Welcome to Summer!

We are excited to introduce our new staff therapist Ray Arreguin, DPT to our clinic family. He is a fantastic addition to our team so stop on by and say hi! Read more about Ray below.

Staff Transition

Introducing Ray Arreguin PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS, who joins us from one of our Eugene clinics. We are lucky to have him!


After graduating with his doctorate in physical therapy from Ohio University in 2011, Ray moved to Oregon to pursue his interests in orthopedics, sports medicine, and manual therapy.  He has spent the past 5 years in Eugene, where he worked closely with the Eugene Timbers Futbol Club, offering Functional Movement Screens, ACL tear prevention clinics, and nutrition information.  He is a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, and is currently working on his manual therapy certificate through NAIOMT.  He enjoys seeing patients of all ages and conditions.  Outside of work, Ray enjoys spending time exploring all of Oregon's outdoor opportunities including cycling, hiking, camping, golf, and competing in triathlons.  He is excited to learn more about the Portland area.

Dance Medicine Program

We would like to highlight one of our specialty programs here at Downtown Portland TAI: Amy Benton and her dance medicine program. Read about her background and expertise then come on in to see her!

Amy Benton, PT, DPT, CSCS, SFMA, FMS has been a physical therapist with Therapeutic Associates Inc for 8 years with a focus on treating dancers and aerialists.

She returned home to Portland and performed with AWOL Dance Collective for 4 years, combining her dance with aerial arts.


Amy’s passion for training movement led her to become a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist while actively pursuing her manual therapy certification through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy. In the clinic, she treats dancers of all ages and abilities with a hands on approach combined with her training in the Functional Movement System, Pilates and Yoga to provide comprehensive, technique centered rehabilitation.

Tony's Wheel-A-Thon

This past May, Clinic Director Tony Rocklin participated in the Wheel-A-Thon, a program he founded over 20 years ago when playing basketball for Oregon State University. The current OSU Basketball Team was in attendance participating, as well as Tony and some of his fellow alumni. The WAT is a program that raises money for the IMPACT (Individualized Movement and Physical Activity for Children Today) Program and the Multiple Sclerosis Exercise Program.

The MS clinic is comprised of student volunteers who work with community members with Multiple Sclerosis to perform personalized exercise routines. The main focus is on resistance training because it has been shown to play a role in helping individuals with MS maintain function in activities of daily living. This program is not a federally funded program so WAT volunteers help to raise money that they need in order to acquire new exercise equipment.

The IMPACT program is solely supported by student volunteers. These volunteers are paired with children from the community who have varying degrees of physical and cognitive disabilities. The program takes place in both a gym setting and pool setting where each volunteer works individually with a child on improving their physical abilities and serves as a mentor to foster positive social interaction.

Congratulations, Tony, on creating such a successful program to benefit these organizations!

June is National Men's Health Month!

The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This month gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury. The response has been overwhelming with thousands of awareness activities in the USA and around the globe.
