Dr. Lindsay Pelkowski was raised moving all over the country, born on the West coast and eventually settling on the East coast and growing up in Tampa, Florida. Her interest in physical therapy arose at a young age when she herself was in need of treatment due to multiple sports injuries. She went on to earn her Bachelorís Degree in Applied Physiology and Kinesiology, with a specialization in Exercise Science from the University of Florida in 2014. After graduating, Lindsay immediately moved across the country to attend the University of Utah in Salt Lake City and graduated with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2017.
Following graduation, Lindsay decided to continue to embrace her vagabond upbringing and became a traveling physical therapist. She began working in a variety of different practice settings in different states, ultimately bringing her to Juneau in 2018. This friendly and beautiful town won her over and she decided to settle down and join the welcoming community.
Lindsay is a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist with a special interest in vestibular rehabilitation. She also is a certified running gait analyst and has enjoyed helping many Juneau runners, new and seasoned alike, prevent and rehab injuries as well as enhance their performance.
Lindsay is a strong advocate for physical therapy as a steadfast tool to aid and empower patients in overcoming their pain and sustain their overall health through physical function. Lindsay understands the impact that pain can have on overall well-being and emphasizes a holistic treatment approach to optimize long-term management. She is committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for her patients to reach their personal goals and return to their healthy, happy, and pain-free lifestyles.
In her free time, you can find Lindsay practicing what she preaches with her husband Justin and their fluffy malamute Titus. She is an avid hiker, marathoner, snowboarder, kayaker and ice climber and loves fishing, practicing yoga, gardening and backpacking all over Alaska. Her biggest passion continues to be traveling and she finds great joy in using her clinical skills to aid the developing world on various international medical teams.
