Sarah Niederbuhl, DPT

Sarah began her career working with the human body as a licensed massage therapist. In practice for over ten years, she focused her energy in neuromuscular and sports massage where she developed an astute sense of touch and tissue assessment. Through her experience with massage and witnessing the impact of psychosocial factors on recovery, she went on to complete a bachelorís degree in psychology with an emphasis in neuroscience at Pacific University in Forest Grove, OR. It was then a natural progression to continue her interest in the human body and mind with a doctorate in physical therapy, which she obtained from the University of Utah.

Sarah believes the best route to recovery is through a patient-centered approach, where clinician and patient work together. Each patient poses a unique recovery process, which Sarah strives to identify with a focus in manual therapy, individualized exercise programs, patient education, and one-on-one guidance. She is in constant pursuit of knowledge and new skills to help her patients accomplish their goals. She could not be more thrilled with this career choice and truly loves her work!

Originally from the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York, Sarah is excited to be continuing a life out west for both career and outdoor ambitions. In her free time Sarah is usually alpine or back country skiing, trail running, hiking or backpacking. She especially enjoys sharing her love of the outdoors through adaptive sports and is eager to work with local ski programs this winter.
