Conshohocken Physical Therapy in Conshohocken and Total Performance Physical Therapy in North Wales have been going through some growing pains lately as they renovated, expanded and added new talent to their roster in order to offer more comprehensive rehabilitation and sports training services.

Conshohocken Physical Therapy has recently renovated their 11th Avenue facility in order to provide a higher level of orthopedic rehabilitation in addition to proactive therapy, which focuses on injury prevention. Some of the new features of the facility include an anti-gravity treadmill, video analysis equipment and an Endless Pool for aquatic therapy.

The AlterG anti-gravity treadmill’s differential air pressure technology developed by NASA gives the user a sense of weightlessness which reduces impact on the joints. The Dartfish video software which offers slow motion analysis of your gait or golf swing mechanics is another helpful technology for runners and other athletes.

“This enables us to impact more people with the power of good physical therapy as well as teach them more about proactive therapy which improves performance and prevents injuries,” said Dr. Desirea Caucci, physical therapist and one of the owners of Conshohocken Physical Therapy. “In the rapidly changing healthcare system, it is more important than ever to be educated about your health and to prevent injuries from occurring or worsening.”

Total Performance Physical Therapy and Sports Performance has taken its growing pains in a different direction with the opening of its second location in Hatfield inside BucksMont Indoor Sports Center. The new facility is twice the size of its North Wales site and includes a separate sports performance training area.

Former professional soccer player, Dr. Lindsey Carstens will join the new location as a full time physical therapist while Mike Davis recently from the Hill School will be the new director of sports performance. The clinic is open for everyone from top performing athletes to weekend warriors to people who are just starting to workout.

“Now athletes are able to come to us for all of the training needs. Why have just a trainer when you can have an entire medical staff like the pros?” said Dr. Heather Moore, owner of Total Performance Physical Therapy. “ Our physical therapists and trainers work together to make sure that every athlete, whether injured or healthy, has a program that will not only make them stronger, better and faster but also focus on injury prevention and making sure you make it through the whole season.”
