Sarah Elsen, MPT

“My years of experience as a competitive athlete have left me with a personal understanding of how the rigors of intense daily training affect the body. When treating patients, I combine this experience with my extensive education and training to come up with the best plan of care for each person. I feel that with my experience and expertise in sports and orthopedics I can work to resolve the patient’s injury and provide them with the tools to prevent future problems.”
