Physical Therapy

We utilize the latest equipment and technology in our Boise/Garden City clinic to help you get the results you need!


Game Ready and Recovery Boots

Vasopneumatic Ice and compression to move fluid, aide removal of excessive fluid, and help with pain control.

Vibration Therapies

You will absolutely love the way your muscle feel after using the Hypervolt or Vyper on your sore muscles. These vibration therapy techniques knock down adhesions and trigger points, allowing your muscles to activate through a pain free range.

Olympic Lifting Assessment

We utilize video analysis to break down form and find “sticking points” in you squat and Olympic lifts. We are then able to implement proper corrective exercises to mobilize tissue and maximize joint mobilization.

Running Form Analysis

we utilize video analysis to break down your running form, and then implement necessary corrective exercises to allow you to run as efficient as possible.

Dry Needling

Functional Dry Needling is a powerful modality utilized at Rock and Armor to treat a myriad of injuries. Sterile, tiny monofilament needles are inserted into muscles to reduce trigger point activity, release shortened bands of tissue, and promote new blood flow and healing to the site of injury. Physical Therapist at Rock and Armor have been trained in Functional Dry Needling through Kinetacore and meet all of the requirements of the State of Idaho to perform this treatment.

Therapeutic Cupping

cupping is a great modality to loosen muscle tissue and increase circulation/blood flow to a specific area. The suction of the cup lifts the layers of dermis and fascia away from muscle. Blood in brought to the surface of the skin, allowing new blood to come in below and “flush” the area, creating an environment for optimum healing.

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation

We utilize Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) to contract a muscle that is not properly firing. This procedure is commonly utilized following surgery when nerve conduction has been compromised from excessive edema, tournicate during the procedure, and disuse. NMES is utilized until normal muscle recruitment is achieved.

Y-Balance Test

The Y-Balance test helps athletes compare strength, balance, and coordination of their right lower extremity vs left lower extremity following injury or surgical procedures. A score of 5 or more cm’s can indicate significant muscle imbalance that requires further care.

Joint Manipulations (HVLAT’s)

Joint manipulations, or high velocity/low amplitude thrusts (HVLAT) are an effective treatment for hypombile or “stuck” joints of the spine. These manipulations can improve neural conductivity, joint space, and release of endorphins, allowing a decrease in pain and an improvement in mobility.

Concussion Rehab

- Concussion rehab program is designed to help you get back to doing what you love. We are certified through Evidence in Motion’s (EIM) Concussion Certification Program to diagnose symptoms, treat your concussion, and evaluate your ability to return to work/sport. We work closely with your physician, athletic trainer, employer, and school to achieve the best possible outcomes.


Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization, or ASTYM, is an extremely effective manual therapy technique used to mobilized collagen and myofibrils associated with pain and injury. This technique is effective for trigger points, tendonitis, tendinosis, chronic soft tissue injuries, and overuse injuries.
