Blaine is the founder and owner of Recover Physical therapy. After working for others for 8 years he decided to establish his own practice where he could have freedom to offer his patients a more holistic, custom, and personalized approach to physical therapy. 

 

Blaine is a Southern Idaho native; he grew up in Oakley where he was very active in sports throughout the year and spent his summers working in agriculture and construction.  After high school he spent a two-year Church mission in Chile. He is fluent in Spanish.

 

He earned his degree in Exercise Science from BYU in 2009, and his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Marymount University in 2012.  In 2018 He further advanced his skills and earned certification as an orthopedic manual therapist (COMT).  Upon opening the practice he brought several unique rehab tools to the clinic, including Neubie electrical stimulation, an Anti-Gravity treadmill system, and onsite aquatic therapy. He coordinates with nutrition therapy practitioners that enable patients to achieve a higher degree of wellness in combination with excellent physical therapy. 

 

Blaine has a unique ability to truly listen to his patients, and understands how distressing pain and physical impairments can be.  He has gone above and beyond industry standards to research physical therapy literature and continue his education and skills. Outside of work he can often be found with his wife and 5 children. Together they love biking, skiing, hiking, church service, and getting involved in our great community.
