My life's work is to help those of you with musculoskeletal issues improve your quality of life.  I use hands-on manual therapy to get you out of pain so that you can function and perform at your highest level.

 

Get Well.  Remain Well.

 

I will treat your soft tissues, nerves and joints. I will train you to contract the appropriate stabilizing muscles.  I will teach you proper posture, good body mechanics, and exercises to maintain the results we gain.  These tools will help you remain well.

 

Treat.  Train.  Teach.

 

I have my mom to thank for my decision to become a physical therapist. She had need of physical therapy when I was in high school and would come home and say "I think you might like being a physical therapist." She was right. 

 

Thanks mom.

 

I went to Marquette University and graduated with my Masters of Physical Therapy in 1999.  Since that time I have treated thosands of patients and immersed myself in various forms of continuing education.

 

Sara's Credentials.


I first studied with New Zealand's powerhouse physical therapists  Robin McKenzie and Brian Mulligan.  I certified with the McKenzie Institue (MDT) in 2002.  In 2005, I completed the Trigger Point Dry Needling certification.

 

New Zealand & Needles.

 

My next course of study was with internationally recognized therapists Gregory S. Johnson & Vicky Saliba Johnson. I certified with their organization, the Institue of Physical Art (IPA), in 2009.  During the summer of 2010, I worked with Gregg and Vicky in their Steamboat Springs, Colorado clinic and completed a portion of the nationally accredited Functional Manual Therapy Fellowship.  I became a primary

instuctor for the IPA and taught weekend-long continuing education classes to other physical therapists across the country from 2010 until 2016.

 

Art & Osteopathy.


My most recent course of study has been with the Barral Institute which was founded by French osteopath Jean-Pierre Barral.  I have completed most of the available curriculum with emphasis on Visceral and Neural Manipulation.

 

For Fun.

 

Outside of work I enjoy hiking with my dogs, skiing, yoga, tango dancing, and reading.  I am the mother of boy/girl twins.
