Hello, my name is Paige McNerthney. I am a physical therapist and owner of AlignMend Physical Therapy. AlignMend is a solo-practitioner clinic located in Seattle, WA. I have been a physical therapist for over 20 years and have a vast knowledge of full-body orthopedics, manual therapy, sports medicine, fitness, education, exercise, kinesio tape, ergonomics, postural assessments and Postural Restoration®. I consult and focus on full body recovery and movement both in-person at my clinic and online.
My visits are one-on-one for 60-minutes and provide you a customized plan to decrease pain, manage pressure, calm the system, control movement and maximize your body's potential. If you do not control your posture and movement, it will control you.
Once discharged you will leave with the knowledge and education to continue to improve your functional progress, recovery, and your body's ability to rest. This is your body's only way to help to decrease risk for future injury. If your body cannot rest, it will not recover.
If you are an individual struggling with a new program, a weekend warrior, a fitness enthusiast, suffering from a chronic condition, or just simply needs some guidance in how to perform and feel better, schedule a strategy session to discuss and determine your next course of action to your journey of success.
AlignMend Physical Therapy is a private practice that focuses on education, manual therapy, and primarily on the foundations and scientific practices of training through the Postural Restoration Institute®. This scientific treatment approach is innovative and focuses on a multi-system approach to movement. This multi-system approach involves inhibition and facilitation of the muscular chains that commonly contribute to postural patterns of dysfunction and pain. In combination with addressing other body systems that impede healing such as automimics, lymphatics, cardiovascular, and endocrine systems. These systems, along with the musculoskeletal system, must ALL work together in order for your body to heal. These symptoms, pain or unrest can come from a variety of circumstances including motor vehicle accidents, work injuries, overuse injuries, running injuries, stress, lack of sleep, chronic pain conditions or just normal life circumstances.
I have worked hard to learn about the power of breath and the importance of the integration of multiple systems. These bodily systems are vital and often overlooked, when it comes to normal rehab and the important role these systems play in the body’s physical and mental recovery. Training breath to drive movement and your body's mass for orthopedic positioning provides pain-free movement, mechanics, and performance. While this may sound complicated, when it comes to a multi-system management approach, your recovery can be relatively simple and extremely effective. I am excited to offer this approach in my practice. I have learned, over the course of my years as a physical therapist, mother and wife that sometimes less is often more - making some small changes can have BIG effects.
