Corrie Black, D.P.T
Knowing that rehabilitation takes time, Corrie Black coaches her patients to reach a mutual understanding of the prognosis, expectations and process. “Educating patients on their diagnosis is primary,” she says. “Both for their own understanding and for their own ability to take charge in the healing process.”
Corrie worked as an athletic trainer in college sports, and brings keen insight to her work with sports-related rehabilitation. She has over 10 years of swim coach experience working with children, teens, and Masters Athletes in Southern Oregon. She earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy Degree from Pacific University in Forest Grove and her Bachelor of Science Degree in Pre-Physical Therapy/Athletic Training with a Minor in Psychology from Southern Oregon University in Ashland.
She tries to find the humor in life, which helps her to establish good working relationships with patients. “People should have results pertaining to their particular injury,” she says. “But they should always feel comfortable in that process.”
She enjoys swimming, hiking, and running for exercise. She and her husband enjoy activities related to their two young boys.
