Impact Physical Therapy of Hillsboro is in the middle of expanding their Belknap Court practice in both size and scope.

Citing continued growth and a desire to better accommodate the rehabilitation, prevention and educational needs of his clients, Kent Bond, PT, had spent the last six months renovating an additional 1,055 square feet of space adjacent to his current office, effectively expanding his facility by 50 percent. Bond and staff are planning an Open House event on the 9th of May.

“On certain days, it can get pretty crowded around here, and this new space will allow us to be able to grow and enhance our present services,” Bond said. “We’d like to expand into bike fit analysis, and we’ll have a space designated for motion analysis, a service we currently offer but which is limited because, until now, we didn’t have the space we needed.”

Additionally, Bond would like to grow his services by offering a personal training component, massage therapy and perhaps even acupuncture. He is currently creating a dialog with the local medical community to learn which services would be most valuable to them and their patients.

“I’ve sat down with a handful of physicians to gather this information,” Bond said. “How can we help them? What services are going to be most valuable to them in 2013? Is it weight loss, medical exercise, etc.? We’re currently working to get more insight on the needs of this area based on feedback from our referral sources.”

Impact Physical Therapy of Hillsboro currently employs three full-time physical therapists and two PT aids, offering clients a total of more than 50 years of physical therapy experience treating clients experiencing a variety of ailments and goals – from stroke rehabilitation and spinal cord trauma to high-level sports performance.

In addition, the staff offers functional movement screens to people of all ages and abilities, as well as free sports consultations for local student athletes.

“Local coaches know they can send someone over to us for an assessment and advice,” Bond said. “We can offer an initial screening, then steer them in the right direction, be it an athletic trainer or an area physician.”
