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.

  • Yellen tone suggests choppiness for markets ahead
    U.S. stock investors have been enjoying an extended period of low volatility and steady gains, but with the Federal Reserve on track to raise interest rates this year and major indexes near records, the market could get a bit choppier in coming weeks. Fed Chair Janet Yellen on Friday said she expected the U.S. central bank to raise rates in 2015, though the process was expected to be gradual, with the timing of the first hike dependent on the strength of economic data. Yellen's comments kept the likelihood of a September rate increase high.
  • Iran says OPEC unlikely to change output ceiling: Mehr news agency
    OPEC is unlikely to change its production ceiling when the group meets in June, Iran's Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh said on Sunday, according to the semi-official Mehr news agency. "Lowering OPEC's production ceiling requires consensus between all members ... under current conditions it seems unlikely that the OPEC production ceiling will change," Zanganeh was quoted as saying. Last month, Zanganeh said the producing group should cut its target daily crude production by at least 5 percent, or approximately 1.5 million barrels per day.
  • Greece hasn't got the money to make June IMF repayment: interior minister
    ATHENS/LONDON (Reuters) - Greece cannot make debt repayments to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) next month unless it achieves a deal with creditors, its interior minister said on Sunday, the most explicit remarks yet from Athens about the likelihood of default if talks fail. Shut out of bond markets and with bailout aid locked, cash-strapped Athens has been scraping state coffers to meet debt obligations and to pay wages and pensions. After four months of talks with its euro zone partners and the IMF, the leftist-led government is still scrambling for a deal that could release up to 7.2 billion euros ($7.9 billion) in remaining aid to avert bankruptcy.
