A little about Kerri Kramer Webb, MSPT, DPT: Founder of The Fast Track Sports Medicine & Performance Center
Kerri Kramer Webb spent a decade as a young athlete with an undiagnosed spinal fracture. An xray was taken 10 years later and confirmed the diagnosis but no solution was given except to “stop playing sports”. She went on to pursue physical therapy at Ithaca College in efforts to find a solution and obtained her Masters of Science degree in 2000. She then went on a mission to provide accurate diagnostics and real solutions for sports injuries. She received her doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2014 through Evidence in Motion.
Kerri created and founded “Fast Track Physical Therapy”, a specialty clinic for athletes with a strong focus in both manual therapy and bio-mechanical analysis. Since its inception in 2009, Fast Track has evolved into an integrated sports medicine and performance center to provide a full spectrum of solutions. This athlete haven currently provides services in a collaborative model through sports doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists, strength & conditioning coaches, and swim experts.
Kerri intends to continue her pursuit to deliver cutting edge sports medicine and performance strategies for athletes from recreational to professional levels. She has taught running analysis and rehab strategies on a national level with “Healthy Running”.
Kerri was a multisport athlete in high school playing basketball, softball, and running cross country. She continued on to play collegiate basketball for Ithaca. After graduating, she began running marathons and later transitioned to triathlons. Her athletic achievements include qualification for the Boston Marathon in 2004, completing Ironman twice in 2007 and 2011, and qualifying multiple times for USAT Halfmax National championships. She continues to compete in triathlons and has an affinity to trail running.
