Physical Therapist Assistant
Katrin Gardarsdottir, LPTA, Cert.CDT , serves as the Lymphedema Therapist for the Hidenwood office of Pivot Physical Therapy. Katrin has worked for Pivot (formerly Tidewater Physical Therapy) since 2001. Katrin received her Associates Degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant at Tidewater Community college and a Bachelors in Health Science at Old Dominion University. Katrin received her certification in Lymphedema Therapy from The Academy of Lymphatic Studies in 2002 and has been treating this diverse population of patients ever since. Katrin is a Certified Compression Garment Fitter for Jobst and Juzo.
Katrin believes that very little support and education is given to Lymphedema patients and strives to not only help them decrease their swelling but to educate them on their condition and provide them the skills needed to help them maintain their reduction and lead fulfilling lives.
When Katrin is not working she enjoys reading, travelling, and spending time with friends and family.
