FARR JOINS PT CLINIC

Ryan Farr decided to go far away for college to learn a different perspective to physical therapy.

After attending Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, Farr said he decided to head to Europe to continue his studies. He attended University of Ulster in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Farr said he had a choice between two schools. After weighing his options, he decided the university in Belfast was the best choice to get a feel for a different culture and to get a world view on physical therapy.

Here its more sports and acute therapy, Farr said. There its more chronic therapy.

In Europe, they use there hands more, he said. Its a lot of manual therapy.

After graduating Sept. 10, Farr, with the help of his wife, Hayley, found an opening at Coastal Physical Therapy. After a phone interview, he came to Brookings and started working in October.

I love the human body, Farr said about his decision to be a physical therapist. There is great joy and satisfaction in improving peoples health.

His specialty at Coastal Physical Therapy is aquatic therapy. Farr said he works three days a week in Gold Beach and two days in the pool at Best Western Brookings Inn.

Its fun. People love it, Farr said about aquatic therapy.

Farr said physical therapy helps people who are stroke victims, who have heart conditions, have knee and back problems, the whole gamut.

Much of the healing process is up to the clients, though, not just the physical therapist, he said.

Its important for people to know they have a lot of control over their condition, Farr said. Improving the quality of life, thats what its all about.

Farr is available by appointment by calling (541) 469-7314. Coastal Physical Therapy is at 580 Fifth St.

  • Europe won't let Athens go under, says Greek minister
    Greece's finance minister accused creditors of trying to "terrorize" Greeks into accepting austerity, warning Europe stood to lose as much as Athens if the country is forced out of the euro after a referendum on Sunday on bailout terms. After a week in which Greece defaulted, shuttered its banks and began rationing cash, Greeks vote on Sunday on whether to accept or reject tough conditions sought by international creditors to extend a lending lifeline that has kept the debt-stricken country afloat. The left-wing government is urging a 'No' vote, saying Greece's European partners are bluffing when they warn that would mean a Greek departure from Europe's single currency, with unforeseeable consequences for Greece, Europe and the global economy.
  • A Greek challenge for 'Mr Europe' Juncker
    It's sultry early July and an emotional Jean-Claude Juncker is on the stump, calling for a 'Yes' vote in a referendum on which he says hangs the future of Europe - and his own career. "A 'Yes' ... would have a significance ... well beyond Europe," he tells voters. This was 2005 and Juncker was addressing his fellow Luxemburgers.
  • Aetna to buy Humana for $37 billion in largest insurance deal
    The combination will push Aetna close to Anthem Inc's (ANTM.N) No.2 insurer spot by membership, and would nearly triple Aetna's Medicare Advantage business. The deal will face antitrust scrutiny but if it goes through it would dwarf the previous largest insurance deal announced just this week, where Swiss property and casualty giant ACE Ltd (ACE.N) announced it was buying Chubb Corp (CB.N) for $28 billion.
