On June 1, 2019, the Banks High School baseball team won the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) 4A State Championship title with help from (among others) Braves assistant baseball coach and our very own founder and physical therapist Kent Bond.
Just over two months later, Kent and our team will further engrain ourselves into the Banks community through the opening of a Banks satellite office for Impact Physical Therapy!
Located in the Banks Wellness Center at 13590 NE Main St., the Impact Physical Therapy of Banks satellite facility will officially start seeing clients on Thursday, Aug. 15. We will host an open house at a later date.
“We’re looking forward to joining a growing team of health care professionals and providing physical therapy services to the Banks community,” said Kent. “I already feel a strong connection with Banks and its athletic community, and I’m eager to provide them with services that improve people’s lives and help them compete both in sports and in the game of life.”
Kent played in integral role in keeping players healthy and injury free during the Banks Braves championship run. During the season, he treated all-state, all-conference and all-district players who experienced such injuries as a labral tear, hamstring strain, a subluxed shoulder and sore ankles.
Team pitchers also actively participated in our Impact Physical Therapy ELEVATE Arm Care Program, an arm recovery initiative developed to minimize arm damage, facilitate healing, improve flexibility and enhance recovery between pitching days.
“Our pitchers threw 3,029 pitches in 30 games this year,” said Joe Baumgartner, head coach of the Banks Braves. “Impact Physical Therapy helped keep our players on the field and allowed them to compete at a high level. Their Arm Care Program facilitated quick recovery and eliminated injuries from our pitching rotation this year.”
Despite implementing youth sports programs focused on injury prevention and performance enhancement, Kent said the Banks satellite clinic will offer the same excellent services and programs the Impact team current offers in Hillsboro. This includes spine care, neck and back health, pre- and post-surgical rehab, active aging, balance and fall prevention, and sports rehabilitation.
The Banks clinic will be open Mondays and Wednesdays from 1 to 6 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 6 to 11 a.m., and Fridays from 1 to 4 p.m.
“Our services and hours will evolve as we get to better know the needs of the Banks community,” Kent said.
Founded by Kent and Anna Bond in 2004, our Impact Physical Therapy team is currently made up of five full-time physical therapists. The Impact team regularly supports community schools, groups, organizations and initiatives that promote athletics, fitness and competition.
