Know that choosing a physical therapist is first and foremost your choice. So take some time to kick a few tires before simply “going to PT.”
All legally practicing physical therapists in Montana are licensed. That’s great. And there are a lot of quality PTs out there.
Some, however, have gone the extra mile to specialize in areas that may dramatically improve your situation.
At Alpine Physical Therapy, we have specialists in manual therapy, women’s health, spine care, jaw and face pain,vestibular and balance disorders, along with various sports experts in climbing, court sports, soccer, cycling, and running.
Of our 15 physical therapists at Alpine, 11 have doctorates, 4 are board certified through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialities, and we hold 11 advanced and prestigious national certifications.
More people have kicked the tires of Alpine’s physical therapists and resoundingly say they are glad they did.

New information is constantly being shared among our professional staff during our monthly inservices at Alpine Physical Therapy.
Special thanks to student intern, Josie Sweeney, for her dynamite presentation this month of Jonathan Hoffman’s Foundation Training.
Super fun. Super effective. These progressions are designed in a way that even beginners can grasp key positions and movements that make up a meaningful progression of Foundation Training. You can do these exercises at home, at the gym, or while traveling.
Josie created and presented handouts based on the work of Jonathan Hoffman, allowing our PTs in all our locations to be able to integrate them as a cool home program for select patients at Alpine.

Missoula has always had an active community. Active is the key word! Exercise can help fight depression, regain strength, and combat fatigue. Exercise is the best medicine. There is no population that understands this more than cancer patients and survivors.
FIT TO FIGHT is here to help
Medical studies prove that exercise helps minimize the detrimental side-effects of cancer treatment, aiding in the return to a better quality of life. This unique program is based on education, health, and fitness to empower those fighting cancer to understand how to become stronger and maintain strength. FIT TO FIGHT helps cancer survivors re-establish trust in their bodies and return to daily life as productive members of their community.
The FIT TO FIGHT program runs three 8-week sessions per year, twice weekly. The format is a small organized group exercise session, with individual tailoring. Each session consists of stretching, breathing & relaxation, resistive strengthening, and endurance training. Each class of the session was developed by a licensed physical therapist and is led by an exercise physiologist.
Who can participate in the program?
FTF is open to cancer patients and survivors of any age, gender, cancer diagnosis, and stage in the treatment process. A medical release is required from their doctor.
How much does it cost?
The program is free of cost to all participants. Donations go directly to the FIT TO FIGHT program and its participants.
Winter Session Beginning Feb. 24th, 2015
Spring Session Beginning April, 2015

People who take steps to learn about their aches and pains tend to improve, faster. Knowledge is power, a huge first step toward healing an orthopedic ailment.
Shoulder pain? It doesn’t always spell a torn tendon and imminent surgery. In fact, most people we see in physical therapy for shoulder pain do quite well with the care of their doctor together with physical therapy treatment.
Learn all you can.
