Foothills Physical Therapy


BNSC has an agreement in place with Foothills Physical Therapy (www.foothillspt.com), one of the Treasure Valley’s top rehabilitation and medical providers for athletes.  At Foothills you will see and be treated by a real physical therapist, not the support staff.  Foothills provides the Valley’s premier physical therapy support through one on one care.  Please follow the following protocol when injured:

Foothills Physical Therapy - BNSC Player Evaluation Process

  • Injury occurs & player/parent speak with team coach
    • Player/parent calls Foothills @ 343-4700
    • Notify Foothills staff that player is an athlete with the Boise Nationals and that an evaluation of an injury is needed
    • Staff will get the player in either the same day or no later than 24 hours to see a PT
    • The team coach will get in touch with our contact and notify him so that we can keep track of  the situation with   the player and ensure (s)he is seen
    • For the first visit, the player will need to have a parent along to sign paperwork
    • Foothills will provide a FREE evaluation and two subsequent visits, a $250-300 value.  Any visits beyond this will be billed visits.

We are very fortunate to have this arrangement with such a high caliber Physical Therapist group.  Thank you for your respect of their business and the demands of their business as they provide us with this free support.


Performance Enhancement/Risk Reduction Videos: 

We are proud to announce the performance enhancement/risk reduction videos are now available on our new website. The videos were made in collaboration with the Boise Nationals, Foothills Physical Therapy and St. Luke’s Sports Medicine. The intention of these videos is to enhance performance on the field and hopefully reduce the risk of injury to our players. The exercises used in these videos are evidence based, used by physical therapists, athletic trainers and sports medicine physicians, for lower extremity strengthening and improved body mechanics. The exercises are soccer specific and broken up into 4 categories as follows: Dynamic Warm Up, Strengthening, Plyometrics, and Agility. Our hope is that players will become familiar with these exercises and use them regularly, both during the season and off-season. Coaches are encouraged to use them regularly during training as well. These videos would not have been possible without the hard work and collaboration between all three organizations. Special Thanks to all that were involved!

If you have any questions regarding the videos or any other sports medicine inquiries, please feel free to contact:
