A few Testimonials:

“I’ve suffered lower back pain for almost thirty years. Physical Therapy with Kevin has been, without a doubt, the most effective recovery and preventative treatment I have ever received.”–   Gregg H,  Portland, OR


“I came in 6 weeks ago feeling very frustrated with my broken clavicle. Today I feel like a new man. Very thoughtful and awesome service. All-around a great team and office!”    -Tony W, Portland, OR


“I have been to dozens of PT’s over a lifetime of competitive sports. I can honestly say that Kevin Schmidt is the best practitioner I have seen. . . I have now been to see him for three separate injuries (neck, hip and knee) that doctors had difficulty diagnosing and/or treating. Kevin was able to quickly narrow in on the issue, and have me ‘ship-shape’ in a matter of weeks. His staff is very helpful and friendly. . . Can’t recommend highly enough.”   –Robin M,   Portland, OR


“I am SO glad I found Pedal PT! I had been struggling with the limiting after-effects of an ankle sprain for 7 months, and wondering if my range-of-motion would ever be normal again. I had a podiatrist tell me I might need surgery for a minor chip of my Talus, but otherwise he offered no advice. After only a few treatments with Kevin, not only do I have my range-of-motion back, but I’ve been running and hiking with confidence. It was so nice to go to someone who knows a ton about the foot and ankle . . . and knew simple moves to correct it.  Additionally, the staff is super helpful and friendly. There is even free bike parking inside. Couldn’t recommend this place more. — Emily G.    Portland, OR


“I couldn’t walk for a while because of knee pain, and I went to another PT place and they couldn’t fix me. . . I seriously could not walk for a while…. and he got me over that. God, that was a relief!” –Joe M,   Beaverton, OR


“Out at Shorties today surfing again thanks to Kevin’s fine work.”  –Todd C.   Portland, OR


“I wrecked a knee on a backpacking trip in June and it was getting worse and worse. Finally decided to do something about it and tried Pedal PT. Kevin checked me out, gave me a few easy exercises to do, and pointed out some other things I could do to take care of my knees. . . . The result? I’m back to almost 100% after just a couple of weeks. It’s a fun office, and Kevin is enthusiastic about his work and obviously knowledgeable.  I highly recommend Pedal PT!”  –Don R  Portland, OR

Do I need to see my Doctor first? 

In Oregon, anyone can receive evaluation and treatment from a Licensed Physical Therapist without a written referral. This is called Direct Access, or ‘Self Referral’.  The insurance companies also do not require a doctor’s referral for reimbursement in Oregon.

Do you only see bike injuries? 

Great question- we get asked this one that a lot. Because of our specialty, we do see a lot of cyclists for injury care/bike crashes as well as for bike fit, however 50% of our clients injuries are NOT directly related to bicycling. We are full-service Physical Therapy/Injury rehab from acute to chronic injuries, and everything in-between.

We treat all parts of the body with over 15 years of orthopedic clinical experience from all levels of crashes and motor vehicle accidents, sporting injury rehab, pre/post surgical rehab, sports performance, ergonomics, and workplace wellness.

Pedal PT your bike-friendly  one-stop-shop for all your hands-on orthopedic injury care needs.

 What should I expect on my first visit?

The therapist will discuss the following:

  • Your medical history.
  • Your current problems/complaints.
  • Pain intensity, what aggravates and eases the problem.
  • How this is impacting your daily activities or your functional limitations.
  • Your goals with physical therapy.
  • Medications, tests, and procedures related to your health.
  • The therapist will then perform the objective evaluation which may include some of the following:

Palpation – touching around the area of the pain/problem. This is done to check for the presence of tenderness, swelling, soft tissue integrity, tissue temperature, inflammation, etc.
Range of Motion (ROM) – the therapist will move the joint(s) to check for the quality of movement and any restrictions.
Muscle Testing – the therapist may check for strength and the quality of the muscle contraction. Pain and weakness may be noted. Often the muscle strength is graded. This is also part of a neurological screening.
Neurological Screening – the therapist may check to see how the nerves are communicating with the muscles, sensing touch, pain, vibration, or temperature. Reflexes may be assessed as well.
Special Tests – the therapist may perform special tests to confirm/rule out the presence of additional problems.
Posture Assessment – the positions of joints relative to ideal and each other may be assessed.

What health insurance do you take? How much does it cost?

1) Most health insurance plans cover Physical Therapy, but the amount of coverage varies drastically plan-to-plan.

We are contracted with:

  • Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield- All plans
  • Pacific Source
  • Cigna
  • Aetna
  • United Healthcare (some plans)

Don’t see your insurance listed above? 

No need to worry, we’ve got options to work with everyone. If you have health insurance (and choose to use it), we are happy to go over what your costs will be with you. Each plan and the amount of coverage depends on your individual insurance plans.

We also offer discounted cash-pay options for PT, which surprisingly can actually save you on total out-of-pocket healthcare dollars because of the ridiculously high deductibles these days.

And, if you’d like to self-submit the payments to your insurance, we’ll gladly mail you the coding/billing info at no cost.  

We are happy to discuss any of your benefits, and estimate your costs for each visit- Call or e-mail us today!
