Anne Diaz-Arrastia, PT, DPT

Anne is a Philadelphia transplant from Dallas, TX. She had always participated in any in season sport throughout elementary and middle school, but found her passion for track and field as a high school student-athlete, excelling in long jump and triple jump. She continued her track and field career at Washington University in St. Louis serving as the Women’s Team Captain for her sophomore, junior, and senior years, earning All-Academic Awards, and becoming a 4-time All-American in long jump, triple jump, and the pentathlon. After earning her Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology from WashU, she returned to Dallas, TX to pursue her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Texas Woman’s University. She then sought specialized training in orthopedics, evidence-based practice, and clinical reasoning skills by completing an Orthopedic Residency at Drexel University. Anne has a passion for health, wellness, and fitness education and care in community settings. She aims to practically apply evidence-based interventions in an individualized manner, meeting patients where they are along the health continuum. When not at work, she enjoys discovering new fitness classes, exploring Philly and the surrounding areas, and eating her way through the city.
