Physical Therapy at Our New Southpointe Office in Canonsburg

Whether you’re recovering from an injury, a surgery, or dealing with a chronic condition, our experienced physical therapists can help. We offer a comprehensive range of services, including:

  • Sports Injuries -  Whether you're a weekend warrior or professional athlete, and whether your sports injury is minor or major, we're here for you!  We're proud to offer individualized recovery plans to all of our patients to get them back on the field, court, diamond, or track as soon as possible.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries - A 'soft tissue' injury is any injury to the muscles, tendons, or ligaments. Our therapists have extensive experience treating all types of soft tissue injuries, from simple strains to more complex injuries such as tendonitis and ligament tears. Your physical therapist will work with you to decrease pain through a combination of strategies.
  • Post-Operative Physical Therapy -  If you're recovering from surgery, our physical therapists can help you get back to your regular activities as soon as possible. We offer a full range of post-operative physical therapy services which can help minimize scar tissue, support joint motion and function, and avoid the loss of muscle mass.
  • Physical Therapy for Joint Replacements - Physical therapy treatments are a necessary part of a joint replacement recovery, as they help people restore movement in their artificial joint; build up strength around the new joint; ease their pain and swelling; help with circulation to avoid post-op complications; and, most importantly, speed up the recovery process and help people get back to their normal routines more quickly.
  • Neurological Therapy - Neurological rehabilitation and therapy is a specialized treatment method for diseases, injuries, or disorders of the nervous system. To help treat these issues, neurologic physical therapists work with patients to improve or restore their mobility, which is often negatively affected by conditions of the nervous system. There are numerous examples of potential conditions that could impair the nervous system and require specialized physical therapy, including vascular disorders, trauma, seizure disorders, degenerative disorders, and more.
  • Balance and Vestibular Rehabilitation - Vestibular physical therapy helps patients suffering from damage to their vestibular system. This system is found within the inner ear, and it's necessary to help our brains process information about motion, head position, and spatial orientation. The goal of this kind of physical therapy is to have patients return to a safe and active lifestyle.
  • Auto Injuries - Anyone who drives or rides in a car is at risk of sustaining an injury that requires physical therapy to recover. Most car accidents result in a few bumps and scrapes, but more severe injuries can make a full recovery impossible without physical therapy. The most common auto injuries we see include whiplash, herniated discs, knee trauma, and fractures.
  • Workplace Injuries - Unfortunately, getting injured at work just as common as it is preventable. We help our patients who have been injured on the job achieve the highest level of functional independence by improving strength, mobility, balance, and coordination. Our ultimate goal is to restore every capability and confidence to our patients when they get back on the job.

The experts at David Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine Center are here to help you heal and get back to your regular activities as soon as possible. Speaking of our experts…
