Physical Therapy

Scope of Practice

At Olympic Sports & Spine (OSS), the focus is on orthopedics. Orthopedic rehabilitation addresses injury and disease that involves muscle, bone, ligament, tendon and joints. Injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents, physical activity, work, or overuse are most common. 

Physicians send OSS over 25,000 new patients each year, attesting to the breadth and scope of our experience. The therapists at OSS are prepared to care for a wide variety of diagnoses that include virtually any injury or disorder affecting the musculoskeletal system.

Orthopedic rehabilitation addresses injury and disease that involves muscle, bone, ligament, tendon and joints.


Physical Therapists graduating today have completed seven (7) years of college work; four (4) years to earn a bachelor's degree and another three (3) year for a Physical Therapy Doctorate (DPT). Physical Therapists are licensed by the state and are required to complete continuing education requirements annually.

All physical therapists receive a broad based rehabilitation education, but much like medical doctors, specialize once in practice. The most common areas of specialization are orthopedics, neurological rehabilitation, pediatrics, geriatrics, cardiopulmonary rehabilitation and acute care. All physical therapists employed by OSS  are licensed in the state of Washington. Many of the therapists hold additional certifications, including Board Certification in Orthopedics and Sports Rehabilitation,  Manual Therapy, Athletic Training and Physical Capacity Evaluation.
