Longview Physical & Sports Therapy (LP&ST) was founded in March 2004 by physical therapists Bruce Peterson and Dave Knoeppel.
Bruce came to Longview in 1978 to work for Longview Physicians Physical Therapy. He became a co-owner in 1988. During the mid-’90s, the business was sold to HealthSouth. At that time, Dave was working for HealthSouth’s branch in Everett, Washington. He transferred to Longview in 1998 and later partnered with Bruce to form Longview Physical & Sports Therapy.
LP&ST was first located in the Fir Medical Complex in Longview. Bruce and Dave moved the business to Pacific Surgical Institute’s new facility when it opened in June 2006.
Today, LP&ST is staffed by six physical therapists, a certified athletic trainer, and two physical therapist assistants. The clinicians at LP&ST have more than 90 years of combined professional experience.
