At Runners’ Edge Alaska, it is our mission to empower active Alaskans of all ages to return to what they love… for life!

From recreational weekend warriors to elite athletes, even Olympians! Our PTs are very active in the community, covering sporting events, and hosting workshops and private training groups for teams. Our team has covered many competitions- from local cross-country running, skiing, track, basketball, national championships, world-level competitions, and the Olympics! We work very closely with local sports teams and the US National Ski Team. 

While we’re known as a leading sports physical therapy clinic in Anchorage, Alaska, we strive to be more than, “just a PT clinic.” Alongside musculoskeletal, orthopedic, and sports-specific rehabilitation, we offer a comprehensive suite of sports performance services. This includes everything from strength and conditioning programs to classes, running gait analysis, strength and power testing, and more! We’re committed to staying ahead of the curve in PT education and leveraging cutting-edge technology such as Blood Flow Restriction training, Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, VALD force plates, and diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound. Our team works closely together to ensure everyone achieves success, both in and out of the clinic. We live by the motto, “work hard, play hard,” because we are athletes and active Alaskans ourselves!

Hear From Our Thriving Community

5/5
“Runners’ Edge Alaska is outstanding! Our 15-year-old daughter tore her ACL in March 2020 and Zuzana has been there every step of the way. For every pre-op and post-op PT session, Zuzana had a detailed exercise plan that was structured personally for our daughter to attain the greatest benefit for each specific day of training."

“I competed in a couple of my favorite local ski races, although fitness was an issue. I experienced lapses in proprioception caused by my knee replacement – I would plant a pole on a ski and suddenly fall. About 15 months after the replacement, I begin to see Dr. Zuzana Rogers to receive treatment for lingering body imbalances, proprioception issues, and muscle pains in my left knee area."
