Physical Therapy Clinic Planned for Dahlia Building

One of the few remaining unused commercial spaces in the Dahlia building in downtown Canby has been leased by one of the area’s premier providers of manual-based physical therapy and sports medicine services, The Canby Current has learned.

Therapeutic Associates Physical Therapy, a partnership of individually owned and operated clinics whose history dates back 60 years and which boasts about 70 locations across the Pacific Northwest, has leased about two-thirds of the Dahlia’s remaining space, which faces North Ivy Street.

Their new location at the Dahlia is currently under construction and is expected to open as soon as renovations are completed — likely in August.

“They are thrilled to be in Canby and in the historic downtown,” Mary Hanlon, founder and principal of Hanlon Development — which is the managing member of the Dahlia and is leading the redevelopment of the Canby Civic Block — told the Current. “They are a great, regional group, and they’re really glad to have this profile downtown. They get it.”

Therapeutic Associates was founded in 1952 by physical therapists Jim McKillip and Robert Dicus, and was one of the pioneers of outpatient physical therapy practices.

Today, it is a physical therapist-owned and operated organization with a broad range of expertise specializing in the whole body, with locations throughout Oregon as well as Washington, Idaho and California.

“We invest in every city and town we serve with unparalleled patient care and so much more,” the collective says on its website. “This includes traditionally working with physicians, nurses, case managers, and others involved with our patients.”

Therapeutic Associates says it also engages with employers to prevent employee injuries, sharing education through healthcare forums and participating in community events to assist in the well-being of workers and our neighbors.
