Who Are We?

Mountain Valley Therapy is the premier provider for outpatient Physical and Occupational Therapy in the Grande Ronde Valley. Our story began in 1999 when two folks had a vision of providing meaningful, ethical and positive therapy services to the community. We love our community and owe a significant proportion of our success to everyone who has helped us become the premier outpatient clinic we are today.

Mountain Valley Therapy is nestled in the Grande Ronde Valley, in the heart of Eastern Oregon. Our surrounding landscape is full of all things outdoorsy dreams are made of. Eastern Oregonians love the abundance of hiking, biking, camping, fishing, hunting, bird watching, morrell picking, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and rafting that is readily available in our community. If you love the outdoors and the serenity of a rural community, the team at Mountain Valley Therapy would love to talk to you.

We are centered on healing. We understand that healing is a personal process and our dedicated therapy staff provide just that. We have 11 Physical Therapists, 5 Physical Therapist Aides and 2 Occupational Therapists who are devoted to supporting folks through their rehabilitation journey. We currently offer over 20 specializations including on-site Aquatic Therapy, Myofascial Release, Strain Counterstrain, Vestibular Rehabilitation, CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Mobilization, and ASTYM.

We work to restore the joy of living through therapeutic, individualized care, and grow closer to our community with every visit. We also recognize the value in having fun in our professional day to day work. We have to take care of ourselves and our coworkers to be able to provide a high level of care to our patients. We foster a workplace with mini celebrations such as fantasy football, March madness brackets and holiday parties to ground ourselves and create opportunities for staff to connect.
