Our Physical Therapy Services

Every day, we see patients who need help figuring out how to feel better, and our skilled physical therapists in Gladwyne, PA, can tailor a treatment plan to your specific needs. So whether you're recovering from a sports injury, having trouble with your balance, or have a neurological or cardiovascular condition, we are sure to have a treatment option for you.

  • Movement Analysis

    A current or former injury can bring movement-related anomalies, but they can also happen independently. For example, these ailments may cause pain or make it difficult to balance.  At Primal Physical Therapy, our movement analysis therapy allows us to treat the primary reason for the issue rather than merely the symptom.

  • Gait Analysis

    Lack of flexibility, strength, or stability is frequently blamed for repetitive stress injuries that occur during jogging or walking. Our physical therapist will thoroughly examine your gait from head to toe at all gait cycle points and compare the findings to a  thorough movement analysis

  • Dry Needling

    Muscle tissue is treated with dry needling to reduce pain, deactivate trigger points, and restore function. A tiny monofilament needle penetrates the epidermis and treats the underlying muscular trigger points during a dry needling procedure.

  • Laser Therapy

    Laser therapy promotes cellular healing and reduces inflammation by delivering a therapeutic light dosage. Utilizing the most cutting-edge technology available, the Class Four Laser, our experienced physical therapists in Gladwyne, PA, can safely and efficiently treat regions with open wounds, such as post-surgical incisions.

  • Blood Flow Restriction

    Laser therapy promotes cellular healing and reduces inflammation by delivering a therapeutic light dosage. Utilizing the most cutting-edge technology available, the Class Four Laser, our experienced physical therapists in Gladwyne, PA, can safely and efficiently treat regions with open wounds, such as post-surgical incisions.

  • Sports Rehab

    No two sports recovery programs at Primal Physical Therapy are the same. Each person's sport-specific program will be created after a comprehensive assessment and evaluation. Our sports rehab program can help you perform at your best, whether you are healing from an injury or want to improve your skills.

  • Postural Correction

    The goal of posture correction therapy is to address any muscular imbalances contributing to discomfort sensations. You will receive exercises designed specifically for you by our therapists, and you'll employ strength training to support these range-of-motion improvements.

  • Golf Swing Analysis

    It's time to get your body and golf swing back precisely. Our mission is to assist golfers in improving their performance and preventing accidents on the course. Additionally, we will give our patients tools to aid them in creating a fundamental fitness routine to improve their swing.
