For the 9th consecutive year, Alpine Physical Therapy will be the exclusive physical therapy sponsor of the Missoula Marathon. This prestigious sponsorship puts us face-to-face with runners of all skill levels, giving us opportunities to provide consultation to all participants and to present numerous training seminars for area marathoners.
Our team of 17 physical therapists provides both pre- and post-race massages for all Missoula Marathoners. In addition, we offer free injury consultations both before and after the race.
We offer a unique service for all runners called The Runner’s Clinic, which is overseen by expert physical therapist, Matthew Schweitzer, DPT, CSCS. Matt is our sport biomechanics expert associated with high-mileage running.
Participants entering The Runner’s Clinic undergo 2-D video analysis of their stride, along with a comprehensive body and movement examination. Integrating the 2-D video analysis with the clinical exam provides an exacting assessment for identifying running faults that can contribute to injury and impact performance. The results of the examination form the basis of specific corrective exercises that you’ll begin learning and doing on day one! For more information on The Runner’s Clinic, be sure to visit our website by clicking here.
Gaining knowledge about your injury and what you can do to resolve it puts you ahead of the pack. We invite you to peruse The Runner’s Clinic section of our website for information on various injuries common to runners. Gather additional information by clicking on the Patient Resources section of our website for news and information on these and other conditions runners face.
We have three locations in Missoula.
All participants of the Missoula Marathon are provided free injury consultations with one of our physical therapists. Call to schedule a free injury consultation or to schedule for The Runner’s Clinic.
On Saturday the 16th, Alpine Physical Therapy participated in the first annual Corporate Cup division of the Peak Triathlon, an event run by Missoula’s Fit to Fight non-profit. There were also numerous Alpine employees that took part in the single athlete men’s and women’s divisions!
The corporate team posted a third place win while fielding women in all three disciplines. Carley Mosher, an aide and ex-collegiate swimmer, completed the swim portion with a searing hot time. Fellow aide, Jessa Brooks, cruised on the bike and Jess Kehoe, the lone PT on the roster, crossed the finish line after the running the final 5k.
Jess had so much fun during her run that she ran right through the finish line and continued down the hill. Jess said she enjoys running hills and, “the course was super fun and for a great cause, we all went out at a fast pace and had a great time!”
The other participants who rocked it were Brace Hayden (19th in men, 24th over all), Sam Schmidt (43th in women, 127th over all), Nikki Parnell (19th in women, 66th over all), Katie Schermele (40th in women, 122th over all).
“The Peak Triathlon was a well-organized and positive racing experience! There were spacious pool lanes, a beautiful, rolling bike course overlooking the Missoula Valley, a downhill run finish, and encouraging volunteers! It was impossible not to have a blast!” – Nikki Parnell
Emily Jones, our wicked awesome athletic trainer, provided participants with injury consults and had a station with foam rolls and mats for athletes to stretch and prepare for the race.
That wasn’t all, we had a great turn out of volunteers who donated their time instead of their energy!
Thanks to all who participated! All proceeds went to Fit to Fight to continue “empowering cancer survivors to improve their quality of life through a program of fitness and health.”
