COVID -19 Updates

On August 18th, Governor Inslee announced an updated state wide mask mandate and vaccine requirements. Click here to find a vaccine appointment. Balance PT supports the science and safety of COVID 19 vaccines and we strongly encourage all our patients and community to consider if the vaccine is right for you. 

Masks are still required to be worn on the premises of all healthcare facilities.  Gov. Inslee also continues to allow physical therapy as "an essential business" as part of the class defined as essential businesses. List of jobs that are essential.


On November 19, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration amended the emergency use authorization (EUA) for both Moderna and the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines authorizing use of a single booster dose for all individuals 18 years of age and older after completion of primary vaccination with any FDA-authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine.

We encourage anyone in these categories to consider if a booster is right for you. Most regional pharmacies are scheduling appointments. We also encourage you to consider obtaining a digital COVID-19 Verification Record. Links include:  waverify.doh.wa.gov and clearme.com/vaccine-validation 

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 continue to wear masks. Patients will be provided a mask and are still required to wear one. Staff members have all received the Pfizer vaccine. 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 are NOT vaccinated and 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 10 days; 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 12 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: Kira@balancept.org.

Welcome Shanna Sullivan, PT, DPT
We are thrilled to have you join our team  
I am a graduate from George Fox University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program in Newberg, Oregon. I started my career in Oregon, at an outpatient physical therapy clinic and wellness center in a very active and outdoor community. I refined my skills in various orthopedic-related injuries and focused on return to sport and injury prevention. Within my first few years in clinical practice, I also gained a special interest in treating Women’s Health after discovering how common pelvic floor dysfunction is, and the lack of treatment in this area. I have taken advanced training through the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Institute to become specialized in pelvic rehabilitation. I am passionate about helping my patients restore function and achieve well-being in all aspects of their life.   
I am originally from North Bend, WA, and my husband and I recently moved back to raise our daughter near family and in the community that I love and grew up in. Outside of the clinic, I enjoy going on coffee dates, running, hiking, and hitting the ski slopes. 
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. 
Old and Young
A Thank You Salute

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.)
