Kalispell Regional Healthcare offers outpatient physical therapy services in Lakeside, Montana, located inside the Westshore Medical Fitness Center. Westshore Physical Therapy, a department of Kalispell Regional Medical Center, provides treatment for patients of all ages who need spinal and extremity care, chronic pain relief, balance and coordination training, and postsurgical recovery.
We focus on treatment and improvement, helping individuals achieve independence from physical therapy – instead of dependence on physical therapy. We focus on the unique issues that are of concern to each patient in order to achieve optimal outcomes and regain normal function.
Westshore Physical Therapy is a single therapist location, and patients receive one-on-one attention from the physical therapist during every appointment.
The physical therapist at Westshore Physical Therapy consults and coordinates care with other Kalispell Regional Healthcare providers, and can review tests and procedures when relevant.
Westshore Physical Therapy services include:
- Spinal and extremity care
- Postsurgical recovery
- Chronic pain treatment
- Motor control and strength training
- Balance and coordination training
- Geriatric care
Fitness Center Benefits
Because of the shared location in the Westshore Medical Fitness Center, patients at Westshore Physical Therapy also have exclusive use of the fitness center during physical therapy visits.
In addition, once patients are finished with formal physical therapy, Westshore Medical Fitness Center will waive their registration fee for gym membership ($50 value) for ongoing health maintenance.
