FAQs

If you don’t find the answer to your question below, feel free to call us at (570) 385-5080 and one of our friendly staff members will be happy to help you.

Do I need physical therapy?

If you are looking at our site, you most likely need the services we offer. However, we encourage you to have a consultation with your family/primary care doctor and/or referring healthcare provider prior to contacting our office. Once your provider writes a script for treatment, please give us a call at (570) 385-5080.

Who do you treat?

We have been successful in treating and rehabilitating a host of orthopedic, cardiovascular, neurological, and surgical concerns. Besides athletes, joint replacement patients, and injured workers with back or neck pain (among others), we also treat ailments that may be less well-known such as:

  • Post-stroke rehabilitation
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Osgood–Schlatter disease
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Vestibular (balance) conditions (where indicated)
  • Greater trochanteric bursitis
  • Achilles tendinitis or rupture
  • Pediatrics

Will I be seen by the same therapist every visit?

Jeff will provide your initial examination and then you will be assigned to one of our excellent physical therapist assistants (PTAs) for the duration of your care. Jeff will periodically check in for status updates and to make modifications in treatment if needed.

What should I wear to therapy?

We encourage patients to wear loose fitting or athletic clothing (for ultrasound and for manual manipulation) and a good pair of athletic or running shoes. This is for your comfort and to allow us to access treatment areas for optimal effect. This also allows you to exercise without restriction.

What treatments do you provide?

For a detailed explanation of the treatments we provide, see Our Services.

We also believe in a “low tech, high effect” approach and simple bodyweight exercises that can provide a very challenging workout. Check out our Freehab page, as one of our therapists demonstrates exercise progression using simple tools and body weight from basic to highly advanced.
