You all remember the "MEET THE PHYSICIANS" blog posts, correct? Well, now it's our turn.
This is just some simple background information regarding what all of our treating therapists specialize in, and where their clinical interests lie, at this location.
Hope Hillyard, DPT
Focus lies within all aspects of orthopaedic rehabilitation and performance, ranging from pre and post-operational treatments, to balance and gait training, to generalized joint and back pain. Dr. Hillyard's pre and post-operational treatments cover a wide variety of procedures; the most common being ACL reconstruction/meniscus repair, labral repairs of the shoulder and hip, rotator cuff repairs, and total joint replacements of the shoulder, hip, and knee. Her clinical interests include manual and manipulation of the spine, as well as high-level sports medicine rehabilitation with high school through professional athletes. As of 2017, she will be a certified Spinal Specialist by the American Board of Spinal Manipulation.
Janice Bode, PT
Focus lies within all aspects of orthopaedic rehabilitation, with specialties including the distal lower extremity, foot, and ankle, as well as the back and core. While Mrs. Bode practices with an emphasis in non-surgical rehabilitation to allow her to focus on the cause of pain as opposed to the symptoms, she has established a reputation as one of Kansas City's best physical therapists for post-surgical rehabilitation of the foot and ankle.
Molly Sauder, PT
Focus lies within the pelvis floor, with treatment protocols established to relieve symptoms from a wide variety of conditions; including incontinence and constipation.

Kaitlin Way, PTA
Focus lies within all aspects of rehabilitation and performance, with a similar list of credentials as Dr. Hillyard. Mrs. Way can see any patient of Dr. Hillyard's, as they share a similar professional relationship to that of a medical doctor and their physician's assistant. She has a special clinical interest in high-level recovery for sports medicine injuries, as she is also a certified Weight Lifting Coach and Personal Trainer through the American Council of Exercise, as well as a licensed Cross-Fit coach. Kaitlin has helped to design and establish many of our high-level athlete protocols during the latter aspects of their rehab to continuously challenge them at a level that will benefit them pending their return to sport.
