Bianca Saad

Bianca is a manual orthopedic physical therapist who created her home in Seattle after receiving her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in Southern California.  She brings a wealth of knowledge to PT including personal understanding of athletes as she was a NCAA Division I Track and Field runner and also involved in recreational tennis, soccer, and dance. For two years she worked for Nike, where she performed gait analysis and managed the store’s running club. Professionally, she morphed her understanding of running and rehabilitation into ‘Prehab of the Runner,’ a class designed to minimize running-related-injury and optimize running economy. She has also earned a Gary Gray Certification in Applied Functional Science.

Bianca enjoys treating with a range of approaches, from instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization to pain neuroscience. She experiences great satisfaction in providing exceptional care to her patients and, more importantly, empowering them with the tools they need to manage their own musculoskeletal health. She is a Certified Pelvic Health PT, with a particular interest in treating the postpartum athlete. Her future goals include board certification as a Pelvic Health specialist by the APTA.

Outside of work, Bianca enjoys running, skiing, traveling, cooking, and chasing after pup.

Happy Patients

Bianca is skilled at understanding the body's complex interactions, and what the patient wants to achieve. She was able to relieve my chronic back condition and keep it pain-free.

Paul M.

Bianca helped me with SI pain I'd had for some time, and I can't be happier with the results since seeing her. She has both the knowledge and the art. I have been able to manage my pain-free state since.

Cathleen S.

I started PT with Bianca before my rotator cuff surgery and continued with her after it. People regularly tell me they can't believe I ever had the surgery. Bianca was instrumental in my recovery.

Lisa M.

Bianca saw me for sciatic pain during my pregnancy. Due to her efforts and knowledge, she was able to eliminate my pain. She had faith I would get better when I was ready to quit.
