Therapists

Our physical therapists are fully licensed by the State of Oregon.
Each pursues continuing education to learn advanced physical
therapy techniques.

Physical Therapists are specifically trained in physiology and
anatomy and understand how movement, posture, and function
affect wellness. Physical Therapists may become certified in
manual therapy by enrolling in 3-4 year post-graduate level
course work and clinical experiences.

Our highly trained professionals have strong backgrounds and
extensive education in specialty areas. As a team, we draw from
each other’s knowledge and expertise to design the most
effective course of treatment for each patient.
