Stride Strong Physical Therapy has been my PT spot for about 4 months. During that time I have been working with Ben. He has been the absolute BEST physical therapist that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Ben is great to work with and it is very obvious that he has a solid combination of academic and real life experiences that make him an amazing therapist. He has a patient and progressive approach to helping his Clients work with their physical limitations, and seems to be genuinely interested in helping you achieve your best. I am very happy with the progress we have made together.
I would highly recommend Stride Strong to anyone who is serious about getting quality physical therapy. The office is spacious, clean and has modern equipment. The office manager Lisa is great too! She is very polite and on point with key details about therapy, scheduling and insurance. It is always a great experience at Stride Strong - thank you so much!! 🙂
I've been working with Brian Blevins for a few months now, and he has been amazing! He's helped me recover from an ankle injury and work through issues with my achilles tendon. He's very knowledgeable and thorough. Highly recommend both him and Stride Strong PT!
I am 75 years old and have struggled with back issues for over 30 years. I had a laminectomy in the mid 1980s, spinal steroid injection in the early 2000s and a hip replacement in 2006. Each of these procedures gave some relief from acute pain but I was nevertheless left with residual lower back pain that in recent years became worse, seriously interfering with my ability to play golf and walk for exercise, a depressing state of affairs for someone like me who values fitness. I was determined to fight it, trying chiropractors, acupuncture, massage, hot tubs, gym trainers and a regular regimen of stretching to little or no lasting avail. A friend recommended Stride Strong Physical Therapy on Cornell Road, Portland, Oregon. I was dubious about trying yet another program for relief, but am now delighted I did. After 7 sessions with Clinician Ben Nelson, I am hiking in the Gorge and walking 18 holes pain free. Aside from being a nice, unpretentious guy, Ben wastes no time getting to the heart of things, zeroing in on goals and the real impediments to achieving them. In my case, Ben first focused on strengthening hips and thighs. I hadn't realized how much of the pain I was experiencing playing golf involved those areas. He then moved to the lower back band with deep tissue work. The combination seems to be working far in excess of my expectations. Five Stars for sure.
Ben Nelson has been a real life saver! My husband is an older guy, can be a handful to work with! Ben has been communicative, positive, patient, kind and compassionate thus super helpful. We really like Ben a lot + his PT recommendations are working!! So pleased!
Three months ago I was unable to walk without searing pain from my Achilles. While the treatment was difficult, the results have been simply outstanding. Stride Strong's Ben Nelson, PT, MSPT is professional, knowledgeable and "gets the job done"! Well done. Thanks to Ben, I am walking and exercising without pain.

Our Physical Therapists Treat Many Common Injuries
Our Doctors of Physical Therapy are experts when it comes to exercise therapy. We believe strongly in the power and healing ability of exercise and strengthening. Too often, in our daily lives, we have been subjected to sitting and sedentary lifestyles that are not conducive to building strong and healthy bodies. Much of the common ailments are actually caused by this inactivity: low back pain, knee pain, and rotator cuff injuries. Our physical therapists will not only prescribe exercises, but, they also closely guide the patients as they perform them, to make sure form and technique is not compromised and the maximum healing effect is attained. Meet our physical therapists here.
Back Pain Therapy
Back pain is one the most common pains that bring patients to visit the doctor, miss work, and skip sports. This type of pain is also one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. Because of how much we use our backs for almost every activity we do (walking, standing, sitting upright, lifting, carrying) it is no wonder that pain and discomfort in our spines would cause us to halt most of our activities.

Neck Injury Pain Treatment
Neck injury pain can be a result of many different conditions like a pinched nerve, soreness from whiplash, or even from just sleeping incorrectly. Most neck pain is NOT caused by a serious disease and there are a variety of clinical tests and prediction rules to determine the most likely cause of the neck injury that will point us in the right direction.
Pinched Nerve in Neck
Leg Injury Treatment
Leg injuries are very common in the US population simply because we are largely a sitting society. A lot of time is being spent in a seated position – whether during work, in the car, or when relaxing and socializing – almost all activities are spent in a chair. Over time, muscles of the leg become atrophied from non-use and muscle strength will get gradually reduced. Read more about out leg pain treatment here.
We treat the following types of leg pain:
Knee Injury Treatment and Total Knee Replacement Therapy
Hamstring Strain Treatment
Treatment for Meniscus Tears
Shin Splint Therapy
One other aspect we are sticklers for is posture and biomechanics. This is crucial when treating sports injuries such those from running, and for chronic strain injuries like plantar fasciitis. Just as patients can slowly decondition their tissues from non-activity, patients can also hurt themselves during faulty activity. We utilize Video Analysis to record and playback bio mechanics during walking, running or even standing. This way we are able to analyze what each joint and limb are doing and we are quickly able to ascertain where postural habits and poor mechanics have caused an injury.
Common After-Surgery Treatment & Therapy
Surgical repairs have to be given the utmost care and attention. Not only do we have to respect for tissue healing time, but the physical therapist must also account for gradual tissue adaptation to exercise. At Stride Strong Physical Therapy, we have several means for reducing surgical pain so the body is better able to heal: we employ the Gameready cold compression delivery system to help with swelling; and we perform various levels of manual therapy to calm muscles down, improve circulation, and decrease scar tissue formation. Some of the most common surgeries we help patients heal from are: Total knee replacements, rotator cuff repairs, lumbar micro discectomies, achilles tendon repairs and vertebral fusions.
Dosing of exercise progression is also paramount to a patient’s healing continuum: too little and we risk prolonging the rehab phase, too much and we risk aggravating the patient’s pain. Our Physical Therapists are experts when it comes to this delicate balance of benefit and harm. We also make it a point to maintain close communication with orthopedic surgeons and physicians to maximize healing for our patients that are recovering from surgeries.
