Claire Albert

Physical Therapist, and Athletic Trainer

Claire Albert, PT, DPT, LAT, ATC, was first introduced to the team at Forté Sports Medicine and Orthopedics as a patient. Her journey back from dance-related injuries gave her a unique perspective and inspired her to become a physical therapist. Today, Claire helps patients get back to what they love by specializing in dance medicine and chronic pain, as well as helping military tactical athletes return to duty. In her free time, Claire enjoys tap dancing as a member of Circle City Tap Company’s professional company, fly fishing, horseback riding and hiking.

My mission is to foster independence and assist patients in taking charge of their rehabilitation. I believe this cultivates self-confidence to maintain lifelong wellness after discharge from physical therapy.
Claire Albert
I would like to express my sincere appreciation for everyone here from the ladies at the front desk to all the PTs, assistants and Drs in the back. I’ve truly enjoyed interacting with everyone. Claire is truly GIFTED and AMAZING. She’s been pivotal.
