Physiotherapy Associates, Exton, Pennsylvania, is opening a new clinic location in Erie, Pennsylvania. Known as Keystone Rehabilitation Systems-Erie South, the clinic will offer what Physiotherapy Associates calls “a comprehensive range of physical therapy services, as well as treatment for lymphedema; specialized programs for dancers, gymnasts, and other performing artists; and a breast cancer rehabilitation program.”
“Opening this clinic in Erie highlights the opportunities we have as a company to provide cutting-edge physical therapy services across the U.S.,” said Pete Grabaskas, PT, COO of Physiotherapy Associates. “By combining outstanding clinicians with new facilities, Physiotherapy Associates allows millions of our patients to lead healthier lives.”
In addition to the clinic’s physical therapy services, it will also offer a new program for patients recovering from breast cancer. “The program was developed to help patients return to their daily activities quickly and safely,” Physiotherapy Associates wrote in a press release. “Patients schedule an office visit prior to surgery where baseline measurements are taken. Then, patients are given a personalized home program based on their needs and their corresponding surgical procedure. Last, patients have appointments at the three- and six-month intervals following surgery. Measurements are repeated, and, if any deficits are noted, the physician is contacted and an appropriate treatment plan is implemented. This program helps identify any problems early and facilitates a smooth recovery.”
The new clinic is located at the intersection of Old French Road and Perry Highway (also known as Route 97 and Route 505).
