Thayne joined Kitsap Physical Therapy and Sports Clinics in 2011.

Thayne was born and raised in rural North Dakota and participated in competitive sports through high school. Outside of lettering in football, basketball and golf he was also involved in Honor Society, Future Farmers of America, choir, swing choir and played American Legion baseball in the summers. Football became Thayne’s real passion during his junior year in high school. This is where he got his first exposure to physical therapy. He spent a month on crutches after a hip injury that first sent him to rehabilitation. This fueled his passion for the human body, athletic performance training, and sports medicine. Thayne played collegiate football at the University of North Dakota and is a member of a Division II National Championship football team (2001). Through his time in sports, he has experienced many injuries himself and has used this along with his knowledge of sports and movement to direct his continuing education.

APPI Pilates Instructor/Educator (CPI)

Professional Interests:
Orthopedics, Pilates for Spinal Rehabilitation and Osteoporosis, Senior Fitness, balance/fall prevention, patient education to promote wellness and life-long fitness.

Lynn became interested in physical therapy because it offered a unique opportunity to combine her interests in orthopedics, promoting health and wellness and helping people improve their quality of life. In addition to her work with patients, Lynn works as a Senior Fitness Instructor for our Senior Wellness Program, which consists of aerobic conditioning and resistance, balance and flexibility training. Lynn's passion for geriatric physical therapy is evidenced in the way she works with older adults to increase their physical activity and reach their fitness goals.

Working in a positive environment with a team of people focused on patient/client care has helped motivate Lynn to develop and integrate a challenging new Pilates program (which focuses on core strengthening, spinal stabilization, osteoporosis and balance for fall prevention) into our STEP program. The Pilates program is designed to improve range of motion, overall strength and conditioning and balance. In addition to those benefits, Lynn is excited to see her efforts provide opportunities for patients/clients to widen their social networks and encourage new friendships. "The STEP program is an integral part of transitioning patients from traditional rehabilitation into fitness and preventive programs to help prevent future injuries and improve quality of life."

Extracurricular Interests/Hobbies:
When Lynn isn't working, she enjoys long trail runs, hiking, winter skiing and spending time with her family and friends. She likes self-improvement activities, expanding her mind into new areas such as quantum physics, bird-watching and opera. Her hobbies include beekeeping, gardening and home improvement projects with her husband. Lynn also volunteers as a back-country ranger in the Snoqualmie Pass area and are involved in many charitable activities such as Kids Kloset, Caring Clowns International and local running fund-raisers.

One of the unique features of this office is that we are integrated with a full service fitness center. As our patients progress, we are able to transition them into using more advanced levels of load that are typically seen in a fitness center environment. This creates many advantages for the patient and it also provides them a platform for continuing to exercise independently after they are done with their formal therapy sessions.

The Next STEP staff includes exercise physiologists, kinesiologists and physical therapist assistants who are experts in movement, physical dysfunction and disease.

Occupational Medicine

A unique specialty area of physical therapy involves working with and preventing injuries among our nation’s work force. Workers have unique care needs because the ultimate goal is to return them to work as soon as possible. This goal must be addressed with unique interventions including work conditioning, work simulation-based exercises, and testing the fitness level of the injured worker to ensure they meet the demands listed for their occupation using a Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE). But what if we could prevent on-the-job injuries from happening all together? Imagine the cost savings to both the worker and the employer. Research continues to prove the great return on investment these programs provide. Steve Goldrick can provide the following services:

Physical Capacity Evaluations

We utilize the ErgoScience system which consists of a series of standardized tests customized for each patient’s work history and future work demands. This 5 hour standardized test measures load tolerances found in most jobs and is administered by a licensed PT certified in the ErgoScience system.

Work Conditioning

Work conditioning is an individualized and structured rehabilitation program designed to improve function and quality of life with a goal of returning to work. It consists of 2 hours of functional exercises, injury prevention and wellness education focusing on the critical demands of the job to which the patient is returning. This program provides coordinated and outcome-oriented services in an outpatient setting.

Ergonomic Worksite Evaluation

This is a comprehensive analysis of the physical layout, equipment used and specific tasks required for a job to identify risk factors for musculoskeletal injuries among workers. Specific job site modifications are made to help keep the work environment safe from repetitive use and poor ergonomics in an efficient and cost effective manner.

Women's Health Programs

Ellen Bass, PT, DPT, MTC is a women's health specialist and provides treatments such as:

  • Pelvic Pain - Various women experience pain in the lower abdominal or pelvic regions during the course of their lives for many reasons. Physical therapy can be helpful with problems stemming from the muscles, nerves and supporting structures.
  • Urinary Incontinence - Urinary incontinence is not considered a normal consequence of aging and it is not something a person must accept. Physical therapy programs including exercises for strengthening the pelvic floor muscles and education regarding bladder retraining can be used alone or in conjunction with medications and surgery to treat incontinence. Biofeedback and electric stimulation may also be used to help retrain the pelvic floor muscles.
  • Osteoporosis - A physical therapist can design an exercise program with an emphasis on weight-bearing, resistive exercises and correct posture/body mechanics. This will improve muscle strength, bone density and help patients perform daily activities safely.
  • Pre/Post Pregnancy Management - Many physical changes occur during and after pregnancy that put a woman at greater risk for injury during exercise and daily activities which can lead to back and pelvic pain. A physical therapist specializing in managing these factors can be very helpful in demonstrating body mechanics and exercises to prevent and/or manage pain.
