Meet Dr. Jodi Knable

Dr. Jodi Knable has lived in Great Falls most of her life. She studied biology at MSU Tech, The University of Great Falls and Portland State University for a Bachelor’s degree. Then she attended Loma Linda University and graduated with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2006. She is also the mother of two sassy teenage girls.

Dr. Knable specializes in visceral and neural manipulation, which are manual therapy techniques that use a light touch to help encourage normal mobility when physiologic motion has been impaired. Basically, it is just finding tension and releasing it with patience and a light touch. Once we find the cause of the tension and release it many people experience significant relief. Dr. Knable believes she was given this gift from God and wants to use it to help others whenever she can. Her version of physical therapy is definitely not typical of traditional physical therapy. Her favorite patients are the ones who have been told there is nothing more that can be done for them. She treats all ages from newborns to 90-plus-year-olds.

Dr. Knable encourages patients to pursue lifestyle changes along with the work they do at their appointments. Those changes may include modifying their diet and changing their thoughts and habits. She has seen that patients recover faster when they address the physical, mental, and spiritual all at the same time. For that reason, she also encourages patients to meet with counselors, fitness instructors, massage therapists, and medical doctors along with everyone’s favorite chiropractor, Dr Stilson.

Dr. Knable’s overall goal is to educate her patients so that they can better take care of themselves. She pursues her own healing through an active faith life, chiropractic care, visiting her counselor, and receiving bodywork from several other talented practitioners. She enjoys many outdoor activities and drags her children along with her for the ride with varying amounts of reluctance on their part.
