We are pleased to welcome Rachel Tiry PT, DPT as the newest member of the Rebound crew! Rachel will be working full-time at our Bend South Clinic.
Rachel earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Following graduation, she worked in outpatient orthopedics in the Minneapolis area, gaining excellent experience in treating a wide variety of conservative and post-operative orthopedic conditions.
In 2017, Rachel had the opportunity to pursue travel physical therapy. This turned into a journey that took her all over the country, living in seven different states over three and a half years. During this period, she spent a large amount of time in orthopedics and sports medicine, allowing her to reaffirm her passion for working with diverse, active patient populations. Rachel and her husband love the lifestyle that Central Oregon offers with endless biking, hiking, camping, and skiing. She is incredibly excited to be part of a community centered around all things outdoors.
