Sitka Physical Therapy

We specialize in orthopedic and sports physical therapy, with emphasis on the athlete and return-to-play, as well as post-operative care following orthopedic surgery. Our certified physical therapists are volunteers in the athletic community. They often know the level of function for each athlete prior to injury and understand what is needed to return them to their sport or activity safely.
