"I wanted to share a recent experience I had with Mark Hatfield at Bridgetown Physical Therapy. Luckily for me I have not seen Mark for more than a year and a half for anything other than saying hi. Our last encounter, he was helping me get to the starting line of Mt Hood 50 after recent meniscus surgery and severe plantar fasciitis. However, that all changed on a late night indoor soccer game in November of this year, 2016. The “dreaded” hamstring pull. I had spent the last 23 months working towards completing an ultra race that I had to drop out of due to the meniscus tear. On the drive home that lonely November night I kept thinking this can’t be happening to me. I pulled my hamstring 6 weeks before one of the most important races of my life?! Two years ago it was a torn meniscus. The next day I ended up trying to run on the Wildwood Trail. The entire six mile run back to my car all I could think about was calling Mark Hatfield over at Bridgetown." Click to read more Rob Hamrick, Ultra marathoner
"I have been to Bridgetown PT a couple of times for different injuries and I have seen 2 different practitioners with much success. I really like that the practitioners come with varied backgrounds, so they can work with different methodologies to find what works best for you. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. They also encourage continued education, so you know your therapists are always up to date on the newest science and methods." Jessica Kimmet (Google Review)
"Josh's "Training Like the Pros" class is on of the best workout classes I've attended. Josh took the time to explain all the stations and provided pointers throughout the class. The studio and people provided a great atmosphere. The class pushed me hard and I felt very accomplished after each session. Josh went beyond and also provided nutrition guidance as well."

"We can’t say enough about the quality care and skill of the Bridgetown PT staff. Professional, experienced, knowledgeable and caring are just a few of the words we’d use to describe them. We’d also like to commend them on their community service efforts. Bridgetown PT has been supporting the Team BCT charity running and cycling teams for many seasons. All funds raised by the athletes support Banfield Charitable Trust’s mission of keeping pets and their people together. They've gone above and beyond making sure participants not only are physically ready for an endurance event but also get across the finish line safely. Our participants have come from all levels of athletic experience, most of them have never done an endurance race before, some have lingering prior injuries, and the experienced team members are looking to beat a time. Whatever their goals and needs might be, the Bridgetown team has been with them hand in hand to the finish line and beyond. Many of the participants continue on with Bridgetown post event for care or training. It goes without saying that if you’re looking for care with people that have a strong moral compass and do what’s right for the patient and their community, then look no further. We couldn't have been successful without them!" Banfield Charitable Trust BCT (Google Review)
"I came here due to Achilles tendonitis caused by bicycling improperly 5 months ago. After persistent pain I saw Ali (Allison) here at Bridgetown PT. She used a massage therapy technique called Astym which uses specially shaped, hard plastic tools to help smooth out and rework soft tissue. After three treatments I was in good enough to hop back on the bike.
Overall, great atmosphere like the other reviews have hit on. Staff are great. I feel like I step inside a friends' house whenever I come, it's fun! Frank Brislawn (Google Review)
