Renée Johnson is a manual physical therapist and the newest therapist to join the Synergy Manual Physical Therapy family. Renée earned her Bachelor of Science in Human Physiology at the University of Oregon, and achieved her Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) at Oregon's Pacific University. Renée continues to develop professionally as she completes her manual therapy fellowship through the Institute of Manipulative Physiotherapy and Clinical Training (IMPACT).

Renée was first a patient when she was originally introduced to physical therapy at 18 years of age. She was injured as a pre-professional contemporary ballet and modern dancer in New York City, NY. The experience so inspired her that she changed course from pursuing a professional dance career to pursue her physical therapy license. It was while in Eugene Oregon, earning her Bachelor's degree that her specific interest in orthopedic manual physical therapy was borne as she had the unique opportunity to work alongside and study under members of the board of the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT); including Kent Keyser MS, PT, OCS, COMT, ATC, FFCFMT, FAAOMPT, CKTP and William Temes, PT, MS, OCS, COMT, FAAOMPT.

In Renée's case, it was "once you go manual therapy – you never go back", and thus, she continued to put herself in the forefront of opportunities to learn from some of the greatest skilled manual therapists of our time. She chose to attend Pacific University in order to study under Brett Windsor PT, PhDc, MPA, OCS, FAAOMPT, the orthopedic professor at that time, and Ann Porter Hoke, PT, DPT, OCS, FCAMPT, FAAOMPT, a frequent guest faculty at the university. Additionally, she has pursued manual therapy post-graduate certifications and recently achieved her Diplomat of Manipulative Therapy (Dip.MT) and received her Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT) in 2014 with IMPACT under the instruction of Gail Molloy DSc, PT, COMT, OCS; Fred Stoot BMR (PT), FCAMT, COMT and Jim Meadows BScPT, MCPA, FCAMT.

On the weekends you can find Renée running and hiking with her boxer named Trigger Point. She has already conquered 10 of our state's challenging 14ers.
