Morphose Exercise Systems disrupts physical therapy
John Fiore is one of the first people I met when I moved to Missoula. His business, Sapphire Physical Therapy, has helped many of us overcome injury, launched many of the great PT’s in this town and sponsored many of the awesome events that bring us together. Sapphire was also one of the earliest supporters of A New Angle and we are eternally grateful.

Healthy Sport (Part 1) - What's the problem?
In part 1 of our three-part mini-series on healthy sport, Justin speaks with Jessie Thomas, Leah Versteegen and Anya Gue. This wide-ranging conversation considers our culture's strained relationship with athletics. Though a force for good in many of our lives, the pressure to perform in sport can lead to over-training, premature specialization and an unhealthy degree of self-identification with athletics. We consider the role of coaches, parents, and clinicians in this delicate balance and identify markers of dysfunction to look for in ourselves and others.
