About Light Physical Therapy
of Anchorage, Alaska
Julie Light, DPT
As the owner and sole practitioner of Light PT, my journey began with hands-on experience as a registered nurse in busy hospitals before attending Washington University in St. Louis, one of the top physical therapy schools in the country. During my nursing years, a vision formed: a practice where patients would receive personalized, concierge-style rehab.
That vision is now a reality at Light Physical Therapy. I specialize in treating back, hip, knee, foot, and ankle pain across all ages, from infants to adults.
Let me explain what makes Light Physical Therapy unique. Unlike other practices, I don’t rely on modalities like heat, ice, massage, or electrical stimulation. If you’ve tried these without lasting results, you are in the right place.
My approach focuses on fixing movement patterns. Every patient gets a clear diagnosis of movement issues. From day one, you’ll learn which movements are causing pain and how to correct them. By addressing movement patterns and postures, you’ll align your joints better, reduce pain, and enhance your daily function.
I’m here to give you the tools to improve your alignment and posture on your own. This means fewer visits and often quicker pain relief—even after the first session.
When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband and baby girl, training for half ironmans and figure skating.
I’m excited to meet you and support your journey toward your movement goals at Light PT. Let’s work together to make a difference in your life.
Julie has worked as a physical therapist in a busy hospital outpatient setting, private practice and a cash pay concierge physical therapy clinic prior to setting up her own practice. During her time in graduate school she participated in a clinical rotation at one of the only pediatric bridge hospitals in the United States, Ranken Jordan, where she was able to work side by side with an orthotist/prosthetist. She worked together with them on how to best help each individual child gain range of motion and strength to improve their ability to walk. This has inspired the collaborative approach between Alchemy and Light Physical Therapy to better help individuals achieve their optimal potential. Julie has an office right next to Alchemy Orthotics and Prosthetics which allows for quick adjustments to prosthetics. It also allows for a collaborative approach to receiving optimal bracing for children with neurological diseases as well as a one stop shop for children who need both a helmet and physical therapy for torticollis.
