Physical Therapy Treatments in Ardmore, PA

Primal Physical Therapy serves every client on a one-on-one basis. No 2 injuries are exactly the same which means no two physical therapy recoveries are the same. Using that approach our experienced physical therapists will provide you with a highly personalized recovery plan tailored to your specific needs.

An injury is not just an isolated incident—the entire area in which the injury occurred will be affected in some way.

 

The goal of our customized Ardmore physical therapy programs is to get you back to your daily routine faster and prevent future injuries. That means restoring your strength, flexibility, endurance, and reducing your pain.

JJ Thomas, Eric Abramowitz, and the rest of the Primal Physical Therapy Team
  • Movement Analysis

    Knowing how and why you hurt yourself can help provide insight into avoiding future injuries and expedite your recovery process. That's why we take a complete movement analysis of the body to better understand your injury and its current impact on your daily life.

  • Blood Flow Restriction

    Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) is a cutting-edge treatment option available at our Ardmore Physical Therapy clinic. BFR is a form of manual therapy that uses lightweight elastic wraps to compress the muscles and restrict blood flow to get them working again more effectively and in less time.

    During a BFR therapy session, a surgical-grade tourniquet is used to partially obstruct blood flow to a limb, which effectively tricks the brain into believing that the limb is under heavy strain, allowing us to maximize strength gains while training at much lower intensities.

  • Dry Needling

    Dry Needling therapy is usually administered in tandem with traditional physical therapy exercises. Dry needling can help patients regain mobility by reducing pain and inflammation, while also facilitating the body's natural healing response.

    Dry Needling is a technique that involves inserting small filament needles into your tight muscles to release trigger points, reduce muscle tension, ease muscle spasms, break up scar tissue in injured areas of the body, and improve circulation.

  • Laser Therapy

    At Primal Physical Therapy we use the most advanced FDA-cleared Class Four Laser on the market. This means that the laser energy is very safe, effective for your body, and promotes healing.

    Laser Therapy offers a host of healing benefits by increasing cellular oxygenation, increasing blood flow, decreasing inflammation, and encouraging the repair of cells in your muscles, tendons, and joints.

    We offer individual sessions with our experienced clinical team or monthly packages to make your recovery process as easy and convenient as possible!

  • Ardmore Sports Rehabilitation

    Sports injuries happen to every athlete at every performance level. While every sport may predispose those athletes to a particular injury, no two sports injuries are ever the same.

    Our goal is to provide the most successful treatment possible for each athlete. Our staff of Physical Therapists and sports medicine professionals will work with you resulting in a timely recovery and return to your sport or activity.

    Whether you are suffering from acute, chronic, or simply nagging pain, we offer customized treatment programs and a compassionate environment to get you back to your sport fast and at full strength. 

  • Golf Swing Analysis in Ardmore, PA

    The Primal Golf Swing Analysis Program is lead by expert Eric Abramowitz who will provide an evaluation and treatment program to assist in the healing and prevention of a golf-related injury.

    Eric's program will leave you with at-home drills, exercises, and stretches to help maintain improvements and build sustainability for you on and off the golf course.

I would recommend Primal PT to friends and family. After one session, I received detailed instruction that suited the needs of my body to become stronger. I have been too many PT's in the past. This was the first time I received this type of detailed one on one attention/instruction.

Nothing else was working to alleviate my pain - not chiropractic, accupuncture, massage, yoga, etc. The first day I met Eric he said he knew what was wrong and was confident he could treat the issue. He was correct. I avoid leaving reviews, but I’ll happily leave this review for Eric.

I took care of patients many years ago and sometimes had to perform surgery. Having said this it wasn’t so long ago that I couldn’t render an opinion. JJ is the perfect combination of clinical expertise and compassion. She will listen to you and get to the root of the problem quickly. Best of all, she’s clinically bright enough to show you compassion and provide the much needed boost to get you healed and on your way. She will never stand in the way of your fitness goals and yet her clinical advice has always been so highly valued. JJ loves what she does and does what she loves. Enough said😊

As an active competitor in BJJ in my late 20s, I understand injuries are going to happen but the team at Primal Physical Therapy have been excellent with getting me back on the mats. I typically work with Eric. He really takes the time to understand my activities and goals to personalize my treatment. He is also extremely knowledgeable of the human anatomy and keeps it real by providing honest feedback throughout my treatment. Overall, it is a great experience to work with their team and I highly recommend checking them out.

Primal is unlike any physical therapy office I’ve ever been to. As athletes themselves, JJ and Eric have the personal experience - in addition to their vast clinical knowledge - to relate to their patients and develop very personalized treatments. For a CrossFit and jiu-jitsu hobbyist, there are no scheduled off-seasons, so I count on Primal to help me stay healthy year round. In addition to being excellent PT’s, JJ and Eric are also great people who I trust wholeheartedly.

Primal Physical Therapy is awesome! Best physical therapy office in the area. I have had many injuries being a professional athlete and Primal PT has helped me recover the fastest and helped keep me out of pain. Months ago I was dealing with a low back injury and thanks to Eric & JJ I am now out of pain. After getting me out of pain they have helped unlock my body and increased my mobility allowing me to achieve a higher level of athleticism. Both Eric & JJ have extensive knowledge of the human body and they both have a heart of gold. They take the time with each patient to assess their situation & address any concerns. Since receiving treatment I have sent many of my friends, family members, and students to Primal Physical Therapy and they all have had an amazing experience. If you are looking for Physical Therapist I would highly recommend JJ & Eric at Primal Physical Therapy.

Ardmore Physical Therapy FAQ

Not initially. Our therapists are approved direct access providers in Pennsylvania, which means they can work with you for up to 30 days without a prescription. Following that time, you will need a written prescription from a doctor.

At our state-of-the-art facility, your physical therapist will assess your condition and prescribe a personalized treatment program to help you achieve your goals. In combination with hands-on therapy sessions, we also provide guidance on exercise and rehabilitative strategies that can be performed in the comfort of your own home.

No one is going to force you to do the home exercises but we will teach you how to do them and recommend a regularity for them. Dedicating yourself to the home exercises helps you reach your goals faster and with greater success.

Quite the opposite! The earlier you start treatment, the better chance you have of being pain-free or having a low chance of recurrence. 

Yes! You will always have an individualized plan and meet with your therapist 1-on-1. This allows us to provide outstanding care for all of our patients.
