DR. curtis dodson



I earned a BS in Exercise and Sports Science at Oregon State University and a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from George Fox University in Newberg, OR. 

In PT school, my primary focus for research was in coaching science, specifically the optimal methods and delivery of cueing in order to promote skill acquisition and task transfer as it relates to motor control and motor learning.

I played football throughout high school, which lead to a walk on position at Oregon State University where I played DE and FB for two seasons (07-08 and 08-09). It was at OSU, that I had my first exposure to the olympic lifts and periodized programming for sport. Having trained and competed in powerlifting through high school up to this point, the D-1 style of sports performance training really helped expand my knowledge base in strength and conditioning. Aside from a background in playing D-1 collegiate football, I also have an extensive background in competitive powerlifting through WABDL (World Association of Benchers and Deadlifters).

Currently, I work with athletes of all skill levels with a deep passion for preparing individuals for competition. Whether that is on the field or on the platform, I help each individual perform at their best while integrating rehab principles to help them reach their goals. 

Curtis is available for Athletic Assessments, Rehabilitative Consultations and Appointments on-site at the Power Station & CrossFit Hood River and leads a drop-in Mobility & Movement Prep Class on Tuesdays at 4pm beginning September 2018
