Thanks to the American College of Sports Medicine for their about-face on what’s in store for fitness in 2014. Enter high intensity interval training, or HIIT. For a growing number of fitness enthusiasts, this news isn’t surprising. Why?
Because the folks who have been doing HIIT regularly know the benefits. They see the change in body composition when they look in the mirror. Their belly’s are trim. Their muscles are defined. And they don’t huff and puff when taking the stairs up, the trash out, or the hike higher.
The accompanying article has some great information on HIIT, including the benefits. If you’ve been longing for a fast, effective, and efficient way to get maximal results, this one’s worth the read. Check it out.
Next year, your workout is going to get a lot more intense. Once the domain of fitness fanatics, high-intensity interval training is poised to hit the mainstream in 2014, according to a new survey from the American College of Sports Medicine.

Alpine Physical Therapy congratulates Tara Mund, DPT, for attaining national certification in her specialty area, women’s health physical therapy. She was notified this week by Darla Cathcart, PT, DPT, WCS, CLT the Director of Education for the Section on Women’s Health of the American Physical Therapy Association.
Darla commended Tara by writing: “Your successful attainment of the Certificate of Achievement – pelvic floor (CAPP –Pelvic) . . . signifies your dedication to women’s health physical therapy and to patients and clients that you serve.”
Having attained this advanced certification, Tara is the sole physical therapist in Missoula who performs examinations and treatments at this advanced level, enabling her to skillfully address pelvic diagnoses in women (and men) of all ages. Having a certified women’s health specialist in physical therapy working at Alpine Physical Therapy strongly expands our existing outreach in the area of women’s health physical therapy.
Tara is the Director of the Her Health program at Alpine Physical Therapy (www.HerHealthMT.com). Whereas she’s been able to grow this program over the past four years, her attainment of this certification yields numerous benefits. Certification places Tara at the top of her field in our community, enabling her to communicate comfortably and with authority to area doctors and other referral sources. Additionally, her patients are directly benefiting from Tara’s advanced training as a specialist.

A picture tells a thousand words. The pumpkin pictured here was one of 200 we grew in our pumpkin garden this year. My daughter, Yani, added the drawing of the Alpine Physical Therapy logo . . . perfect in every detail!
Pump, pump, pumpkin it up, Alpine!

When we opened our brand new Alpine Physical Therapy clinic in downtown Missoula back in February of this year, we knew there would be a lot of excitement and new patients. To support this anticipated growth, we allocated two physical therapists for the new venture, Samantha Schmidt, PT, and Jamie Terry, DPT.
It wasn’t long before the opportunity presented itself for us to add another seasoned physical therapist to our downtown professional staff.
Our choice was Matthew Schweitzer, DPT. Matthew returned to Missoula after completing an advanced manual therapy certification and his board certification in orthopedic PT. His interests are in utilizing manual therapy and integrating patients in to functional movement. Matthew recently completed training with Kinetacore in Colorado to provide functional dry needling.
This month, we are also welcoming back from maternity leave Jessica Kehoe, DPT to our south location on Blue Mountain Road. Jess has practiced PT in Missoula since she graduated from the U of M with her Doctorate in 2007. She’s been with Alpine for over a year and sees a variety of folks, including those with back pain, sports injuries, and soccer injuries.
We are also thrilled to announce that on December 9, 2013, a well known physical therapist to the Missoula area, Dennis McCrea, PT will join our professional staff. Dennis will carry a full time schedule at our south clinic. He is known for his skill, care, and compassion. He’s an expert manual therapist and is fully certified in functional dry needling.
Finally, we are scheduling a start date of December 18th for a long time Alpine star, Leah Versteegen, DPT. She has been on a sabbatical in Tromso, Norway, which has been the home base for her family since February 2013 when her husband entered a prestigious post-doctoral fellowship with the Norwegian Polar Institute as a geophysicist conducting research in Antarctica. Leah has been working in Northern Norway this past year providing physical therapy services and Pilates instruction at Studio Pilates Trening and Fysioterapy. She is excited to return home to Alpine once again providing her services to the Missoula community.
These additions will enable us to uphold our passion to provide excellent physical therapy.
Brent Dodge is the founding owner of Alpine Physical Therapy and is a board certified orthopedic specialist. He holds additional certifications in Functional Dry Needling, Manual Physical Therapy, and Strength and Conditioning.
