FAQ / Common Questions

A. We also serve patients from the Lower Valley area including New Kensington, Arnold, Lower Burrell, Tarentum, Brackenridge, Russelton, Natrona and Natrona Heights.

A. We serve patients from all over the Pittsburgh area, including: Fox Chapel, Aspinwall, Blawnox, Harmar, Oakmont, O’Hara, and Sharpsburg.

A. 1. EVLAUATION and PHYSICAL ASSESSMENT includes the following:

  • Assessment of which muscles are lacking strength.
  • Testing of joint biomechanics for dysfunction.
  • Breakdown of your injury or symptoms step by step.
  • Static (posture) and dynamic (movement and gait) evaluation to determine where the physical machine is functioning outside of “normal” parameters

2. HANDS ON MANUAL THERAPY: We use our hands to mobilize dysfunctional tissue and joints. This will assist you in a speedier, more complete recovery. Through the use of manual therapy, we are able to provide pressure and resistance when and where it is needed most to increase joint range of motion and tissue mobility.

3. MUSCLE RE-EDUCATION: Once the areas that require the most help have been identified, we will design a personalized comprehensive exercise regime. The goal of an exercise program is to re-educate and restore the strength and function of the muscles involved. The exercise program will be specific to the muscles which support and protect your injury or dysfunction.

4. MAINTENANCE AND PREVENTION: The key to a complete and successful restoration of function is learning how to prevent an injury or dysfunction from recurring.

A. Most patients are referred to Physical Therapy Now because; either they are recovering from surgery, an accident, a debilitating injury, or they have chronic pain! Post operative patients or post injury patients need rehabilitation of their joints and muscle/soft tissue systems. We treat these movement dysfunctions and their associated pains to restore your body’s ability to move in a normal, pain free manner.

Chronic pain is best understood by looking at the basic origin of pain. Pain occurs when tissue is damaged.  Physical Therapy Now can help determine why tissue is not healing, and to develop a plan of care that will alleviate stresses to damaged tissue so that it can heal.
