“Over the course of six year serving as Athletic Director at Sitka High School I was always comforted by the fact that I knew both my athletes and our visiting athletes had at their disposal an incredible, professional team of athletic trainers and physical therapists from Sitka Physical Therapy. Eric, Alicia, Paul and their entire team were reliably present week in and week out both in case of injury at our athletic competitions, and as volunteer help for our injured athletes that needed attention during practice time. Sitka High School and it's students continue to be indebted to Sitka Physical Therapy for their concern and professional expertise in keeping athletes healthy.”

-Mike Vieira; Sitka High School, Athletic Director 2007-2013


“Sitka PT has been a great asset to the Sitka Sound Slayers Roller Derby league. They have volunteered to cover all of our games to assess injuries and advise players on proper injury recovery and prevention. They are always professional, knowledgeable and flexible when it comes to the care of our league.”

-Laura Middleton ; Sitka Sound Slayers Roller Derby

“Sitka Physical Therapy has been a valuable asset to the Sitka High School basketball program. Volunteering their personal time, staff members are present at every varsity basketball game, providing athletes with excellent sports medical coverage. Trained therapists have shared their knowledge with players and coaches on injury prevention, as well as post injury recovery. Once a week, throughout the season, they attend practice and are available for players needing assistance with current injuries. Sitka Physical Therapy owners and staff members are a blessing to our community. They have repeatedly shown their concern and care for the wellbeing of our student-athletes.”

-Rich Krupa; Sitka High School Girls Basketball assistant Coach
