Welcome to the first APRS Physical Therapy blog! We hope to educate, motivate, and inspire everyone to live, work, and play to their very best!
APRS Physical Therapy was started in 1981 by Gary & Mary Jo Lusin and was originally called Bozeman Physical Therapy (fitting right?). Located in the Medical Arts Building on Wilson, Bozeman Physical Therapy was the first out patient physical therapy clinic in the Bozeman area and specialized in general orthopedics working closely within the entire medical community.
By the mid-1990’s Gary & Mary Jo realized that Bozeman Physical Therapy offered more than just physical therapy services and thus, Advanced Performance & Rehabilitation Services was born! Providing occupational therapy, athletic training, work injury prevention and rehabilitation, sports injury prevention and performance enhancement, etc., APRS had grown into a multi-dimensional clinic serving people in all walks of life, work, and sport!
Over the years, Gary & Mary Jo have had the privilege to work with phenomenal therapists and staff. As the company grew, they brought on John Sveen as their first partner. Not long after that, Kevin Pancich, then Kelsey Wadsworth, and most recently John-Henry Anderson. Physical therapist founded, physical therapist owned, and physical therapist managed, we will always strive to provide top quality rehabilitation at the most affordable prices.
As the new millenium emerged, so did a new clinic located off of Highland Boulevard, just northeast of the hospital and located next door to Rocky Mountain Surgical Center and Bridger Orthopedic.
Mary Jo has since retired and Gary can see retirement waiting for him. Advanced Performance & Rehabilitation Services (kind of a mouthful) was re-branded in 2016 as APRS Physical Therapy and we now have two clinics to better serve Bozeman and the surrounding area. We specialize in orthopedics, vestibular rehabilitation, sports medicine, and work place injuries, APRS Physical Therapy continues to be the top physical therapy clinic in Bozeman, MT.
Our new clinic, located in the Ferguson Farm development, reflects our dedication to open space, natural light, and an optimal environment for our patients and staff. We currently have four therapists working at our West Clinic.
With 10 clinicians at our East Clinic, we are conveniently located close to Bozeman Health hospital and Northern Rockies Surgical Center. We have 9 treatment rooms and a 12,000 sq ft gym space for providing our patients with the best rehab experience possible.
Thank you for reading about APRS Physical Therapy. Thank you to all of our many patients, therapists, staff, friends, and families over the years. We hope to help all of you reach your goals in life, work, and sport well into the future!
Gary, John, Kevin, Kelsey, and John-Henry
