Eugene Physical Therapy

Our PT staff hold specialist credentials and/or Doctorate degrees with educational background in musculoskeletal diagnosis. The field of Physical Therapy has grown at an exponential rate over the past 60 years, with specialization within different areas. More information on individual staff members are available by clicking on their photo at the top of the page. The most valuable service we provide comes on the first visit of the initial Evaluation, in which physical deficits are identified and design a treatment plan tailor made for your specific problem. Every patient is unique and is evaluated accordingly by our Physical Therapists.

Patients can access us by self referral or with physician referral. For more information on “Access to Physical Therapy” click this link.

Our clinic philosophy is to use Therapeutic Modalities as little as possible due to the nature of having temporary relief and the research that shows patients are more successful with treatment programs where the patient is interactive in the treatment process, rather than passive treatments, which therapeutic modalities are considered.1-5   There is always the appropriate case for such treatments, in which these treatment options would be a short term focus towards the patient reaching a stage where they are able to progress to more interactive treatment options that are associated with a successful recovery in the physical therapy medical literature.
