Your first visit to Flicker Physical Therapy will include an initial evaluation followed by your first treatment. You and your therapist will review your symptoms and medical history, and the therapist will carefully assess your posture, gait, flexibility, strength, and balance.
You will learn how to manage and care for your symptoms, receive manual therapy if necessary, begin to learn how to complete exercises safely and with the correct form, and may be treated with some type of therapeutic modalities. (ice, electrical stimulation, soft tissue massage, traction, etc.)
Together with your therapist, you will set goals for your therapy, learn how to be safe and treat pain outside of therapy, develop a plan for home exercises, and design a plan for your treatment, including how frequently you will attend therapy, and for how long.
It is best to wear shoes and comfortable items of clothing that are appropriate for exercise. Wearing clothes that are loose fitting enough or allow access to the area being treated is a great help (i.e. wearing shorts if you are being treated for a knee).
When you arrive to your first visit, you will need to bring your referral from your physician (if your doctor’s office has not previously faxed it to us), all your insurance information, both primary and secondary, a list of all the medications you are currently taking, any diagnostic test results pertinent to the condition you are being treated for, and appropriate attire for your first treatment.
Treatment times generally last between an hour and an hour and a half depending on your specific diagnosis. For your first visit, please plan to arrive approximately 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to fill out all necessary paperwork.
No. Idaho is a direct-access state which means we can see you without first receiving a referral from your doctor. However, most insurances will not reimburse for physical therapy services unless you have a physician referral. We are more than happy to help you obtain a referral from your doctor.

They have really gone over and beyond dealing with my problems 👍🏼 All of the help has been great 😉 They also put up with my BS 🤪 Looking forward to next appointment ☺️. UPDATE REVIEW: Well it’s been over three months now with Flicker Therapy and things could’ve been better 👍🏼 Have had some health issues and had to cancel a couple appointments at last minute and they have been great about it and rescheduling. I have worked with a half dozen different pt’s and have all been very efficient and pleasant to work with. Just had surgery on my foot 🦶 and now I’m home bound for 6-8 weeks and they are coming to my house for home therapy to keep me going 😊 Been great didn’t want to loose what I had gained and they have been more than adequate to handle this at home services. Been absolutely great to work with along with Home Health Care 👍🏼🙏😉

Tim, Pam, and the other staff are tremendous! They know their jobs and do all in their power to treat everyone to the best of their ability. I would highly suggest them. They even do home visits.

After my prior physical therapist retired I was unsure where to go after my knee replacement. Let's start off with the good. I worked mainly with Paige and Matt. They were both extremely knowledgeable and knew just how to motivate me to push through the pain. Once the pain decreased they made it fun to be there. Matt helped me with my goal of being able to run again and I hadn't been able to run for years. Now for the bad....there is none. I highly recommend Flicker to anyone needing help getting back on their feet. I pray that I won't need to go back but I would look forward to it if I did.

Amazing skills and service. Helped me recover from an ACL injury in 3 months. Came in 48 hrs after the injury and their care and expertise made all the difference in my recovery. Like all physical therapy you have to work hard at home too but their phone app exercises help you know what to do to be successful at home. Their physical therapists and assistants all take great interest in their patients and really know what they are doing. Great one on one care. Physical therapists are very involved in the experience.

I progressed from a walker to a quad cane to a hiking pole to my bicycle because of Flicker Physical Therapy. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Need I say more?

I have been a patient with Flicker physical therapy for 3 months. After having two TKR’s I needed a lot of help to get moving! I have had incredible therapists in my Home health recovery and afterward in their clinic. I have always been treated with respect and taken care of beyond what I could have imagined! Thanks to Tim, Trina, Pam, Ryan, and Brekell specifically for all your patience and hard work to get me walking again! I highly recommend Flicker Physical Therapy for PT! Sincerely,Vanessa Treadwell
Highly recommend Flicker for all your PT needs. Very professional and work as a team. They are very good at explaining exactly what they are doing and why. I was there for both of my knee replacements and would go back if I ever need PT again.
I had a knee replacement and everyone at Flicker Physical Therapy has been amazing!! I would recommend anyone who needs physical therapy go there! No matter who you work with, you’ll be glad you did. Thank you everyone at Flicker. I appreciate all of you and the wonderful job you do.
I have been going to them since April. I felt very comfortable and informed every time. One on one care has been exceptional. They listen to what you are saying and change the plan if needed. The entire staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. I would recommend them in a second,

They took such good care of husband after knee surgery!
Would recommend Flicker Physical Therapy. Jarrod helped me get my shoulder back in working condition after surgery. He was very efficient and did great job. Everyone was friendly and caring. Good job Flicker and physical therapist Jarrod.
Tim and his team are absolutely the best!!! I've been to other PTs where they treat multiple patients at the same time, but this never happens at Flicker. It's always one-on-one therapy, which really made the difference in my recovery!

The staff are all knoweldgeable, friendly and welcoming. I'm always impressed with the different techniques they use on my therapy. Unlike other places where they have you doing the same things over and over with very little variety. I also like the way they show special care to the elderly clients. I would highly recommend Flicker PhysicalTherapy !
Had physical therapy, after a total knee replacement, with physical therapist Mike. The best experience I've ever had. One on one personal attention to specific needs. He's very personable & easy to talk to. He made me feel comfortable, confident & relaxed in the approach we took to gain strength back in my knee. I wish I could keep him for myself. Lol

Not thrilled about having to do therapy afterward my at home therapy for three weeks. (Had hip replacement done). However, with bursitis in hip that travels down leg, the therapy seems to be helping very much . Mary is really patient with me and she explains things to reassure me. I still have a way to go . I would recommend Dr Flicker and his wife's place if you need help in this field.
Everyone was very nice and professional. Thank you for everything you had done for me. You all feel like family And I will be back if I ever need physical therapy again. Thank you Kylie you are Awsome.
