We’ve asked our staff for the best reasons to ROCK PT REHAB AT ALPINE PT!
Tired of your family, friends and teammates talking behind your back and saying how "Caddywampus" you are or that you are a bit "Cockeyed". Come in to Alpine PT for pain relief to change their perception of you to "Oh My! You look and move much better".
If your back feels "Out of Whack" Alpine PT is the place to go to restore normal movement and alignment and decrease pain. Being "Out of Whack" is not something you have to live with when a Alpine Physical therapist can help you get rid of it.
If you have a "Hitch in your Giddyup" due to hip, knee or ankle problems see an Alpine Physical Therapist for manual therapy to decrease muscle tension and pain, receive expert gait training and instruction in the appropriate stretches and strengthening ex's and that "Hitch" will be a thing of the past.
When our staff is “Caddywampus” or has a “Hitch in our Giddyup”, as Dennis says, we Rock Physical Therapy at the best place in Missoula!
3 Reasons I Slowly Roll My Rehab At Alpine by Brace
As a PT that has recently turned 40 and has been working in the field for 15+ years now, 5+ of which have been with Alpine PT, I'm unfortunately gaining in the "experiential learner" portion of my profession. I feel fortunate to get to 'walk-the-walk' on a daily basis as it said, and get into the gym to improve my strength, keep up my cardiovascular fitness and work on my dynamic balance. The pictures below capture a few recent summery moments that keep me striving to build up what my body naturally is trying to break down.
- Mandatory Mountain Top Jump on Stuart Peak - A hike'a'bike up one of the tallest peaks in the Rattlesnake Wilderness required a lot of water and pressing through tired and whiney legs. Luckily, the way down was much more refreshing and fun.
- Huckleberry Hunting or Finding 'Ol Huckletooth - Finding and foraging on nature's little purple pearly goo-shots is a favorite annual hike past time. This does require a lot of lunging, deep squatting and concentrated dexterity.
- Click Your Heels for Marriage - Over the 4th of July I married my life companion in Glacier. This was a lifetime high point that took a lot the full triathlon of swimming in the crazy river of marriage planning, biking around to keep my legs and head spinning at the same pace and running the gauntlet of marital magic.

Dodger Rocks the Beartooth Mountains, Thanks to Rehab at Alpine
Antara rocked my shoulder rehab at Alpine! Although my shoulder ROM and strength gradually improved over the last 6 months, my pain didn't. I figured shoulder pain was now the norm for me.
I hit a new shoulder high when I secured my hiking boots and strapped on my "plus size" backpack this summer.
Base camp, at the furthest possible hiking distance from any known road in to the Beartooth Mountains, a mere 19.5 miles. Basically, the whole experience was like some kind of phase IV of my rehab at Alpine. Here I am at the pinnacle of Pride Rock singing at the top of my lungs the Lion King's "Circle of Life."
In the end, my three buddies and I packed and hiked a total of 50 miles, traversed vertically over 8,900 feet (spending much time just under 10,000 feet), and caught 4 fish each. Kidding. We actually tallied over 400 fish that we caught and released, though we kept a few medium-sized fish to cook at camp.
In summary, here are a few of my top 10 reasons for Rockin' Your Rehab at Alpine:
- Cast flies and lures in high mountain lakes for 6 plus hours a day without shoulder pain.
- Carry a 35 plus pound backpack with absolutely no shoulder pain at all.
- Bushwhack up (and then down) a 1.5 mile mountain face (see Lion King photo above) to be able to access a virgin lake and hook a pure strain golden trout that was nearly as big as the state record (see pic below). (And please disregard the fact that I mistook this fish for a cutthroat!)
- Carry that same heavy backpack from base camp back to the rig . . . a total distance of 19.5 miles in exactly 9 hours.
Leah Rocks Rehab at All 3 Alpine Locations
As a physical therapist myself going to see someone else for my PT needs this past year has been enlightening. My own patients are surprised that as a PT I can still get hurt - but if becoming a PT means that you are exempt from injury I think there would be a lot more PTs out there! As a patient, I have learned many new treatment ideas to incorporate into my own practice and feel that I have a much better understanding of what it takes from the patient's side. I am truly a better PT because of my experience learning as a patient from some of the best in the West - Alpine PTs! I have been a patient at all 3 Alpine locations in the past 12 months, with back pain and after knee surgery and have to add that the attitudes and atmosphere created by the PTs and support staff definitely make a not so fun process truly enjoyable!
