Dedication and Professionalism
Valerie A. Phelps, PT, ScD, COMT, FAOMPT, started advanced physical therapy in August of 2000 with four other employees and a vision to work with chronic pain clients. The efforts of these few, dedicated caregivers transformed patient care and the lives of those who thought expert care could not be found in Alaska. By 2011 doors opened to three more clinics. Each successive clinic uses the same treatment paradigms, and follows the same mission that made our initial contact so successful: Service the communities in your life by being the best.
We believe that our system of research supported musculoskeletal evaluation and treatment is the ticket to lasting wellness. This philosophy has directed the finest therapists and administrative professionals to pursue their careers with us and in Alaska. Our comprehensive menu of specialized therapeutic services is reflective of the diverse individuals who have decided there is nowhere better to work than at advanced physical therapy.
APT is owned by the employees, so the money generated in Alaska, stays in Alaska. Ask any one of the employees and you will hear stories about the organizations they support and the ways they contribute to their community. advanced physical therapy has chosen to partner with their employees and support their efforts through corporate contributions. You will find employees lecturing and offering advice to the community at trade shows, in the classrooms and out on the trails.
