About the Clinic
If you live in the Spokane area and are in pain, recovering from an injury or surgery, or just want to improve your health and performance and prevent future medical problems, we’re here to help you. Our experienced and caring physical therapists have specialty certification in orthopedic manual therapy. This allows them to more accurately diagnose and treat all of your musculoskeletal issues and get you feeling better faster. Our goal is to enhance your function so you can experience the best physical health life can offer.
We opened our physical therapist-owned private practice in the summer of 2011. We are conveniently located across from the WSU/EWU Riverpoint campus just east of downtown, with easy access from North Spokane, South Hill, Spokane Valley, and I-90 via the Hamilton St. exit and have free on-site parking.
Following a detailed interview and examination, we will create a treatment plan specifically tailored to meet your needs and goals. Our one-on-one treatment approach emphasizes hands-on cutting edge manual therapy, prescriptive exercise, and neuromuscular retraining techniques not widely available in Spokane. We look at you as a whole person and strive to get at the root of your problems, creating lasting improvements in your function verses temporary symptom management. Our integrated approach has empowered literally hundreds of people to take an active role in their health, feel better and lead fuller lives using conservative and non-invasive means, often even when previous treatment approaches have been unsuccessful.
Spokane Physical Therapy is proud to be a sponsor of the Strides for Strong Bones 5k Fun Run and Walk on August 15th. We encourage you to sign up for this fun and educational event to raise awareness about Osteoporosis in our community.

Article from the Spokesman-Review By Adrian Rogers To Susana Soth, the scar tissue from her mastectomy six weeks ago feels like a rubber band wrapped tight around her chest. But the band is loosening, she said, thanks to help from her physical therapist. And she’s hopeful that by loosening up that tissue, she’ll be able to maintain as much mobility in her arm as she can even after she undergoes radiation as part of her breast cancer treatment. Physical therapy can help cancer patients regain motion after surgery, heal wounds and combat uncomfortable swelling. But it’s sometimes overlooked, said Bill Olson, a Spokane physical therapist who ... read more »
