About High Country Physical Therapy

"We Specialize In Keeping Mountain Athletes Active Without The Lifelong Effects Of Surgery And Painkillers. Your Body Has The Ability To Heal Itself. We Teach You How."

 

At High Country Physical Therapy we love to help mountain athletes, get back to living the life they deserve and getting that high country fix they crave. Which means a life free from painkillers, where you don’t have to worry about bothering the doctor, and can do and enjoy all of the things you love, without the fear of pain holding you back.

When pain strikes in your knee, lower-back, neck or shoulders, or if you experience an injury - we know it’s very tempting to leave it and hope it’ll simply “go away on it’s own” with time and rest… That you’ll wake up someday and like “magic”, it’ll be as if it never happened in the first place - but that’s usually not the case, and often the pain ends up worse than it was when it first started.

We also know it’s very easy to reach into the back of the cupboard for the painkillers, and take them whenever pain strikes so it eases off fast - but all those painkillers are not good for your health long-term, and do nothing but mask the pain instead.

Or, maybe you’re left feeling confused, even skeptical because you’ve sought advice from other Healthcare professionals, or a PT in the past, and nothing they seemed to say or do helped.

Can you relate?

If that sounds like you, you’re not alone. At our shop we hear this all the time… In fact people who come to see us have often:

  • Thought the pain would go away on it’s own - but it didn’t

  • Paid several visits to the Doctor, only to be told to “rest” and “take some painkillers” - then weeks later go back to see the Doctor again, only to be prescribed MORE rest, and an even stronger dose of painkillers

  • Been put on a month long waiting list after being referred to see a “Specialist”, then when after waiting so long to be seen - were given a sheet of exercises, which did nothing to ease the pain quick, if at all

  • Tried a few YouTube exercises, but those exercises either didn’t do a thing or aggravated the pain making it 10 times worse

  • Thought it would be a good idea to rest because the pain was so bad, but all that did was make the area even more stiff and tight

  • Been told by a family member or friend that “everybody gets aches and pains when they’re active” - making it easy to accept it’s “just a part of life”

Any of those sound familiar?

If any of these have happened to you - we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk to our PT to find out what can be done to help you. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already, like many people we see, is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work - you are closer to finding the thing that does!

Click the link below to book a call with us if you would like to get some solid advice given to you over the phone. The phone call is complementary and there is no obligation to book any appointments with us after the call is over. Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next for the best.

We Love To Help People:

  • Keep active - so you can hang with your riding partner all day, reach that next summit, work toward your next PR, or have the endurance to fill that once-in a-lifetime tag

  • Stay free from painkillers - so you’re not always reaching in the cupboard for painkillers to ease the pain whenever it strikes - PLUS they’re no good for your long-term health anyway, and don’t actually do anything to fix the problem, just mask it

  • Avoid dangerous surgery - we’ll help you get to the root-cause of what’s going on quick - often inside 20 minutes, so you don’t have to get to the point of having to face surgery to fix it

  • Find out what’s wrong - we’ll help give you peace of mind and ensure that your problem is “corrected” and “healed” properly - and we will provide you with the perfect set of exercises that will speed up your recovery

  • Get more enjoyment out of life - so you can have quality time with family and friends enjoying places and wild things, that aches and pains can steal from you

Basically, we love to help people get back to living life free from the curse of pain...
