Physical Therapy Treatments in Ardmore, PA

An injury is not just an isolated incident—the entire area in which the injury occurred will be affected somehow. Common injuries that would require physical therapy include:

  • Sports-related injuries
  • Repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Postoperative rehabilitation following knee or hip replacement
  • Surgery, neck, and shoulder problems due to muscle strain or poor posture
  • Chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia
  • And more!

At Primal Physical Therapy, we strongly believe that no two injuries are the same. That's why each person's physical therapy plan must be tailored to their individual needs –– a client receives one-on-one care. 

Our customized physical therapy programs aim to get you back to your daily routine faster and prevent future injuries. That means restoring your strength, flexibility, and endurance while reducing pain. Our physical therapy treatments in Ardmore, PA include:

  • Movement Analysis

    To get you on the road to recovery faster and help prevent future injuries, we provide a comprehensive movement analysis of your body. From this assessment, we can gain insight into how and why you got hurt so that we may identify any underlying issues or deficiencies that need attention.

  • Blood Flow Restriction

    Our Ardmore Physical Therapy clinic is proud to offer Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) treatment, a modern manual therapy technique that uses light elastic wraps. BFR works by compressing the muscles and reducing blood flow, allowing them to respond more efficiently in less time.

    During a BFR therapy session, we apply a surgical-grade tourniquet to reduce blood flow in the limb and let the brain think it's exerting itself more than usual. This way, you can achieve maximum strength gains without training at high intensities.

  • Dry Needling

    Dry Needling involves inserting tiny filament needles into your specific muscular trigger points. This can be an extremely beneficial supplement to traditional physical therapy exercises, as it helps patients reduce pain and inflammation, enabling them to resume mobility quickly. In addition, this type of therapy facilitates the body's natural healing mechanisms by promoting regenerative processes that speed up recovery.

    Dry Needling is a revolutionary treatment used to:

    • Alleviate tight muscles
    • Decrease muscle spasms and tension
    • Reduce scar tissue in injured areas of the body for better recovery
    • Enhance circulation
  • Laser Therapy

    Laser Therapy offers a host of healing benefits, such as the following:

    • Reducing inflammation and pain
    • Increasing blood circulation to injured areas
    • Promoting tissue regeneration
    • Enhancing the body's natural healing process

    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

    Injuries are an inherent risk of any sport, regardless of the athlete's skill level. While certain sports may increase one's likelihood of a particular type of injury, no two injuries are identical. Hence, our goal is to provide each athlete with the most successful treatment possible.

    Our skilled team of Physical Therapists and sports medicine specialists will collaborate with you, ensuring a swift recovery and your return to the activities you love. From acute to chronic pain, we provide tailored treatment plans combined with an empathetic atmosphere so you can get back out quickly at full strength!

The Keys to Our Success

Primal movements serve a functional, purposeful and efficient role in creating success with physical tasks while minimizing your risk of injury. Sadly, the demands and structure of modern society have distorted these pure movement patterns, making us increasingly vulnerable to accidental harm.


Primal Physical Therapy provides cutting-edge exercises and strategies to suit your unique physical needs. This is how we assist in quickly getting you back on track:

  • Diagnosis: Identifying the origin of an issue is essential to achieving a lasting resolution.
  • Blending traditional treatments with new practices: Our revolutionary methodology combines the most successful treatments we've administered for two decades with modern techniques and technologies.
  • Our philosophy: Our definition of success lies in our patient's progress and results, not in the number treated. The individualized approach to therapy allows us to thoroughly comprehend your past injuries, discomfort, and route to recovery.

This is the place to go if you’re an athlete or injuries that have been bothering that you’ve never taken care of. Eric is super knowledgeable and highly skilled. I can’t wait to see him again

Update 4/6: I had my second in person session today. He’s still the best. It’s so nice to finally work with someone that knows what they’re doing. Eric is smart, confident, competent and knowledgeable. He takes a great functional approach to rehab that is so hard to find. First he put me on a 6 week exercise program after just a FaceTime call and exchange of messages. After that program I had already felt significant progress. I was then able to see him in person for an assessment and dry needling. I left feeling better immediately. I’m so excited to continue working with him and finally correct the issues from a 2+ year old injury. Highly recommend seeing Eric and his team for treatment.

I had dry needling done on my very painful/stiff frozen shoulder. I don't fully understand the science on how it, BUT IT WORKS!! My range of motion improved greatly after 1 session. I was honest to God in shock when Eric rechecked my range of motion after the dry needling. Absolutely amazing!! Thank you so much, Primal!!

Eric was extremely thorough and knowledgeable! I was struggling with hip bursitis and Eric was able to loosen/manipulate the hip socket and dry needle the area. My range of motion has already improved and I just had my first visit this morning. Highly recommend!
