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.

Do insurance terms have you confused?

Challenges of our unstable economy is that our community must face unpredictable health care coverage and bizarre terms insurance companies use to deny patient visits. 

Patients discover, often way too late, that their insurance does not cover them when they need it most.

Health insurance plans are misleading patients with vague terms such as “medical necessity” and “prior-authorization”.

With these terms patients can suddenly find themselves with unexpected health care costs, after having the impression they were covered.

It is up to patients to get wise to their health insurance loop holes.

Our patients have found, regardless of all costs, that the quality of care Nick Rinard Physical Therapy gives exceeds all else.

We strive to simplify patients’ decisions by providing fast, efficient care that guarantees results.

How far are you willing to travel to get results?

When does a location close to home become more expensive than a place a little farther away?

This is just one question that comes to mind when you start thinking about your health.

A place close to home may actually cost you more……

 …..than if you went to Nick Rinard Physical Therapy.

When you Google “PT near me” the list generated does not mean you are you getting the best care that is available to you!

What are you going to do to beat the heat?

Don’t allow the heat stop you from enjoying the activities you love, but be smart about your time in the sun.

Tips to remember:

Be patient with your body. If you regularly exercise outdoors, it can take up to 2 weeks for you to acclimate to the hotter conditions.

Hot days are not the time to attempt to beat your best time, instead just enjoy yourself!

Stay hydrated! Make sure that whatever you are doing, you bring water with you. If you can, plan your activities for earlier in the day or late at night when the temperatures are cooler.

We care about you!

Don’t deal with the pain, heal it with help at Nick Rinard Physical Therapy this summer.

Let Nick Rinard Physical Therapy Diagnose your injury today to get on the fastest path to recovery.

“A very painful, nonfunctional right arm.

Nick diagnosed it, wrote to Dr. Crist suggesting that I get a cortisone shot.

I could not lift my arm at all.

I received the shot and pain was reduced greatly. With PT I am fully functional and without pain.

Thank you team.” Elaine

Thank you for sharing your success on google!

Thank you Kirby for the 5 star google review.

“Can’t say enough good things about Nick and the rest of the staff.

I had a knee issue that he quickly resolved. In the past during sports I have visited other specialists that added on unnecessary visits.

Nick is no nonsense, and will give you the treatment that is necessary to get you back on track!”

The trails are waiting for you and your dog to get back out there.

“I had knee pain from my dog side swiping me on a trail.

Katie identified the problem + gave me specific exercises to do.

They helped stop the worsening of the injury immediately.

Then we worked on remodeling the tissue & getting rid of all the pain as well as strengthening to avoid future problems.

I love & appreciate this approach!

It works & I can do it at home.

Thanks so much.”
