Carrie Hall

Carrie Hall, PT, MHS has been a physical therapist since 1983. She earned her undergraduate degree from Saint Louis University and graduate degree from Washington University in Saint Louis (WUSTL).

Carrie founded Movement Systems Physical Therapy (MSPT) 1995. Her mission/vision was to build a clinical practice where she could implement her philosophical approach toward diagnosis and treatment of movement system impairment (MSI) syndromes. Carrie’s background in the MSI approach stemmed from her longtime mentor, Shirley Sahrmann, PT, Phd, FAPTA. Carrie met Dr. Sahrmann while working at Barnes Hospital and WUSTL in St. Louis over 30 years ago. She became an advocate and instructor of Dr. Sahrmann’s theories, teaching well over 200 courses nationally and internationally.   MSPT’s fundamental approach toward physical therapy diagnosis and treatment is largely based upon Dr. Sahrmann’s theories. Over the years, she has been joined by several highly skilled physical therapists personally mentored by Carrie and the faculty at WUSTL, but also bringing their individual expertise to the clinic. At MSPT, our clinicians work side by side with the administrative staff to ensure your customer service experience is exemplary from your first phone conversation to your final visit at the clinic.

In addition to her clinical practice and continuing education teaching, Carrie has served on several faculties including WUSTL, Northwestern University in Chicago, and University of Washington here in Seattle. Her role as University instructor motivated her to take on lead authorship of Therapeutic Exercise: Moving Toward Function, now in writing for its 4th edition. This text is widely used in Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) programs in both the U.S. and abroad. She also serves on the Board of Directors of Physical Therapy Association of Washington, Great West Region Washington Advisory Board for the Arthritis Foundation, and Committee for the Seattle Pediatric/Adolescent Sports Medicine Interest Group/Hip Task Force.

In Carrie’s spare time she is busy taking care of her home and raising her 3 daughters; engaging in community philanthropies, gardening, cooking, entertaining, and staying fit with running, biking, hiking, skiing, and strength training. She strives for a balanced lifestyle fulfilling career, family, social, and personal goals.
