Explore our website to learn more about how our Integrative Approach to Physical Therapy targets the source of your pain to achieve results even when other treatments have failed.

We suspect that if you're visiting this website, you or someone you love is struggling with pain or nagging injuries that are disrupting their life (or yours) and preventing them from doing the things they want and need to do.   

At Inertia Physiotherapy we know that you might not be sure that physical therapy is the right treatment for you. That could be because you don't really know what physical therapy is, or maybe it's because you've already tried physical therapy and you didn't get the results you were hoping for. We understand this trepidation and we hope to answer many of the questions you may have and help you make the best decision about who you choose to help you resolve your pain and get back to your life.  


Below you'll learn more about the philosophy and Integrative approach of Inertia Physiotherapy and how it's different than a standard physical therapy clinic. In addition, you are invited to explore our speciality pages to find out more about the advanced treatment techniques we offer.  

At Inertia Physiotherapy in Missoula we Believe:

Successful treatment starts with truly listening to your whole story and focuses on identifying and treating the root cause of your problem with a holistic/integrative approach to physical therapy.

Your treatment plan should be determined by you and your licensed physical therapist, not your insurance company or 3rd party administrator.

We believe that there is hope for everyone to improve and do more with less pain. 

Our goal is simply to help you reach yours, so you can enjoy your favorite activities again without pain or limitation.

Below you can learn a bit more about who we help and what you can expect at Inertia Physiotherapy in Missoula.

At Inertia Physiotherapy we treat a variety of orthopedic pain and injuries, but we specialize in finding natural solutions for people suffering from chronic or persistent pain and recurrent injuries

It is frustrating when you are missing out on life because of pain, especially when you have already sought treatment without success. We are uniquely qualified and passionate about working with these types of cases. We understand that the whole body is connected and we know how to find the root cause of your pain and address the problem at the source. Because we don't just band aide the issue we help you fix the problem once and for all and you gain the freedom to do the things that you need to do and the things that make you smile.

We know that it is impossible to give you our full attention while tapping away at a keyboard, and that you don't feel heard when your provider is hiding behind their screen the whole time. That's why we won't be distracted by trying to complete documentation during your appointment. During your sessions at Inertia Physiotherapy you can expect to have the full attention of your therapist, and we'll take all the time we required to really understand your story and answer any questions you may have. We believe that truly listening is essential to the client/therapist relationship and the success of your treatment plan.   
We also know your time and money are valuable. During your treatment sessions at Inertia Physiotherapy, you won't waste your time with passive modalities like ice packs and you won't be watched while you do the exercises you could otherwise do at home. You'll receive expert hands-on manual therapy, movement coaching and lifestyle education that will help you see progress at each visit.  

Keep reading to hear about how Inertia Physiotherapy is likely different from any Physical Therapy treatment you've experienced before and how we've achieved results where others have failed. 

I had been dealing with pain in my both of my hips for about a year and a half before coming to Inertia Physiotherapy. It was getting worse and was an average of 7-8/10 on a daily basis.  It hurt to get out of my chair at work and I could only sleep 1-3 hours at night. I had done Physical Therapy before and had been given some stretches but they didn't really help. I feel so much better with Ana's treatments. I am sleeping better than I have in years (my husband agrees). I rarely have pain during the day and when I do it's much more mild and my exercises are helping. I am very grateful and happy with my results. 

-Candi E.  

I used to think that a sprained ankle was just a sprained ankle, a sore shoulder just a sore shoulder - and each pain or injury could be addressed by focusing on that particular problem. Ana doesn't work that way. She is actually aware of how everything in the body is connected - muscles, bones, connective tissue, nerves...even internal organs and a persons intentions in movement. Because of her holistic approach, Ana has helped me recover not only from recent injuries but also from chronic pain caused by long-ago injuries that never fully healed. With Ana's careful listening, touch and guidance, I move more freely than I have in years . I am deeply grateful.

About Inertia

Welcome to our Website


At Inertia Physiotherapy we practice, integrative physical therapy. This means we understand that no system in your body works alone. Your head bone really is connected to your foot bone, and where it hurts often isn't why it hurts. This is especially true when standard treatments have failed to provide relief. We believe in your body's innate ability to heal but that sometimes it needs help finding the way. 
We start your healing journey by taking ample time to listen to your story because we are all a sum of our life experiences. The things that happen to us, even events from our distant past can be the crucial details that lead to a deeper understanding of your unique problem and the solution
The key to finding success starts with an evaluation that looks at you as a whole person and is tailored to your body and your goals. In order to achieve this, the provider must understand all the systems of the body and how they are related. We don't just focus on the body part that hurts. We dig deeper to understand why it hurts and treat the problem at the source.
At Inertia Physiotherapy we are experts in this integrative evaluation and we have the tools needed to treat the right system at the right time so we can help you optimize your function and performance.   
This is how we can achieve better results than the standard approach to physical therapy.
