River City Physical Therapy - About Us 

River City Physical Therapy was established in 1995 with one fundamental, predominant theme- to provide the most professional, medically sound therapeutic care in North Idaho that is possible.  That underlying theme is the foundation of our service today, and will always be the core of our excellent patient care.

River City Physical Therapy’s mission statement describes not only our commitment to excellence, but our understanding that each patient requires, indeed deserves, individual consideration and treatment, never losing sight of their comfort and needs in that process. We believe that the best patient care must be evidence based, and we strive to continually update our care methods consistent with the updates in the medical community.

Our endeavor is good health, and to that end, we promote, and encourage health practices that we trust will always be of value to our patients, as well as the community at large. To that end, we are proud to be a part of the local communities, with the privilege of serving Physical Therapy in Post Falls as well as the surrounding area. We appreciate that opportunity profoundly, and strive never to lose sight of our "Commitment to Excellence."
