  • “I am so grateful to be working with Chelsea. I feel like a GH fan girl. LOL!

    It’s been so many years of trying to find providers who understand the need and solution for this gap in care. I’ve had other providers say, “You can’t change your feet. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!” and “Your foot type will always be painful and sore.”

    You’re doing amazing work! THANK YOU!”
    – Melissa, Virtual Consultation Client

Dr Eryn

Dr. Eryn Simon, DPT

Colombus, Ohio

Dr. Eryn Simon believes in the human body’s resilience. She knows with the right education and guidance people can overcome pain and return to the activities they love.

As an athlete who dealt with persistent knee pain from youth through college, she knows all too well the struggles of trying multiple treatments with no lasting benefits. Now, as an expert in human movement, she strives to educate her clients on the correlation between body mechanics and pain, give them the tools for self management, and get them back to fearless movement.

Dr. Simon attended Walsh University where she played collegiate softball and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology. She then went on to pursue her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at The Ohio State University. After working as a clinician in a busy outpatient clinic, she knew she could do more to help people but needed a different environment. In spring of 2019, Dr. Simon opened Sole Physical Therapy, a cash based practice in Columbus Ohio. This is where she currently provides in person treatments along with virtual consultations for Gait Happens.

Dr. Simon is a lifelong learner who is always striving to further her education especially in the subject of foot and ankle dysfunction. For fun, she enjoys traveling, playing sand volleyball to get in her competitive fix, and socializing with friends and family.

Dr. Kala

Kala Hildebrand, MPT

Asheville, North Carolina

Kala earned a Master’s degree in physical therapy from Western Carolina University in 2012.

After that she began working in outpatient, orthopedic therapy in Asheville, North Carolina, treating patients with a wide variety of diagnoses.

She addresses pain and movement dysfunction and has deeply focused time with her patients.

Kala found the world of injury treatment and physical therapy as a teenager, experiencing intermittent dance-related injuries. Her 25+ years of modern dance training and performing inform her interest in restoring patients to pain-free movement patterns. Her interest in the intersection of movement and bodywork also attracted her to Thai massage, incorporating movement, stretching, and compression work. She has completed over 180 hours of Thai massage training in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Together, Kala’s training and experience allow her to address the needs of professional dancers, athletes and amateur movers alike, finding methods of treatment to return each individual to ease of movement.

Dr. Emily Schilling, DC

Lakewood, CO

Dr. Emily Schilling began her career in the medical field at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she graduated with a double major in Neurology and Nutritional Science.

From there, she continued on to receive her Doctorate of Chiropractic and Master's in Functional Nutrition from Parker University in Dallas, TX.

Dr. Schilling has always enjoyed being athletic and has participated in a number of sports throughout her life. Some of these include track and field, volleyball, and gymnastics. Currently, she is heavily involved in the triathlon community and has competed in multiple half Ironmans and recently finished her first full Ironman in Wisconsin '22.

Given her participation in high level sports, she understands the need for quality assessments of pain, targeted exercises and care based on the individual. In specific, she places an emphasis on the lower extremity and gait patterns. After sustaining a number of running related injuries, she wanted to know not only why they kept occurring but also how to treat and ultimately prevent them. After years of research and continuation in the sport, she has a wealth of knowledge that she would love to share with you! Her main goal is to show people that they can reach their goals in whatever activity they love. By looking at the body as a whole, her ambition is to create smart, sustainable changes in the system that not only allow people to complete those tough workouts, but also keep the longevity.

Apart from sports, Dr. Schilling also loves nutrition. Growing up as a type 1 diabetic, this was, and still is, her world. She is currently pursuing her license to become a Certified Nutrition Specialist. If you ever feel like chatting about race or training fueling recommendations, her door is always open!
