MEET Dr. Sarah Paxson, PT, DPT, OCS Owner, Physical Therapist, Board-Certified Orthopedic Specialist

Dr. Sarah Paxson (preferred pronouns she/her) is a native East Coaster from Vermont. She graduated from Princeton University in 2006 where she played D1 Ice Hockey, was on the ECAC All-Academic Team for four years, and even coincidentally played against her colleague, Dr. Alana Collins. Sarah then earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Washington in 2013 and her Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Orthopedic Physical Therapy in 2016.

Sarah specializes in orthopedics and sports medicine and enjoys helping people recover from injuries to facilitate their return to what is meaningful for them - whether that is sleeping comfortably without pain, hiking in the mountains, or being able to play with their kids. She enjoys bringing her background as a personal trainer and registered yoga teacher into her practice. Sarah has worked with a myriad of professional and elite-level athletes and has earned her bronze-level bike-fitting certification through BikePT. Recently, she completed her Menopause 2.0 certification. 

Outside of work, Sarah enjoys mountain biking, skiing, playing ice hockey, running, and trying to keep up with her young boys and husband. Given her background as an elite level athlete, she has endured many injuries, and has gleaned a greater empathy and appreciation for the recovery process
