    I have been to several physical therapists. Was not sure what to expect. On the day of my first eval I met with Mitch. He was interested in what I had done and what my expectations were. I told I did not want to just be put through the process. I wanted to be challenged. That he did. My program/therapy was exactly what I wanted. My progress was amazing. I can not say enough about how pleased I am. Could not ask for better. I have and will continue to recommend Physical Therapy Specialists of Idaho. Everyone here is amazing, caring and helpful.

    I have been suffering from back pain for years, had several rounds of injections and fitted for a back brace. At my last doctors appointment he discussed surgery and wanted to schedule for a very serious surgery. At the time my Mother was going to physical therapy at PTSI and I couldn't believe the progress she was making. I was scared to have the surgery so my AMAZING Mom put me in the car and brought me to Physical Therapy Specialists of Idaho. I met with Scott and he explained how he could help. My first appointment I was very cautious and everyone was making sure I wasn't pushing myself too hard. But after that appointment I could tell a difference!!! Muscles that I was afraid to use started to get stronger and my back pain decreased. I can not tell you how much better I feel and how grateful I am for the entire staff at PTSI. I was sad to graduate, but know if I need anything they will welcome me back with open arms. Once you walk through their doors you are a member of their family and they truly care about you and your success. I can not thank them enough for giving me my life back. I didn't realize how much I had stopped doing because of the constant pain I was in. I would give them 100 stars for their dedication, knowledge and the results I have. Thank you again ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

    The clinic was clean and well organized. The staff was always friendly and knowledgeable. I will strongly recommend this clinic to family and friends. I have been to several clinics in Pocatello, and this one is head and shoulders above the rest!

    If you are searching for a physical therapy provider, search no more. These guys are great! They kept therapy fun and time would fly by. The atmosphere is laid back yet very professional and the different treatments are creative and effective. The therapists have different certifications in specialized areas. I was referred to my therapist based on the specific training he has in working with the spine. I was referred to him by one of the sop sports doctors in Pocatello! I was a runner for 25 years, so I have tried different PT places over the years of falling apart and this is the one place that actually made a difference!

    Let me begin by saying that my experience with PTSI was outstanding from when I first entered the clinic to when I finally left. Even the T-shirt was cool! Although I spent most of my time with Corey and Steen everyone else was friendly and there for me when I needed it, including Holly and her sweet smile! Corey and Steen were both professional and encouraging and knew how to push me just a bit further each time I was there and they did it with care and humor. I have come a long way since physical therapy, mostly because of PTSI. Dr. Altenburg put me at the tip of the bell curve for how quickly I am recovering. I would definitely recommend PTSI to anyone needing physical therapy. I am regaining strength and flexibility and my range of motion is slowly getting better and better. I walk, workout, and ride my bike. I will be riding in Spinderella in a couple of weeks. I expect to ride at least 50 miles and am excited about it, considering that it has only been 4 months since surgery. PTSI certainly met my needs and exceeded my expectations! I can’t thank you enough for what you did for me!

    This is my second time here at PTSI and I love this place! Everyone here is so friendly! I really like working with Mike! When I wasn’t doing some of the exercises correctly, he never made me feel dumb unlike other places I have been to. Corey was also very nice to work with. He would explain everything so that I understood. There was never a person that I didn’t like to work with. I would recommend this place to friends and family. I have been coming here for so long that PTSI has become like my family. I am so sad to be leaving. Thank you to everyone! PTSI has played a huge part in my recovery.

    I have really been satisfied with this clinic. All of the therapists have gone above and beyond the call of duty to help me achieve success with my knee. I received personal treatment from Corey, who was great in seeing that my treatments were completed properly and to his satisfaction. There were times when other therapists were involved with my treatment and Corey always had them report that everything was done. The clinic is very friendly and professional. I never once felt intimidated or was made to fell I was not important. I have had treatments at other physical therapy places and recommend it as the number one place for treatment.

    PTSI has an amazing positive, encouraging atmosphere! The staff are encouraging and supportive and patiently worked to build my strength and confidence. They helped me work through both physical and mental blocks with their careful coaching and support. I feel that I am empowered to do things I could not do before. Their understanding of body mechanics, explanations of what was needed and help doing exercises with the correct form is absolutely wonderful. Corey, Tyler, Jacci and Holly all worked with me and made me feel so welcomed and supported and encouraged. The fun, friendly team atmosphere is great and made it fun. Their support and encouragement helped me immensely! Thank you so much!

    All my life I have been associated with customer service and this is the best place I’ve experienced in my 40 years! I believe the healing process is enhanced by the attitude of every person in this place. The smiles and positive attitude are wonderful. All the statements on the wall are practiced here. I would recommend this place even if you don’t need treatment. To Mike: You’re my Hero!m

    I never thought I would recover from my collision. I was ready to live with severe pain in my back and hips. After going to another physical therapist and not being satisfied, I came upon PTSI. Not a day went by that I regretted the decision to be treated by them. I enjoyed coming in and being treated by the staff. Amazing is not enough to describe the treatment and knowledge they have provided me. Because of PTSI, I am now confident to move on with my life in the most positive and close to normal way I can. Thank you, PTSI!

    The journey with the Techs here was a journey worth taking. They meet your every need with knowledge and support. They work as a team with an upbeat way of helping you get to the point of recovery. This is a top-notch heath care facility with a passion for people. Thanks so much for the help and the freedom to live life to the fullest again.

    I came to PTSI after being in a car accident. Due to the injuries I received, I had nerve damage which affected the use of my leg. Since beginning services with Scott, I have been able to improve my pain and nerve issues with simple exercises and stretches taught during my therapy sessions instead of taking more medications or more invasive treatments such as surgery. All staff is highly professional and have amazing personalities. Front office staff, the techs, assistants, and the therapists are all very pleasant to work with. I highly recommend receiving services through PTSI.
