Jimmy talked to Sarah King of Invigorate Physical Therapy & Wellness in Austin Texas. She’s a great mix of someone who knew how narrow she wanted her treatment focus to be and so open in how she finds the amazing people she gets to work with. We got into why she does what she does how she does it, and how you can apply that same model to YOUR practice! Plus as a bonus, find out what a Parkinson’s Disease Plan of Attack is, and how it focuses what she does for her patients.
I have a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas as well as a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science from Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri.
I’ve spent more than a decade in health and wellness – first as an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor and then an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. I am a Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery (PWR!) trained therapist which is an extension of the LSVT Big and Loud program for people with PD. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for the local non-profit Power for Parkinson’s who offers free fitness classes to people with PD and their care partners. I’m a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) as well as the Texas Physical Therapy Association (TPTA).
Originally from Kansas City, my husband, Matt, and I now live in Austin, Texas and have fallen deeply in love with the city’s hustle and bustle and outdoor scene. We enjoy hiking the Greenbelt, playing soccer with friends, and searching out the best cup of coffee in town.
