Have you been experiencing nagging and lingering aches and pains that limit your ability to fully perform your favorite or daily activities such as riding, roping, lifting, or driving? Have you contemplated getting steroid injections or surgery to help alleviate your symptoms? Have you had steroid injections or surgery to “fix” the issue only to have the symptoms and impairments return? These interventions are appropriate at times, however they can sometimes only mask the true reason for our symptoms and impairments which can be incomplete mechanics, mobility restrictions, muscle imbalances, and strength deficits.
At Unbound, we do physical therapy differently. There is minimal equipment required for your rehabilitation process to obtain extraordinary results. We do not use your valuable time and hard earned money for you to rest with heating pads or ice packs. We feel that being able to spend one hour, one-on-one, with your Doctor of Physical Therapy, allows us to fully understand your condition, needs and goals. Utilizing appropriate and specific evidence-based treatments and cutting-edge techniques we streamline your progress and recovery.
It’s our belief that physical therapy should include a thorough movement assessment, skilled hands on manual therapy interventions, and one-on-one education in corrective exercises and activity modifications allowing for you to get back to the activities you love without pain or restriction.
It is crucial to play an active role while healing from an injury and managing your pain. Avoiding activity and complete rest is NOT the answer to long-term healing. It is our goal to keep you active and participating in the activity or sport you love throughout the rehabilitation process, help you break your chains of pain and impairment, allowing you to become UNBOUND and return to the activities you love.
Jacob Retzer grew up in the mountains outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico. He received a bachelors degree in Biology and Psychology from the University of New Mexico and a doctorate in Physical Therapy at the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota.
After completing his doctoral education, he and his family moved to rural Montana, where he was able to practice and hone my skills as a therapist working with individuals across the lifespan. He worked with outdoor athletes (hunters, hikers, runners, and snowmobilers), weekend warriors, crossfitters, gymnasts, high school athletes, and those who wanted to get back to daily activities without restriction.
After four years they moved back to Bismarck, where he opened his clinic to provide individuals with the highest level of one on one care helping them to take control of their health. His goal is to help patients alleviate pain, increase performance and assist them in becoming the best version of themselves through increased knowledge in various areas of patient care including strength and conditioning, manual therapy, dry needling and pain science.
When not in the clinic, he enjoys being outdoors with his wife and two children camping, hiking, and hunting. He also enjoys participating in Crossfit and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
