Alpine Orthopaedics - Physical Therapy

Dr. Beim and the providers at Alpine Orthopaedics believe that surgery is only one small component of a multi-dimensional equation for successful recovery from orthopaedic disease or injury. We consider physical therapy critical to the success of surgery or non-surgery treatment. We work alongside experienced therapists to provide our patients with the tools and education they need for success in recovery or prevention.
