    Dr. Wendy Katzman is Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science. She is a physical therapist and board-certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist. Dr. Katzman received a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston and a post-professional Doctor of Physical Therapy Science degree from the University of California (UCSF)/San Francisco State Graduate Program in Physical Therapy. Dr. Katzman completed the UCSF Advanced Training in Clinical Research certificate program and a NIH/UCSF K12 Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health research fellowship to study age-related hyperkyphosis. Dr. Katzman sees patients in the UCSF Women’s Health Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation Program and teaches community-based exercise classes in the Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science Health and Wellness Center.

    Dr. Katzman's research interests are focused on the influence of excessive spinal curvature in the thoracic spine, also known as hyperkyphosis, on physical function and health-related quality of life. She is conducting 2 clinical trials to investigate preventative and rehabilitative strategies for improving kyphosis and musculoskeletal aging in older men and women. Her research is funded by the National Institutes of Health, including the National Institute of Aging, Office of Research in Women's Health, and the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases.
