Emily Scherb- Pure Motion Physical Therapy- The Circus Doc
Dr. Emily Scherb began her training as a circus artist in 1992. She continued training, performing, and teaching as she made her way through school, always making sure she wasn’t too far from her trapeze. When she graduated with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy, Dr. Scherb knew she wanted to work with circus artists to serve the community that has been so important to her. Over the past decade of working with circus artists Emily has gained deep insight on how circus bodies work in the air and on the ground. As she has expanded her knowledge she has worked to share those gains with the community through workshops, teaching, and recently writing the first book to address the unique challenges to the aerialist’s body, Applied Anatomy of Aerial Arts.
