Ryan Torgrude Physical Therapist

“I believe the manual therapy approach in combination with exercise and education lead to highly successful outcomes with my patients. I have a special interest in treating injuries related to adventure sports. My wife and I are outdoor enthusiasts and enjoy spending time backpacking, mountain biking, and canoeing in the summer and taking snowboard trips out west in the winter.”
