Clinical Conversations

We have SAFELY reopened and are here for you!


 “Thank you” to all of our patients who were able and continued to continue care and stay in contact with Nick Rinard PT since Oregon’s “stay at home” order on March 23.  Nick Rinard took the proactive decision to stop in-person visits on March 13 to protect the health and safety of everyone in the community. 

New patients and established patients found our telehealth visits very valuable as we were able to continue to diagnose, educate and offer the tools they needed to get through this difficult time.  It was a challenging, but really fun experience to connect with patients on telehealth, and also to get you feeling better and in less pain! 

Since the easing of stay at home orders on May 1st Nick Rinard Physical Therapy was able to re-open our SW Capitol clinic doors as of May 4th  (Monday through Friday 8am-6pm).

Nick Rinard Physical Therapy loves treating you and we are so happy open not only our doors but our hands and hearts to get you the results you have come to know and trust for the last 20 years.


Sun is happening in the PNW

Sunny days and hotter temperatures are on their way.

Summer weather may be here – but we may not be summer ready.

Here are some tips to keep you safe and healthy this weekend:

Please remember to wear sunscreen, stay hydrated in the heat, keep out of the rivers as they are still to cold for swimming, and keep outside activities adjusted to what your body can handle.

Have fun whatever your plans may be!
