Ben Baarspul, PT, DPT

Position with NIPT:
Physical Therapist

NIPT Clinic Location:
Coeur d’Alene

I was born and raised in Chehalis Washington to a foreign language teacher mom and forester dad. I have two older sisters who both still live in Washington. I moved away for college to George Fox, studying health and human performance (athletic training). Once I graduated, I worked as an ATC and personal trainer for a couple years before applying to PT school at Pacific University. I finished up there and was accepted into a Maitland fellowship program with Kaiser in the bay area. When I completed the Kaiser residency I returned to Oregon where I worked in outpatient and sports clinics. I met my wife in 2008 and we were married in October of 2009. We have two kiddos: Cedar (7) and Elia (3). In 2021 we made the decision to move to North Idaho and settled into a home in Post Falls. We love the culture, community and outdoor sports here. I’m excited to start this next work chapter in my PT journey with North Idaho PT.
