life quality matters

Kayla Bach, MOTR/L, C/NDT

I am a registered and licensed Occupational Therapist (OT) who graduated with a Master’s degree from Colorado State University in 2012. My undergraduate education was in Business, but after a few years of working in finance I decided to pursue my dream of becoming an OT. Returning to school to become an Occupational Therapist was one of the best decisions I have ever made, as I am passionate about health and helping others to live their lives to the fullest. As an OT I look at how impairments related to posture and movement affect my patient’s daily lives, work closely with them to maintain independence, and help them to keep doing the activities that they find meaningful.

My OT career began at an inpatient rehab facility in Northwest Florida, where I developed a passion for treating patients with neurological deficits. This led me to obtain my NDT (Neuro-Developmental Treatment) certification, which means that I am a specialist in the management of adults who have experienced a stroke or brain injury. I am also certified in LSVT BIG®, a specialized treatment approach for adults with Parkinson’s disease.

Upon returning to the Front Range, I have continued to expand my skills by working with clients in a variety of settings, from hospital to skilled nursing facility. I have received specialized training in rehabilitation, orthopedics, geriatrics, dementia, low vision, and motor dysfunction, and I am dedicated to staying up to date with research and current trends. I believe in taking a holistic approach in recognizing each individual’s needs and will not promote a “one size fits all” approach in our treatment sessions.

I enjoy spending time with my husband, young daughter, and two vizslas. When the weekend comes I am usually found somewhere in the mountains- skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, or hiking and paddleboarding in the summer.
