History & Community Involvement


North Idaho Physical Therapy has a proud past and an exciting future within the medical community of north Idaho. Founded in 1968 by the county's first physical therapist, Lee Shellman, PT, the business quickly became a trusted partner in returning the residents of north Idaho back to meaningful activities in a caring and cost effective manner. Whether it was returning from a sports injury, getting back to work as a logger or miner, or simply getting back to normal activities of daily living, Lee Shellman, PT was known as the person to help you heal.

Although we now have multiple locations we have continued with the same small town caring that is core to our success. At North Idaho Physical Therapy we combine highly trained practitioners, state-of-the-art facilities, and sincere caring to provide you with the best rehabilitation experience available.
