About Us


We are partnering with the Canyons Athletic Club at 472 Tammany Lane, Hamilton to provide patients with great convenience and access to the most  comprehensive athletic club in the Bitterroot Valley. While receiving Physical Therapy Services, our patients will have access to the entire health facility and pool while under direct care by their Therapist. At discharge, the Canyons have offered a very reasonable rate for patients who would like to continue with an exercise program on an independent basis. We believe this second location, our expert staff, and the Canyons’ facility make for a great environment to speed your recovery.
