Arlington Occupational Therapists

Danette Stewart, MOT, OTR, CHT

I have been in practice for 26 years, the last 6 years here with Arlington Orthopedic Associates. I received my certification in hand therapy(CHT), which is a board certification in the upper quadrant (cervical, thoracic, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand) in 2002.
I have treated primarily in outpatient sports medicine and rehabilitation facilities, both hospital based and physician owned. My first several years in practice I had a heavy focus in work hardening/conditioning and job site return to work evaluations. The past 10-12 years has been a focus in outpatient sports medicine and rehabilitation for wound care, hand, wrist and shoulder, with shoulder being my desired specialty.

Sarah Heid MOT, OTR

I have been in practice for 2 years, graduating from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in 2016. Through my clinic rotations, I found that my passion is in outpatient orthopedics and the treatment of hands and upper extremity injuries. I played volleyball and was a swimmer from an early age and continue to be an avid snowboarder. My interest is in treating and becoming more involved in upper extremity screening and treatment of injuries in athletes.
I love being outdoors and playing with my dogs. I am not a fan of Texas summers and prefer to either be in the pool or somewhere in the mountains of Colorado. I have grown up snowboarding and love to go as often as possible. I am also learning to love the ranch life since I married into a ranching family.
