Resident Sue Dodge has recently taken over ownership of South Burlington based Poulin Performance and is launching Peak Physical Therapy Sports and Performance Center, located at 21 Gregory Drive.
Dodge, who is excited to start this new adventure, says “Life is an athletic event and we all deserve to be peak performers. As a veteran runner and an experienced physical therapist I know the combination of skills it takes to energize people to bring out the best of their abilities.”
Poulin Performance has long been known for their work in Postural Restoration, Functional Training and Performance Training. In mid October, Peak Performance will launch an integrative wellness center, offering physical therapy in a whole new way. The focus will be on rehabilitative and habilitative therapy, meaning helping the client achieve their full potential. Their goal is to enhance performance, health and fitness for clients, whether you are an elite athlete, a weekend warrior or corporate executive.
Dodge is a skillful physical therapist as well as a passionate runner and running coach. She notes “As a physical therapist I am fascinated by the potential the human body holds. Helping all of my clients reach their peak performance potential energizes my practice.” She has been in practice in Vermont for 30 years, most recently at Fletcher Allen Hospital.
Peak Performance offers an integrative approach to care that will include physical therapy, performance training, nutritional counseling with Whole Health Nutrition and massage therapy.
Dodge graduated from the University of Vermont in 1982 with a B.S. in Physical Therapy. She has practiced in a wide variety of settings including previously owning and operating her own sports medicine and orthopedic physical therapy practice in Lyndonville, VT. She is currently enrolled in a Masters of Health Care Administration program.
