When I visited CH Therapy at Portland clinic I thought I will give myself one last chance before I decide to go for a second surgery on my back. I had done much therapy in the past in different places but I did not get the benefit I am reaping now. My body was in so much pain and could not tie up my shoes.Everything in me hurt. After being there for three month I feel I am able to mange my daily work. I am very thankful to my therapist Laura for her constant encouragement and compassion and intense work. She truly made a difference in my life. My pain situation is more tolerable. She gave me the tools needed to handle mange my daily pain. My thanks also to all the people who works in that office for their friendly attitude and warm welcome.
Working with CH Physical Therapy made such a huge difference in my quality of life. After I was diagnosed with two herniated cervical discs in my neck several months ago, I was living everyday in chronic pain. The doctor wanted me to try physical therapy as the first plan of action. I was a bit skeptical that it would help that much, but I was so wrong. I am the end of my training sessions and I feel so much better and am living virtually pain free. My trainer was Laura and she was such a joy to work with. She was patient with me and very knowledgeable about tailoring a program for my injury that helped me significantly. She gave me the tools to go forward and keep myself strong and pain free in the future.

There are many things I am thankful for today, many of which are the life changing improvements Colin Hoobler Physical Therapy ( C.H.P.T. ) have made over the last three months since working with and under the professional guidance of Margo Burette.
You website states you specialize in Arthritis ( Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis ):
Before having your joint replaced, try us. Strengthening and stretching muscles around a joint can dramatically decrease pain and improve function, but it must be done right.
I couldn’t agree more.
I first came to C.H.P.T. and met Margo for an evaluation on August 13, 2013, thinking there was not much that could be done after over 30 years of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Peripheral Neuropathy, and the resulting bone spurs, degenerative cervical spine disease and pain. I felt like there was a heavy, painful metal cage locking me in its grip around my shoulders, collar bones and neck, along with many other long time joint problems elsewhere. I had given up doing even simple stretches years ago due to pain and muscle spasms.
It was the first time I have ever had Physical Therapy ( P.T. ), despite Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis around puberty then adult Rheumatoid Arthritis at age 30. I did not know what to expect and was very hesitant initially to even call, but my Rheumatologist had recommended building up muscles in my upper torso with a “personal trainer” of sorts.
From the first moment of the first appointment, Margo was incredibly kind, patiently ( over the last three months ) answered myriads of questions, never gave up hope when it took weeks of core strengthening, myofascial massage and stretching before even eventually being able to use light weights.
Margo took measurements in August, September and November. She did not need to tell me there was a good deal of improvement in range of motion when I saw her on November 25, 2013. I could feel my range of motion, slowly, over the weeks, increasing.
I can now walk briskly for 30 minutes on the treadmill as well as utilize several of the weight machines and free weights. I’ve changed my diet, adding more protein and eating much healthier foods. I feel younger, lighter, stronger. I have less pain throughout the day.
I don’t know what the future will bring me in regards to any possible surgery, however, whatever the case may be, I am much better prepared for any eventuality.
Colin, thank you for the research behind what you do, and for offering your patients “Physical Therapists who get it” like Margo.
I never wanted to try PT, because it seemed like it would be so much work. Finally I got to the point that I was in excrutiating pain starting in my neck and going all he way down to my toes from my own bad posture and a sedentary job. My doctor recommended CH PT, because "they work with patiens to strengthen them and keep them healthy". I liked the sounds of that philosophy, so I made the call. I am learning so much about my bad habits. I even learned that I walk all wrong. My PT, Margo, is amazing. She is very kind, funny and has an amazing knowledge base. Yes, it is work, but it is worth it. And an hour goes by quickly laughing with Margo as I feel like a first grader learning how to read. Thanks so much to Dr. Russell for referring me and to CH Therapy for being AWESOME!!
I cannot say enough about the service I received. I worked with Tawnie and she was an incredible therapist / coach. She went far above and beyond my expectations. I wrote a more detailed account of my experience. Please visit goodhealthstartstoday.blogspot com . (Be sure and add the . between blogspot and com) I tried posting a link but CitySearcht would not let me post links.
Got hit by a car about 7 weeks ago, couldn't hardly walk for a few weeks. Robbi was a great PT, and was fun to talk to. Mirna is also very helpful. Easy people to be around.
I go to Robbi at the Hillsboro office. He's knowledgeable and has helped me regain range of motion in a degenerating hip, coupled with strengthening exercises. He's helped me a lot. Myrna, the receptionist is always pleasant and helpful.
I was referred to CH Therapy by my doctor after suffering from low back pain due to being overweight. Tawnie, my physical therapist, has been absolutely WONDERFUL. I have never arrived for a appointment with her without being greeted, which makes me feel very good about Colin Hoobler and his staff. Since working with Tawnie I have dropped two shirt sizes and have noticed a remarkable improvement in my strength and endurance. Not only did Tawnie focus on the causes of my pain, she was very helpful in making new nutritional choices as well. This is something I can take with me the rest of my life. I am very grateful to Colin and his excellent staff (Tawnie, Katie, Leslie, Easter) I would definately recommend Tawnie and Katie to anyone in need of Physical Therapy, my experience has been a very good one. Thank you Tawnie. :)
Great team at the Cornell Road office. I genuinely feel 'cured'! I no longer feel the knee pain that brought me to them.
I am a current patient, and I have to say that Robi is the most intelligent and intuitive Physical Therapist I have ever met. Unlike other therapists that I have seen in the past, he is addressing the root of my problem, and has far exceded my expectations. Because of him, I have already been able to stop almost all of the pain medications that the doctor has given me, and I'm not even done with my therapy! We are very fortunate to have him here in our Hillsboro community.
