Powered By Motion was founded by Doctor of physical therapy, Roland Cochrun, with the purpose of creating a locally-owned practice with a family feel. The clinic was started with the vision of providing an elite service that is centered around the patient's needs. Listening is our most powerful tool. As a patient in our practice, we hope to position ourselves as a lifeline and advocate for your health care. We emphasize educating our patients to improve understanding of their symptoms and how they can be overcome. Our staff shares an enthusiasm for continuing their education and better ways to share our knowledge with patients and the community. At Powered By Motion, serving our patients is our top priority, and our goal is to prove this to everyone who walks in the door.
Roland was born in Oregon and has remained here his entire life, achieving his Doctorate at Pacific University in Hillsboro, OR. Discovering his passion for health and exercise at the age of 15, Roland has always enjoyed expanding and sharing his knowledge with others. Physical Therapy was the perfect fit, combining the expertise of the human body and healing through movement. Roland's earliest mentors were private practice owners that were able to create a clinical environment that was enjoyable for both the patient and the employees. Since then, it had always been his dream to open a clinic that was fueled by enthusiasm and positive patient experiences.
In his time away from work, Roland enjoys being in the outdoors or around people. His hobbies include hiking, backpacking, golf, snowboarding, and all forms of exercise. Roland loves food! He uses all excuses to try new foods and enjoys preparing meals for his friends and family.
