Sallie received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ).  Additionally, she has a Master’s of Arts and Teaching from the University of Vermont with a dual focus in Sports and Nutrition Education.  She is a former lecturer on Gynopathology at UMDNJ.  She is certified in New Jersey by the National Athletic Trainer’s Association as a Certified Athletic Trainer and has worked with many professional sports teams and Division I universities.  Prior to opening her own practice, Dr. Sarrel worked with a variety of populations ranging from athletes to children with neurodevelopmental disorders.

As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Sallie is trained in a wide range of physical therapy techniques.  She specializes in internal and external pelvic mobilization, myofascial release, cranial sacral and visceral manipulation, having trained at the Upledger Institute and with Jean Pierre Barral. She believes in balancing the body’s muscles, bones, and nerves to help treat pain disorders.  Her extensive knowledge of these techniques allows her to formulate a plan uniquely designed for each patient.   Her work in the treatment of endometriosis and dyspareunia is unparalled, with support from the Endometriosis Foundation of America (EFA) and the Endometriosis Research Center (ERC).  Recent data linking pelvic and jaw pain makes her world-renowned experience in treating temporal-mandibular joint dysfunction syndrome (TMJ) an important part of her practice as well.

World Renowned for her program to treat endometriosis pain, Sallie was among the first physical therapist to be invited to teach in China. She also has spoke at numerous surgical conferences and stresses the message that women
can live better lives with endometriosis. She is a strong believer in empowerment over your pain. 

Dr. Sarrel is a Pilates Academy International certified instructor as well as a certified pre and postnatal pilates specialist through The Center for Women’s Fitness.  Since movement is a crucial component of neuroplasticity, helping the body reorganize to combat pain, Sallie utilizes customized pilates programs extensively.  These innovative exercise routines are designed to suit each patient’s specific needs, help free the body from old patterns, and create new pain-free movement.  Her work as a movement therapist is crucial to conditioning the body prior to surgery and for regaining strength and endurance post-operatively.

 Sallie’s reality of endometriosis is shared on her critically acclaimed blog, “Sallie Speaks”.  For the convenience of her patients, Sallie has offices in both New York and New Jersey.
