Matthew Kirchoff, PT, DPT

Clinic Director | Physical Therapist

Matt received his Bachelors of Science in Biology from Portland State University in 2005 and graduated from University of Puget Sound with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) in 2008. While in PT school, Matt completed one of his final clinical internships at the Therapeutic Associates Bend clinic and immediately fell in love with all that Central Oregon had to offer. After graduation Matt and his wife moved to Bend and he started his career at Therapeutic Associates at the Athletic Club of Bend.

In September of 2012, Matt became the director of our clinic at the Sisters Athletic Club and has embraced the vibrant town of Sisters. He is actively involved in the Sisters Kiwanis Club, Sisters Chamber of Commerce and Sisters Parks and Rec. Matt’s areas of clinical interest include aquatic therapy, injured worker rehabilitation and vestibular rehabilitation. Matt’s treatment philosophy is to “treat every patient as if they were your only patient” and he lives this mantra in the clinic daily.

While not in the clinic Matt enjoys fly-fishing, golfing, snowboarding, home-brewing and exploring Central Oregon with his wife Lauren and daughter Madison.

Therapeutic Associates Physical Therapy - Elly Tucker

Elly Tucker, PT, DPT

Physical Therapist

Elly, a native Oregonian, became interested in physical therapy as a career after completing several episodes of rehab for injuries sustained during athletics in her youth. After high school, she worked part-time as a physical therapy aide and in 2013 she received her Bachelors of Science in Biomedical Science from Southern Oregon University. Elly moved to Flagstaff, AZ to attend Northern Arizona University (NAU), where she earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2016. Through NAU’s many community outreach programs, she was given the opportunity to work with individuals experiencing impairments stemming from both orthopedic and neurologic conditions.

Elly completed an internship with Therapeutic Associates at the Sisters Athletic Club during her final year of school and was impressed by the level of personalized care and attention that each patient receives. She strives to work collaboratively with each patient to develop an individualized rehabilitation plan and provide patient-centered care. Elly’s areas of clinical interest include balance and fall prevention, pediatrics, and general orthopedics.

Elly and her husband Jon recently moved to Redmond from Sisters and can be found pursuing a number of outdoor activities including hiking, fishing, and hammocking, among many others.
