Dr. Barbara Ehman has been a licensed physical therapist since 1987 dedicating her career to applying professional skills to individuals where she was born and raised. She has remained active in clinical education and progressive within her profession; having earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2010. She joined OSPTA after graduation from physical therapy school in 1987, became a partner in the practice in 1994, and became president of the practice in 2013. She was a contributing author of the text book, “Back Pain Rehabilitation” (1993).
Dr. Ehman loves to sail, garden and ski. She and her husband have designed and physically built two homes-doing 90% of the labor themselves – giving Dr. Ehman a great appreciation of skills required for many trades-helpful in treating carpenters, roofers, plumbers, etc.
After 25years of practice, I am practical when it comes to designing a home program of exercise. I work with patients to custom design an efficient program which get's results. I won't give you 2 hours worth of exercise if you are only likely to do 20 minutes! It's about compliance and cooperation with a plan of action to help acheive a pain-free and functional lifestyle.
