Dr. Stason, D.O., is the Medical Director for the Comprehensive Pain Program here at Progressive Rehabilitation Associates. He is an osteopathic physician who specializes in musculoskeletal pain, mild Traumatic Brain Injury, vision issues, dizziness and psycho-somatic complaints. He is board certified in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine through the American Osteopathic Association. He uses conventional medicine including medications, laboratory evaluation, imaging (x-rays, MRI's, etc) as well as osteopathic manipulation as part of his care. This manipulation is a hands on treatment that is gentle, safe and effective at unwinding strains and releasing tissues to function more normally.
Being from Massachusetts, he went to the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine on the coast of Maine for osteopathic medical school, completed his medical internship in Worcester, MA and then his residency in the Bronx, NY. After teaching and practicing in New York City for a few years he made a sane decision and moved to Portland, OR in 2012 to continue in private practice as well as teaching second year Osteopathic medical students. He has been associated with PRA since 2015.
He loves spending time with his 5 year old daughter, being outdoors, studying birds and bird language, windsurfing and when he can find the time, going on silent meditation retreats.
