Meet Dr. Kayla Martinez-Burnap PT, DPT

Physical Therapist - Dallas


Being born and raised in DFW, Dr. Kayla has a great passion for serving this community. Dr. Kayla is a bilingual Physical Therapist, who enjoys raising awareness to issues that women go through that are often overlooked and viewed as “normal”. Growing up she went through her own bouts of physical therapy and immediately fell in love with the idea of being able to help others through a holistic approach and movement. When google and her own providers only prescribed kegels for her problems and nothing improved, she knew there had to be something better.


Dr. Kayla earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology from Texas Woman’s University and then her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth. She was president of the Physical Therapy Student Association and was involved in research that brought awareness and education to the Latino community of Fort Worth. She has completed post-professional training in pelvic health therapy and holds a certificate in dry needling. Through continuing education she has received training that emphasizes treating interstitial cystitis, vaginismus, dyspareunia, urinary problems, pregnancy and postpartum, and athletes. She has also received training from the Postural Restoration Institute, emphasizing on treating the pelvis.


Dr. Kayla is ready to create a safe space for her patients where she will help educate, equip and empower them to a better quality of life. She believes that everyone should receive individualized care and be treated as a whole person, not just as their diagnosis. She is excited to team up with her patients to help them achieve their goals.


In her spare time, Dr. Kayla loves spending quality time with her her husband (who is her middle school sweetheart), her daughter Maya, their dog Roxy and extended friends and family. She enjoys playing soccer, weightlifting or doing pilates. She loves cooking, watching reality TV or going to concerts.
