Reno physical therapist, Sarah Martinez, DPT specializes in working with prenatal women to prepare for delivery, and postpartum women to recover after childbirth. Her work in prenatal and postpartum physical therapy helps ease discomfort in pregnancy and aid in delivery, and helps moms rebuild their pelvic floor, recover from diastasis recti, or rehabilitate their hips and spine after baby comes.
Sarah is passionate about helping her patients heal so they can get back to the activities they enjoy. Sarah works with patients using manual therapy for injury or post-surgery recovery, and incorporates functional exercises they can do in-clinic or at home on their own between sessions.
Prior to joining Battle Born Health, Sarah provided physical therapy services to Elko and other rural areas of northern Nevada. She worked with many patients who were minors, ranchers and laborers who had significant physical demands or work-related injuries. She helped patients build strength and mobility to heal fully and get back to work and everyday activities.
Sarah graduated from the University of Nevada Reno with a Bachelor of Science in Health Ecology and went on to achieve her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of the Pacific.
When she is not working with physical therapy patients, you can find Sarah enjoying yoga, HIIT and circuit training, and running. She has participated in multiple half marathons and numerous 5Ks and 10Ks. She is also married and a mom of two and enjoys spending time with her family and her two dogs.
