Kristen Sanchez PT, DPT -Doctor of Physical Therapy

Kristen Sanchez joined Cascade Sports in 2016 as a student and transitioned to a full time staff therapist in 2017. She graduated from California Polytechnic School with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology. She then went on to receive her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in Physical Therapy from University of Colorado Denver.

Kristen is originally from California, but moved to Colorado to attend school and be closer to some of her family. Her background as a competitive gymnast and then gymnastics coach pushed her to learn more about injury prevention and management. In 2013 Kristen took an interest in CrossFit, and continues to use that as her primary activity of choice during the week. On the weekends you can find her snowboarding, skiing, doing yoga, or hiking depending on the season.

Her goals as a provider are to give each patient power and knowledge over their own body. Because of her background she particularly enjoys working with gymnast and CrossFit athletes to give them the best options to modify their activity and return to their sport pain-free.  She loves to learn and is working towards her Orthopedic Specialist board certification.
