We Focus on YOU, to Achieve the Results YOU Want!
Our promises to you:
Your visit will be spent working with your Physical Therapist.
Your visits will be driven by YOUR goals, and those we have set based on your PT evaluation and findings.
Your program will be designed specifically for you.
WE BOOK APPOINTMENTS FROM 9AM-5PM MON-FRI
IF YOU CANNOT BOOK DURING NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS, EVENING AND SATURDAY APPOINTMENTS ARE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.
Wonder if Embody PT is the right place to help you meet your goals and to provide solutions? That is why we offer consultaions or "discovery visits". A consultation is the sharing of information about your concerns and issues in order to reach a better understanding of it or to make a decision. It is not an evaluation or treatment, but is a way for you to decide on your next step in meeting your goals, resuming the life you want without pain, bladder and pelvic issues, or to prevent issues.
Specialized Services at Embody Physiotherapy:
Real Time Ultrasound (Rehabilitation Ultrasound)
A picture is worth a thousand words, right?
We are one of the only Physical Therapist groups in Western PA using Real Time Ultrasound (RTUS) to assess and retrain musculoskeletal problems and as Biofeedback. We use this information to help you retrain, strengthen, and re-coordinate your muscle groups.
Among other areas, we utilize RTUS to assess:
Pelvic Floor dysfunction, including incontinence.
Prehab (training BEFORE surgery) prior to prostatectomy.
Diastasis Rectus Abdominus and abdominal retraining.
Musculoskeletal retraining in the hip and pelvis.
Pelvic Health and Pain
Are concerns or issues with pelvic pain or health affecting your daily life or keeping you from doing the things you want to do? So much of what we do on a daily basis is centered around movement, and a lot of that works with the pelvis. The goal at Embody is to provide you with the solutions and answers you need to reolve your concerns.
Some issues you may be having:
Back and Hip Pain
Pelvic, SI, and Tailbone Pain

Care for Moms-To-Be and New Moms
The world of pregnancy and childbirth can be hard to navigate, and your body is changing in ways you may not have experienced before. We are here to help guide you during pregnancy and after birth. Often, women think of PT only as a means to "fix", but especially during pregnancy and after birth, we help you gain optimal mobility, strength, and function.
Expert Physical Therapists can act as "facilitators":
- Helping you to gain and use the optimal muscle and tissue tension and strength to support the baby during pregnancy
- To help you have space and mobility to allow the baby to navigate their way during delivery
- To help you recover, restore, restrengthen, and re-fine after delivery.
Some things you might have heard of, be experiencing, or be concerned about:
Pelvic Ring Pain (pubic symphysis, SI, and "sciatica")
Diastasis Rectus Abdominus (DRA)
Painful episiotomy scar or C-section scar
Back, neck, and joint pain
You do not need to live with these issues. We evaluate and treat these and more to help you have the healthiest and most confident pregnancy and post-partume time possible. The 40 weeks it takes to prepare childbirth and the birth itself is quite a lot of work for your body. As your body recovers from this journey, we can help you regain strength and resume your regular exercise and activities with fewer concerns. Click here for more information
