Joanna Chadd PT, DPT

Hi, I’m Joanna. I graduated with Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science in 2007 from Eastern Washington University. I then completed my Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Pacific University and graduated in 2018. Prior to graduating from Pacific University, I obtained my certificate as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist in 2014.

I began working as a full-time physical therapist in Portland, OR in the outpatient orthopedic setting primarily working with youth to elite and professional level athletes, weekend warriors, and a diverse clientele. I have used my CSCS and DPT to work in a variety of athletic settings in and out of the clinic.

My philosophy and approach to physical therapy is treating the whole person—mind, body, and spirit. I enjoy collaborating with clients to get them back to health and wholeness and to help them full send it in life and sport.

My specialties include:

  • Return to Sport (post-op or non-surgical clients)
  • CSCS- strength and conditioning
  • Orthopedics
  • Manual Therapy Techniques including joint mobilization and soft tissue mobilization
  • Kinesiotape
  • Therapeutic exercise, exercise program design and progression

When not in clinic you can find me climbing mountains, paddle boarding, biking, flying out to surf cold and warm water locations, playing music, and hanging with family and friends.

Personal philosophy: Life is here now. Live it loud and well.
