About the Author

Dr. Heather Moore, PT, DPT, CKTP is a leader in the field of sports physical therapy. Dr. Moore is a nationally recognized doctor of physical therapy who has spent her career in outpatient orthopedics. She has treated thousands of athletes, from professional to collegiate to weekend warriors to high school to amateur. Her work has included time on the PGA and LPGA tours. Dr. Moore founded Total Performance Physical Therapy in 2011 because she believed that high quality, individualized, hands-on care was essential and she wanted to bring that to the area.

Dr. Moore's interest in physical therapy began when she suffered many of her own repetitive injuries as a Division 1 swimmer and water polo player at the University of Maryland College Park. From there she went on to receive her Masters and Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Maryland Baltimore. But Dr. Moore has not stopped her learning, and she continues to be on the cutting edge of the latest treatment techniques. She has completed over one thousand hours of continuing education including classes in Paris, McKenzie, orthotic prescription, and functional training seminars. She has also gone on to receive her certification in Kinesiotaping.

Dr. Moore believes that education is a large part of the body healing process, and if people understand their bodies and understand how they injured themselves, it can prevent future injuries and can allow the current injury to heal faster. Therefore Dr. Moore has spent many years of her career writing publications for various news outlets. She has contributed to the textbook Orthopedic Physical Therapy. She is a regular writer for philly.com sports doc blog, examiner.com and axs.com. She has been published in Advance magazine for physical therapy. She has also published articles in PhillyFit magazine and been a contributor to Men's Fitness magazine among other leading fitness journals. She also lectures across the country to other physical therapists and fitness professionals.

Dr. Moore also enjoys actively participating in races and promoting a healthy way of living. She has completed many 5K, 10 mile and half marathon distances and is tackling her first marathon in the fall of 2014. She also competes on the triathlon circuit, having completed many sprint, Olympic and a 70.3. Dr. Moore believes that the answer is to never stop running, never stop working out, and find a way to make it happen.
