Virtual Wellness

Physical Therapy in Wasilla, Alaska

Stay healthy during this time of uncertainty. Our therapists will conduct a virtual consult for clients that are remaining at home. We will use both VIDEO and AUDIO so that we can have a two way communication during these physical therapy visits.

Northern Edge Physical Therapy has a diverse client base with many clients in a compromised health status or living remotely.  There may be extreme situations (i.e.  national disasters/crisis) which may prevent some clients from accessing clinical care.
