Pintler Physical Therapy & Sports Rehab began as an idea while Dr. Mike Cline PT, DPT, was completing physical therapy school and working on his clinical rotations. At many levels, both as an active patient in therapy and as a growing provider in the field, Mike realized the profession often fostered a culture of complacency with a lack of enthusiasm and inspiration. Therapists were often world-weary and struggled to find joy in their craft. Mike began to visualize an idealistic clinic that encouraged the type of atmosphere where patients would genuinely thrive. Mike wanted to establish a clinic with a team possessing the desire to elevate their craft beyond mediocrity and provide a physical therapy service unlike anywhere else.
Mike’s family has strong ties to the Anaconda, Montana area going back to when both of his grandfathers worked on the historic smelter. His vision flourished further from the recognition that the Anaconda-Deer Lodge valley would benefit from a facility that emphasized direct, patient-centered care. As a community, it became apparent the physical therapy services in the area was not sufficient. Mike felt it would greatly benefit the community if he could replicate this type of facility in Anaconda and Butte.
