sports and activities. Kelsey also maintains a focus on performance optimization where she helps athletes prevent injury before it occurs while operating at their best.
Since moving to Colorado, Kelsey has fallen even more in love with the outdoors and has found cycling to be one of her favorite ways to explore, and an initial start with a love of gravel has quickly grown to love for all bikes.
Adding bike fitting to her skillset was a natural progression, and has allowed her to have a more comprehensive understanding of and impact on the athletes she works with.
When Kelsey isn’t working, you can find her riding, running, skiing, or exploring with her dog, Buttons.
