Megan at the front desk is wonderful. Always a smile and friendly manner while handling billing and insurance questions expertly.
The front office staff is always welcoming, fun and positive. They are great with patients, explaining costs and billing for insurance thoroughly, and juggling appointments around work schedules.
My thanks to GSM for making a challenging knee replacement rehab into a great lasting relationship.
I owe GSM a great deal for helping me restore my body and health to normal function, and for continuing to help me as I need tune-ups.
I can now ski, work, and do all the outdoor activities that I have always enjoyed, just like I did prior to injury. I would recommend them for anybody young or old regardless of injury.
In 1997, surgery was performed on all 10 of my toes to correct bunions and hammertoes and I was fitted for orthotics. After continuing to tolerate pain and discomfort in my feet and winning an “ugly foot” contest, it was time to take action. An appointment was scheduled to see Gary at GSM.
Gary showed me that the orthotics I had were not correcting my foot issues!! He gave me different orthotics and exercises to help strengthen my toes. Thank you Gary for your expertise and helping me know what shoes to wear, for answering all my questions, and for assistance in making my toes go in the right direction. Please note: I will be back for a follow-up!!
I’ve been going to see Darcy for a number of years. Darcy pushes me to realize my body’s abilities and to understand what I should and shouldn’t do to recover and maintain my normal activities. Darcy goes into detail to show you what and where the problem is. Being trained and adept at using dry needling therapy has added to her skills. For my nerve pain originating in my lower back, it’s made a big difference. It’s working.
You don’t have to drag your feet to show up for physical therapy at this place. Entering Granite Sports Medicine is a happy experience! There is an infectious enthusiasm that helps patients want to get better. Darcy goes out of her way to really show you what’s going on with your body, and seems to genuinely enjoy sharing as much knowledge as possible with her patients. She’s the best.
Darcy helped me through my knee replacement therapy in a compassionate, but determined and encouraging manner. She was great in educating me in many ways: what exercises to do, why those exercises were the best for me, and how to properly do the exercises.
She did many different types of therapy including hands on, ultra sound and most recently dry needling. All of these techniques helped me make a great recovery from my knee replacement surgery. My thanks to GSM for making a challenging knee replacement rehab into a great lasting relationship.
In Jan. 2011, I suffered a severe fall while skiing, which fractured my neck badly and tore my left ACL.
Darcy put her full attention and training to work with my injuries before and after surgery, and over the next 8 months helped me overcome partial paralysis in my left arm, rehabilitated my neck and knee injuries, and regained the strength, muscle tone and fitness that I had prior to my accident.
She gave me exercises and therapies to use at home and at the gym, and answered my questions any time I needed help.While physical therapy is not a fun process to go through, Darcy and her staff made it as enjoyable as possible, and were very accommodating to my schedule and needs. We always managed to laugh at the pain somehow!
I had major surgery on my right shoulder in Nov. 2011 and went to Darcy Cook at GSM for my therapy. Her knowledge of anatomy and how to strengthen each muscle group with the proper physical therapy exercise is amazing.
What I really appreciate about Darcy is she listens to what I am saying if I have a particular problem area I am dealing with and then she addresses it. I had one area in my shoulder that cause me some discomfort when I raised my arm overhead so Darcy dry needled that area and after just two sessions the problem was solved.
I am now back at work full time. I am able to do everything I was doing before my surgery like carpentry, snowmobiling, and cutting and chopping firewood. If you have to do physical therapy then Granite Sports Medicine is the place to do it.
I was experiencing a problem with my right knee and after an MRI I was diagnosed with a small tear in my meniscus along with some arthritis. The last thing I wanted to do was have surgery. I called and talked to Megan at GSM and she got me in quickly to talk with Darcy about my symptoms.
Darcy recommended dry needling of the trigger points in my thigh. I was desperate for some kind of relief so I told her to go ahead. Darcy explained and talked to me through the process which was very helpful. I won’t lie, it was uncomfortable for a few seconds, but the results are so amazing! After just one treatment the burning was almost gone and after the third needling treatment it is totally gone. It feels so good to live without that burning pain. I would recommend dry needling to anyone experiencing any kind of muscle pain. Thank you so much.
Darcy is so determined, not easily discouraged, and she never gives up; even with my old chronic injuries! My many years of hairdressing with poor posture and body mechanics – misuse and overuse wear and tear - led to chronic pain and limited motion.
With Darcy’s specialized individual treatment, and personal and caring help, I have better range of motion and less pain. Thanks for all you do!
Darcy has been an amazing therapist, the best I have had; she's a godsend! For more than 10 years I fought chronic pain. I was suffering from back pain, right knee pain; numbness in my thigh and just plain couldn’t sleep more than an hour or two. After she evaluated me, Darcy told me I was not walking correctly, she identified which muscles were not being used, developed exercises to get those muscles firing and we were making progress.
Then she became certified in Dry Needling which has sped up my therapy and the pain is almost nonexistent. I wish I could have her dry needle my whole body!! Darcy’s ability, positive attitude and her love of helping people makes GSM the ideal place for an upbeat, fun recovery.
Darcy loves life, loves her patients, and she loves a challenge. What a perfect combination!
While recovering from a surgery that involved multiple procedures on one knee, I had lots of questions of which Darcy Cook was always able to answer. Within the first visit, it became apparent that she is passionate about physical therapy. She strives for the best outcomes possible.
It is evident she stays informed with the latest in physical therapy news and advances in technology regarding the profession. Darcy is organized and thoughtful about her individualized treatment protocols.
Thanks to her and to the staff at Granite Sports Medicine, I left each visit feeling positive about my recovery. We are lucky to be able to receive such care in the state of Montana.
Darcy’s knowledge of the body is amazing. She utilizes a variety of treatment modalities to best meet one’s changing needs during the healing process. Darcy’s best asset is her ability to be cheerleader for any progress made. Her enthusiasm for her client’s improvement is contagious, regardless how one truly feels. She makes you want to help yourself more.
Megan will help you with the insurance billing in a timely and efficient manner. The office atmosphere is one of friendliness, encouragement, and efficiency. We highly recommend Granite Sports Medicine for physical therapy needs.
