About Us

Resilience RX was founded on the belief that life should be experienced to the fullest and that pain, injury, or mobility limitations should not stand in the way of joy, love, and fulfillment.

The Resilience Promise

We will do everything in our power to resolve your discomfort. In the rare case we cannot, we will send you to someone who we believe can.We will only tell you to stop doing something as a last resort. In some situations, it is necessary to temporarily modify or reduce the volume of a particular activity. However, our goal is to help you do as much as possible of what you love while letting your injury heal.We will be honest about the likelihood of your pain resolving with conservative management. If your best option is surgery, we will tell you on day one.

Resilience RX, Our Story

Hi, Dr. Sarah Sawall here. I believe it’s important to know your healthcare providers on a personal and professional basis, so I want to share with you why I started Resilience RX.

At one point in my career I was an Olympic-hopeful speed skater. Early on, speed skating was fun and exciting, but over time it turned into something to endure as I suffered through numerous injuries. It got to the point where I struggled through pain every time I stepped on the ice. No matter how many physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, and orthopedic doctors I saw, I never found lasting relief.

Eventually, I quit competing. The discomfort and pain from doing what I loved wasn’t worth it to me anymore. I was tired of being told “rest and it should get better” or receiving hands-on care that didn’t have long-term results.

I knew there had to be an answer beyond “if it hurts, don’t do it.” There had to be a way to do what I loved without constant pain. My struggles motivated me to learn how to help those in similar situations.

After graduation, I started working as a physical therapist in a hospital. I saw firsthand how our current healthcare system operates in the best interest of shareholders and insurance companies – not the patient. This struck a chord inside me that I couldn’t shake.

I wanted to help individuals overcome their pain and reach their full potential, but I found more barriers than I did opportunities. Because of this, I started Resilience RX while working at the hospital.

As things picked up, I transitioned to working fully for myself. After two years, Resilience RX grew enough to necessitate moving to a new location. And, shortly after that, Dr. Emily was hired.

Since starting Resilience RX, I have found immense fulfillment giving people excellent care, seeing their changed lives, and developing relationships with those I serve. I have also been rewarded with allowing another healthcare provider to experience this same job satisfaction.

At Resilience RX, our goal is to become an exceptional healthcare providers and help active individuals and athletes of all ages do what they love without pain. If that sounds like it would be a good fit for you, click below to book a visit today.
