Susan C Nowell   Nowell Sports Therapy

Sports Medicine Professional, Orthopedics specialty, Performance Therapy



I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy, certified both in the U.S. and in Italy. I’ve been practicing physical therapy for over a 15 years, consistently growing and evolving orthopedic, manual-therapy specialties and personal endurance training. As an academic, I presented my thesis research work at national conferences, and I initiated University collaborations with the National Abilities Center (NAC) in Utah to promote skiing events for individuals with chronic neurologic conditions.

Since my first therapy skiing endeavors, I have taken my physical therapy expertise on the road multiple times, working with elite, professional and recreational athletes competing in ultra-running events and Ironman distance triathlons. I am an avid endurance athlete and have competed in national and international distance triathlons and ultra-marathons. From being on both sides of the race support/racing spectrum, I understand how to help active individuals maximize physical fitness and racing results while minimizing the risk of injury.
