Bend North Work Injury Rehabilitation Program
At Rebound Physical Therapy Bend North, we specialize in helping the injured worker from initial injury to return to work in the most efficient manner possible. Rebound offers “Same Day” assessments at anyone of its 10 Clinics in Central Oregon to initiate care and start the return to work process as quickly as possible. Our separate Work Injury Facility (Adjacent to Rebound North clinic) is equipped for all Physical Capacity/ Work Capacity Testing and Work Simulation Rehabilitation (Work Conditioning / Work Hardening). In this facility we are able to provide the testing needed by providers, insurers, employers. We are also able to re-create job demands specific to the injured worker and simulate the duties and movements required by them to safely return to work. We are the only physical therapy Bend provider to have a separate facility devoted to testing and work simulation.

In 1996, Eric earned his Physical Therapy degree from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, graduating with Special Distinction. He spent his first ten years as a Physical Therapist serving the Norman Campus community at the University of Oklahoma. During that time, he enjoyed treating a diverse population with many types of orthopedic disorders, including a wide range of spinal dysfunctions and post-surgical care. Because of his passion for treating sports related injuries, Eric earned certification as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) in 2000. In his spare time, Eric completed additional coursework and a thesis necessary to obtain a Masters of Science in Health and Sport Sciences degree with an emphasis in exercise physiology, finishing in 2003.
In recent years, Eric has completed numerous continuing education courses with a special interest in biomechanics, conditions, and treatment of injuries associated with the lower extremities. Eric became a board certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) in 2011.
Throughout his career, Eric has volunteered his time as a medical team provider for both amateur and professional events in a variety of sports including tennis, football, basketball, running and cycling. He is an avid fan of college athletics and welcomes all discussions about the topic. Eric truly enjoys the Central Oregon lifestyle and loves the many outdoor opportunities available. Perhaps you will see him out on the trails training for his next marathon.
