“I believe physical therapy is more than assisting others through movement, but empowering others through movement.”
As an orthopedic physical therapist and pelvic therapist, Ms. Tiffany provides treatment for all orthopedic conditions, with specialized training in both men’s and women’s pelvic health.

Sarah Tiffany’s roots run deep in Corvallis. Her grandfather was an OSU Alumnus, and her dad was born in Corvallis. Ms. Tiffany grew up in Spokane, Washington, where she finished her undergraduate degree at Washington State University. She later moved to Oregon to complete physical therapy school at Pacific University. She’s come back to her roots in Corvallis and looks forward to establishing herself in the community with her fiancé.
Ms. Tiffany always had a passion for healthcare and engineering. Physical therapy turned out to be the perfect blend for her as she can care for others while also having the challenge of figuring out what is causing people pain. She also has a passion for helping people heal from sexual trauma, so it was a natural fit for her to specialize in pelvic health. In her years of experience as a pelvic floor specialist, she has enjoyed the wide variety of people she has had the opportunity to serve. She is trained in both men’s and women’s pelvic health and has specific training in trauma-informed care, postnatal rehabilitative care, and rehabilitative ultrasound imaging.
Ms. Tiffany describes her approach to care as a team approach combined with a holistic approach. Her patients can expect that she will equip them with tools to help them recover and empower them. “My treatment approach is heavy in education so my patients can leave knowing why their body is reacting the way it is and having the tools to help meet their goals,” said Ms. Tiffany. Her patients describe her as compassionate, knowledgeable, and quick to listen.
When asked to provide an example of helping a patient that made her particularly proud or had special meaning, Ms. Tiffany provided two great examples:
• “A patient came to me who wanted to have a child but had not been able to have intercourse for seven years due to it being too painful. She was nervous about starting treatment but was willing to try whatever it took to be able to have a kid. Then one day, when asked how her symptoms were coming along, she got a big smile on her face and announced that she was pregnant! Meeting her child afterward was one of the biggest joys that this job has brought.”
• “A gentleman who was diagnosed with prostate cancer came to me. This gentleman had seen no shortage of horrors, having served in the military for many years. After already having been through so much, he was anxious to go through with the cancer treatment. I helped rehabilitate him before and after the prostatectomy. Soon after the procedure, he gained full continence, had no pain, and returned fully to his previous lifestyle. This story stands out because he came back later thanking me for being there during one of the scariest moments in his life. I got to be the one to help equip and empower him through the process, be his cheerleader, and also be a listening ear.”
Outside of her practice, Ms. Tiffany enjoys hiking, backpacking, trail running, and jigsaw puzzles, especially when she can have friends and family join her.
