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.

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

Our previous post discussed how to reduce stimulation that drives a sympathetic state.  Stress can “turn on” our internal ⏰ alarm system causing hypervigilance, anxiety, and unproductive energy1.  These are incompatible with sleep and can cause problems such as difficulty falling asleep, fragmented sleep, and nightmares. Here are some strategies to help calm the body and… Read More

We previously have talked about how the key to a good night sleep is transitioning out of energized ‘sympathetic state’ (fight or flight) to a more calm ‘parasympathetic state’ (rest and digest).  Therefore, there are two major options for intervention:  1) reduce factors that cause sympathetic state, 2) increase factors that create a parasympathetic state. … Read More

Praise from our Lifestyle Athletes

After attempting to fix debilitating knee pain by stretching it out, I made an appointment with Casey. She quickly diagnosed the issue and gave me effective exercises that corrected the issue, as well as tools to resume my favorite activities pain-free – never telling me to simply stop doing something I loved. I’m happy to report months later that I am still pain-free!

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.

I began working with Casey about a year ago while I was recovering from a total knee replacement. My goal then was to return to crossfit with some confidence in my new knee. I was able to return to classes but soon suffered another setback with a torn bicep. Casey kept me focused on my recovery, slowed me down when necessary,( which was constantly) , and helped me return to a progressively more difficult exercise regiment. I am feeling better than I have in years and Casey is the main reason why. No question I had went unanswered and her many suggestions were always on point. Thanks Casey.

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.
