Kerry Giroux, MSPT, CSCS, has worked with Performance Physical Therapy since 2005 as a physical therapist. Kerry earned her bachelor’s degree in physical education from the University of Rhode Island, then returned to earn her Master of Science in Physical Therapy in 2001. While at URI, Kerry played on the women’s basketball team and had the opportunity while playing to travel to many places including Alaska, Montana, California, and Ireland.
She was also a part of the only URI women’s team to play in the NCAA tournament. Giroux is a 2006 New England Basketball Hall of Fame Inductee, a 2013 West Warwick High School Athletic Hall of Fame inductee. She was an All-State athlete in soccer, basketball, and softball while in high school.
Kerry is certified in dry needling and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. Giroux specializes in Orthopedic, neurological and post-surgical rehabilitation, shoulder and knee rehabilitation, sports medicine, and functional dry needling. She’s also a clinical instructor.
Giroux is a member of Johnson's Pond Civic Association. She is active in CLCF and Coventry youth soccer leagues, and one of her favorite ways of giving back is through "adopting a family" at Christmas time through Children's Friend in Providence.
She likes to spend her time outside the clinic with family and friends. She especially enjoys spending time with her 2 boys, Garrett and Luke. To stay active she likes to paddle board around Johnson’s pond. She finds time to volunteer as a coach for youth soccer and basketball leagues in Cranston, Coventry, and West Warwick. She also serves on the PTO for Orchard Farms Elementary School.
She likes to tell patients to minimize time in front of the computer, phones and other devices, and to use that time instead to move around, walk or exercise. And, she adds, “keep hydrated!”
