The Heart of Healing: 30 Years of Compassionate Care with Denise Jerome PT

Denise Jerome, PT

Denise is celebrating 30 years as a physical therapist this May!

Prior to living in Bend, Denise spent her career working for small rural hospitals in Maine, New Hampshire, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Minnesota before settling in Alaska and starting her own solo cash based practice.

She originally fell in love with Bend 30 years ago during a gap year before PT school.  With her kids headed off to college in the lower 48, and in search of more daylight hours in the winter, and a climate that allows her to ride her bike to work for many months of the year, Denise found her permanent home in Bend in 2020.  

Denise was drawn to PT as an injured high school athlete, in awe of the manual skills of her small town Osteopathic family physician.  She intended to head to DO school, but found her happy spot working in outpatient Orthopedics, where she was able to spend much more time working with patients than a typical physician schedule would allow.

Denise appreciates working at Focus for many reasons – the integrity and years of experience of the staff, the ability to spend time developing a therapeutic relationship with her patients, and the kind and supportive leadership of the owners, Burke and Amy.  As part of her continuing quest to learn and improve her skills, she has recently taken on the role of Clinical Director, working to help with the success of our small community based practice. 

Areas of clinical interest include lower extremity injuries, pelvic pain, spine care, core strengthening. 

When she is not helping her patients move better, get stronger and live with less pain, Denise likes to be outside on the trails or the river, dancing, cooking, reading and knitting.
