Physical therapist Joy Backstrum, PT, PRC works with a patient.
The aim of our practice is to promote healing, restore normal function and improve quality of life for active Alaskans. It is our goal to empower each patient to be healthy and perform at their optimum level.

We are a locally owned physical therapy practice founded in 2000 with a vision to provide personalized, high quality PT to our community. Our specialized clinicians have over 50 years of combined physical therapy experience in orthopedics and pelvic health.

The Physical Therapy Place is the first, and only, certified Postural Restoration™ clinic in Alaska. Postural Restoration™ (PRI), is a physical therapy approach which evaluates and treats your body to improve the way you sit, stand and move.

A comprehensive evaluation allows us to identify the cause of pain or loss of function and to correct faulty movement patterns more quickly with fewer treatments. This means you are back to life more quickly with less cost to you.

Our goal is to empower every client with the knowledge and tools to help them achieve their highest level of wellness and performance. At The Physical Therapy Place you are always treated one-on-one by an experienced, licensed physical therapist.
