Karen Mok, DPT
Karen knew at an early age that she wanted to be a Physical Therapist. Growing up as a competitive martial artist in wushu (Chinese martial arts), she acquired many injuries. Eventually, she had to go to physical therapy, where she was the perfect patient and did her exercises religiously. Low and behold, physical therapy worked! Karen’s goal is to enrich the lives of others through physical therapy so that they may take an active role in their recovery, progression, and evolution.
After receiving her Bachelor of Science in Physiological Sciences at UCLA, Karen went on to get her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of St. Augustine in San Marcos, CA in 2018. Karen has experience treating a wide array of conditions including neurological disorders, balance/fall risk prevention, sports injuries, chronic pain, post-operative rehabilitation, Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD), and developmental delays. Karen’s approach is to treat each patient individually and specific to their condition, impairments, and goals. Her philosophy is to maximize the functional abilities of her patients and get them back to 105%–better than they were before. She will provide you with the knowledge and tools to understand how your body moves, how to progress on your own, and how to prevent injury.
Karen moved to NY in 2019 and enjoys exploring the city. While she no longer does martial arts, she remains active by working out at the gym, hiking, and paddleboarding. Mental health and acuity are important too! She is an avid reader and read more than 20 books at the beginning of the COVID-19 shutdown.
