Life is an athletic event.

Whether you are lifting up a grocery bag or deadlifting a barbell.  Hiking Mount Mansfield or walking across the parking lot.  Chasing a player down the field or running around with your grandchild.

WE ARE ALL
LIFESTYLE ATHLETES

The demands alter not in kind, but in intensity.

We Understand.

Our Philosophy

Keep Doing What You Love

Rehabilitation and training should not be separate entities but rather intertwined within a universal program.  SBPT strives to integrate your care and goals within your established training plan and daily routine.  Our approach combines exercise-based interventions with patient education on active correction of movement patterns, postural deviations, and faulty mechanics.  Manual techniques and modalities are used to compliment movement-based interventions when exercise alone is not appropriate.  By working together, we can enhance your performance, reduce the risk of injury, and, most importantly, keep you doing what you love.

Coach's Corner

Influencing our nervous system is more beneficial than trying to change muscle structure itself.  Common narratives surrounding “mobility” tools such as foam rolling, lacrosse ball smashing, or instrumented soft tissue mobilization (ISTM) often dictate that we are trying to break up scar tissue or muscle adhesions. I’d challenge that our tissues are a bit more resilient than that.

“I came to SBPT in June 2017. I had a total knee replacement 18 months earlier and was looking for some guidance getting back to working out. One of the main reasons I chose to work with Casey was she was a CrossFit rainer, and I wanted to get back to doing CrossFit. With Casey`s help, I was able to gain confidence in my knee and return to CrossFit.

Mobility and flexibility are widely used terms, sometimes interchangeably, to describe the process of attempting to achieve more range of motion in a certain body segment. You may have seen or performed the following scenario: “I’m going to go work on my mobility”. Then, you proceed to grab a foam roller to roll the body… Read More

Praise from our Lifestyle Athletes

A killer combination of compassion, communication, and an acute understanding of the body’s underlying mechanisms make Casey an incredible Physical Therapist. Story Time: A few months back I was doored by a car while biking down a hill on my way to work. My shoulder was significantly jacked up, and no matter what I tried, I couldn’t figure out the solution to the problem. By the end of the first session, Casey had figured out that it was my diaphragm – rather than the shoulder itself – causing my pain while going overhead, had prescribed multiple exercises to remedy the problem, and made clear what the progression to health would look and feel like. As a weightlifter it was imperative to my sport performance that I get my shoulder pain under control when lifting heavy weights overhead, and Casey was able to find the solution half-way down the kinetic chain from where most people would’ve spent weeks trying to fix me.

Casey and the team at South Burlington Physical Therapy have helped me keep healthy and on track for my physical goals. After seeing me as an emergency walk-in for a lower back spasm that was so intense I couldn’t walk without pain we developed a set of exercises that I still do to this day. What I learned and practice keeps my lower back strong and aware of my posture and walk which is the key to any issues I may have with my back. They’re thoughtful, realistic and nice. Also, Casey might have magic hands as after my first appointment I walked in with my pain feeling like a 7 and by the end of the appt I was at 2.

As an athlete, it is refreshing to work with a physical therapist who understands how the body works not only from schooling and training, but from personal experience.  Casey helps me be a healthy athlete and shows me how to incorporate small changes to my daily routine to ensure I stay healthy following treatment.

About 10 years ago I had injured my shoulder pretty seriously, but had never seen a doctor for it. After years of putting up with pain and tight back muscles, I finally decided to see a Physical Therapist. I’m an active softball player and was afraid that I would have to stop playing because of my shoulder. I saw Casey at South Burlington Physical Therapy – since she focuses on athletes and keeping them moving. She was absolutely incredible to work with! Casey has a way of explaining things so I understand them, and so I know WHY the exercises that she gives me will help. It was motivating. She noticed when I had been showing signs of improvement, and when certain exercises would uncover other small problems that we would then focus on. Ultimately, she gave me more confidence in myself, and in my shoulder, and I would recommend her to anybody who is having pain or trouble moving and wants to stay in motion! Thanks Casey!!
