SARA HIETER, DPT
(Doctor of Physical Therapy)
With her lifelong interest in science and a restless desire to learn, Sara Hieter astutely chose physical therapy as her career. Sara’s academic foundation in physics,
biomechanics and anatomy is put to good use helping patients return to their functional goals from competitive sport to simply walking to the mailbox. Sara especially enjoys the variety that her
patients bring and knows that, as a physical therapist, she’ll never have a dull day!
Sara graduated from Gaston High School and earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Oregon State University. She did postgraduate work at Pacific University, where she was awarded her Doctor
of Physical Therapy. Sara has a Level 1 certification in manual therapy from the North American Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT) and is working toward Level 2. She is also pursuing
continuing education coursework in temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ) and is interested in working with athletes and neurological injuries in addition to traditional orthopedic patients.
Sara is happily married to her middle-school sweetheart and might be found running, cooking or traveling when she’s not helping patients.
