MaggieMaggie Goedeke, DPT

…recently graduated with her DPT from Wichita State University and besides being a lifelong Kansan, she has done clinical training in Florida and Colorado as well. She moved to Alaska after falling in love with the ocean and mountains, finding Homer to be the perfect place with both! Maggie loves anything outside and finds it extra special if her miniature schnauzer can join the fun! Maggie’s specialty clinical training is based in manual therapy for improving joint mobility, postural alignment, and retraining muscle imbalances to help restore natural function and improve quality of life, with special interests in back, hip and neck pain. Maggie enjoys treating each person as a Whole Person, not just a body part. She finds joy in life by sharing her positive attitude with everyone she meets. Maggie’s favorite part about physical therapy is not only helping people during their visits, but teaching them the skills they need to take control of their own body in the future.
Maggie also has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music Theatre from Wichita State University, which has much carryover into physical therapy, just ask her! She believes it was four years well spent studying human intention, styles of body movement and posture, as well as breath, relaxation, and the ability to work with abstract concepts for developing skilled isolated movement.
Maggie is just thrilled to be here at Homer Physical therapy working with such wonderful people!
