OMPT offers one-on-one, full-hour treatment sessions with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. We work with people of all ages and athletic abilities and specialize in outdoor recreation sports. We utilize diverse manual therapy techniques (soft tissue massage, joint mobilization/manipulation, myofascial release, cupping, instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization) and provide customized exercise prescriptions to get you out of pain or to take your performance to the next level.

ABOUT THE CLINIC 

COVID UPDATE: Our clinic sets itself apart in that only one client is permitted at a time. All visitors are required to wear a mask, including Dr. Todisco!

We're located right in downtown 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 PT, DPT

Nicole (or Dr. Todisco) 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 fiancé trying to keep up with their border collie mutt Goose!
