Dr. Sarah earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2007 from Northeastern University and has over 10 years of experience as a physical therapist. She also earned her Master of Science in physical therapy and a Bachelor of Science in rehabilitation science from Northeastern University. Sarah decided to study physical therapy after experiencing a devastating motor vehicle accident in high school. She sustained several injuries in the accident including a traumatic brain injury with retro and anterograde amnesia, a shattered femur and patella at the left knee joint, seatbelt and airbag injuries, and multiple fractures in her dominant hand. Initially, her treatment focused on restoring function to the knee and hand and her brain injury was largely ignored. It seemed that the doctors and physical therapists she saw at the time did not really have the knowledge to effectively address the brain injury. When she was able to walk again, her treatment was considered a success and she was discharged. However, years later she continued to experience symptoms ranging from insomnia and mood swings to gut issues and brain fog. Her issues with word retrieval were some of the hardest to deal with. She did not realize at the time that much of what she was dealing with was actually related to her brain injury. It took becoming a physical therapist herself and taking the initiative to study post-concussion syndrome independently and through continuing education courses for Sarah to gain the knowledge she needed to help not only herself but her clients going through the same thing. Post-concussion syndrome is now one of the things Sarah specializes in. www.bodyandmindpt.com Brought to you by: Integrated Brain Centers
