A large, heated, indoor, private swimming pool is one of the healing tools used by the Active Life Physical Therapy Center located in the Brookings-Harbor Shopping Center in Harbor.

Formerly Pacific Northwest Physical Therapy, the Active Life Physical Therapy Center continues to offer "high quality, caring, hands-on therapy," according to its new owner Patrick Dodgen, MS, PT.

Dodgen, who has 20 years experience, explains that his office specializes in total joint-replacement therapy.

"My desire is to help you reach your goals and return to a healthier, active life. I hope that you will feel cared for as you receive beneficial treatment and are given tools to assist you in maintaining and furthering your progress."

Dodgen was the owner of Crescent City Physical Therapy for seven years. His wife and family have lived in Brookings for nine years.

He gained experience in a variety of settings including hospital, home health, outpatient orthopedic clinics and injured worker centers.

He was an instructor at Southwestern Oregon Community College for two years.

Dodgen's staff includes Julie Moerke, who has six years experience as a physical therapy assistant.

His wife Susan Dodgen is his office manager. Pat Van Ooyen is his receptionist and Kristin Morris is a physical therapy aid and patient care coordinator.

  • Weak demand hits China factory, services firms in March, more easing seen
    BEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Surveys of China's factory and services sectors showed stubborn weakness in the world's second-biggest economy in March, adding to bets that Beijing will have to roll out more policy support to avert a sharper slowdown. Three separate surveys showed Chinese companies shed jobs last month as they struggled with soft demand and deflationary pressures, suggesting that economic growth may have slipped below 7 percent in the first quarter of 2015, which would be the weakest in six years. "We expect first-quarter growth to drop to 6.8 percent and the government might start easing policies significantly in the second quarter," said Zhang Zhiwei, an economist at Deutsche Bank in Hong Kong, adding that the central bank may relax banks' reserve requirement ratio (RRR) as early as this week or next. "Growth faces headwinds from the property slowdown and a fiscal slide," said Zhang, referring to a fall-off in government revenues that many worry could further dampen economic growth by crimping investment.

Crude oil prices continued to decline as negotiations between Iran and world powers over nuclear technology extended beyond a deadline.
