Adrienne Snider


Adrienne graduated with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Washington University, one of the top 3 PT schools in the nation, where she trained in a model of treatment and assessment called the Human Movement System. This evaluation and treatment approach determines movement dysfunction and then goes further to address the bio and psychosocial factors required in order to achieve optimal tissue healing.

Adrienne is excited about treating postural dysfunction that may lead to neck, shoulder, and leg injury; acute and chronic low back pain; sports injuries especially those related to dance medicine; and hypermobility. She has personally studied dance for 20 years and utilizes her distinct understanding of movement that she gained in that time to help analyze and fine tune movement that ranges from daily activities like tying shoes to the most powerful grande jete.

When she is not in the clinic, Adrienne can be found exercising, dancing, cooking/baking new recipes, exploring new restaurants and breweries, and adventuring in the mountains with her boyfriend and their two spirited dogs, Simon and Maya. She brings her midwestern heart and values to her life in Seattle.

Happy Patients

I walked into Avant Physical Therapy nearly immobilized by pain just days before I was scheduled to go on stage and perform. From my very first appointment, Laura kept me on the long-term healing path, while managing my immediate needs as a performer. Laura's knowledge of the dancing body and her awareness of movement from a dancer's perspective make her one of the most exceptional physical therapists in Seattle.

Laura with Avant PT is the best physical therapist I know! My back was in bad shape after my first daughter was born and I had tried everything and everyone. When I met Laura she gave me a plan, was a great problem-solver (my situation was a bit of a puzzle) and I saw immediate, positive results after working with her for only a short time.

Hands down, the best PT I've ever been to. Laura is a wonderful, upbeat person and and amazing therapist, and unlike many PT's she spends the entire hour with you. She's also very good with difficult cases. I've had an ongoing back issue for several years and have tried everything. I'd pretty much given up on ever really getting better. In one month Laura helped me more than anyone else had been able to.
