Jason Bruns

Jason Bruns, MPT graduated from Chapman University in 1995 with Bachelor of Science in Movement and Exercise Science, and earned his Master of Physical Therapy in 1998 from Western University of Health Sciences. Jason moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1998, and ultimately found his home in Hayden Idaho in 2004. Jason is married and spends his time with his wife and two boys. He enjoys playing golf, snowboarding, hiking, camping, landscaping, and playing his bass guitar. Jason’s Physical Therapy philosophy is rooted in the regional inter-dependence and biomechanics model of examination and treatment. This model not only assesses and treats the area of pain, but also addresses areas above and below the painful area and looks at the whole person to optimize treatment outcomes.

Jason owned and operated North Star Physical Therapy and Wellness in Hayden Idaho from 2014 to 2022, and has moved on to join an excellent team of Physical Therapists and Physicians at OPTI.
