Dr. Katie Snow and Trevor Mills opened Snow Sport and Spine in 2007 after realizing the complexities of physical therapy care delivery in today’s world could be simplified. They were frustrated with unnecessary barriers to care affecting the patient-therapist relationship. Insurance companies and healthcare industry managers had more influence over patient care and outcomes. With Katie and Trevor’s experience and expertise, Snow Sport and Spine is a clinic that does things differently. Expect a personal patient-centered approach and the best practices in physical therapy care. They will take the time to listen, evaluate and create a plan together with you and your other providers.
Now over 15 years later, with the addition of Felicia Files, PTA, and Christina Kelly, PT to the team, they are still doing just that, and continuing to integrate state-of-the-art techniques into the rehabilitation of our patients so they may return to the endeavors they love!
