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.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
