Kristy Bolha DPT

Team Physical Therapist

Kristy was born in a small city by the name of Greensburg, Pennsylvania, just outside of Pittsburgh. When she was sixteen, she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Her first-hand experiences with the impact of lifestyle choices on prevention and reversing disease process led Kristy to develop a passion for health, fitness and overall wellness. In 2008 she received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Exercise Science from the University of Pittsburgh and graduated with her Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy in 2011. Kristy’s education, and personal and professional experiences have taught her that the body has an innate way to heal itself when provided with the right environment, nutrition, and exercising. This is the guiding philosophy that Kristy integrates into her treatment approach with each patient and contribute to Miller Physical Therapy.

Prior to joining Miller Physical Therapy, Kristy worked in inpatient, subacute, and outpatient/orthopedic settings. Kristy’s professional experiences have given her a thorough understanding of the various natural healing stages of the human body and the positive impact of rehabilitative/restorative medicine. She is particularly well-versed in the recovery of orthopedic injuries and surgical interventions, especially joint replacements and connective tissue/ligament repairs. Additionally, she firmly believes in the efficacy of hands-on therapy, and has pursued post-graduate education for techniques for myofascial trigger point identification and treatment.

Upon finishing school, Kristy relocated to South Florida to begin her professional career and center it around a healthy lifestyle. When not working, Kristy enjoys practicing yoga, working out in the gym, walking her dogs, cooking up healthy recipes and frequenting the local cafes and restaurants. Her favorite activity is weight training as it requires self-discipline, strength and focus. Kristy firmly believes that “when the mind and body are connected amazing things begin to transpire.”
