Meet Erika Sutton

Active Therapy Group | Owner

Dr. Erika Sutton went to Texas A&M to study veterinary medicine, but after a few biochemistry classes, and a few dog bites, she quickly changed courses. She began studying exercise biomechanics and movement patterns. Her sports background as a heptathlete and history of personal injuries helped her develop a passion for movement. She received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and completed a residency program in orthopedics and manual therapy. 


  Although Erika Sutton has always been a Texan, she moved to Waco in 2010 with the intention of only staying three years while her husband completed a job within his company. Now Waco is the only home her two daughters know. 

  She has been practicing physical therapy locally for 13 years and teaching at Baylor University for four years.  Her goal of getting back to private practice came to fruition through Active Therapy Group in 2019. 

  “Our mission is to redefined the approach of well-being, inspiring our community where movement is the medicine and age is no barrier to active life,” Erika said.

  Active Therapy Group is a collection of collaborative clinicians who strive towards serving our community by teaching each individual how to be active at any age! They aim to empower everyone that comes through the doors to learn how to “Get Active, Be Active, Live Active.” Each of the nine specialists bring a specific dynamic, knowledge and experience base to serve their patients holistically and to the best of their ability. 

“God has called me to this field and given me a love for restoration, whether physical or spiritual.”

“Our role is to help people understand their full potential and push them beyond what they think they are capable of so that they can live life to the fullest.”

“Active Therapy Group is not your everyday PT place. We strive to set the standard.”

We're so thankful for all Erika Sutton and her team are doing for the community!
