Dr. Kelsey Karns PT,DPT,

Kelsey is originally from Paducah, Kentucky, where she lived for 18 years before moving to Lexington to pursue her Bachelors in Exercise Science at the University of Kentucky.  She graduated in 2014 and was accepted into the Physical Therapy program at UK. In August of 2018, she received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy and began working for Spaulding Physical Therapy. Throughout her time in school she gained valuable experience in both outpatient and inpatient settings with a focus on neurological diagnoses such as Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis. She also has a special interest in the treatment of vertigo, which is what led her to pursue physical therapy initially.


Kelsey lives in Lexington, KY with her husband and enjoys spending free time outdoors with activities such as running and biking. She is also actively involved with her church where she spends time volunteering on weekends. She is excited to continue growing as a therapist and helping patients to attain the best outcome for their physical therapy needs.
