The CoreAlign In Action
Success Story: Alpine Physical Therapy, Missoula, MT
Since its introduction nearly three years ago, the CoreAlign has been making a serious splash in the rehabilitation field. Nowhere is that more evident than at Alpine Physical Therapy in Missoula, MT.
Samantha Schmidt, PT, a long-time Pilates-based rehab practitioner at Alpine PT, first tried the CoreAlign at Balanced Body’s Pilates on Tour Rehab Summit in April 2009. “As soon as I got on it I immediately felt in my own body the potential this could have on my patient’s body. I knew it could be a great tool to teach proper movement to those stuck in compensatory, dysfunctional patterns.”
As soon as she got back to Missoula she met with Brent Dodge, PT the owner of Alpine. They immediately began making plans for Sam to start working toward Master Instructor certification. After that was accomplished they then turned their sights on the rest of the Alpine PT staff. Dodge also began his CoreAlign training. “We both knew this was going to change the landscape of our business,” said Dodge. “It’s such a phenomenally effective tool for functional movement, gait training, strength training and balance.”
