Kristen Joy, PT, DPT, Clinic Leader

Michael Byrnes, PT, Area Manager


Kristen graduated from University of North Carolina Wilmington in 2013 with a B.S. in Biology. She then attended Campbell University and graduated with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2017.

I was attracted to Physical Therapy because of the amount of one on one time we have with our patients. I love being able to see a patient multiple times a week and follow their entire recovery process, rather than seeing a patient for a few minutes every couple of months. For that reason, I especially like treating post-operative patients. I also trained in Dry Needling in 2019 and love being able to make quick changes in a patient's level of pain with this technique.
