Dr. Schulte understands how it feels to have injury hold you back from the activities you love. A former track and cross country athlete at Xavier University, she sustained a low back injury that was projected to end her running career. Fortunately, she began pursuing alternatives to surgery and medication, which led to earning her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at the University of Dayton.
With a passion for integrating holistic healthcare into traditional physical therapy, Dr. Schulte has received advanced training in spinal manipulation and osteopathic treatment of the pelvis, dry needle therapy, and running analysis. Additionally, Dr. Schulte has presented research on the effects of food-related inflammation on musculoskeletal health, integrating mindfulness practice into physical healing, and incorporating wellness initiatives into the workplace.
Dr. Schulte has a special interest in educating aspiring physical therapists and serves as adjunct faculty in the University of Dayton Doctor of Physical Therapy department. She has enjoyed getting integrated into her Troy community by volunteering at the Health Partners Free Clinic, as a Lunch Buddy with The Future Begins Today, and by being involved in the Kiwanis Club of Troy. She continues to be an avid runner while also enjoying cycling, water and snow skiing.
