Acute Low Back Pain Care
If you have experienced low back pain, you are not alone. Approximately 80% of individuals will experience it sometime in their lives. At any given point in time, 1 in 4 people have low back pain that interferes with work, routine daily activities, or recreation. Although it is common, low back pain is often misunderstood and left untreated.
The term “manual therapy” refers to hands-on treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Manual therapy encompasses a broad group of sophisticated techniques performed by hand and 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.
Orthopedic Physical Therapy
Orthopedic Physical Therapy is the core of our practice and represents the majority of the services we offer. Physical Therapy, provided by a licensed Physical Therapist (PT), is a medical specialty that focuses on the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular dysfunction. Physical Therapists specialize in anatomy and physiology and are experts in understanding how movement, posture, and function affect the wellness of an individual.
Astym® treatment is a therapy that regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and eliminates or reduces unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. Astym® treatment is highly effective and even works when other approaches routinely fail.
We offer a specialized program to provide quality care for patients affected by limb loss by working with each patient individually and tailoring care to their specific needs.

Knee Osteoarthritis (Portland Region)
There are lots of ways that physical therapy can assist people with knee osteoarthritis, and it will vary based on the individual and likely involve multiple modes of treatment. Research supports physical therapist-supervised exercise, manual therapy, weight loss, and a variety of other interventions. If possible, it is important to try physical therapy before knee osteoarthritis is severe, because there is more potential for improvement and slowing down progression.
Motor Vehicle Accident Care
Motor vehicle accidents can have devastating effects on the body. It is not uncommon to see everything from whiplash and fractures to muscle strains and tearing. Physical therapy is important in helping those who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents, as it helps to reduce stiffness and improve range of motion, while also aiding in overall recovery.
Pediatric Physical Therapy
Pediatric physical therapy assists in the early detection of health problems, in addition to the treatment of a variety of injuries and disorders/diseases that affect the muscles, bones, and joints. Treatments of children from infancy through adolescence focus on improving gross and fine motor skills, balance and coordination, strength and endurance, as well as cognitive and sensory processing and integration.

Our Temporomandibular Dysfunction Program focuses on assessment, direct intervention, and patient education. The goal of our program is to decrease pain, improve posture, and maximize function of patients through efficient and effective delivery of outcomes-based physical therapy services.
Vestibular and Balance Rehabilitation
Vestibular Therapy is specialized physical therapy directed at the vestibular component of the nervous system. The vestibular system uses information from the eyes, inner ear and extremities to help keep your body balanced. Sometimes, this information is incomplete or distorted, causing dizziness or a loss of balance. The purpose of vestibular therapy is to restore good communication between these sources of information and the brain in order to allow better balance or improve dizziness.
