We understand that Governor Brad Little has ordered a shelter in place, effective immediately (3/25/2020) for the next 21 days. These are uncertain times and we have had quite a few people already ask if we are deemed an essential service. The U.S. Dept of Homeland Security has deemed Physical Therapy service essential, and we do have a responsibility to our patients, and future patients, to try and maintain our business hours the best that we can.
Until further notice we will be open for treatment on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 7 am – 6 pm. On Tuesdays and Thursdays no patients will be seen in the clinic, but staff will be available to answer your questions via telephone from 9 am – 5 pm. If you are thinking about cancelling your appointment because you are quarantining yourself, or if you are sick, please try to give us 24 hours notice. We have reduced our patient load significantly and there are patients who are in need of physical therapy and cannot be seen immediately due to our strict schedule. If you cancel without ample notice, we will be unable to fit someone in that vacant slot. However, if you develop any flu-like or cold-like symptoms (cough, fever, shortness of breath, throwing up) please cancel your appointment no matter how short of notice it may be.

If anyone has questions or concerns please call us at 208-789-0200. And in honor of J.R.R. Tolkein day, here are some words to chew on, “The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and through in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.” -J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
