La Pine & Sunriver Physical Therapy

"Providing legendary care since 1987 "

Gail Smith, PT and President

"My approach is to work with the body rather than forcing change upon the body"

Gail was born in Anchorage, Alaska and raised in Eagle River, Alaska. For 2 summers prior to Physical therapy school Gail worked as a nursing assistant in a thermal unit treating burns and frostbite. She sought this experience in order to determine whether she could handle working with patients in this kind of pain. She learned she could, as long a there were measures that could be taken to minimize the suffering. That experience has influenced her entire physical therapy ca-reer.
After graduation from Pacific University 's physical therapy program in 1984 she returned to Alaska to work in a large out-patient physical therapy clinic. In 1987 she returned to Oregon and has been in private practice since, specializing in gentle manual therapies including orthobionomy, craniosacral therapy, myofascial release and mobilization with movement. Her passion is the relief of pain and suffering.

Gail lives with her husband, Jim, their 2 sons, 2 Labrador retrievers and 2 cats south of Sunriver. She has enjoyed volunteering in her son's classrooms and enjoys supporting their athletics includ-ing basketball and snow and wake boarding. The family also enjoys camping and fishing. The Three Rivers SMART reading program also receives her attention. She has been a member of a Sunriver Area Public Library book group for a dozen years.
