If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.

Biography

April Henderson specializes in spine and general orthopedic injuries. After she graduated from Asbury University in Kentucky, she worked as a strength and conditioning specialist and trained members of the NFL, NBA, MLB, and members of the US Olympic bobsled team before completing her doctorate of physical therapy.

Outside of work, April enjoys being in the great outdoors. This includes rock climbing, stand up paddle boarding, swimming and hiking. A college athlete, she played varsity basketball and tennis at Asbury University, where her interest in physical therapy was first kindled after a knee injury.
