A new health care provider has moved to the area and joined Washougal Sport & Spine Physical Therapy.
Marissa Loosli, a native of Sequim, has a doctorate in physical therapy from Pacific University-Oregon, in Forest Grove. She is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and is pursuing advanced training through the North American Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy.
Loosli has a special interest in spinal conditions, and she enjoys hiking and backpacking.
“Marissa is a perfect fit for our clinic and her patients will benefit from her energy and truly caring spirit,” said Steve McCarthy, owner of Washougal Sport & Spine Physical Therapy. “Adding her to our team allows us to expand our hours for patient convenience as well as further develop community health programs such as ACL injury prevention for athletes and balance/fall prevention for the older population.”
McCarthy, a 1996 Camas High School graduate, is a licensed physical therapist. He treats individuals affected by stroke, as well as neck, back and shoulder pain, and sports and work-related injuries.
The staff includes physical therapist Kimberly Williams, certified personal trainer Chloe Scott and physical therapy aide Eric Brown.
Washougal Sport and Spine, a physical therapy clinic that specializes in orthopedic injury and surgical rehabilitation, opened in November 2008. Referrals are not needed to receive physical therapy. The clinic is located at 1700 Main St., Ste. 222, in Washougal Town Square.
