Emily Brown, DPT

Emily Brown PT, DPT grew up in Winthrop, WA. Winthrop is a small community much like that of Crested Butte. Emily grew to love the outdoors and developed into a competitive alpine ski racer moving her to Steamboat Springs, CO for high school. Injuries she encountered during her racing career inspired her to become a physical therapist. She experienced firsthand how beneficial and necessary the rehabilitation process was to promptly return her to competition.

Emily received her Bachelors of Science degree in Exercise and Sport Science at the University of Utah in 2013. She went on to complete her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 2017. Since graduation, Emily has enjoyed continuing to advance her treatment techniques training with the Institute of Physical Art which teaches Functional Manual Therapy. She enjoys working with both orthopedic and neurological patients. She recently took a dry needling course.

When Emily is not in the clinic she can likely be found in the outdoors skiing, biking or hiking with her husband Dylan and miniature Australia Shepard, Teo.
