Patient's recovery, testing & ergonomics specific to each patient's task


A cutting edge specialty rehabilitation program developed by Bud Herigstad, PTCEAS, from Newberg, OR. The program was developed to help injured workers & motor vehicle accident victims return to work, faster & more efficiently while minimizing risk of re-injury. 

It is also a tool for physicians as they coordinate their patient's workman's compensation & motor vehicle claims, as it can provide detailed medical documentation on patient's strength & task limitations, including tasks specific to their job. This program allows the referring provider to select the services needed. It is customizable to patient's injuries and the tasks they need to safely return to their particular job.

Our Method

 Bud Herigstad, PT, CEAS, is a Certified Ergonomic Assessment Specialist trained in industrial rehabilitation & ergonomic intervention strategies. He utilizes an approach to treat, rehabilitate & problem solve challenging job tasks.

  • Job task simulations (individual to each patient) can be used in order to acclimate each individual; this helps to strengthen & build endurance for challenging tasks safely.

  • Ergonomic solutions can be provided to help increase safety & minimize future injuries.

  • Additionally, Chehalem Physical Therapy offers a full rehab gym for patients as they work toward independence.  ​
