WHO WE ARE Jared Pugmire, Physical Therapist, High Desert Physical Therapy Pocatello, ID


Although the High Desert Physical Therapy treats patients from Pocatello, Chubbuck, and surrounding areas with a large span of ailments and issues that a normal clinic can treat, we also offer more. With specialized training and equipment, we are prepared to aid and assist those who also suffer with balance and vestibular and concussion issues. We have a bi-lingual therapist, who also recognizes the importance of patient retention. He takes time to explain, educate, and coach his patients so they understand the importance of completing a tailor-made health-care regimen.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is an FDA approved, advanced therapeutic technology that speeds up your healing and improves results. Treatments feel good and are safe, painless, fast and are customized for each situation.

Laser Therapy utilizes your body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. Despite fast treatment times, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up 24 hours after treatment.

The Light Force laser system has been clinically proven to relieve pain associated with injuries, accidents or surgeries. For those suffering from chronic pain, drug-free laser therapy offers relief without invasive surgery or addictive medications. If you are experiencing pain in any part of your body, and live or work in Pocatello, Chubbuck, or a surrounding area, laser therapy may be right for you. Let us get you started on your pain relief journey.
