Sarah Lindholm, PT, DPT Senior Physical Therapist

Like most physical therapists, I found my love for movement at a young age when I was enrolled in parks and recreational activities such as swimming, soccer and t-ball. It was gymnastics that solidified my love for movement as I found myself amazed by the way gymnasts could combine power, grace and strength to create fluidity in their movements. This also introduced me to the world of physical therapy as I had my fair share of overuse injuries that resulted in visits to all kinds of medical providers. Physical therapists stood out to me as they were able to spend the time to know and understand my injuries and get to know also me an individual. The kindness and respect I was shown made me feel heard and appreciated and my injuries resolved and I was able to return to the sport I loved. Though my gymnastics days are long behind me, this desire to have an influence on others through movement has stuck with me.

I received my bachelors degree in Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Go Bucky!) and went on to receive my Doctor of Physical Therapy and Masters of Healthcare Administration degrees from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science where my passion for the human body and movement grew even stronger. I hope to be able to provide the highest quality of care for my clients by utilizing evidence based practices but also by listening to their needs and learning about them as individuals. I love to learn about what makes a person who they are and the things they love as this can help me in my clinical decision making as a physical therapist. Overall, my goals as a physical therapist center on utilizing movement as a means to empower and instill confidence in my clients to help them return to the activities they enjoy.

Outside of physical therapy, I find the most joy in being outside and spending time in the sun playing yard games with friends and family. Having recently relocated to DC from the Milwaukee, I am excited to explore all that DC has to offer and am most looking forward to visiting the different coffee shops, playing cribbage with my husband in the many parks, as well as try out the many farmer's markets in the area. I am so looking forward to swapping the land of 10,000 lakes for the DC cherry blossoms and all that the DMV has to offer.

I am so excited to be practicing at Rose and to have the opportunity to spend one-on-one time with clients. Though I enjoy treating all parts of the body, I am most passionate about treating people who enjoy running, both as recreational hobbies and competitive endeavors. Additionally, I have a growing interest in integrating physical therapy within the multidisciplinary approach to eating disorder recovery to further empower people through movement.
