This place was fantastic! I dealt with some abnormal back pain for quite a while before finally deciding to visit a physical therapist. Dr. Cordell Pickering was very friendly and helped me to get my back feeling better while providing plenty of resources and help along the way. I would highly recommend Dr. Pickering for any sort of back problems.
Less than two months ago, I was having intense lower back pain. This was due to a condition I have known as psoriatic arthritis. I was in so much pain, I went to a pain specialist in Idaho Falls, where they had planned to give me an epidural to help with the swelling in my back. Having a long needle in my back for 10 minutes kind of freaked me out and I didn’t go thru with it. That was November of 2019. So instead, I chose to go to Doctor Pickering who taught me what I needed to do to strengthen my back muscles. After two weeks of physical therapy at PickPT, my back problems were practically gone. I wanted to minimize the change of ever needing an injection, and decided to continue seeing Doctor Pickering. For months, I have been nearly pain free in my lower back!
I went to Pick PT after having surgery. I was able to heal quickly and met all of my goals to getting back to normal! The staff is so friendly and they know what they are doing! Doctor Pickering did an amazing job of pushing me to get better while also making sure I was never in pain. If I could give them 10 stars I would!

Our Physical Therapy Services
Pick PT has an incredible team of skilled, certified and experienced physical therapists at our Idaho Falls location. Our goal is to help people LIVE LIFE MOVING, there are a variety of issues that may be preventing you from living a life like that. We do our best to identify what is going on and creating a customized treatment plan to help improve your quality of life. Every patient we treat is unique but some of the conditions we frequently work with include but are not limited to the following:
Back Pain Relief
Back pain is an extremely common reason people come to Pick PT. Chronic or even just short term back pain can be debilitating. It can dramatically change an active and productive lifestyle into a sedintary one. This could easily lead to other problems that will negatively impact your life. If you have been suffering from back pain and live in here in the Idaho Falls area, come and chat with our physical therapists today. We've helped hundreds of others get back to a more fulfilling life and we can likely do the same for. We will take a holistic approach to your medical care and create a customized treatment plan just for you and your needs.
Neck Pain Relief
People suffering from neck pain is another extremely common patient in our clinic. You never realize how much you turn your head until it becomes difficult or painful to do so. Our skilled staff of physical therapy professionals can help identify what may be causing your pain. In addition to creating a treatment plan for you, we'll ask questions to try and identify what may be causing or contributing to your chronic neck pain. Sometimes there are small changes in your sleeping positions or daily habits that may be causing the pain outside of obvious injuries or accidents.
Other Chronic Pain Relief
Chronic pain of any kind is a sign that things just aren't working the way they should be. In most situations, we can either help relieve or reduce the amount of pain to help give you a higher quality of life. When you come in to meet with our team, we will walk you through the full process trying to identify what the true source of your pain is. Then from there we assess what needs to be done to help relieve or reduce the pain you are experiencing. In many cases, the muscles aren't quite firing the way they need to be or an area of the body needs to be strengthened. We can then create a treatment plan to get you well on your way to living a better life.
Accident or Injury Recovery
Car accidents, slips, trips, falls, and whatever else may have happened can leave you seriously hurt. Sometimes, the pain goes away with a little bit of time and the body will heal itself. In other situations, your body may need a little help recovering. That's where Pick PT comes in. We have years of experience identifying and helping relieve pain in a variety of different situations.
Many of our therapists participated heavily in athletics during high school and still currently play to this day. We know what enjoyment and satisfaction sports can bring to a person's life. We also understand the difficulty and the pain athletic injuries can bring. We do our best to create a plan to get you back out on the field and feeling great.
Athletic Performance Conditioning
One of the great advantages Pick PT's Idaho Falls location is that it is located within a fitness and performance gym. This means that we easily have access to world-class fitness and conditioning equipment. Dr. Pickering and our other physical therapists can help athletes improve their overall sports performance. We can also develop a training regiment to build and strengthen our patients. We cannot entirely prevent but our athletic conditioning programs can reduce the likelihood of injuries later.
The time and what a person does after a surgery occurs is important. It's important that proper therapy happens to help the body appropriately recover. If it doesn't it could negatively impact other portions of the body.
Physical Therapy FAQ Section
Q: Do I need a doctor referral to schedule a visit?
A: Idaho is a direct access state meaning that most individuals can access physical therapy without a doctor referral. That being said, some insurances do require pre-approval which does require a doctor referral. If you are unsure, give us a call and we will check with your insurance company to see if you require pre-approval.
Q: Is physical therapy expensive?
A: We are contracted and in-network with many insurance providers. We follow standard rates set by the state and contractual agreement with insurance companies. Pricing will vary depending on who you are insured with. Each individual can expect to pay copays/coinsurance if required by their insurance and deductibles where needed to be met. We also accept cash-pay for uninsured individuals and follow standard rates set by the state.
Q: How long will each session be?
A: Each session can be expected to range from 60-75 minutes. The first visit may take longer due to the need for an initial assessment and paperwork to be filled out prior to treatment.
