Complex Pain Recovery

Physical Therapy in Wasilla, Alaska

The daily presence of pain can lead to a steady decline of physical fitness, emotional health and social relationships. In fact, persistent pain increases the risk for depression by nearly four times. Pain is an illness in its own right. The underlying conditions and the pain must be treated simultaneously to achieve improvement. The challenge with chronic pain is developing a concise inventory of all injured or impaired structures and determining an effective treatment program that won’t aggravate symptoms. Lack of specific diagnosis and treatment may be the reason some chronic pain problems tend to get worse with treatment. Northern Edge Physical Therapy offers complex pain recovery in Wasilla to help diagnose and treat these chronic pain problems.

















Our concept for complex pain recovery is based upon recent scientific evidence which shows there are relevant physical and biological processes that lead to significant imbalances and persistent pain. Our 15 years of clinical experience in treating pain-related disorders, has helped us realize that exercise and manual therapy are effective tools to address the physical limits and barriers that delay recovery from painful conditions. To put it simply, pain-relief should not lead to more pain.

Our exercise programs are designed to reduce pain and allow clients to selectively activate muscles responsible for controlling movement. This is one of the primary roles of Neurac therapy using the Redcord system to retrain balance and stability through multilevel suspension and selective resistance to activate specific muscle chains without causing pain. Northern Edge Physical Therapy is the only clinic in Alaska that offers this revolutionary treatment to clients suffering from complex and chronic pain.

Northern Edge Physical Therapy understands the challenges faced by those suffering from chronic pain. Our examination by our therapists is designed to be specific allowing us to identify structures which are either causing pain or delaying healing. Our treatment is directed towards the pain and the pain-related conditions to guide patients along a path to complete and natural healing. We offer specialized programs such as; Dry Needling, Redcord, AlterG Anti-gravity Treadmill, Low-level Laser Therapy, and Massage Therapy. These programs are the most effective approach to achieve pain-relief and enhance performance for complex pain recovery in Wasilla.
