Meet Dr. Kayla Martinez-Burnap PT, DPT
Physical Therapist - Dallas
Dr. Kayla has a great passion for serving the city of Dallas, specifically women in every stage of their lives. Dr. Kayla is a bilingual Physical Therapist, who enjoys raising awareness to issues that women and athletes 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 movement and a holistic approach. 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 loved ones and her husband (who is her middle school sweetheart). She enjoys playing soccer, weightlifting or doing pilates. She loves cooking and trying new restaurants or watching reality TV.
