Sarah is a remarkably talented physical therapist. I’ve been working with her on a number of problems from elbow and neck pain to lower back issues. She not only diagnoses the root cause of the pain but also connects it to my behavior patterns and suggests ways to avoid problems in the future.
She reads me extremely well and can tell how I’m feeling the minute I walk in the door.
I have worked with a number of PT’s in the past and none of them can hold a candle to Sarah..Any time I’m inclined to skip my home exercises, I think of her and do them because I don’t want to let her down. And, inevitably I feel better physically if I stick to her program.
Sarah is also a great person who really cares about her patients.
Union PT is simply amazing. All of their workers at courteous. Working with Elisa was great! I went in with neck and back pain and I could not move. With a doctors notes I went in to Union after comparing other PT places and this place is phenomenal. Here they take the time to get to the root of the problem. I love their online appointment system too. It makes for easy scheduling. Elisa has worked magic and now I am completely free from pain. With her knowledge of how the body works, there is no other place I will go-in case I ever need a Physical therapist again.
I highly recommend this place! I’ve been working with Mitch Owens for the past few months now & my symptoms have improved, greatly. I was in a car accident a little over a year ago and had terrible headaches, neck & back pain pretty much everyday. Although the severity of my pain went down a bit with massage & chiropractic, I still had headaches everyday, until I started seeing Mitch. He is very good at listening to your concerns, giving you knowledge about why your body might be feeling that way & addressing those concerns that day. He has a very gentle & attentive technique that is very effective! Not to mention he is a riot, which all makes for a pleasant yet helpful experience!
Therapist Sarah Haran treated me for a labral tear in my hip last year when I decided to try PT as an alternative to the major surgery my doctor recommended. This was one of the best decision’s I’ve ever made regarding my health and well-being.
I walked in to her office in pain that woke me up at night and prevented me from doing the active hobbies that keep me sane. Then I spent 13 weeks working with Sarah on re-patterning my lower body movements and refining my jogging stride, plus deep tissue work at the injury site. Six months later I’m back to full-tilt on running, yoga, dancing, snowboarding, and martial arts. My leg musculature is more balanced and I have new awareness of how to stay inside a healthy range of motion in my hip socket. I haven’t had hip pain since we finished treatment.
Beyond her life-changing results, Sarah is a super smart, supportive therapist with a great bedside manner. She treated me as an intellectual peer and a partner in my rehab. She was patient with my “why” questions and always made sure I had clear instructions to take home after each appointment.
I highly recommend Sarah Haran to anyone dealing with a stubborn or mysterious injury, and anyone who wants to learn to walk, run, or compete in sports with better bio mechanics.
This is the best physical therapy office I have ever been to. Having been involved in sports my entire life, that is saying a lot.I got referred to Elisa from a spine specialist after a car accident and the resulting back injury that I couldn’t get relief from . Elisa did her own thorough evaluation and didn’t just rely on the doctor’s notes. Elisa established a personalized plan for me and for my goal of getting back into running ASAP.
Elisa is amazing. She takes the time to listen to you and explain to you what she is finding and what her specific goals are for the session. She is very hands-on and works to manipulate and target the specific problem areas of your body. Her exercises are so effective, I don’t feel like I am wasting my time doing tons of reps and not feeling any changes.
She prescribes a home exercise routine that is completely manageable. Keeping up with work and with life is hard enough as it is, but her routines fit in just fine. The exercises are all hand picked by Elisa based on what you are targeting in PT. My exercises change every week and I love it. I have never progressed so quickly with another physical therapist.
I also love that when you schedule a one-hour appointment, you get an hour with the physical therapist. Too many times I have been one of 6 or 7 patients in a large workout room while the physical therapist comes by once every 10 minutes to check on the progress I’m making with my exercises. Not here.
I am so close to running again, I can taste it. My day to day life has improved by leaps and bounds since I started at Union Physical Therapy.
I would not be enjoying my current active lifestyle and my current quality of life if it weren’t for Elisa and her incredible care. I rave about her all the time and would absolutely recommend her and the rest of the staff at Union PT to anyone.
I have been in pain for over two years from a car accident. I have tension on my neck and mid back that never went away, even after two years of massage, chiropractic, and acupuncture treatment. I was at a point where I have completely given up on all treatments and think that I would probably have to live with these pain for the rest of my life. Then I consulted with my doctor and he referred me to Mitch Owen. What was funny was, another person I know referred me to Mitch awhile back but I never went. I figured Mitch must be the best PT in Seattle so why not give it a try. After meeting Mitch for the first time, I knew I am in good hands. He is very passionate and very knowledgable about his profession. He takes the time to listen to my problems and provide me with effective treatments that triggers my pain areas. I have seen major improvements weeks after weeks. (I wish I would’ve seen him earlier). It has been three months of consistent treatment and the pain on my neck has decreased, the pain on my mid back went away. I can’t thank him enough. I am so happy to be able to do the activities I once used to, without feeling pain, for a long period of time. I think anyone who is looking for the best PT should go visit Mitch and you will understand how good it feels to no longer have to live with pain.
Last year I was diagnosed with a hip injury that is typical for ex-dancers and was told to see Sarah Haran for therapy. She is a remarkable physical therapist. Lucky for me she is an expert in treating my issue, although if I had any other issue I would want to have Sarah be the one treating it. She is extremely bright, thoughtful, and understanding and I always felt like I was in the best hands. She successfully treated my issue while answering my 1000′s questions and gave me the tools to address it throughout my life. When I completed my sessions I was actually sad because Sarah’s company is so enjoyable!
I initially visted Elisa Scherb at Union PT for a painful back condition, and after she worked with me for a few months, I was thrilled to see my back improving. I’m now able to get up in the morning without pain and can go back to all the activities I did before this happened.
Elisa took a holistic approach to my back issues–she used exercises and manipulation to figure out where the problems were coming from, and then used creative methods to treat all the side effects I was experiencing. This was also a great learning experience for me, as I learned how my movement could be adjusted and improved to ensure that I can avoid this back pain in the future.
Another important thing I noticed about Elisa and the practice they run at Union: the therapists really take time with each of their patients, and work collaboratively with them to help solve their issues. It was really refreshing to see this in practice and I honestly believe it works.
I highly recommend Mitch if you need to seek physical therapy. He is focused on getting to the root cause of the issue so that he is not just treating symptoms. He brings a very balanced approach of manual therapy and strengthening work. I’ve been to a few different PTs over the years for back and shoulder pain, and have never received such holistic and successful treatment until working with Mitch.
