We’d like to announce the Oncology Rehab Program at Alpine Physical Therapy. Our team, which includes Josie Sweeney, DPT, Antara Quinones DPT, CLT-LANA, and Jessica Kehoe DPT, want to bring to everyone’s attention that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. We will surely all see lots of pink stuff this month in sports and in the news honoring this month, but we really want to remind everyone that the reason for all this media is to encourage early detection.
Statistics show that nearly 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Early detection is the BEST way to beat this disease, and both the 5 year and long term survival rates drastically improve with early detection.
We encourage all women to talk about early detection with their friends and family. If you are a woman aged 40-49 talk to your doctor about when and how often to begin getting mammograms. If you have had a close family member with breast or ovarian cancer you are at a slightly greater risk, so no matter your age, be sure to talk to your doctor about your options for early detection. Join us in vowing to start, or get back to, your early detection plan.
We’d like to share some great resources to help you.
The American Cancer Society (early detection).
The National Breast Cancer Foundation (early detection).
The National Cancer Institute (risk calculator).
The Oncology Rehab Team at Alpine Physical Therapy is now providing Missoula and surrounding communities with the following services:

Two new stars have arisen at Alpine Physical Therapy. In just the past few months, we’ve added two new physical therapists to our team of (now) 13 physical therapists.
