About the Clinic
Therapeutic Associates Medford has proudly provided therapy services to Rogue Valley residents since 1990, then known as STORM Physical Therapy. Today TAI Medford is conveniently located in the People’s Bank building, just off the South Medford I-5 exit. Our staff includes two therapists with a wide range of knowledge, experience, and expertise, ranging from Sports Medicine to balance/vestibular dysfunctions.
At Medford Physical Therapy we strive to get to know our patients. On your first visit you can expect to be taken through a detailed examination, which includes a thorough history and movement analysis screen and testing of joint mobility and muscle function. From there our skilled physical therapists will help you to develop a treatment plan to better your quality of life. Our goal is not only to treat the problem but to help you understand the problem and educate you on how to prevent it from happening in the future.

What is Manual Physical Therapy?
The term “manual therapy” refers to hands-on treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Human touch is an
essential ingredient in our treatment philosophy and approach, and for good reason. Patients respond positively to hands-on work when combined with exercise and education. This leads to faster recovery and less out-of-pocket expenses.
Manual therapy encompasses a broad group of sophisticated techniques performed by hand by uniquely trained physical therapists. These may include mobilizations or manipulations of soft tissue and skeletal joints. Manual therapy techniques aim to decrease pain and increase function. Most manual therapy training programs in the United States are four-year, post-graduate programs that emphasize clinical experience, classroom education, and extensive exams.
Why Manual Therapy?
The answer is simple – it’s proven to get you better, faster. While we always work with patients individually and only use manual therapy when appropriate, our outcome studies show better results when physical therapists have manual therapy training. This translates to fewer days off work or away from your favorite activity, and less out-of-pocket expenses.
If you have questions about manual therapy or want to learn more, ask your physical therapist.
