About Me

Jamie Chiapetta

My name is Jamie Chiapetta and I am the owner and sole physical therapist of the business. I was born and raised in Connecticut then attended Denison University  where I received a BA in Economics.  After college, I moved to Aspen, CO and fell in love with the mountains and the activities they offer.  I enjoyed being on ski patrol there and found my true passion of helping to provide medical care to injured people. This led me to Physical Therapy school at the Medical University of SC where I earned a BS degree in Physical Therapy and a Masters in Health Sciences. After graduating, I moved to Oregon to be back In the mountains and begin my career.  I have been fortunate to live in Bend and practice physical therapy since 2000. Furthering my education is important so new techniques are added to my repertoire via continuing education annually. It has always been dream of mine to be a business owner so by merging my foundation of economics and physical therapy I am eager to help you achieve your goals.

During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife Aimee, two sons and golden retriever, Hank.  You might also see me surfing on “the wave” or out hiking, biking, or running on the trails in central Oregon.

Treatment Philosophy

I believe that each individual and their needs are unique. For this reason after discussing your condition, goals, and being evaluated, a treatment plan will be developed. Treatments will almost always begin on the first visit visit and initially will include a modality to help reduce your pain, education and a few exercises. Chronic pain conditions  (pain that has lasted more than 3 months) will often require more “hands on” care at first. This is my speciality; where years of extensive training have taught me methods to make quick improvements to help you feel and move better.  I often will use gentle techniques that help release tightness, reduce pain, and improve range of motion. Once this has been achieved, focus will then be placed on improving strength, function and return to sports/recreational activities. Of course there is often overlap between these phases and sometimes people will start in a later phase. Education about your condition and methods to prevent a recurrence will be provided throughout the course of treatment. I look forward to working with you.
