Flourish Physical Therapy & Wellness
With over 11 years of experience in orthopedic physical therapy, I have seen a lot. I have a bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Marquette University, and I continue to learn more every day. I am also a certified vestibular rehabilitation (vertigo) specialist. My treatments are 60 unrushed minutes of 1-on-1 time. I use a holistic approach, respecting and addressing the mind-body connection. My goal is to empower you to take charge of your own health, so I give you all the tools you need to succeed.
Are you experiencing dizziness or pain that won't go away? Are you tired of doctors who don't listen, PTs who pass you off to aides, pills and exercises that don't seem to work? I would love to help you!
After providing a thorough exam, I offer personalized education about your specific body and pain issues to guide you on a path to relief and improved function. I am specialized in treating vertigo, and I can help with acute shoulder pain, knee pain, or back pain, or longer lasting chronic pain in the neck, back, and various joints. My #1 goal is to empower you and to guide your amazing body on your unique path to health.
As a cash-based physical therapy clinic, you will never get a surprise bill from me! Spending more time together at each visit gets you results quickly. By working outside of insurance, we have total freedom to treat you as you need and deserve to be treated. Call for details. Pay up front with the option to get reimbursed from your insurance via out-of-network benefits. I accept all major credit cards, HSA or FSA cards, checks or cash. I do bill insurance on MVA claims. Depending on your deductible, co-insurance, and co-pays, paying out of pocket here could cost less than using your insurance elsewhere!
Dr. Sarah is certified in vestibular rehab through The American Institute of Balance. She specializes in treating vertigo, cervical dizziness, BPPV, vestibular neuritis, vestibular dysfunction, PPPD/3PD, and post-concussion syndrome. Whether you need the Epley maneuver, gaze stabilization, or habituation and adaptation exercises, you can work with me to clear your head and stop spinning!
Dr. Sarah is a certified fall prevention specialist through Evergreen Certifications. She is up-to-date with the latest knowledge and techniques for improving balance and reducing a person's fall risk. There are many factors that can negatively affect a person's risk for falls - Dr. Sarah knows all the right questions to ask and what systems to test in order to get you functioning at your best. Work with me to improve your balance!
Dr. Sarah uses a novel approach to chronic pain, utilizing the latest research from the field of neuroscience. Pain is more complex than many in the medical community give it credit for. With her Pain Neuroscience Education approach, you will learn about your pain and what is really causing it in order to improve your function and quality of life. In addition to traditional physical therapy treatments, such as manual therapy and therapeutic exercise, she offers guided meditation, mindfulness education and practice, progressive muscle relaxation, personalized sleep hygiene and journaling practice to empower you on your own journey toward better health and function.
We can work on a General Fitness & Endurance Program, or goal-specific training (improved flexibility for your golf swing, etc). Do you want to improve your jogging form? You can work with Dr. Sarah at the Hart Field track, which is practically in Flourish's back yard. Feeling a bit off, achy, creaky, or just plain weak and fatigued? Let's work on it together before it becomes a bigger issue.
Dr. Sarah graduated with her BA in Psychology and her Doctor of Physical Therapy degrees from Marquette University in 2008 and 2010 respectively. She has been practicing physical therapy in the outpatient orthopedic field for the last 11 years, continually learning and staying up on the latest research. She is honored to get to meet people and have such an intimate role in their lives to bring about healing. She incorporates the whole person into her treatment approach, getting to know more than just their body parts. She believes each person is unique and has specific factors in their lives that contribute to their experience of pain. She is especially passionate about treating people in pain and helping them regain enjoyment out of their life!
She opened Flourish PT & Wellness in August of 2020 and is excited to operate under a different model of care. Working independently means no more productivity standards or corporate bosses calling the shots. Likewise, operating out-of-network with all insurances means that red tape is a thing of the past here at Flourish. Dr. Sarah is able to provide specific, personal, unique care to each patient that comes in the door. She can work on any and every problem area without needing new orders, and has the freedom to get creative and even take treatments on the road! Dr. Sarah is passionate about helping people find relief and return to fully functioning lives, and working on her own allows her to do just that.
Dr. Sarah became certified in vestibular rehabilitation in 2017 through The American Institute of Balance. She has had great success in treating people with acute and chronic dizziness or balance issues. Often, full resolution of dizziness can happen with one treatment session! She achieved another certification as a Fall Prevention Specialist in March, 2021 through Evergreen Certification.
Dr. Sarah moved to Spokane in 2010 after graduating from Marquette and met her husband within the year. They have now been married for 9 years and have two beautiful children. She enjoys getting outside as much as possible, whether it's hiking, snow shoeing, biking, camping or visiting the many local parks with her kids. She is an active member of her church - New Community - and of the Spokane NAACP. She and her husband are also board game aficionados.
