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

When the calendar year comes to a close, we often find ourselves physically and mentally depleted from the holidays and the end-of-the-year rush. It’s no wonder that three of the most common self-improvement resolutions uttered as the clock strikes midnight are: eat more healthily, lose weight and commit to a regular exercise program. January is… Read More

And just like that, another 4 weeks has flown by.   Breast milk mess is more contained.  You begin to adjust to a constantly varied sleeping pattern. And, activities that used to be easy are still surprisingly hard.  I coach a Zoom Class called Longevity.  It is geared towards the senior population.  I couldn’t demonstrate the exercises I was asking them to do (granted, they are beast, and… Read More

Praise from our Lifestyle Athletes

When my primary physician insisted that I go to Physical therapy for a problem, I was skeptical.  Casey assessed my problem and came up with a plan to fix my condition.  Her professional, but friendly attitude contributed to an effective program of rehabilitation and the healing of my problem.  I would definitely seek her help again if I developed future problems requiring physical therapy.

I found Casey on Clinical Athlete, as I was looking for a DPT that would have a competitive athlete’s perspective on what injury recovery should look like, and for someone who would challenge me beyond the generic physical therapy treatment I’ve had in the past.  She’s pushed me to succeed, challenging me to get well outside of my comfort zone, and her innovative approach to identifying and addressing problems has been enlightening.  I’ve neglected what I believed to be minor facets of my physical health for years, accepting pain as the cost of a demanding physical fitness regimen. Thankfully, Casey knows better.  As just one example, Casey made some tweaks to my squat form, and I’m hitting new PRs at the age of 37, pain free, after being told by a knee surgeon that I should give it all up.  Casey’s the type of doc that will understand your desire to constantly challenge yourself and strive to explore your full potential.  I can’t recommend her highly enough.

After dealing with hip pain from working to hard for a older body I turned to Casey and Henry at SBPT. Casey completed my evaluation and told me Henry would be perfect fit for me. She was right on the money. After about seven sessions Henry was able to train me into using my body in different ways for my job. My job requires loading packages into trucks for 4 hours a day, 1000 pieces and from 1-150 pounds. Every session we worked on something new that would help do my job pain free. If I could not get a certain exercise Henry would make one little adjustment and I was able to move on. The things we worked on in the clinic also transferred into every day living. I stand straighter, walked better and breath better. I am pain free months later and I have Henry to thank for it.

Having my best morning on this July 4th vacation. Want to give you a testimonial that you may or may not choose to use. Stopping migraine pain is a big deal though.

While visiting Burlington VT over the 4th July I developed a migraine, pain cycled from dull to intense with visual disturbances and light sensitivity. It was destroying my vacation. I have never tried dry needling or any treatment related to it and was even a little skeptical. It was a bad one and I knew it could extend into weeks. I’ve been through this before. I was crushed that my vacation was being destroyed so asked if Casey could see me. I was willing to try anything outside of drugs that often do not stop my migraine, just mute it and mute my senses too.

Casey made a very detailed assessment and is obviously well versed in approaching someone in pain. I had a short treatment on key spots she selected. I felt oddly euphoric immediately after the treatment, then predictably sleepy. I took a two hour nap and awoke to my migraine cycle being broken. My neck is still tender on one side and I am going in this morning before I leave for another treatment.

I wish I lived nearby because my experience with Casey, dry needling, and migraine has been sort of miraculous. I hope my experience helps someone else out there suffering.
