Physical Therapy

Physical Therapists (PTs) are licensed health care professionals who utilize hands-on techniques to restore safe and normal functional movement patterns. Whether you’ve had surgery or would like to prevent surgery, Physical therapy is often used to reduce pain and restore mobility so a patient can return to all daily activities without limitations. In many cases, physical therapy can decrease the use of pain medication without expensive surgery.

Don’t hesitate to contact an expert physical therapist to find out what’s wrong and causing your pain or your condition. Contact us: 208-939-0533

ASTYM

Idaho Spine & Sports Physical Therapy has Physical Therapists certified in ASTYM.  

ASTYM (Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization) is a therapy treatment that regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and eliminates or reduces unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. ASTYM treatment is highly effective and even works when other approaches routinely fail. One of the main reasons ASTYM is so much more effective than other treatments is that ASTYM was scientifically developed to resolve the underlying cause of soft tissue problems, rather than just trying to temporarily relieve symptoms. It is one of the most researched and effective therapy treatments ever used. ASTYM is unmatched in its ability to resolve tendinopathies, scar tissue problems, and other soft tissue dysfunctions. Doctors regularly prescribe ASTYM specifically for their patients, and elite athletes and knowledgeable patients seek out ASTYM for superior results. When your health and ability to stay active is at stake, only the best will do.

Generally, chronic soft tissue problems are due to scarring or degeneration. Soft tissues include muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Both scarring and degeneration are common and can result in pain and limitations in movement.

Stem Cell/PRP Rehabilitation

Idaho Spine and Sports Physical Therapy works closely with physicians who provide Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell injections.  Our Physical Therapists are highly specialized with therapy care after injections have been received in the shoulder, knee, or other areas.

If you are unsure if PRP injections are the right option for you, schedule a non-committal consultation to determine if it’s a viable option.

Physical Therapy plays an important role in your recovery and healing process after receiving injections.  

Currently, insurances cover physical therapy, but they do not cover PRP or Stem Cell Injections.  Idaho Spine and Sports Physical Therapy makes the appropriate referral to MD’s who perform Stem Cell and PRP Therapy.

Auto Accidents

Been in a motor vehicle accident?  We can bill your auto insurance company to help you recover from your injury.  We accept first auto insurance med pay and can assist you if you do not have health insurance or medpay with a third party payer to help you get the care you need without waiting for a settlement from the third party.  Sound confusing?  Don’t worry, our friendly billing department is here to assist you with details along the way. 

Most people don’t feel neck stiffness immediately after the car accident, but will start to feel stiffness and not be able to turn their neck as far a couple of days after the accident.  We recommend you consult with a physician or physical therapist to help with muscle spasms that are common after a motor vehicle accident.

Massage Therapy, Chiropractic Care and Physical Therapy work great together in conjunction.  Physical Therapist provide massage and spinal manipulation in your treatment if it’s right for you.

You may also contact us if you have any questions.  Our friendly staff is happy to assist you.

Dry Needling

Idaho Spine and Sports Physical Therapy offers Functional Dry Needling as a treatment option. A licensed physical therapist uses microfilament needles to relax chronic or acute muscle pain and to retrain abnormally functioning muscles.

Benefits include:

  • Decreased pain
  • Decreased muscle tightness
  • Increased range of motion
  • No use of chemicals
  • No harsh side effects

Dry needling uses a thin, sterile filament needle inserted into a muscle to stimulate a recovery response and to restore normal “firing” of poorly functioning muscles.

Ask your therapist if Dry Needling is an appropriate treatment option for you.

“When I came in, my left knee was painful and I was having a hard time even walking around. After PT I’m back to running and back at the gym. I have learned a lot about proper movement techniques. The people here are great to work with. I would highly recommend Spine & Sports Physical Therapy.”

– Kevin Dietrich

“Before I came to physical therapy I was in a large amount of pain. Coming to therapy has given my knees and ankles more strength and has allowed me to play soccer once again. I would recommend people to come here because of the friendly atmosphere and the level of professionalism.”

– Gavin Parsons

“My condition before coming to this physical therapy place was all around weak knee. PT has helped me to improve my quad/knee strength and allowed me to return to competitive sports. I would recommend Idaho Spine and Sports Physical Therapy to others because it has a great and positive atmosphere. The staff and physical therapists are all super funny and chill.”

-Maria Ware

“I had a total knee replacement. Needless to say, I was in a lot of pain. The crew here helped me through the pain with some great exercises and stretches both here and at home. My therapists were Jeff, Kevin, and Megan. Their professionalism, knowledge, kindness, and friendship made my time here go too fast. I will miss them a lot. I would recommend ISSPT to anyone who is in the need of physical therapy, because the crew will get you feeling better in no time. And you will laugh through the pain. Thank you everyone for treating me like I was someone special.”

-Suzanne Cydell

“I came in March after my 1st total knee replacement. The exercise program and physical therapy made my recovery really speedy. In September, I had the 2nd total knee replacement. I knew what to expect and again, the exercise and therapy made for an even speedier recovery. They pushed me hard, but never beyond what I could tolerate. Everyone here is so friendly, and very supportive. I would never go anywhere else for any physical therapy. Thank you Alex and Todd! The massage at the end is a real bonus!”

-Dary Bishop

“I came to physical therapy to help improve my range of motion in my right knee and find out how to continue to keep my ROM from getting worse as I get older. All of the staff here have been great- helpful, professional, and have great attitudes! My pain has decreased since coming here and I’ve learned how to stretch out my knee and do many exercises to help strengthen my knee, quads, and hips. I feel more equipped to deal with arthritis in my knee as I age and keep it from getting worse”

-Jean Pollock

“Left knee weakness after a fall with some RA flare occurred while changing my RA medicine. Constant pain and swelling in my left knee! Referred to PT per Dr. Lagwinski. At the start of PT unable to put leg straight and was weak. Now after PT and the pain and swelling is down and able to straighten the knee. My knee is stronger. It has been a real benefit for me to have had physical therapy. I will definitely recommend Idaho Spine and Sports Physical Therapy for everyone!”

-Vivian Hayes

“I could barely walk when I came in to Idaho Spine and Sports Physical Therapy. I had just had a total knee replacement and I had a lot of pain. Megan (and others) not only gave me fantastic work outs, but they also helped keep me going. Megan is a great cheerleader and made me feel very good about my progress. It’s hard to believe that I could change so much in just 6 weeks. I hardly have any pain now and I can do all kinds of things that I wasn’t able to do before. I thank Megan and all the people at ISSPT for giving me a fantastic experience!’

-Cheri Graffuis

“Before I started here my knee would often be in shocking pain while I did normal around the house stuff. PT has made my knee stronger and I can now do all my normal day to day activities including active sports! I would recommend ISSPT because I went from pain in my knee to nearly none at all!”
