After the birth of her first daughter, it was through her own difficult breastfeeding journey that Sarah Curtis, D.O. came to deeply appreciate the effects of structure and function, and how osteopathy and other tools can play a vital role. Dr. Curtis began to intensely study breastfeeding physiology, and applied it to her expanding knowledge of structure (anatomy) and function, in the newborn period and beyond. Dr. Curtis has experience treating patients in all stages of life: from minutes after birth to minutes before death. Dr. Curtis has an interest in applying OMT in the breastfeeding dyad, pregnancy-related conditions, a variety of pediatric cases such as plagiocephaly, autism, ADHD, neurodevelopmental disorders, in addition to migraines and sports injuries. The goal is restoring structure, so that the person may develop and function optimally.
Dr. Curtis found her way to osteopathy through an interesting path. During her undergraduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin, she spent months in Mexico studying medical Spanish, taking medical school classes, and shadowing in a hospital and public health clinic. She was fascinated how, in a hospital where few luxuries were provided, the young physicians always made time to physically touch their patients. She noticed how this simple gesture affected the patients. After commenting about this to her fellow student, this student asked, “haven’t you heard about osteopathic physicians?” That evening, Dr. Curtis spent ten pesos in the internet café researching all she could about D.O.s, and then she decided to apply solely to osteopathic medical schools. During her time at the University of North Texas Health Science Center Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, she pursued an additional year in a predoctoral fellowship in osteopathic manipulative medicine. This gave her the opportunity to pursue research, study osteopathy at a deeper level, and take a variety of courses from renowned physicians practicing osteopathy. After toiling with the idea of pursuing family medicine or obstetrics and gynecology, it was a moment of feeling overwhelmed yet inspired during her second 40-hour introductory cranial course where she solidified her desire to pursue neuromusculoskeletal medicine/ osteopathic manipulative medicine residency training. She and her new fiancé packed up their dog and two cats and moved to New York City, where Dr. Curtis completed a 3-year residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx. In residency, Dr. Curtis was fascinated with treating the newborn babies and postpartum mothers. She also received training in treating pregnant patients and pediatric patients both in an inpatient and outpatient setting, as well as a multitude of other patients and conditions.
Dr. Curtis is board certified and joins OIM after several years working in academics, at the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine and at Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine, in Parker, Colorado, where she continues to serve as adjunct professor.
Dr. Curtis enjoys her time being outside in the beautiful Colorado sunshine with her husband, two daughters, dog, and two cats.
