"My goal is to help you be your very best."


Lea Klein, MSPT, is a physical therapist and owner of Klein Physical Therapy, P.C.  Lea created Klein Physical Therapy because she has a passion for helping people get back to the things they love and she feels she can deliver an accelerated rate of improvement with private, one hour sessions focused on your unique needs.

Lea graduated from St. Louis University with her bachelor's in Exercise Science in 2000, and then a Master's in Physical Therapy in 2001.  During her almost 17 year career, she became more and more passionate about treating the pregnant and postpartum patient and decided to go through training to treat pelvic floor disorders in 2007.  Her strong orthopedic background prior to this specialty has assisted her in using a "whole body" approach to treatment for better overall results.  She has a commitment to education and has additional massage training from the Center of Advanced Therapeutics as well as being certified in trigger point dry needling.  Lea is trained in visceral mobilization, Selective Functional Movement Analysis, and kinesiotaping as well.

As a wife and mother of 3, Lea stays very busy with her family when she is not treating patients.  Gardening, cooking, yoga, and pilates are hobbies of hers.

Today, she highly emphasizes manual therapy and a functional, whole body approach by incorporating treatments such as Myofascial Decompression, Graston Technique, running analysis and various other manual therapy treatment techniques.

In May of 2019, Katie and her husband welcomed their first child. The journey to motherhood peaked her interest and she is excited to be working with the pre and postpartum population as well.
