By taking advantage of the body’s natural buoyancy in water, your physical therapist will create a pool-based program aimed at helping you get back to the activities you love.
Biodex Isokinetic Strengthening
The Biodex uses computer-controlled resistance to provide our patients with Isokinetic exercise to develop and assess strength of the knee, shoulder and ankle. The Biodex has a continuous passive motion exercise mode that allows a Physical Therapist to move the patient’s injured limb in a safe passive and comfortable manner that does not exert forces or exceed specified limits ordered by your physician. Continuous passive motion permits the earliest postoperative intervention helping to decrease joint effusion (swelling) and increase range of motion to the effected joint. OrthoRehab is proud to be one of the only providers in the state of Montana offering the benefits of Biodex.
ASTYM® Soft Tissue Therapy
ASTYM® is a scientifically-based, non-invasive treatment designed to regenerate healthy soft tissues, such as muscles, ligaments and tendons. This therapeutic treatment targets soft tissue, scar tissue and degeneration that may develop due to overuse, trauma or surgery. ASTYM techniques are performed with great success by a highly trained Physical Therapist certified in this specialty.
Dry needling can be a highly effective technique physical therapists use to treat myofascial pain. The technique uses a “dry” needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle, known as trigger points.
Dry needling can be a viable treatment alternative for patients with chronic, intermittent pain and tenderness. Performed by highly trained Physical Therapists, OrthoRehab is proud to offer this therapy to our patients.

Physical Therapy for VERTIGO
Many people suffering with vertigo are unaware that physical therapy is one of the best ways to manage and treat vertigo.
Vertigo attacks leave a person feeling a sense of rocking, rotation, and spinning; and moving the head and body causing the symptoms to increase. Causes of vertigo sensations include vascular/circulatory impairment, infections in the inner ear, imbalances in the ear, issues with the cervical spine, problems with the central nervous system and most commonly, due to loose crystals in the ear.
Our physical therapist can also help you with any questions you may have and dispel any or misconceptions. Opting for physical therapy can be one of the best courses of action for patients suffering from vertigo, and it’s well worth discussing with your doctor and physical therapist.
Blood Flow Restriction
Blood flow restriction (BFR) training involves decreasing blood flow to working muscles in order to promote hypertrophy (muscle cell increase in size) and prevent disuse atrophy of muscles. This treatment is typically used during exercise, but there is also evidence that you can prevent muscle atrophy by using these compression devices alone. Exercising with BFR cuff allows one to increase strength with a low load on joint or limb with safety and precision. Each of our clinic locations have certified providers trained to administer this technique of strength gain, whether from generalized weakness, trauma, or recent surgery.
When faced with a diagnosis affecting the pelvic floor, many men and women are unaware that conservative effective treatment options exist outside of surgery or medication.
Pelvic floor physical therapy can reverse the pain associated with dysfunctions of the numerous muscles that attach to the pelvic and thigh bones. These muscles help control bowel and bladder function, stability, balance, healthy sexual activity, and organ mobility.
When these tissues are imbalanced, either weak and elongated or overactive and shortened, pain and problems can occur. Treatment usually involves neuromuscular re-education and manual release of associated restricted tissues either internally or externally, depending on the patient’s needs. OrthoRehab Physical Therapy educates their patients on the role that pelvic muscles, fascia and organ mobility may play in their symptoms.
Our physical therapist Kristen Stockham-Baller, DPT, CMTPT, PRPC, Pelvic floor specialist works intently to alleviate pelvic floor dysfunction and educates patients on the role that pelvic muscles, fascia and organ mobility may play in their symptoms.
