Sitka Physical Therapy, LLC was founded in 1999 and remains Sitka’s only out-patient PT private practice offering a comprehensive menu of rehabilitative services.

Our team of experienced professionals is skilled in differential diagnosis, which is a process of detailed evaluation aimed at identifying the source of your symptoms. We direct treatment at the underlying cause of your pain while actively addressing your symptoms; this allows for more complete healing and prevention of pain reoccurrence.

We take a proactive approach to rehabilitation and have furnished our facility with the most up-to-date exercise equipment to help you on your path to recovery and optimal function (AED equipped).


Our patients enjoy personalized one-on-one treatment exclusively under the care of a licensed Physical Therapist following a thorough initial evaluation.

Public Testimony

"Sitka Physical Therapy has been instrumental in the success of hundreds of people's fitness goals at the Hames Center. From leading introductory courses in safe and effective ways to use the gym equipment to specialized workshops such as runner's clinics and aerobic & strength training, their professional physical therapists have provided guidance that has inspired, motivated, and expanded a lot of people's lives."

-Cindy Edwards; Past Hames Center Director


“Over the course of six year serving as Athletic Director at Sitka High School I was always comforted by the fact that I knew both my athletes and our visiting athletes had at their disposal an incredible, professional team of athletic trainers and physical therapists from Sitka Physical Therapy. Eric, Alicia, Paul and their entire team were reliably present week in and week out both in case of injury at our athletic competitions, and as volunteer help for our injured athletes that needed attention during practice time. Sitka High School and it's students continue to be indebted to Sitka Physical Therapy for their concern and professional expertise in keeping athletes healthy.”

-Mike Vieira; Sitka High School, Past Athletic Director 2007-2013


“Sitka PT has been a great asset to the Sitka Sound Slayers Roller Derby league. They have volunteered to cover all of our games to assess injuries and advise players on proper injury recovery and prevention. They are always professional, knowledgeable and flexible when it comes to the care of our league.”

-Laura Middleton ; Sitka Sound Slayers Roller Derby

“Sitka Physical Therapy has been a valuable asset to the Sitka High School basketball program. Volunteering their personal time, staff members are present at every varsity basketball game, providing athletes with excellent sports medical coverage. Trained therapists have shared their knowledge with players and coaches on injury prevention, as well as post injury recovery. Once a week, throughout the season, they attend practice and are available for players needing assistance with current injuries. Sitka Physical Therapy owners and staff members are a blessing to our community. They have repeatedly shown their concern and care for the wellbeing of our student-athletes.”

-Rich Krupa; Sitka High School Girls Basketball assistant Coach and Athletic Director


The Physical Therapists at Sitka Physical Therapy go above & beyond to share their  expertise with our community. As a course programmer at our community fitness facility,  these physical therapists have served nearly 150 community members getting started  with fitness routines & learning to use fitness equipment properly to prevent injury.  Because of their generosity, we have a healthy, supported, and empowered  membership and community members have been inspired to make significant healthy  lifestyle changes."

-Caitlin Blaisdell; Volunteer at Hames Center


“Sitka Physical Therapy has been a wonderful community partner to Sitka High School.  Their staff  are highly competent professionals who embody the spirit of community  service.  Sitka High School activites would be greatly diminished without them.”

-Scott McAdams; Sitka High School, Past Athletic Director 2013-14
