Yes. The choice of where you receive therapy is always yours. While the majority of our patients come to us by physician referral/recommendation, many clients request to see us due to our strong clinical reputation in the community.

No. Idaho is a direct access state and we welcome self-referrals. However, some insurance policies require a physician’s referral. Please call our friendly office staff and they can help to determine if a referral is required by your insurance.

We participate in the majority of major health insurance plans including Medicare and Worker’s Compensation. Please contact us prior to your first visit to see if we participate with your specific health plan.

As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card to ensure that we have the necessary information.

Your therapist will conduct an evaluation of your condition lasting between 60-90 minutes. The evaluation is necessary to create a program designed specifically to address your needs for a maximum recovery.

– Referral slip from your medical doctor
– Your medical insurance card
– Your ID
– If you are getting therapy as a result of a worker’s compensation claim or an automobile accident, you will also need to bring your claim information, including claim number.

Please arrive 15 minutes early on your first visit to fill out any necessary paperwork.

We recommend comfortable clothing such as sweatpants or shorts, a T-shirt or tank-top and sneakers.

Each visit will last 60 – 90 minutes on average. Times vary due to the treatment and exercises being performed.

The regularity of your visits will be determined after your initial evaluation, but most patients have 3 visits each week scheduled.


“My experience at Intermountain Physical Therapy has been nothing but great! Their staff are kind, helpful and really knows what they are doing! Their therapists really worked hard to strengthen and bring movement back to my shoulder after a painful fall and two surgeries. They used lots of techniques and observed me carefully each time I was here. I’m thankful and appreciate all they've done for me and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a qualified physical therapist! Jim at the front desk is also awesome! He worked with my scheduling problems and is always pleasant when we come in! Everyone has a great sense of humor and coming in is always an experience that is helpful and friendly!”
