Wellness and Prevention
Physical therapy is important to achieve pain relief and maximum restoration of range of motion and strength.
If you are in need of pain alleviation due to an injury that does not requires surgery, Inspire Physical Therapy can help you recover. Direct access allows patients to schedule an appointment without a doctor’s referral. We have numerous openings and will schedule an appointment at the earliest possible time for your highest quality care.
Patients seek treatment for all range of injuries from low back pain, wrist injuries, knee pain, ankle sprains, to hip injuries. Inspire’s staff is equipped to treat and help recover any injury.
Physical therapy will strengthen the muscle surrounding joints. Strengthening the muscles will decrease pain and increase joint stability. Often knee pain, back pain, and upper extremity injuries can be alleviated by physical therapy.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
We understand the aches and pains that come with motor vehicle accidents. The most common complaint from accidents is neck and low back pain caused by whiplash. Our therapists are well equipped to help you recover from your motor vehicle injuries.
Pain caused by whiplash injuries can be alleviated by a series of prescribed neck exercises in addition to manual therapy.
Some whiplash injuries heal within a couple of days, while others take what seems like eternity to heal. At Inspire, we will conduct a thorough examination of joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and neural response in order to properly treat you.
Whiplash injuries involve muscle spasms which can increase pain. A muscle spasm is the involuntary contraction of a muscle due to overstretching or overuse of the muscle. One side of your body may be more prone to these spasms. Physical therapy will help reduce muscle spasms and retrain your body to function properly.
We offer medical & therapeutic massage to all exiting, previous and new Inspire Physical Therapy clients billed to and reimbursed by medical insurance.
The ultimate goal for our Massage Therapy program is to combine Physical Therapy intervention with massage treatment to address soft tissue dysfunction, injury and chronic pain. Additionally, our Massage Therapy program will provide walk in or maintenance bodywork on a cash pay basis to clients who would like to pay out of pocket for this service.
Alaska is a Direct Access State
According to the American Physical Therapy Association, Alaska has no restrictions for a patient to seek physical therapy care independently. Direct Access means that patients have the ability to seek physical therapy care without the referral from a physician.
How is this beneficial?
Consider if you hurt your back over the weekend. Without direct access you would have to set up an appointment with your primary care provider, be evaluated, and given a referral to physical therapy. This process could take several days. With direct access you can be immediately seen by an Inspire physical therapist the next day starting your road to recovery.
