Our Team


Kurt Bergeron, MSPT

Owner of Amherst Physical Therapy

Kurt earned his degree from Ithaca College School of Health Sciences and Human Performance, Ithaca New York. As an avid athlete in his youth, and a current fan of many of the area sports teams, Kurt found the lure of working with the human body hard to resist. After graduation, Kurt began his career in a large scale orthopedic outpatient clinic where he was mentored by a number of top quality physical therapists before himself becoming the manager of that facility just a few years after he began working there. Utilizing the opportunity to expand his learning through a wide variety of continuing education courses, Kurt quickly developed a strong interest in orthopedic assessments of the foot, shoulder, knee and spine.

Kurt treats orthopedics injuries using manual and traditional physical therapy modalities, while working with his patients to provide the highest level of function upon completion of treatment. Kurt started Amherst Physical Therapy in 2007, where he looks forward to supporting area athletes, and those seeking rehabilitation services. Kurt is a member of: APTA & Souhegan Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Throughout her schooling and clinical rotations, Julia’s clinical interests grew to include manual therapy and treating chronic pain, as well as working with both orthopedic and neurological conditions. Regardless of what diagnosis or population she is treating, she enjoys partnering with her patients to help them achieve their rehab goals and return to the activities that are most meaningful to them.
