If your a veteran and your referred...don't bother. Took almost two weeks for the doctor to review the referral before I was called to make appointment...then the appointment was another two months off anyway. The VA is bad enough, but if you have to endure this wait time as well, then its pointless. There are other places to go in Missoula.

Northern Rockies Physical Therapy
The therapists at Northern Rockies Physical Therapy are highly educated, experienced, and are genuinely great people. The office is comfortable, they have a full gym and best of all, they work directly with my physician! I know when I go there, they have MY best interest at heart and they work hard to make sure I have the tools and the knowledge to help myself heal and to keep from re-injuring myself. I would recommend them to anyone young or old...they seem to have enough therapists to do it all!
Tips & Advices
Scoliosis is a disorder where the spine curves sideways. Most people develop the condition during the growth spurt before puberty. The cause of scoliosis is unknown and most cases are mild, but the rare severe instances can disable a person.
Orthopedic surgeons attend four years of medical school, then four to five years of orthopedic residency in a hospital. They must also be licensed and certified in orthopedic surgery by the state in which they practice.
The terms "orthopedic doctor" and "orthopedic surgeon" refer to the same profession. Related specialties include podiatrist, a doctor who works with the bones, tendons and ligaments in the feet, and a sports medicine physician, a doctor specially trained to treat athletes.
The cost of a visit to an orthopedic surgeon depends on the type of tests ordered and treatment given. For example, an MRI costs $500-$1,300. An initial consultation costs $100- $500, while anesthesia for a procedure generally ranges from $2,000-$4,000. Overall, an orthopedic surgery can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000.
During a consultation or first appointment with an orthopedic surgeon, the practitioner will ask the patient a variety of questions to understand the situation. The surgeon might ask about the patient's pain levels, medical history, and any prior injuries. Then, the surgeon will administer a physical exam and possibly schedule tests to better understand the problem. Possible tests include a stress test, x-ray, or MRI.
