Great Divide Physical Therapy

Great Divide Physical Therapy


The entire staff is great to work with. Kate Skinner can get to the point and fix you up while you are comfortable. Recommend the whole staff for your PT. Yes Kate I have recommended many to you and your staff including my wife.
Thanks again to Kate at Great Divide Physical Therapy. 3 years ago (even 1 year ago) I couldn't have imagined going to Disneyland, and walking and standing all day. This week we did 3 parks in 3 days and my Garmin logged 27.24 miles. My hips and back did great! Thank you! ❀️
Thank you Lisa, I'm feeling much better I hike about 5 miles today in 2 hours and my hip feels great!
Dr. Karli Gutman is the best!

Happy Birthday to Rebeccah!! Here she is enjoying the Missouri River and a summer afternoon! Comment below with positive Birthday VIBES!!


If you've seen Kate in the last few weeks, then you've probably seen Allie! She is completing her final internship with Great Divide as part of her final year of DPT school at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota. She was born and raised in Montana, and enjoys cross country skiing, hiking, and a good cup of coffee β˜•οΈ Welcome Allie!


Meet our newest PT Rebeccah McMillan! Rebeccah is a Missoula native and she brings over 25 years of experience in orthopedics and manual therapy including dry needling. When she is not working she enjoys eating good food and exploring the mountains, valleys, and rivers of the world πŸŒ„ You can find her at our Great Northern Loop location. Welcome Rebeccah!


Don’t worry - you don’t have to come into our clinic this fastπŸ’¨ But we are settling in here at our Bancroft location!!

Your Great Divide Team πŸ–€ Enjoying a great dinner at Pangea to celebrate a great year!


Any time of year is a good time to make positive changes for your health and wellbeing! Self care is an excellent way to help "fill your cup" instead of run on empty. It's ok to make self care a priority πŸ’›


The Great Divide PT Team is expanding! But with that, we are growing out of our space on Great Northern Loop. Two of our providers - Kate Skinner and Karli Vaculik, will be treating patients out of a new location effective TODAY! This new clinic space is located inside of Natura. The good news: same phone number 😎 Let us know if you have questions!

Postural Stretches with Foam Roller

Posture stretches - we know we all need them! Check out this video by our PT Karli for two stretches you can try to help with posture. These are great to do at the end of your work day if you have to sit for work, or at the end of a long drive. Drop any Questions below ⬇️


We are thankful to be a part of this great profession πŸ’› It is a privilege to help our clients lead healthier and more pain-free lives. Thank you for being a part of our journey!


3 weeks away and still time to sign up!


Sooo is that too much time?? πŸ˜†


Do you know how much activity is recommended for the average adult? Check out this great graphic from the American Heart Association for guidelines! ❀️

Just like your car needs to get the oil changed and tires rotated to run better, our bodies need regular exercise to "run better" as well! πŸš΄πŸ’ƒπŸ‹

These guidelines can sound ambitious if you have not been doing any exercise routine, and this is not where anyone should start on Day 1. PT can be great starting point if you don't quite know where to begin.


Real talk... A LOT of us have issues we are ignoring. It can be so easy to put off addressing various aches and pains if they are not limiting what we want to do. Our healthcare system perpetuates this too - we mostly go to the doctor when something is wrong. Most of us don't have yearly physicals after high school until Medicare!

Well, we've got an option for you. The PTs at Great Divide have developed a screen that can identify areas that need help - before they become an issue.

On October 25th, you can sign up for a 1 hour appointment to assess your strength, ROM, functional movements, and posture. You will walk away with strategies to manage any issues that you have, and tools to keep you doing what you want to. Contact us to sign up!
