Dr. Sarah H. Stuhr, PT, DPT, FAAOMPT has over nine years of experience working as a high level orthopedic physical therapist. Sarah has worked in a variety of patient settings in multiple states, with significantly diverse cultural and socio-economic populations.

Outside of direct patient care, Dr. Stuhr serves as Adjunct Faculty at Pacific University, assisting primarily with Orthopedics and special topics for graduate DPT students. She also serves as a TMD content expert in George Fox University’s graduate DPT program and University of Montana’s post-graduate OMPT Residency lecture series.
