Jessie and Carol from Osprey Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine Bend, Oregon have been friends for over 15 years. A friendship that blossomed over Jessie’s love of personal training and Carol finding her way in the health and wellness world. As Carol progressed through her education, they began talking about how amazing it would be to offer physical therapy and personal training alongside each other in a very intimate and individualized environment.
Well, here they are today living out their dream while challenging the status quo of what personal training and physical therapy are and how they are perceived. These two are a dynamic team who have always lifted each other and are now here to do the same for the community they both love and call home.
Dr. Carol Roeder
Physical Therapist, DPT, SFMA.
Dr. Carol Roeder, PT, DPT was born and raised right here in Bend, Oregon. She graduated with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2015 from The University of St. Augustine. Carol has spent the early part of her career working in outpatient orthopedic clinics in the Greater San Diego area. In 2020 she decided it was time to return home to Bend where her family has continued to reside, and her heart never truly left. This is when the dream of Osprey PT and Sports Medicine was born. Carol is joined by her husband, Paul, and their dog, Ren.
Carol has her Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) certification from the Functional Movement Systems program. This allows her to bring a functional movement pattern-based perspective to her physical therapy practice. Her treatment style has a strong manual component including the utilization of various soft tissue techniques as well as joint mobilization for all regions of the body. Carol firmly believes in supporting and guiding her patients on a path to independence in their recovery which is done through individualized and comprehensive home exercise programs. She LOVES her patients but wants to give them the tools to not NEED her!
In their free time, you can find the Roeders outdoors - fishing, hiking, or snowboarding depending on the season. Carol also trains for and races in triathlons. A passion she picked up in San Diego fueled by her desire to lead by example demonstrating a healthy lifestyle for her patients. She'll however be the first to admit that it's not always easy! This past year she completed her first 70.3 Half Ironman distance and has her eyes set on many more! Carol also enjoys playing tennis with her mom, bringing back memories of when they used to run up and down the basketball court together.

Aspiring Therapy Pup
Ren has known since he was a young pup that he wanted to do something where he could serve people. He was finally able to make this dream a reality when he came to his new home with Paul and Carol in 2020 at the age of two. More so when his mom got her new office in 2022 as there is more space for him to roam and interact with patients while also having a safe space of his own in the break room when he needs to rest.
Unfortunately, Ren had a bit of a rough start jumping between owners which has left him a little anxious at times, but once he gets to know you, you’re in the pack for life and you can always expect to be greeted by wiggles and a smile when you come in to the office. So please, be patient with the boy. He has so much love to give but has to learn he can trust you first.
In his spare time, Ren loves to sleep, go for car rides, go on runs and hikes with Mom and Dad, and snuggle. Like his mom, Ren is a lover of all things soft and you can find them curled up on the couch together under the softest blanket in the house on any given day. He is also a connoisseur of fine food and is the pickiest eater in the house.
