Ben Nelson

Ben earned his Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Exercise and Sport Science from Oregon State University and his Master of Science in Physical Therapy (M.S.P.T) degree from Pacific University. He has worked exclusively in outpatient orthopedic clinics since completing his Masters degree in 1999, and worked his way through to become a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist in 2011. Ben enjoys treating patients of all ages and relishes seeing a variety of diagnoses to keep things interesting. From his history both playing and coaching sports, he has developed a special interest treating the young athlete and runners.

Ben believes that physical therapists are the movement specialists of the health care world. He incorporates his certification in Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) with nearly every patient he encounters. SFMA allows him to efficiently break down dysfunctional fundamental movement patterns to better identify the root cause of a patient's condition. When a mobility dysfunction in a patient is identified during one of his PT sessions, Ben incorporates his extensive training in manual therapy (myofascial release, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization/manipulation, muscle energy...) to help "reset" the body's muskuloskeletal system. Ben then incorporates corrective exercises and education to reinforce mobility changes, restructure bad postural habits, improve motor control, with the ultimate goal of returning patients back to pain free activity and sport.

This place is amazing. I am so happy I found Stride Strong PT. Alice pays attention to all of the details, she watches every single move I make, my posture, and the way I move through every exercise. She is very knowledgeable, she was able to pin-point the problems in my back and she has a plan to help me become stronger where I need. The place is brand new, huge, and has nice exercise machines. I tried a few physical therapists in the area, and Alice is TOP, second to none, and I feel super lucky to have found her. Highly recommended!!

Dr. Alice at Stride Strong is one of the best PTs I have come across. Her attention to detail and assessment of the root cause of injury is very good. She is excellent in evaluating pain patterns and giving a training schedule for a rehab & injury prevention, she is extremely knowledgeable. I would strongly recommend Stride Strong to anyone looking for PT. It is easily the best PT clinics in Hillsboro area.

I recently had a massage from Joel at the Hillsboro location. He was able to work on an ongoing issue I have been experiencing with my back after a sports injury, and I left feeling so much better. The whole facility looked incredible, and everyone I met was friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend Stride Strong for massage and physical therapy.

Dr. Sydney is by far the absolute best physical therapist I've worked with ever! Her expertise in designing highly effective and efficient exercise plans is beyond compare. I feel so much better as my strength and function increases. She comes up with the most brilliant and fun ideas to motivate. To my delight she even offered to come to my home in Vancouver and work with me on my own equipment including a Stott Pilates Reformer. Talk about going above and beyond! Couldn't be more grateful I found her!!!

A full hour of a dedicated PT professional's time without aides or techs? That's just one of the things that sets this clinic apart from others. Competent, professional, and amiable, Dr. Alice Holland and her team are the best in the area. While I generally see them at the Cedar Mill Clinic on Cornell, situational constraints took me to their new Hillsboro clinic today near Intel Jones Farm. Beautifully furnished, spacious with easy parking and access. May you continue to grow and thrive, Stride Strong!
