Owner & Physical Therapist

Dr. Sarah Laudone, DPT, OCS, CMTPT

With 11 years of outpatient physical therapy experience, Sarah Laudone has dedicated her career to improving the quality of life for her patients. She graduated from Franklin Pierce University in 2011 with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy. She received her Bachelor of Science in exercise science at Rhode Island College in 2008, where she also played point guard on the varsity basketball team. Since graduating from college, Sarah’s continued her passion for learning and growing in the field of physical therapy. She’s also developed a passion for golf, which has led to her obtaining a Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certification – the inspiration behind her business.

Sarah prides herself on providing individualized patient care, emphasizing manual treatment, and focusing on functional outcomes rather than your typical cookie-cutter approach to physical therapy. Sessions are created with a full-body focus and centered around your goals.
