_Dr Bennett Headshot-Empty (1)

Sarah has been serving as a physical therapist in Olympia, Washington for the past 11 years. She enjoyed growing up in Puyallup, Washington and staying close to family while obtaining her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from University of Puget Sound in 2010. Working for a hospital system has allowed Sarah to provide physical therapy in a variety of settings including outpatient, intensive inpatient, and acute care rehabilitation. Her inpatient rehabilitation experience has grown her passion for optimizing patient mobility following stroke, traumatic brain injury, spine surgeries, and other neurologic diseases and events. Her acute care hospital training has given Sarah exposure to multi-trauma injuries due to falls and accidents, post-surgical needs, complex medical conditions, frail and critically-ill patients. She looks forward to helping individuals maximize their mobility both in their home and community by providing individualized skilled fall risk assessments, balance and gait training, promotion of physical activity and wellness, pain reduction, and functional strengthening.  Sarah continues to enjoy part time work at the hospital, spending time with family, seeing her two children grow, cooking, gardening, and being active outdoors.

OUR MISSION

Physical Therapy (PT) Empowered focuses on providing a life transformation experience through a holistic care approach; we go beyond traditional physical therapy standards to empower the patient to reach their fullest potential.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS HAVE TO SAY

Brandon is consistently and consummately professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. Highly recommended. He worked for several months with my wife and I both coming into our home weekly (her for a knee issue, me in rehabbing after surgery to reattach my torn bicep tendon). My standards are high. I offer this recommendation as someone who has worked with a dozen good PTs over the years (this was my fifth orthopedic surgery and I do Olympic Weightlifting and other athletic activities), as someone who has held multiple certifications as a personal trainer and still a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) who has previously worked with many Olympic and Professional athletes, and has spent the last ten years as a full time Executive Coach.

Sarah Bennet has been my PT as I am recovering from a prosthetic fracture of my right femur. She is an exceptional therapist who visits me weekly in my home. We work together to solve my issues such as climbing stairs, adjusting the car seat for optimum comfort, improving and strengthening my walking and getting me ready for hiking and using treking poles. Sarah is a great coach encouraging me all along the way to recovery. She is extremely knowledgeable ,professional, creative and fun! I look forward to our visits and would highly recommend her to anyone.

I've worked in the medical field for many years and had my fair share of personal experiences, both positive and negative, with medical professionals and physicians. I'm so happy that my first experience with physical therapy was with Brandon. I really appreciated his knowledge and expertise as well as his kind approach. Working with him was definitely a positive experience. It was very helpful that he could come to our home as well. I highly recommend Brandon to anyone needing PT.

We are so thankful to have found Brandon and his practice, to aid my teenage daughter in her ACL reconstruction recovery, and her return to soccer. He is extremely knowledgeable, and very professional. He quickly identified some problem areas and started her on a program that will serve her for the rest of her life to prevent future injuries. She does her muscle-building intense sport rehab in a different facility, and we supplement with Brandon' expertise for core stability, re-training her hamstrings, and re-alignment of her hips- all underlying issues that most likely lead to injury and can help prevent other injuries in her future. I feel her rehab would not have been holistic and well-rounded if we had only concentrated on rebuilding her leg muscle.  Brandon was the missing piece, and is progressing my daughter to a fuller, stronger, more confident complete recovery. We will continue to see Brandon to keep her healthy. And with teenage daughters, it's important to note his knowledge and professionalism and engaging personality makes my daughter extremely comfortable and at ease. You can tell he loves what he does, and keeps up with all the latest techniques and developments in the field of physical therapy. So happy to have found him! He came highly recommended, and it's easy to tell why!

My old personal trainer referred me to Brandon when I told her that I had been experiencing back/pelvis pain 24/7 - for several months. Through his unique approach, Brandon helped me to re-educate and re-align my body, ultimately breaking the pain cycle. He is a knowledgeable and gifted practitioner. I will be forever grateful for his work and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking physical therapy.
