Physical Therapy in Boulder at CrossFit Sanitas

Dr. Nicole Haas truly cares about your experience in physical therapy and your ability to achieve your goals, and strives to ensure that each and every patient feels cared for and supported. She is a board certified orthopedic clinical specialist with a doctorate in physical therapy who has been practicing for more than 20 years, and is a certified yoga teacher as well. She is dedicated to helping the community understand the tipping point between health and injury, and to promoting understanding of the biomechanics of movement patterns that allow the body to participate in a balanced life.


Pretty much everything… and she uses her 20+ years of experience combined with her clinical expertise to diagnose and treat the root of the issue… instead of bandaid’ing the symptoms. Dr. Haas offers a wide range of sport-specific rehabilitation and performance programs to help athletes improve performance, recover from (and ideally prevent) injury, regardless of their sport, skill level or condition.

Physical therapy, biomechanical analysis, neuromuscular re-education and functional exercises can do wonders for re-establishing balance to lead toward better performance and a lowered chance of injury or pain.

What her patients have to say…

“Nicole is awesome. In a marketplace full of PTs I go back to her every time. I know that she’ll be able to quickly figure out what’s going on and prescribe the best course of action to fix me. I’ve always seen quick turn arounds for whatever issue I’m having. Her command of human biomechanics and her experience working with athletes is on another level. She’s the best in the business.”   – Matt H

“I absolutely love working with Nicole! I had some IT band issues and she really took the time to analyze the root of my issue and teach me the exercises I needed to get back on track. Nicole really provides the whole picture of care and is realistic about goals for rehab for both the patient and what she can do. I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone needing PT, but especially runners and athletes. She is the best and I will continue to see her as long as she is around!” Alex H

“I have been dealing with frighteningly loose ligaments in my shoulders for most of my life. I am a certified yoga instructor, avid runner, and soccer player, and the threat of a dislocated shoulder does not go well with my active lifestyle. I am beyond grateful for Nicole’s advice and new exercises. They have stayed in their sockets better than ever before. She is truly passionate about her patients and about the awesomeness of the human body! Thank you Nicole!” – Amy B

“Nicole is an amazing person as well as an amazing therapist. It’s like she has x-ray vision the way she can immediately tell what’s going on in your body – and not just the bits you’re complaining about. As much as she will focus on the main source of pain, she will do everything she can to educate you about your body as a whole and help you feel better, both in her office and when you have to go back out on the street.” – Lily Z
