Dr. Kelsey Burrow


Dr. Kelsey Burrow is an Austin, Texas native that now calls Waco home. She graduated from Baylor University in 2018 with her bachelor’s degree in Health Science Studies. After graduation, Kelsey earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor in 2020.

During her time in physical therapy school, Kelsey did a clinical rotation under Dr. Weldon, where she was introduced to the Functional Manual Therapy (FMT) philosophy. Kelsey has a strong interest in FMT and is pursuing a certification in FMT. Aside from her desire to continue to learn and grow as a physical therapist, Kelsey loves the relational aspect the physical therapy profession provides.

Kelsey has a strong background in competitive cheer and volleyball both as a player and then as a coach with Waco Juniors Volleyball Club. Growing up as a competitive cheerleader and volleyball player, she is no stranger to injuries. During her senior year of high school, Kelsey tore her ACL which required surgery and a lengthy recovery with physical therapy. This is what inspired her to pursue a career in physical therapy.

Outside of WDPT, Kelsey loves traveling and spending time with her husband, her cat named Jelly Bean and dog named Kali. You can often find her at some of her local favorite spots like Nightlight Doughnuts and DiCampli’s.

Dr. Burrow’s favorite aspect of physical therapy is how relational it is. “You aren’t just seeing these people once every couple months, but, often times, you’re seeing them a couple of times a week. You get to learn about them, their families, their grand babies, and their jobs. I genuinely love getting to know people while I help improve their lives physically. I couldn’t ask for a better profession to be part of.”
