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.
Education & Training Our therapists can arrange to instruct groups in any of the areas discussed on this website as well as additional topics (such as):
Back Safety & Ergonomics
Cumulative Trauma Prevention
Prevention and Treatment of Aches Sprains and Strains
Ergonomics/Worksite Assessment We can provide a comprehensive worksite assessment for those individuals with home or work stations that contribute to their neck, back, upper extremity, or lower extremity pain or dysfunction.
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 high validity measures.
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.
