BOOMERANG IS OPEN AGAIN!
BOOMERANG AND YOU DURING THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC....
We are open. To keep everyone safe we have limited the number of therapists in the clinic each day and are staggering appointment times. Also, we have strict cleaning and sanitation procedures. Give us a call to schedule your appointment.
We are also providing Telehealth appointments. This is a 1:1 treatment session provided by your physical therapist via the internet. Boomerang is utilizing ZOOM, a web service which allows people to have face-to-face meetings over their computers. JJ, Ari, and Victoria have been honing her Telehealth skills and are ready to meet with you, in the comfort and safety of your own home.
SUPER IMPORTANT: THINGS ARE CHANGING HOURLY....IF YOU DON'T SEE YOUR INSURANCE LISTED HERE...CALL US AND WE WILL GET ANSWERS FOR YOU!

If you have neurological challenges.
You may have heard we specialize in Parkinson’s disease, and this is definitely a passion of our owner JJ, and we have developed many programs focused on slowing the progression of PD and optimizing movement. But, this is not the only type of neurological condition that we focus on: PT/OT/exercise in general can optimize many conditions including but not limited to strokes, MS, peripheral neuropathy, traumatic brain injuries including concussions, as well as some of the less seen diagnoses like multiple system atrophy
If you have pain or an injury.
We have two clinicians who joined our team so that we could better alleviate pain… back pain, knee pain, groin pain, neck pain, headaches, foot pain, shoulder or joint. Are you an athlete who is concerned that your pain is affecting you game? Come and see us!
If you have trouble keeping your balance.
Do you roll over in the morning to the room spinning? Or do you have a general sense of unease when you are walking? JJ, our clinical director can help! Prior to starting Boomerang, she ran a Balance/Vestibular program in Portland/Vancouver and has taught classes on balance challenges/vertigo/dizziness; she can help you figure out the cause of your problem and then work with you to optimize your function and minimize you risk for FALLS!
If you have bladder or bowel challenges.
Pelvic Floor Issues:
Are you tired of leaking when you cough? Sneeze? Jump? Do you need to know where every bathroom is “just in case”? Do you have pain with intercourse? Boomerang has a clinician who is trained in pelvic floor health for both men and women.
If you would like to have a personal trainer help you perform or live better.

Personal Training at Boomerang can here help you define your goals, reach your goals, and maintain your goals so you may live your best life.

Meet The Team
PT DPT CEEAA
My name is JJ Flentke and I am the owner of Boomerang Therapy Works, a physical therapy and wellness center designed for the aging patient and people with neuromuscular disorders... because that is my passion.
I have my BS in Physical Therapy, my Masters in Public Health/Health Administration and my Doctorate in Physical Therapy with an emphasis on the aging process.
Hi, my name is Ari Reiter. I am a firm believer in the power of exercise, a big fan of functional eccentric movements, and finding ways to improve anyone's balance. Boomerang Therapy Works is providing me with an incredible opportunity to work with complex and interesting patients who I can help and learn from at the same time.
I earned my degree in Sociology and Religious Studies from Franklin and Marshall College, and then worked at a Bio-pharmaceutical recruiting firm. I attended Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, earning my Doctorate of Physical Therapy with an emphasis in Adult Neuro-Rehabilitation.
Hello, my name is Victoria. I have a keen interest in how people move their bodies and interact with the spaces they live in. I love problem-solving with my patients to help discover new strategies for movement that can help with anything from daily tasks to getting back into sports. I love treating neurological and orthopedic conditions but also specialize in women's health and pelvic health rehabilitation (for both men and women). This includes treatment for urinary incontinence, prolapse, pelvic pain, and pain after prostate procedures to name a few.
Outside of work I spend time hiking in beautiful mountains, skiing, and cooking. Although originally from the East Coast, I love being outside in the Pacific Northwest.
I earned my bachelor's degree from Oberlin College in Biology and worked as a biologist for many years, eventually earning my master's in Biology from Portland State University. I taught Anatomy and Physiology for 3 years before attending Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and earning my Doctorate of Physical Therapy.
