Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Chugach Physical Therapy provides rehabilitation for all orthopedic injuries. We have extensive experience in the area of sports medicine including the treatment of elite and recreational athletes. We tailor our sports medicine rehabilitation to fit the goals of the individual athlete.
Sport Specific Fitness Assessments Whether your sport is golf, running, or even big game hunting, we can assess your strengths and potential weaknesses, and then develop a plan to help insure that you’re prepared for the upcoming season.
Aquatic Therapy Our hydrotherapeutic pool is approximately 92° F. This warm water is especially helpful in treating our clients who have difficulty with land exercises, are weight bearing sensitive, or who have multiple diagnoses. The buoyancy of the water helps decrease the effects of gravity, while creating resistance for strengthening. We also have a physical therapist certified in Watsu and Water Dance treatments.
Lymphedema Management This condition often occurs in individuals who have had lymph nodes removed surgically or have been treated with radiation therapy. Comprehensive lymphedema treatment is provided by a physical therapist trained in manual lymphatic drainage, exercise, compression therapy, and patient precautions & prevention education.
Neurological Rehabilitation Chugach PT offers comprehensive outpatient neurological rehabilitation to patients with a variety of diagnoses including stroke, traumatic brain injury, and spinal cord injury.
Women's Health We provide treatment for a wide range of women’s health issues; including pregnancy related back pain, pelvic floor dysfunction, and pelvic pain. Treatment of these conditions centers on patient education, and muscle retraining.
Urinary Incontinence Both men and women can experience urinary incontinence, a treatable condition involving leakage of urine, or “accidents”. We have a specially trained physical therapist that treats both stress and urge incontinence.
Osteoporosis Treatment & Prevention We can perform a risk assessment for those with mild, moderate or severe Osteoporosis and design a home exercise program to decrease the risk of falls and increase muscle strength and retard bone loss.
Vestibular Rehabilitation We provide specialized rehabilitation for vestibular pathologies, such as positional vertigo, head trauma, post neuronitis, ototoxicity, and asymmetric vestibulopathy. Therapy aims to improve functional abilities to facilitate independence and decrease risk of falls.
Functional Capacity Evaluation The functional capacity evaluation process is an examination that documents the patient’s current ability to perform work based on physical, medical, behavioral, and ergonomic perspectives. We utilize a system that is based on clinical research with validity measures.
Ergonomics/Work Site Assessment We can provide a comprehensive work site assessment for those individuals with home or work stations that contribute to their neck, back, upper extremity or lower extremity pain or dysfunction.
Industrial Rehabilitation Getting people back to work is one of our main goals at Chugach Physical Therapy. We work closely with employers, insurers and injured employees to provide return to work programs individually tailored to meet the employee’s specific rehabilitation needs.
