Traditional Physical Therapy

Traditional Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy: Our physical therapy is designed to reduce pain and discomfort in your feet due to arthritis, sprains, fractures, Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis.

This therapy has a broad category of treatment options to help improve your lower limb pain and discomfort that affects your movement and limb function. It can range from treatment modalities to improve flexibility and range of motion to some non-invasive options like ultrasound & electronic stimulation. The type and extent of physical therapy depends entirely on your condition and needs.

Ultrasound Therapy: Ultrasound is often used to provide deep heating to soft tissue structures in the body. Deep heating tendons, muscles or ligaments increase circulation to help the healing process and is also used to help decrease pain.

Electronic Stimulation: Electronic Stimulation uses an electrical current to cause a single muscle or a group of muscles to contract. This contraction increases muscle strength and promotes blood supply to the affected area to assist in the body’s natural healing process. 

Whether you are suffering with general chronic foot pain or an athlete requiring more aggressive conditioning, our physical therapy services can help. Call us today at (907)260-3668 or contact us by email at akfootdoc@alaska.net
