My name is Mike Cline, and I am a native of Helena, Montana. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Health and Human Performance from Montana State University-Bozeman in 2009, and I received my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2016 from the University of Findlay in Findlay, Ohio. My collegiate career began with a baseball scholarship that was cut short by injury, which played a large part in me choosing physical therapy as a career. To this day, I have particular interests in the rehabilitation of throwing athletes; and the prevention of overuse injuries, especially those in adolescent and teenage athletes. The foundation of my treatment approach is based on promoting

correct biomechanics and improving movement patterns. Other interests include Orthopedic Manual Therapy, Vestibular, and Post-Concussion rehab and my goal is to continue with additional training in these areas. I am an avid outdoorsman and I am ecstatic to be returning to the northern Rockies following my stint in the Midwest. In my spare time I can usually be found bowhunting, fly- fishing, or just hiking and exploring the mountains with my fiancé Sara and my dog Ruger. I am excited to be joining the Pinnacle Physical Therapy team and I look forward to the opportunity to make some new friends while helping people to improve and embrace a healthy lifestyle.

Patient Results I can now move and perform! “Physical Therapy has helped me beyond words. The best action is taken by movement. I came to Pinnacle in severe back pain, mentally & physically limited. With treatment, exercise and compassion I can now move and perform daily functions again.”
