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.

  • Ferdinand Piech resigns, ending an era at Volkswagen
    HAMBURG/FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Ferdinand Piech, a towering figure at Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) for more than two decades, resigned as its chairman on Saturday after losing a showdown he had provoked with Chief Executive Martin Winterkorn, ending an era at the iconic German carmaker. Piech, the 78-year-old grandson of the inventor of the Volkswagen Beetle Ferdinand Porsche, had previously seen off other executives who crossed him, including his own hand-picked successor as CEO, Bernd Pischetsrieder. "The members of the steering committee came to a consensus that, in the light of the past weeks, the mutual trust necessary for successful cooperation was no longer there," the six-member panel said in a statement after another meeting on Saturday.
  • Abercrombie & Fitch to ditch 'sexualized marketing': Washington Post
    Retail clothing chain Abercrombie & Fitch will end by July its "sexualized marketing," after years of blanketing its web sites, store windows and shopping bags with photos of half-naked men, according to the Washington Post. It will also stop using shirtless models or lifeguards at events and store openings for both the Abercrombie & Fitch and the Hollister brands, the newspaper reported late Friday, citing an announcement. Abercrombie & Fitch had come under fire in recent years for its strict dress code and sexualized marketing, and has been in a Supreme Court case for denying a Muslim woman a job because of her head scarf. The changes come as the company faces slumping sales, as teens increasingly move away from the brand, according to the Washington Post.
  • Deutsche faces tough task paring back retail, investment banking
    Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) faces a long and costly battle, analysts say, to sell Postbank (DPBGn.DE) and pare investment banking, the new strategic goals it outlined late on Friday. Deutsche will face an especially difficult challenge in selling off Postbank without having to post losses. “We're worried about jobs at Postbank,” Carsten Schneider, finance expert and deputy SPD parliamentary floor leader, told Reuters. Postbank could fetch close to 3.6 billion euros ($3.9 billion) if it sells for a multiple of 0.8 times a book value of 4.5 billion euros, according to analysts' calculations.
