Her knowledge of the human body as it relates to sport combined with her technically powerful hands is the golden ticket to athletic recovery and optimal performance.
"As a former USATF All-American and ACC Champion in the shot put for Clemson University my body has been worked on by numerous practitioners. I currently compete at the national level in Highland Games and was searching for someone to work on my body and all its tightness. I was introduced to Dr Sarah and my body has never been more thankful. She possesses an extremely high level of skill set that the highest level of athlete would be fortunate to experience. Her knowledge of the human body as it relates to sport combined with her technically powerful hands is the golden ticket to athletic recovery and optimal performance. She is also one heck of an athlete which no doubt aids in her professional mastery of sports performance and recovery. Dr Sarah will be a main staple for my future competitive career. She truly is one of the best I've ever seen."
By the following week my pain was almost non-existent. You will not get this level of PT anywhere else
"I have been competitively powerlifting for about 10 years and have had to deal with multiple injuries along the way. I have had multiple experiences with traditional physical therapists, which is in a group setting with very limited 1 on 1 time. Last November at a powerlifting meet I injured my right quad/hip and for the next 8 months dealt with being in pain and discomfort all while still training. I tried multiple exercises that I got from YouTube and instagram trying to heal my injury without going to see someone. During my initial visit with Sarah she determined pain was from my right glute was causing my hip to shift out of place. I was given a bunch of different rehab exercises and by the following week my pain was almost nonexistent. Sarah also looked over my form with squat, bench, and deadlift and gave me different cues to work on so my form was as efficient as possible. You will not get this level of physical therapy anywhere else and Sarah will get you back to performing your sport or hobby pain-free. I would recommend Sarah for anybody who is looking to fix an injury without surgery."
She helped me a lot on just the first visit. My lower back pain has been completely gone since, and I was able to squat again after 7-8 months from my injury.
"I've been to a few physical therapy places in the past and they helped with my lower back pain but it was only temporary, and it came back. A friend of mine referred me to Sarah, and so I went to her and explained my issue. I'll be honest, she helped me a lot on just the first visit. My lower back pain has been completely gone since, and I was able to squat again after 7-8 months from my injury. She knows what she's doing and what she talks about and she also educates you on the issues that you have. She's super friendly and genuine, and I would 1000% recommend going to her if you're dealing with any pain whether it's lower back pain, upper back pain, shoulder pain, wrist pain, etc."
Incredibly grateful for the exceptional care and expertise.
"I recently had the pleasure of working with Sarah for my hamstring injury and I am incredibly grateful for the exceptional care and expertise she provided throughout the entire rehab process. Throughout my treatment Sarah demonstrated an impressive depth of knowledge and skill. She worked with me on a personalized treatment plan that targeted my specific needs, focusing on strengthening exercises and manual therapy techniques that directly addressed my issues. She’s the best"
She empowers individuals to reach their fullest potential.
"Sarah has been a game-changer for me and my weightlifting progress. Her expertise and genuine care have helped me overcome past weightlifting injuries and unlock new levels of strength. Her attention to detail is impeccable, and her dedication to her clients is unmatched. She truly cares about our progress and goes above and beyond to ensure personalized care. I can't recommend Sarah enough - she is an exceptional physical therapist who empowers individuals to reach their fullest potential."
Individualized and quality therapy.
"Dr. Sarah is excellent. She is knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. Her body tempering technique is like a deep massage to loosen tight muscles after my exercise program. She suggested exercises to ease my knee discomfort, demonstrated the proper way of doing them, and followed up to see how I am progressing on my own. I highly recommend her service to anyone who is looking for individualized and quality therapy."

She combines her skills with your needs and utilizes her methods in a very laid back environment to attend your needs. Dr. Barbosa is amazing and I highly recommend her for any Physical Therapy problems or needs!"
She has the knowledge and the experience to help other weightlifters.
"Sarah is a fantastic physical therapist! I am a avid weightlifter I've seen Sarah for a wide range of injuries. She not only will treat the area she will also help you figure out what muscles need to be stronger to relieve pain. Sarah is also a weightlifter herself so she has the knowledge and the experience to help other weightlifters she knows the sport and knows the injuries. All around I would highly recommend Sarah for anyone dealing with pain & injuries."
Sarah is absolutely the best PT I have ever worked with.
"Sarah is absolutely the best PT I have ever worked with. She was able to help me with a hip pain that I had for more than a year and prevented me from progressing with my training. Her approach is personal and unique - in addition to the manual therapy and the prescribed exercises, her recommendations helped me a lot with my training."
Sarah's approach of listening and taking in your concerns.. is bar none.
"I have nothing but the highest praise for Sarah. I never had my initial injury, many years ago, diagnosed. This eventually led me to need surgery. It also created extensive issues with surrounding muscles and tendons. Sarah’s approach of listening and taking in your concerns, working on your trouble areas, and giving you the information/exercises you need to strengthen your weaknesses is bar none. With her background as a gymnast and power lifter, her knowledge in her profession, and especially her genuine care to help you, she will always be my go to when I’m in need. I highly recommend anyone to reach out to her as well."
Sarah's care and professionalism are top notch.
"I have had a ton of body work done in my life and Dr. Barbosa instantly stood out to me. She cared to listen to my concerns way before touching me. Her trigger point bodywork was incredible and after just two sessions, I feel a huge difference in mobility, pain, and connection to my back. Sarah's care and professionalism are top notch and I'm stoked to continue with her."
