Our History

North Tahoe Physical Therapy was established in the 1980′s in Incline Village, NV.

In 2003, Jane O’Brien, MSPT, became the 3rd owner of North Tahoe Physical Therapy.

Jane O’Brien, MSPT, director and owner of North Tahoe Physical Therapy, says, “Many people think of physical therapy as exercise and hot packs. We want to change that perception. We believe that a hands-on, intuitive approach combined with movement is the key to healing and restoration of function. Our staff has dedicated many years learning to use our hands as tools for healing.”
