Sports Physical Therapy

    Home / Our Services / Sports Physical Therapy

We have experienced it, we have treated it and we have personally returned to the trail, ice, snow, field, court and the game. Come experience what direct one on one physical therapy is all about. Don’t settle for being treated by 2-3 different people (only one being a physical therapist). You, your spouse, your son or daughter, deserve the quality of orthopedic manual physical therapy and specific exercises to rehab your injury, not just some semi-self directed gym program you perform at your PT appointment. Return to your sport quicker with direct one on one care at Alaska Physical Therapy Specialists, it is not how long you are in the clinic to achieve your goals, it is the quality of time spent in order to get you back to your passion. You only see a physical therapist your entire appointment at Alaska Physical Therapy Specialists. We listen, we adjust, we perform so you can perform. Are you unable to return to the ski slopes, soccer field, hockey rink, dance floor, basketball court or the trail to run or ski? Tired of sitting on the bench or hearing about the epic day on the trail??!!
