About Sarah Burnett

 

BA, Dance – University of Alabama

Doctorate of Physical Therapy – Sacred Heart University

Sarah, a Franklin, TN Native, knew she wanted to go into physical therapy after having foot surgery in 7th grade. Then after injuring her back, she was on the fast track to PT school. She headed north to Sacred Heart University in Connecticut to receive her Doctorate in Physical Therapy. The north was too cold for her, so she decided to move home and pursue her PT career here in Tennessee.

She had foot surgery breaking her foot multiple times. Being a dancer, she wanted to gain strength to return to ballet and start wearing pointe shoes. She started physical therapy and noticed that she saw her therapist and dance teacher more than her own family. From her time spent with her physical therapist, she realized the impact she could have on helping patients achieve their goals and return to what they love.

PHYSICAL THERAPY PHILOSOPHY

Work hard, play harder. There is a lot of hard work that goes into physical therapy, but we like to have fun while doing it!

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN WORKING WITH SARAH

We like to have fun here, but you need to work hard so that your goals can be achieved. We want to get you back to what it is you love without pain.

Being a patient at physical therapy for three different surgeries gives me an understanding of how my patients feel. I can truly say, “I have been there!” I hope that makes my patients trust me to help them achieve their goals.

HER GREATEST SUCCESS

I do have a small bias. While in Lexington, Kentucky, I had a patient who tore her ACL whose goal was to return to her dance team. She was distraught and thought returning to dance was impossible. After many sessions of hard work, she was able to return to the dance team. She even became the captain of the team and was front and center during the halftime show this past fall. I was so proud of all her hard work!
