Backcountry Therapeutics, LLC was started in Feb 2012 with offering Occupational Therapy to kids in their homes and in a small rented clinic/pool. We have since grown to have 13 therapists between Occupational and Physical therapy and our own 9,600sq foot facility solely for pediatrics. We started with the goal to be able to offer the kids of the Mat-Su valley, with varying diagnosis, a variety of treatment environments so that every child has the best possible chance at achieving their goals and independence.
We offer Occupational and Physical therapy in the community to make your child’s sessions more realistic and functional to the real life experiences they will encounter. Community sessions include but are not limited to, parks, shopping stores, restaurants, library, etc. We understand that therapy doesn’t stop when you leave the clinic; so, we offer many opportunities to focus on real life experiences and functional life skills in their communities.
We offer Pediatric Occupational and Physical aquatic therapy in a 24 ft round saline pool. The pool is heated to 93 degrees year round. At 4.5 feet deep it offers a safe and fun environment for kids to grow and develop skills.
We offer Equine- Assisted Occupational and Physical therapy year around. Your child can work on functional life skills while interacting with horses on a daily basis. Heated barn for the winter, and outdoor trail walks through the Alaskan woods in the summers. Our equine program addresses, but is not limited to, motor development, strength, coordination, confidence, sensory exploration, emotional and self regulation coping skills, overall processing, etc.
We offer Occupational and Physical therapy to clients and their families in their home when recommended and when travel appointments are available on our schedule.
We offer Occupational and Physical Therapy via multiple virtual platforms for families with immune concerns, transportation concerns, and who just do not live close enough to a clinic to receive in person therapy. We understand many families live outside of towns with services and want to make sure all children have access to wonderful therapists.
We’ll handle your child with care!
