ABOUT THE CLINIC 

We're located right in the heart of Bend! Our space is totally focused on our clients, from a doggy guest bed to state of the art strength and conditioning equipment.

 

We're here to teach you and work with you to improve movement, build strength, and develop resilience to tackle any current challenges and prevent future ones. We do not believe in insurance dictating treatment strategy. Read more about our treatment philosophy and our pay model.

 

We are a dog-friendly clinic! Occasionally you may find Goose sleeping in his bed during your session. If you prefer a dog-free zone (and especially if you're allergic!), let us know ahead of time.

ABOUT THE TEAM

Dr. Nicole Todisco MacDonald PT, DPT

Owner/Physical Therapist

Nicole earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Rutgers University, where she received a clinical excellence award for outstanding community service. Since, she has had exposure to a variety of outpatient clinics in New Jersey, Arizona, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. She has experience working with highly varied cases including but not limited to: post-operative, sports medicine, developmental, chronic, work-related, and disease-specific conditions. These experiences have allowed her to find her passion for empowering clients to stay active during treatment and facilitate methods for lifelong health and wellness through evidence-based intervention. Her varied experiences have taught her that the best care is provided in a small setting and on a one-on-one basis.

 

Nicole believes in movement and mindfulness as the best approach to overcome injury and create optimal physical function. Above all else, Nicole focuses on making clients feel comfortable while encouraging them to be active contributors in achieving their goals.

What about outside OMPT?

 

Nicole grew up in the Green Mountains of Vermont and, after living in a whole lot of places, has happily made Bend home. She got her start in competitive sports, captaining teams in field hockey, ice hockey, and golf. Her adult life has included a range of endurance/fitness based challenges, including Crossfit competitions, a marathon, and GoRuck Challenges.

 

Outside of the clinic, she enjoys just about any outdoor activity, be it skiing, cycling, climbing, hiking, camping, or fishing (when possible, multiple items in the same trip). Most weekends you can find her and her husband trying to keep up with their border collie mutts Goose and Brew!

Jessica is a Bay Area, California native who has always enjoyed an active outdoor lifestyle. Growing up, Jessica played highly competitive basketball and soccer, and through those athletic endeavors, she developed a true love for fitness and wellness. This not only became the inspiration for her chosen career path but also led her to become an avid runner as an adult, completing several half marathons and one full marathon.

 

She received a B.S. in Kinesiology and enjoyed a fulfilling career as a physical educator, athletic director, and coach. She went on to earn her M.A. in Educational Administration and spent the last half of her career as a school administrator.

 

Now retired from her primary career, she appreciates being able to take full advantage of the outdoor opportunities here in Bend. She enjoys hiking, kayaking, SUP, pickleball, disc golf, and golf. She and her wife, along with their two pups, Maggie and Stella, are thrilled to be a part of the Bend community!
