Services

*Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a "hands on" approach both to assess and treat restrictions in joint mobility and soft tissue extensibility. Manual therapy can also identify loose joints that require iWeights at Juneau Physical Therapymproved control through muscle stabilization exercises.

*Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercises are specific exercises targeted to improve your performance, strength, posture, balance, range of motion and function.  These exercises are carefully prescribed and progressed to better challenge you during your healing process.  This is a key component for your recovery and this exercise progression provides you with insight and education into how your body functions. 

*Core Stabilization Exercise

Core stabilization is the balanced development of the deep and superficial muscles that support and protect the spine, pelvis and shoulder girdle.  With core stability exercise strengthening, we are better able to control movement, transfer energy and generate powerful movements of the trunk and extWeights at Juneau Physical Therapyremities.  This restores proper motion and reduces pain.

*Hand Therapy

This specialized treatment evaluates and treats hand, wrist, and elbow complaints or conditions. Patients may receive both non-operative and post-operative care. Treatments may also include orthotic splinting for support. For more information on Hand Therapy, please click here.

*Foot Orthotics

Orthotics are inserts that are designed to treat poor function of the foot such as plantar fasciitis, Bunion pain, Achilles tendonitis. At times orthotics are also needed to correct knee, hip and low back pain.   Our therapists are trained to examine the foot and leg to determine the appropriate type of insert to fit your need. 

*Treatment of Balance Disorders

Balance is the result of several body systems working together; the eyes (visual system), the ears (vestibular system) and the body's sense of where it is in space (proprioception).  We treat a variety of balance disorders  including BPPV and acute labyrinthiits. We also provide balance and proprioceptive retraining for other chronic diseases, such as Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.

* Graston Fascial Release

Graston Technique© is an instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables therapists to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

* Women's Health/Pregnancy Care & Pelvic Floor Rehab

Women's health and pelvic floor rehab employs a non-surgical approach for restoring dysfunctions in the pelvic and low back that contribute to bowel/bladder concerns, sexual health and pelvic/hip/low back pain.
