Anne Patron -Forest Grove Physical Therapy

Anne Patron, PT, DPT, MEd

Physical Therapist

Anne was drawn to physical therapy because of how individual treatment can be. She enjoys considering all of a person’s experiences when establishing their plan of care. She thinks that everyone is a little messy and a fun part of the job of a physical therapist is to ensure people can continue to be messy and not feel limited! Anne graduated with her doctoral degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Rhode Island. Anne received her Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise and Sport Science as well as her Masters of Education from Frostburg State University in Maryland. Previous to Therapeutic Associates, Anne worked as a physical therapist in downtown Portland, where she worked with people who had orthopedic, pelvic, and vestibular dysfunctions.

Anne is continuing to study manual therapy through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy to complement her orthopedic knowledge. She is currently pursuing advanced training for pelvic rehabilitation from the Herman & Wallace Institute. Anne enjoys treating people with pelvic dysfunction and pain because of how significantly these issues affect every aspect of life. She treats vestibular impairments as well, and finds that there is so much to learn from each system of the body!

A native of Maryland but a hater of humidity, Anne is pleased to have found a home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Anne started her athletic life as a soccer, softball, and tennis player, but over the years has essentially kept to running. She competed in cross country and track and field at the collegiate Division III level and continues to race today. She likes to hike and be outside, cook, read, binge-watch Netflix, explore new places, and people-watch.
