Putting your life on hold because of pain and injury is something Jon Link wishes no one had to do.

That’s why he went into physical therapy and why he opened an outpatient clinic, Boise River Physical Therapy, two months ago.

Link and his wife recently moved to Meridian from “the frozen tundra” of northern Illinois. Link was, and remains, a leader and co-owner of the Orthopedic and Sports Therapy Institute, an independent physical therapy group in Illinois. The Star clinic is the group’s “very, very Northwest branch,” Link says.

The clinic specializes in orthopedic, sports and industrial rehabilitation.

Link has worked as a physical therapist in orthopedics for the past 15 years and is certified in a special technique used to treat tendonitis-type conditions, he says.

The only challenge he has run into as a new-business owner is the always-slow process of putting down roots as a new health care provider.

“Being the new kid on the block, it takes some time to build a business and clientele, but I am very thankful for the initial response from the city and community of Star,” he says.
