Erik Kust, Physical Therapist

Erik graduated in 2013 from UW Madison with a degree in Kinesiology (Exercise and Movement Science). During his time at Madison, Erik became involved in the Adaptive Fitness Program, an initiative that helps children with disabilities learn exercise techniques and have one-on-one time with a volunteer for treatment. He was also able to work with adults dealing with Parkinson’s and MS, taking a hands-on approach to aide them in their rehab process.

After moving to Pennsylvania to attend Arcadia University for his post-grad, Erik worked with Dr. Phil McClure on a research study focusing on the rotator cuff as it relates to exercise. This study was accepted and presented at the 2017 Physical Therapy’s National Combined Sections Meeting Conference.

Erik has spent time in Jacksonville, FL where he worked with athletes at the Center for Sports Therapy.  He took part in weekly clinics for all athletes in the area (everyone from High School level to DI athletes from the University of North Florida) and gained experience in Sports Medicine, ACL injury prevention, and concussion rehabilitation.

Currently, he is a member of the Sports section of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). He is undergoing training to become an orthopedic clinical specialist through an online residency program from his alma mater, Arcadia University.

When he is not working here at PROCare, he’s spending time with friends in the city, catching a Wisconsin game, or playing soccer or basketball for a recreational team.
