Bringing Motion to Life

Your ability to move pain-free and effortlessly is easy to take for granted – until you no longer have it.

Physical therapy can help you feel and function your best. At Benefis, licensed physical therapists and physical therapy assistants guide and motivate you as you work to recover from an injury or medical condition. We aim to lessen pain, restore mobility, and prevent disability.

What We Help 

Benefis Physical Therapy can help with a wide range of medical conditions, including:

  • Orthopedic problems caused by sports injuries or damage to bones, muscles, ligaments, or tendons
  • Neurological disorders such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and traumatic brain injury that may affect mobility and cause muscles to weaken
  • Concussions, that follow a blow to the head
  • Health issues related to growing older, such as osteoporosis (weakening bones), joint replacement surgery, balance problems, and incontinence
  • Heart and lung conditions that affect stamina and endurance
  • Lymphedema, which is the accumulation of fluid in an extremity or the body, often caused by mastectomy, radiation treatments, trauma, or sports injuries

Treatments We Use

We evaluate everyone we see to assess their condition and form a care plan tailored to their specific needs. Then we use various treatments to aid recovery. Among them are:

  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Joint mobilization
  • Strength training
  • Heat and cold therapies
  • Ultrasound to promote blood flow
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Light therapy
  • Massage
  • Orthotic and prosthetic training

Aside from helping people recover more quickly, these treatments may sometimes lessen the need for pain medication, help you avoid surgery, and prevent additional problems, such as falls.

Specialized Care for Lymphedema

Benefis Physical Therapy is pleased to have a therapist on staff who is certified in complete decongestive therapy (CDT) for the management of lymphedema.

CDT consists of gentle massage that helps drain excess fluid from the body, as well as compression bandaging, therapeutic exercise, and skin care for the affected area. It may significantly reduce pain and swelling and improve range of motion in people living with lymphedema.

Injury Screening at The Peak

We encourage members of The Peak Health and Wellness Center who believe they may have suffered an injury to stop by the Peak Therapy Clinic at 1800 Benefis Court, Great Falls, for a 15-minute injury assessment. Benefis physical therapists at the clinic will do a brief evaluation, as well as offer treatment recommendations and workout adjustments. If necessary, they may suggest that you schedule a full evaluation or see a provider.

This service is free, and no appointment is necessary.
