Those arriving from another state or country are asked to self-quarantine for 14 days. Essential travel is defined as travel for work and study, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply chains, health, immediate medical care, and safety and security.
On January 5th, 2021, Governor Inslee announced "Healthy Washington-Roadmap to Recovery". As of January 11th, no regions are eligible to enter Phase 2.

Balance PT remains open to care for our patients in need. We are following the strict guidelines of the CDC and WHO, and, as always, using universal precautions for all disease prevention. All providers and staff will be wearing masks. Patients will be provided a mask and are required to wear one. Staff members have all received their first dose of Pfizer vaccine. Screening procedures for both staff and patients began 03/16/20. Basal temperatures are measured and all patients are required to use hand sanitizer upon entry to the clinic. Anyone without a mask or with a fever or cough will not be treated.
If you have attended any large event, traveled in the last 10 days, been in close contact (as defined by the CDC) with someone who has traveled, or been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID 19 in the past two weeks; we ask that you contact us so we can discuss further screening questions to make the best determination for your care. (Updated CDC guidelines.) If you display any symptoms of illness, please call our front desk as soon as possible. All late cancel fees will be waived for illness during this time. Only patients will be allowed in the waiting room, anyone else will be asked to please wait outside. Thank you for your cooperation.
Balance PT has only private treatment rooms. Our goal is for 10 or less people in the clinic at one time. Additional regimented procedures for clinic and room cleaning processes are in place, please be patient as we take the necessary time to prepare and sterilize your treatment room.
Balance PT is offering Telemedicine services. Most insurance plans are covering these services with no patient responsibility for the "virtual" visit. If you wish to have Telemedicine services, please email: Emily@balancept.org.

Let's Not Forget Our Friends and Neighbors
during this challenging and isolating time. Coronavirus doesn't recognize race, nationality, nor ethnicity. It's important to consider how our thoughts, words, and actions affect the people whose lives we touch. Let us continue to affirm the dignity and value or each person and model a grace-filled community.
A Thank You Salute
Nancy survived cancer and multiple levels of spinal fusion. After being told she might not ever walk again at the hospital, with treatment at Balance PT, she hiked to the top of Indian Canyon. Nancy sent this photo in celebration. Congratulations Nancy!

At Balance Physical Therapy our mission is to provide you with outstanding care and to ensure you’re treated with respect and compassion. Locally and privately owned by Karen and John DaSilva since 1998, our primary commitment is to our patients and our community. We believe in serving the community in which we live. Our care focuses on the basic principles of manual therapy, extensive patient education, and your unique home exercise program.
Each of our physical therapists combine skilled “hands on” therapy with movement, exercise, and education to create individualized treatment to meet your unique needs. Our team of experienced therapists carry advanced certifications as: Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist, Manual Therapy Certified, Certified Rehabilitation Pilates, and much more. Combined our seasoned therapists have over a 75 years of experience.
We can treat your aches and pains ranging from neck, shoulder and back problems, sports injuries, overuse pain, work injuries, head-aches, TMJ, balance/vestibular problems, woman's health issues, knee, foot and ankle issues, and we can even cast your custom orthotics.
We take most major insurance, including Medicare. If you haven’t been to our clinic, stop by and say “hello” next time you’re in Issaquah (across the street from Target) and pick up a free tote bag made of recycled milk jugs. We think you’ll agree it’s a unique place. A place that welcomes everyone of all ages and backgrounds. A place that’s financially sustainable so it can continue to offer services to the community, but doesn’t make finances the central point for patient care decisions. A place that still believes compassion is part of the healing process.
We would love to help you restore balance to your body. Be sure to ask about our FREE child care offer* while you are treated. (*Sorry, currently not available during the COVID 19 pandemic.)
