Your Home for Physical Therapy

Northwest Therapy provides comprehensive physical therapy services with patient education and involvement in mind. Our therapists have extensive discussions with their patients about the treatment, outcome expectations, and specifically, the patient’s role outside of the clinic environment. Our goal is for our patients to achieve maximum levels of functioning through the development of treatment programs that are uniquely tailored to the individual patient.

If you’re visiting us for the first time, welcome! We are looking forward to working with you. Keep the following information in mind to ensure your visit runs smoothly (and don’t hesitate to call us if you have any questions).

Your First Visit
Your therapist will collect basic information and get a better understanding of your current issue. To determine how your body is responding, the therapist will test your movement, strength and balance.

Following this thorough examination, the therapist will discuss an agreed-upon treatment plan and duration for your therapy care.

What to Wear
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes that will allow us to examine, evaluate, and treat the area of concern.

When to Arrive
Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your appointment time.

Visit Duration
PT visits last from 45-60 minutes.

Don’t hesitate to call us! We are happy to set you up for success. You can reach our team at (503) 353-1278.

Personal Exercise Program Development

When you’re starting a new workout program, training for a 10K, or competing in a sport, letting us identify potential risks may help in your progress and performance. We can also assess and help you improve your flexibility and strength for whatever your personal goals are.


Building Stability

Stability can sometimes be a problem. If you've noticed that you've been losing your balance and falling, it might be a good time to check your balance. It's much easier to take precautionary measures to achieve optimal balance than it is to recover from a broken bone due to a fall. We will do an evaluation and then guide you toward a stronger and more stable lifestyle.

Work-Related and Motor Vehicle Injuries

Injuries occur when we least expect them. Some of them are simple and some are catastrophic. We understand how important it is to perform your job without pain. Whether you work at a desk, on your feet, or out in the field, we want to help you get back to work. We can also help with motor-vehicle injuries. Initially you may not feel the pain, but a day later you may discover you have a headache or neck pain. We can help you with the recovery process and help you manage your pain.

Frequently Asked Questions

Chances are, physical therapy may have been mentioned as a solution to the pain you may be dealing with on a daily basis. If you want to become stronger, more mobile, and perform better, a physical therapy evaluation and plan can give you a great start.

In our evaluation, we address your questions and concerns, evaluate any limitations you may have, and design a plan of care to guide you towards function. You may be given instructions on a home program to compliment your continued therapy care.

This answer varies from patient to patient and depends on a variety of factors such as severity of injury, time frame, previous injury, comorbidities, and age. These factors, along with consistent therapy sessions, play an important role in determining your prognosis.

No. Our therapists see many patients who have a primary care provider outside of Northwest Primary Care.

You may need a referral before being evaluated, but that varies depending on current insurance coverage. Please call the office at 503.353.1278. If you are a patient with Northwest Primary Care, we usually receive a direct referral from your primary care provider.

Sometimes imaging can be helpful, but certainly not required. We will coordinate with your physician to determine if there is a need for future imaging.

We accept most major insurance plans and will gladly work with you and your insurance company to confirm your benefits prior to your appointment. You will then know what to expect to pay on your first visit.

Yes! We offer significant discounts for patients paying in cash.
