Clinical Conversations

Get evaluated as soon as possible after a car accident.

The best thing you can do for yourself after being involved in a car accident is to get evaluated at Nick Rinard Physical Therapy RIGHT AWAY- do not delay to give yourself the best chance at healing properly.

“I came in to get evaluated for a possible injury from a car wreck. I was then treated for whiplash.

I have improved range of motion in my neck now.

I now have an easier time sleeping on my side that I had before the injury.

My back feels strong now when lifting heavy weights as well.”


Surgery is NOT always the answer for a slipped disk.


Physical Therapy should be your first step.

Get back to feeling better at Nick Rinard Physical Therapy.

“I had a slipped disc and a pinched nerve.

The original instance gave me severe pain in my leg and numbness in my facet.

Through physical therapy progress, my pain was greatly reduced and the numbness decreased.

I came here barely able to walk or stand and now I can do both.

While not 100% cured, I have the tools to keep moving forward and continuing to improve my injury.”


Referrals come from your friends!

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!

Don’t let back pain steal your youth!

“I thought this was the end of my physical fitness routine (and youth) before coming to Nick Rinard Physical Therapy.

But I feel 100% better and know I have the right tools to address this issue if it should ever come back.

I loved all of the clear explanations I received regarding what was physically happening and causing my pain as well as the explanations for how the exercises help to mitigate and fix the pain.”



Nick Rinard Physical Therapy gets results!

Nick Rinard Physical Therapy has used McKenzie’s scientifically proven assessment process that will identify the best treatment solution for back, neck and extremity problems for the last 20+ years.

“I first experienced pain from my left shoulder back in end of July 2021.

After visited my primary care doctor and did and x-ray reviewing no structural damage.

I start visiting my chiropractor monthly trying to resolve the issue.

At the beginning, I can see improvement. But the problem gradually got worse.

So I decided to pay a visit to Nick Rinard Physical Therapy as I had a good experience with my previous back problems a long time ago.

So after 6 visits, I can resume to my daily activities without experience any pains.”

Mainly lower back pain and referral from a sports doctor.

Secondarily, arthritis in thumb joint of right hand.

From both Katie (back) and Natasha (hand).

I now have two things I didn’t have before:

  1. A good visualization of what I need to try to accomplish to minimize pain in each of these areas.
  2. Have tools (props and exercises) available now that I didn’t have before to deal with the discomfort and work toward increasing my functionality and longevity in these areas.

Thanks much!

The best and most effective treatment at Nick’s Rinard Physical Therapy.
It started with me when I had a car accident, which resulted in a very bad back, elbow and neck pain and daily headaches. At first, I paid many visits to several different PT’s for months with no good results, somewhat the pain got even worse. One day my coworker said to me “you should go to Nick Rinard‘s clinic, I know he will help you”. So, I am glad I did! First of all I must say all staff at this place are very professional and friendly. Just after one visit, Nick Rinard was able to fix my elbow. Treated my back and my neck, educated me what exercises and stretches I can do at home. It didn’t take long and after a month or so, I was free of pain. I hear from some people that tennis elbow pain is for life, I tell them go to Nick Rinard‘s PT and he will fix it in one or two visits. The treatment is well customized for each patient based on their issues. Nick Rinard also does consultation at the first visit and able to determine if your pain is mechanical, if so, he will evaluate and help you be free of pain. I refer all my friends and my family to Nick Rinard‘s, knowing that they will have the best care possible. Thank you Nick for your service!
