ALICIA CLOUSTON, MPT, LAT, ATC
Alicia Clouston first brought her expertise to Gillette Physical Therapy for the clinic’s family-oriented atmosphere and excellent services. She is also proud of the many skillful therapists on staff, their ability to treat a wide variety of conditions, and their focus on community outreach. Alicia herself is trained to assist a broad scope of patients, as she has worked in numerous areas of physical therapy ranging from athletic training, post-surgical rehabilitation, pediatrics, orthopedics, women’s health, concussions, and countless others. While Clouston first received her Bachelor’s and Master’s from the University of Mary, she has since gone through multiple trainings and earned a large sum of additional certifications. Some of these include dry needling, IASTM level 2 certification, and myofascial decompression certification.
Few other physical therapists match the level of mastery demonstrated by Alicia Clouston. Aside from her extensive educational experiences, Clouston is a successful therapist due to her compassionate character and ability to be personable with patients. She is constantly aware of individual’s needs and gears their rehab towards that as she also strives to remain both positive and motivational. Alicia always tries to see the good in every situation and loves that through her job she can promote patient progress and assist her diverse set of patients in achieving their goals.
While Alicia appreciates the family-oriented aspect of Gillette Physical Therapy, she also remains family-oriented in her personal life. Clouston is the mother of two highly active boys. Both are involved in athletics, allowing Alicia and her husband to do something they love most: cheer on their sons as they compete. Oftentimes, Alicia’s children’s activities allow her opportunities to be present and cooperative in the community. She assists with coverage of both local junior football and local soccer tournaments as well as provides sports medicine coverage to the local Gillette Wild Junior Hockey team. When she is not trying to keep up with her children or partaking in community events, Clouston is a big fan of hiking and participating in one of her favorite hobbies, running.
