Dr. Sarah Sullivan
Owner + Chiropractor
Hi - I'm Dr. Sarah! I'm a chiropractor that is passionate about helping active individuals understand + manage their chronic hip or knee pain.
Originally I wanted to go to physical therapy school after I received my Sport + Exercise Science bachelor's degree from UCF, however my life took a turn and led me down a different path. While I was in school I started to develop debilitating headaches and neck pain from the increased sitting during class and long study hours.
It was recommended that I go see a chiropractor, and it was the best decision I made! The adjustments and therapies helped my neck pain + headaches significantly after seeking treatment consistently for a few weeks. I quickly learned that this would be an awesome way to help others heal and it's why I became a chiropractor.
Now, I combine chiropractic care with movement and exercise to get quicker + longer lasting results!

Want the full story?
From a young age, I always enjoyed playing various sports + living an active lifestyle. I even played a year of division II volleyball. However, although I was super active, I would periodically deal with severe knee pain, and in more recent years hip pain + lower back pain.
I manage a condition called Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome aka Runner's Knee, which is basically a fancy term for knee pain.
Before I was a chiropractor I was constantly dealing with severe knee pain in the front of my knee while squatting or doing lunges, and it was super frustrating because I would literally just have to stop my entire workout and either go home or do something else entirely. Not only that but I would feel it just getting up from the couch or getting out of my car.
I didn't understand how to manage it + I certainly didn't understand how to correct it with rehab exercises or mobility drills.
Fast forward to now - depending on how consistent I am with doing my exercises, I can typically do most things without dealing with the pain. Are there still days I deal with the pain? Absolutely - however, the pain is typically not as bad if I experience it and as soon as I work on certain movements and exercises the pain goes away.
I tell you all of this to not only let you know that I understand what you are dealing with, but to also leave you with some encouragement - there is a light at the end of the chronic knee or hip pain tunnel!
