in the last 3 months than I have in the last 3 years.”
Tony Andres, DPT
Eugene Physical Therapy is hiring! We are a Family and completely Independent. 2023 marks our 20th anniversary of independent practice. Our team is excited to share why Eugene Physical Therapy could be a great job fit for you!
Eugene, Oregon, provides a lot to offer for those who want to apply for a Physical therapist position.
Whenever I fly back to our town, I think of our home as the Emerald City due to how much green we have, with the backdrop to all ….that we call Forest. Eugene, Oregon, boasts a unique blend of urban amenities and access to the great outdoors.
One cannot discuss physical therapy jobs in Eugene, Oregon, without first acknowledging the captivating backdrop of this city and sister city, Springfield. Eugene, Oregon, is nestled in the heart of the Willamette Valley, the Cascade Mountains.
Eugene, Oregon’s serene surroundings, including the Willamette and McKenzie Rivers and Spencer and Skinner Buttes, provide an ideal environment for both work and leisure, noting our city bike paths have won awards at the national level.
One of the fundamental tradeoffs in choosing physical therapy jobs in Eugene is the delicate balance between work and lifestyle. While the demand for a physical therapist remains high, when conducting your search, it’s essential to consider how your job choice may impact your personal life.
Eugene and Springfield residents are known for valuing a work-life balance, and many employers understand the importance of offering flexible schedules.
Eugene is home to the University of Oregon, with a student population of over 20,000; our rival school, Oregon State University (OSU), is less than 45 minutes away and boasts over 30,000 students.
Eugene is known as Track Town USA. Every 4 years, one of our physical therapists has been selected to host the USATF Olympic Trials since 2008. Hayward Field at U of O is the largest Track stadium in the United States. Our Physical Therapist clinicians have served on Sports Medicine Teams at the Olympic level since 2000.
Compared to Washington or California, our cost of living is significantly lower. We have no state sales tax. Costs are simply less all around. Eugene continues to add more and more jobs as Oregon is known as a great place to live!
As a Physical Therapist who has served our local health community for 30 years in Eugene, Oregon, I have seen a variety of physical therapist jobs and therapy job search settings in our area.
Gradually, I have seen more settings gravitate to having the Physical Therapist see multiple patients simultaneously and having the Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) or the PT Aide serve in place of the Physical Therapist. This means the patient has less and less contact with a Physical Therapist.
What makes the physical therapy services at our clinic stand out is our commitment to having only Physical Therapists deliver all the care at our clinics.
Our clinical model is becoming more rare. The quality of care delivered to a patient who sees 2 or 3 patients simultaneously will receive much less quality care than our Physical Therapist staff can deliver one-on-one.
It is our commitment to the care of the patient and that of a Physical Therapist who wants to thrive and excel.
In a world where a Physical Therapist may complain of stagnation and burnout, innovation and creativity are vital to thriving in our profession.
Are you looking at your patient as another patient? Or as a unique, genuinely different snowflake that may take creative thinking and going outside the box to yield clinical success.
Unique programs in aquatic physical therapy services.
Advanced running kinematic assessment on the track.
Use of weight training in a gym.
A patient exposed to Tai Chi class.
Manual & Manipulative Therapy. Strain/counterstrain. Muscle Energy Technique. Joint Mobilization. PNF, HVLT.
Our health patient is our customer. They all want to “get better,” but they do not know what they “need.” The Physical Therapist is the Professional who is supposed to explain the best path to an optimal recovery.
Did the Physical therapist ask for a thorough history or skim the surface of a more complicated case?
Did the Physical therapist inquire about prior treatment to evaluate its efficacy?
By design, we have an incredible variety of services and diverse patient ages and health conditions, with about 75% being orthopedic, spine, and sports injuries.
We also have expertise in areas such as Hand Therapy, TMD, Stroke (CVA), Vestibular Rehabilitation, Lymphedema, CRPS, Parkinson’s, and headaches.
Anyone can treat an athlete. Can you take your care to the “World Class” level?
This does not start with a scan that may be expensive.
It starts with taking time to listen.
To make a hypothesis.
To make a differential diagnosis.
To establish a serious relationship with your patient.
Is the patient part of the solution or part of the problem.
All of our patient rooms have mechanical hi-lo tables with access to gym area space. We utilize Rowing ergometers, treadmills, and stationary bikes, including every possible item you would need to excel in advancing your clinical skills to the expert level.
This includes the ability to loan items such as canes, crutches, and walkers to the patient, in addition to access to immobilizers and other forms of bracing that patients sometimes need temporarily to start improving at an optimal manner.
Why would use Tubing vs. Thera-band? Is there a difference? Some Physical Therapists know the answer. These are examples of the many laundry list of tools we use to solve problems.
We offer tremendous mentorship opportunities to any new physical therapist that joins our clinic. Our goal is to help you build on your skills and help you utilize the services that we offer our patients.
Not only will our Physical Therapist grow and learn, but they teach as well. “To teach is to learn a second time”. Each year we accept 2-3 DPT students into a very rigorous training program.
