Our Approach


Why Physical Therapy Specialists of Idaho?

Locally owned - PTSI was formally owned by RehabAuthority. Corey Rasmussen, a former partner with RehabAuthority purchased the Pocatello clinic with a desire to better serve the community without corporate involvement. Corey has lived in Pocatello since 1997, went to ISU for all his education and continues to raise his family here. Community involvement is important to Corey, as he is involved in many service organizations within the community and loves the people who reside here.

Friendly, personal staff - The single most important trait when hiring staff is a fun, friendly personality. We look for individuals who genuinely care about helping people. This has allowed the formation of an amazing team. You will experience a difference with our personal, hometown, individual care.

Highest level of education – All our therapists have graduated with their Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT). This is the highest level of education offered in our profession. Research has indicated that physical therapy students in DPT programs score higher in orthopedic examinations than Masters of Physical Therapy programs.

Prestigious certifications – At PTSI, we have chosen to specialize in orthopedic and spine related conditions. With a general education, it is difficult to be great at treating everything. Therefore, we have chosen a specialty area to focus our training to be the best in orthopedic care. All our therapists have either achieved or are working toward prestigious certifications that allow them to reach better outcomes than a general practice. Visit our webpage to see more about these specialty areas.

Modern technology – In today’s medicine, new technology is developed every day to allow clinicians to be more efficient and safe in their treatments. PTSI has invested in the most up-to-date equipment that allows for optimal recovery.

Conveniently located – Found at the heart of Pocatello, we are enjoying our ability to better serve Pocatello and Chubbuck. Our clinic is located at 675 Yellowstone Ave, Suite 1. Our many neighbors include Barrie’s Ski and Sports, Fred Meyer, Wingers, and Dollar Tree.

10 minute no charge consultation – Many times we are experiencing pain but we just don’t know who to go to get the best treatment. At PTSI, we offer a 10 minute no charge consultation to assess your needs. Make an appointment with us and tell us your symptoms and how they developed. We can then tell you with certainty if we can help you or we can steer you in a direction to someone who can.

Strong relationships with local physicians – Corey and his team of therapists have developed strong relationships with local physicians. Many physicians have grown to trust and depend on the staff at PTSI to get their patients back to a high quality of life. They prefer the quality of care their patients receive and enjoy the communication they receive from Corey and his staff.

Accepts almost all insurances – In today’s health care it is difficult to find a clinic that accepts all insurances. PTSI accepts most insurances including but not limited to Workman’s compensation, VA, Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

Payment plan – We understand in today’s economic climate finances are tight. Our primary goal is to get you feeling better and back to a quality of life you are used to. We will work with you to establish a payment plan that fits your needs and can get you the treatment you deserve.

Finding the right specialist for your orthopedic needs just got easier!
