Penny S Coppersmith, PT

Penny is an orthopedic physical therapist, founder and principal partner of Coppersmith Orthopedic & Sports Physical Therapy.

I enjoy the challenge of working with patients who have musculoskeletal problems: from evaluation and hands on treatment to teaching patients how to creatively and efficiently manage their issues. I have enjoyed practicing in this same neighborhood since 1980, getting to know each patient, their friends and families and the community.

Jeff Coppersmith, PT, MS, CSCS

Jeff has practiced physical therapy since 1984 with an interest in exercise prescription and physical therapy research.

I like many aspects of physical therapy, specifically being applicable to my academic and research backgrounds with the practicality of working directly with patients. The human body can do great things and I enjoy facilitating patients of all ages and conditions on their return to normal activities.

Gary Hansen, PT

Gary has been an active physical therapist in Seattle since 1984. His athletic background aids his work with all patients to achieve maximum results.

I once heard an orthopedic surgeon say that he thought of all of his patients as athletes. As a former athlete, this is very meaningful to me. Every patient (high level athlete or retired individual) deserves relief from pain and dysfunction. If your “sport” is basketball or soccer, golf, gardening, or cleaning y our house, I will create an individualized treatment plan, including strengthening and education to allow you to become an active participant in getting back to your activities.

Daniel Ng, DPT

Working primarily in outpatient rehabilitation since graduating, Daniel has experience in orthopedics and manual therapy with patients of all ages. His treatments include hands-on techniques, the design of exercise programs to correct musculoskeletal imbalances, and functional/body mechanics training to assist in preventing re-injury. A Seattle native, Daniel enjoys playing basketball, running (marathons), cycling (STP), rock climbing, and hiking with his dog.

I work with each patient to develop individualized goals to return to what they enjoy doing, including identifying the factors that may contribute to the patient's pathology by looking at the entire body, beyond the just the area of injury.

Education and professional affiliations: Bachelor of Science Biochemistry, University of Washington, 2007; Doctor of Physical Therapy, Chapman University, 2012; Washington State Licensure, Member American Physical Therapy Association, Orthopedic Section, and the Pediatric Sports Medicine Special Interest Group.
