Read up on common cycling injuries and look into a professional bike fit at Alpine Physical Therapy. Don’t miss out on some of the best rides of the year that late summer and fall will provide!
People are getting results with the help of Alpine’s Jamie Terry, DPT, SCS. Jamie is a Sports Certified Specialist, and the first-ever graduate of the University of Montana’s Post-Professional Sports Medicine Residency Program (2011).
The feedback we’ve gotten from recipients of this new service at Alpine has been telltale. Even modest adjustments have had a great impact in reducing injuries among cyclists, not to mention major improvements in performance.

Listen, and you’ll hear the buzz about Missoula’s hottest new biking team, Montana Alpha. They represent Montana’s first all-women’s mountain bike team. This amazing group of athletes was founded by Alpine Physical Therapy’s very own PT,
The team’s mission is to encourage women to race and ride mountain bikes through special skills sessions and rides and junior development. They’ve already had a presence at almost every Montana Off-Road Series race, and they’ve traveled to two out-of-state races. You won’t be able to miss their brightly colored, animal print uniforms with the Alpine logo proudly printed on them.
Alpine didn’t want to miss the opportunity to support women who want to gain confidence, fitness, and personal challenge through mountain biking.
To learn what Montana Alpha is really all about, check out their website by clicking here. Also, come by Marshall Mountain any Wednesday night starting tonight and through July to see them race!
Go Team. We support you 110%!
To many people, bikes are the ticket to unlimited fun, freedom, and exceptional fitness. However, spending time on the bike can also give you tight shoulders, numb hands, sore knees, and terrible back pain. That is, until you get a pro bike fit from Alpine Physical Therapy’s sports and bike fit specialist
During your comprehensive, hour-long bike fit, Jamie will address the position, distance and angles of the three points of contact a rider has with the bike (on the pedals, saddle, and handle bars). Proper length between handle bars and saddle can help to alleviate back pain. Saddle height and foot position are important to unload the knees. And the angle of the handle bars will help combat hand numbness and shoulder pain.
But, that’s not all. Jamie will also address the need for shoe orthotics, cleat adjustments, different saddle widths, and stem angles. A full bike fit will not only make your bike more comfortable, but it will significantly increase your efficiency and power output, meaning more miles and speed for the same amount of effort!
So whether you ride mountain or road, recreationally or competitively, a professional bike fit can dramatically improve your riding experience. Call Alpine Physical Therapy to schedule with Jamie today by calling 251-2323.

According to Ryan Mizner, PT, PhD, Assistant Professor at the University of Montana, the sports clinical residency program in the School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science at the University of Montana has just been credentialed by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).
The UM’s program becomes one of only 20 APTA-credentialed sports clinical residency programs in the United States. The accreditation permits the graduates who complete the yearlong and full-time program to apply for the Board Specialization exam for sports clinical specialty.
A clinical residency program is designed to substantially advance a resident’s expertise in examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, intervention, and management of patients in a defined area of clinical practice (specialty). Residency programs must be based on the latest description of specialty practice to be credentialed by APTA.
Achieving credentialed status is a testament to the quality and sustainability of the training provided by the UM’s Sport residency program to licensed physical therapists.
Congratulations to the U of M’s School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science for this tremendous accomplishment and accolade!
Notably, Alpine Physical Therapy is proud to have on staff the first (and currently the only) graduate of U of M’s prestigious sports clinical residency program, Jamie Terry, DPT.
Commenting on the recent credentialing, Alpine’s owner, Brent Dodge, states: “Undergoing a residency program of this magnitude prepares physical therapists to excel in their clinical practice. From the moment Jamie joined our team of physical therapists at Alpine, I’ve seen firsthand how this program has given Jamie a solid foundation for clinical decision making, which is directly related to her ability to help our patients successfully achieve their rehabilitative goals.”
Jamie is currently applying for the Board Certification examination and will sit for this intense exam next month.
