Range Physical Therapy & Wellness opened on April 1st, 2022 after a change of clinic name and ownership between two hardworking Missoulians. The clinic has been in operation since 2018.
During the initial planning of our clinic, we were looking at a map of Montana in which the the word “Range” popped out at us. Our clinic’s name, slogan, and logo were created with both Montana and physical therapy and wellness related meanings: bison range, mountain range,
range of motion, strength, function, abilities… everything!
We uphold our slogan to, “Expand your range. Enhance your life.”
We cannot wait to be your local physical therapy + wellness clinic of choice in Missoula, MT!
Range PT is owned by a fifth-generation Missoula, MT business owner and founded on a passion to maximize our community's movement capabilities and health.
Kolin Hunton, DPT
I am a fourth-generation Montanan and Missoula native, and am honored to serve the people in the community that raised me. I am a husband and father of two children, Owen and Holland. I graduated from the University of Montana with a Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science in 2016 and worked as a physical therapy aide for about three years before returning to UM to earn my Doctorate of Physical Therapy. My passion for physical therapy stems from my fascination with the human body and how the optimization of movement and function can lead to improved health outcomes and well-being. I enjoy working with patients of all ages, and have had a wide breadth of exposure during my time in PT school. These experiences included outpatient orthopedics, pre-surgical and post-surgical rehabilitation, return to sport, neurological rehabilitation, chronic pain, concussion, and vestibular rehabilitation. I truly enjoy working in all of these areas of physical therapy and the unique challenges that accompany each condition. Outside of work I enjoy playing basketball, hunting, fishing, mountain biking, camping, and hiking with my family. I enjoy working with the people of Missoula to optimize their health and wellness and get them back to expanding their range.
Maddie Small, DPT
I am a fifth-generation Missoulian and am thankful to be expanding our community's health and wellness in the town I grew up in. I have known I’ve wanted to be a physical therapist since middle school, so I am grateful to be in this position. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Human Performance, Exercise Science from the University of Montana in 2016 and earned my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania in May 2019. Through personal and professional experiences, my clinical interests and specialties include general orthopedic, oncology, neurological (especially Multiple Sclerosis), as well as outdoor recreation and sports rehabilitation. Some of my extended experiences include a clinical rotation at the Huntsman Cancer Hospital, certification in Functional Dry Needling in 2021, and training in Pilates. I enjoy anything outdoors, staying active, and spending time with my family, friends, and dog, Tikka. I am passionate about how movement enhances one’s quality of life.

Physical Therapist Aide
I am currently working towards a degree in Human Biology at the University of Montana. I’m so grateful to be a part of Range Physical Therapy. Maddie and the team have created such a welcoming, improvement-focused environment for patients, employees, and the community. Apart from work and school, I spend my time exploring Montana, training Jiu Jitsu, and cooking.
Physical Therapist Aide
I’m originally from Union, Illinois and after graduation, I studied K-12 Physical and Health Education at Northern Illinois University. I graduated with a B.S. in 2012. Curiosity and a desire to leave Illinois brought me to Gardiner, MT doing summer seasonal work on my breaks from college. Working on the edge of Yellowstone National Park led me to move to Missoula in January of 2013. I then became a part time teacher, coached basketball and found a position at The Runner’s Edge. This all ultimately helped me discover my passion for endurance sports. I started learning more about physical rehabilitation after what seemed like a small foot injury actually ended up sidelining me for a year. Going forward, I really enjoyed physical therapy for myself and understanding the importance of a consistent, slow recovery process. I enjoy being a part of the Range Physical Therapy team because I want to continue to help people stay or become healthy and active.
Physical Therapist Aide
I’m from Rapid City, South Dakota, but I’ve decided to call Missoula home! I am a recent graduate of University of Montana with a degree in Health and Human Performance. During my time at UM, I was involved in various groups on campus, but spent most of my time golfing for the Griz and working out. When I’m not on the golf course or in the gym, I enjoy fly fishing, skiing, camping, hiking with my pups, traveling, and reading. I plan to begin Physical Therapy school in 2024, but in the mean time, I’m learning as much as I can from Maddie and Kolin while building relationships with the amazing patients at Range Physical Therapy! My time at Range has been an absolute blast and I hope to continue helping to expand + enhance this amazing business well into the future.
