Meet Dr. Amy

Struggling with pain and dysfunction can impact every part of our lives — it drains our energy, distracts us from our goals, and keeps us from the people and activities we love. As an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist, Dr. Amy Konvalin understands how frustrating those limitations can be — and she knows how to help get you back to the life you want to live!

Beginning with a focused evaluation, Dr. Amy works to determine the root causes of your pain, as well as understanding how it affects the way you move through your world. Dysfunctional patterns of movement often grow worse with time and cause further damage if left untreated — so it’s important to address these issues as soon as possible.

Dr. Amy knows there is no one-size-fits-all plan for success, and she partners with patients to identify their unique treatment goals and personal values. Using these goals as a guide, Amy uses her doctorate training in manual (hands-on) therapy and exercise prescription to treat patients with a wide variety of medical challenges and histories throughout the Maple Valley, Black Diamond and Covington areas.

Dr. Amy is also a wife to a Boeing superstar/former C-130 navigator.  While they lived in Germany, Dr. Amy was able to volunteer with the US Army to treat military personnel and civilians on base.  She has two beautiful teenage ballerinas who keep her on her toes and educate her on all things ballet!  Bailey, the princess pup, is her running partner and her napping partner.  In the spare moments in between, Amy enjoys reading, yoga, wine with friends, Pilates, and walking on the beach.
