Every person has a unique story and situation. My aim in working with you is to help you capture your narrative while developing an understanding of your ecosystem, available resources, and motivation to train. Only then can I troubleshoot with you to figure out how to optimize your environment, habits, and systems to bring about meaningful change in an autonomous manner. My promise is to provide you with unparalleled care while positioning you for a safe, full, and timely return to sport at or above your prior status. Are you ready?
If you live in the greater Seattle area and are sidelined from training due to pain or injury, let's connect in person. I'll help you re-conceptualize your situation and develop a customized plan to get you back to consistent and healthy training in a timely and cost-effective manner that is free of pills injectables, and surgery.
Every sport has a unique set of performance demands and associated injury patterns. For runners, the vast majority of injuries and complaints tend to affect the lower half of the body, especially at the level of the knee and below. In terms of cycling, neck and low back complaints are commonplace as well as upper body issues stemming from potential trauma. In the case of swimming, the shoulder is the primary region afflicted by pain & pathology. As a physical therapist, I work tirelessly to help endurance athletes struggling with pain and dysfunction through a systems based approach while approaching every athlete from a head to toe perspective.

DOES ZEREN PT TAKE MY INSURANCE?
Zeren PT is an out of network provider, which means that we do not directly accept insurance. One can easily determine their out of network physical therapy benefits, by calling the number on the back of your insurance card. Oftentimes, your insurance company will reimburse you for some if not all of your PT services especially if you have a PPO plan or health savings account (HSA). Following each appointment, we will give you an itemized receipt with all of the information needed to get reimbursed. To help demystify this process we've attached a simple worksheet at the bottom of this page to ensure you obtain all of the necessary information. Please contact us if you have any additional questions or concerns.
WHY OUT OF NETWORK?
The traditional insurance model prevents us from treating you in the best possible manner. We feel that you deserve more than this and want to be in the best position to deliver unmatched care in a personalized manner. Ultimately, it will lead to less visits, better outcomes, and reduced spending on co-pays and unnecessary visits. Whereas most PT clinics see clients 2-3x/wk, we usually see you 1x/wk and make it a point to ensure that you are staying on track outside of PT through giving you the necessary resources to learn how to manage your situation with confidence and autonomy. Below is a worksheet to help guide you through the process.
WHat should I wear to my appointments?
Shorts, t-shirt or sports bra, and your preferred running or training shoes.
