Fischer Physical Therapy was created in 2004 with Matthew Fischer’s vision of providing exceptional physical therapy service in a supportive setting. Since opening in the Power Block Building, the size of both staff and space has doubled to better meet the needs of the Helena community.
Introductions are now in order for the amazing staff assembled at Fischer Physical Therapy. We thank God for the unique synergy of gifts in this “second family” which comprise the heart of our service.
Matthew S. Fischer, MSPT
Founder, Owner, Physical Therapist
Matthew S. Fischer, MSPT, received his Master of Science in Physical Therapy in 2000 from the University of Montana. He has practiced in Helena since that time in outpatient orthopedic settings exclusively. In 2004, Matthew set out to establish Fischer Physical Therapy with emphasis on quality care and superior results. Matthew’s approach is biased toward specialized hands-on techniques, while progressing each client toward independent management with gentle exercise. In 2005, Matthew became 1 of 50 therapists in the U.S. to complete advanced training in Primal Reflex Release Technique.
Shortly thereafter, he qualified to become an instructor for this approach to healing and has taught courses throughout the Northwest. Matthew emphasizes a whole body approach to healing that integrates many types of therapeutic interventions. He continues to develop many innovative applications using both manual techniques and exercise. Chronic pain related to the spine and muscles/joints are his greatest interest. Matthew finds great fulfillment with his faith, family, and an active lifestyle on a small farm outside Helena and the great outdoors.
Bobbie Bliss Rasmann, MSPT
Bobbie Bliss Rasmann, MSPT, received her Master of Science in Physical Therapy in 1993 from Texas Woman’s University. Bobbie practiced in the Phoenix metro area for 13 years before moving to Helena with her husband and two children in 2006, at which time she joined Fischer Physical Therapy.
Most of her clinical focus has been in outpatient orthopedics, emphasizing hands-on treatments which help restore normal neuromotor function and structure mobility. Proactive patient involvement in the therapy plan of care is strongly encouraged to optimize positive outcomes. Education is also an important component of her approach to promote long term success and prevention of re-injury after the rehabilitation treatment process.
Areas of specialty include shoulder rehabilitation, as well as treating cervical (neck) pain, chronic headaches and SIJ/hip dysfunction. Bobbie also has extensive experience in treating patients following shoulder, knee, hip or ankle surgery as well as individuals with recreational or sports injuries that do not require surgical intervention. She received her certification in Integrative Dry Needling in November 2017. Bobbie periodically hosts workshops to educate the public on Rotator Cuff Injuries and Shoulder Pain.
When not caring for patients in the clinic, Bobbie enjoys spending time with her family doing activities such as hiking, snowshoeing, camping, fishing, and visiting National Parks.
Owner, Billing, Support Staff
Kelly has been with the clinic since it’s infancy! She has been managing the accounting aspect of the clinic and now is handling billing and patient statements. She enjoys being apart of her husbands mission and looks forward to their partnership in life.
Matthew and Kelly have 5 children and when she is not at Fischer Physical Therapy, she is running her children all over town. When she gets a chance, she does enjoy gardening and time outdoors in the sun!
