In the past, we used to go to a doctor we had known for most of our lives -for everything.
They saw us at our worst and would send us off to a place that was best suited to get us better.
All that has changed in the last 10 years. No longer are you with a doctor, but you are guided by a corporation of doctors. You are scheduled to see someone in your group of OHSU, Legacy, Providence, or Kaiser just to name a few in the Portland area. If your doctor leaves, you stay and get a new one and now when they refer you out, it is to another specialist in the same corporation– whether they can get you better or not.
It is the people around you who know you best. Your friends and family are the new source of advice. They want to always see you at your best– trust their recommendations in Nick Rinard Physical Therapy!
Getting patient results for the last 20+ years.
“I thought this was the end of my physical fitness routine (and youth) before coming to Nick Rinard Physical Therapy.

Not all Physical Therapy is the same. Some are more effective than others. If you had Physical Therapy, did it work? If you are going to Physical Therapy now, is it helping? If yes, you should continue until you are better. However, if you are not getting better, or if you need Physical Therapy in the future, then you should read on.
Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) has been shown in numerous scientific studies to be the most effective type of Physical Therapy available today. However, you should know just what MDT is so you can be sure you are actually receiving it.
The MDT method does not rely on technological gadgets such as ultrasound or electrical stimulation commonly used in traditional Physical Therapy. There is little evidence to show that these machines actually help in recovery. Instead, Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, as its name suggests, uses mechanical forces to centralize referred pain, and to correct the physical problem. Exercises designed specifically for each patient, affect pain immediately, and can be performed by the patient whenever pain arises. Over a short time, these exercises heal the injury and allow full recovery. In our clinic, Nick Rinard Physical Therapy, the average number of visits is only six and a half!
Medical Advisory: MDT is a Superior Form of Physical Therapy
First off….Is shopping for health insurance even a thing? Like you shop for car insurance or home owners insurance?
How much of a choice do you get when choosing an insurance company?
Do you get to choose them based on patient reviews of how they pay for patients visits?
Do you get to choose them based on results?
Do you know what benefits your plan provides yet find that the insurance company will end up denying them?
These are just a few questions patients rarely get answers to when purchasing health insurance… and can only find out after it is too late- that patients are just paying premiums for nothing!

After what seems like an eternity, it is finally time to prepare the garden and start seeds!
Here are a few tips to keep you in the dirt all spring and summer long.
· Avoid prolonged bending. Kneeling on a pad or bringing a stool outside will save your back and your knees.
· Clear your path, and get additional help before moving or lifting heavy pots or bags of soil.
· When lifting, be sure that you keep your back straight and lift from your legs.
· Be aware of your posture while gardening. Many of us are prone to slouching, so take note and sit up straight.
· Call Nick Rinard Physical Therapy right away if you notice any back pain.
· Getting in sooner than later equals fewer visits and you are back to doing what you love.
