For Physicians

There are many places to send patients for physical therapy in the Portland-Metropolitan area. Three factors separate c.h. Physical TherapySM:

For PhysiciansWe help patients assume greater responsibility for their health, especially for those with chronic pain and opioid addiction.  One of the first questions we ask patients is, “Where do you plan to exercise on your own?”, as we make it clear the program must be continued for life.

Passive treatments (e.g., manual therapy, ultrasound) are used when indicated and/or requested, such as for those patients in post-surgical physical therapy, where protocols are followed. However, it’s common practice to minimize passive treatments in favor of active methods.

We see patients most often with the following conditions:

  • Chronic pain (e.g., shoulder, spine, hip, knee, foot/ankle)
  • Osteoarthritis (e.g., knee, spine, hip)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Metabolic syndrome/obesity
  • Metabolic (e.g., diabetes, hypertension)
  • Neurological (e.g., Parkinsons, CVA, ALS, RLS)
  • Pediatrics (e.g., obesity, knee pain, diabetes)
  • Geriatrics (e.g., frequent faller, osteoporosis)
  • Cardiovascular (e.g., post-MI, CABG)
  • COPD
  • Chronic kidney disease

To refer, please fax a PT order (or patient demographic sheet) to (503) 546-9150.  Include the patient’s phone number and we will contact the patient within one business day to verify coverage and schedule at a preferred location.


An effective way to refer to us is using our “Happy Planet” Referral Program, which protects time, reduces paperwork, enhances patient care, expedites PT initiation and eliminates the risk of patients losing their referral.  The program involves 3 steps:

  1. physician/office staff tells patient to expect a call from physical therapy
  2. on daily appointment log, black out patients you do not want called
  3. fax appointment log to (503) 546-9150 (secure)

Your office can track patients electronically via Google Drive (we’ll set up for you) so you know who is enrolled and who is not.

Oregon law allows patients to attend physical therapy without referral (insurance may require one).

Earning your trust is something we take seriously.  Please direct all questions/concerns to Colin Hoobler, PT, DPT, MS (CEO) at
