Professional Therapy Associates welcomes Flathead Valley residents to attend the grand opening celebration for its newest Montana physical therapy clinic location next to Family Health Care in Columbia Falls. The open house will take place February 9, 2012, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Attendees can take advantage of free physical therapy screenings and will also enjoy live music, food tastings from area eateries and door-prize giveaways featuring certificates from Flathead Valley restaurants and fitness centers.

Family Health Care offers a wide range of healthcare services. Family Health Care features internal medicine, family practice and urgent care providers. The facility is located at 1850 9th Street West in Columbia Falls.

“We are excited to welcome Flathead Valley residents to meet our staff and the Family Health Center team at our new Columbia Falls location,” said Blaine Stimac, owner and CEO of Professional Therapy Associates. “Our new physical therapy office offers a comfortable and professional atmosphere, as well as a convenient location with plenty of parking. It also provides the same expert care and state-of-the-art equipment our patients will find at all of our clinics. Our open house on February 9 will feature refreshments, music from a local guitarist and some great giveaways. We also encourage guests to take advantage of our free physical therapy screenings and learn how physical therapy may be able to help improve their overall health and wellbeing.”

The free physical therapy screenings will be conducted by one of Professional Therapy Associates’ highly trained physical therapists. Visitors can discuss any concerns or symptoms – such as pain or lack of mobility – with the physical therapist, who will evaluate body movement, balance and range of motion. Depending on the assessment, the physical therapist may recommend a few simple exercises to do at home, or can schedule a full evaluation if the individual would benefit from physical therapy treatment. Where medical treatment may be necessary, the therapist will refer the individual to the Family Health Care staff or their own primary care physician.

Blaine Stimac and his skilled team of licensed Montana physical therapists have been improving the lives of area residents for more than 23 years. To serve a growing client base, Professional Therapy Associates has expanded its practice to four locations throughout the Flathead Valley region.

“At Professional Therapy Associates, we have earned a reputation for providing the highest quality professional physical therapy care. We’re proud to work alongside our fellow Family Health Care practitioners, who are just as dedicated to their patients as we are to ours. It’s a good feeling to know our patients can take care of their physical therapy and general healthcare needs under one roof,” said Stimac. “We feel that physical therapy is a valuable part of an overall health and fitness plan, and we hope that Family Health Care patients will take the opportunity to meet with us if feel they can benefit from physical therapy treatment.”

Individuals who are experiencing pain from accidents, sports injuries, chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis, or general back, neck or shoulder pain are all candidates for physical therapy treatment. Physical therapy can help many patients alleviate pain without drugs, while strengthening joints and muscles to improve sports performance, range of motion, flexibility and balance. For many Professional Therapy Associates patients, whose lives were affected by pain or joint problems, physical therapy has allowed them to return to their favorite activities and enjoy a better quality of life.
