Alpine Physical Therapy was started with the intention of helping as many people with back and neck pain as possible. That was May of 2006. Since then, we’ve treated more than 2,500 Missoulians with back and neck pain.
There are several reason we’ve been able to work with so many people in such a short time. First, back and neck pain are common. Scientific studies indicate that 80% of people in industrialized nations will suffer significant back pain, the kind that keeps you from work or play, at some point in their lives. Fully 90%t of these folks will have recurrent episodes of pain.
Second, because Alpine’s physical therapists are on the front edge of spine treatment, we’ve built a reputation for helping people, including those who haven’t gotten results elsewhere. Our team of 11 therapists includes several highly certified professionals. In fact, Angela Listug-Vap, our Clinic Director at Alpine North, is Montana’s only Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists. Simply put, she’s the state’s expert physical therapist when it comes to helping people with back and neck pain. In addition to Angela’s certification as a manual physical therapist, Alpine’s owner, Brent Dodge, is certified as a manual physical therapist through the prestigious North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy.
We also have among our staff two Board Certified Orthopedic Physical Therapists, Brent Dodge, and Brace Hayden. To receive this certification, Brent and Brace underwent a rigorous examination given by the National Board of Physical Therapists.
With a large professional staff, exceptional certifications, and an intense desire to help people, we’ve been able to help a lot of our fellow Missoulians. In fact, 2,500 is a number that can’t be matched by other free standing outpatient clinics in our city. We’re proud of our committment to provide Expert, Effective, and Caring help to people who seek help for neck and back pain.
