Welcome to Penn Therapy Associates

At Penn Therapy Associates we understand that you have the right to choose where you go for physical therapy. You need to get back to work and care for your family as quickly as possible.

It is also important for you to be as mobile as possible to perform the necessary activities of daily living such as walking longer distances, navigating a stairway or getting dressed. These activities that we take for granted can become difficult or nearly impossible after an injury or surgery.

In addition to elective surgeries and injuries, motor vehicle accidents and work related injuries can affect your ability to return to work and perform these important tasks as well.

For those of us that are very active, resuming any sports can take an even longer amount of time without the proper rehabilitation or guidance through an exercise program. Because of this it is important that you choose the right physical therapy practice for treatment.

Physicians and patients in the Delaware Valley have chosen Penn Therapy Associates over the last 20 years for their rehabilitation needs because our expertise has enhanced their quality of life. We specialize in spine care, post surgical rehabilitation, orthopedics, manual therapy, and offer personalized fitness programs.

No referral? No problem!
You can choose!

You may not need the physician referral mandated by state law to begin the evaluation and treatment of your condition.

  • Quicker access to the treatment you deserve
  • You may save money
  • Thoroughly evaluated condition
  • Physical therapy first may result in shorter overall treatment

Our Patients Are Feeling Great!

  • J.L.

    Mark and his staff have been exactly what I needed! They all are to be commended and recognized for their compassion (action with passion) to ensure me and every patient I have seen frequent the Penn Therapy office, improve their personal health care. Amen!
  • Nancy C.

    As a retired RN, I appreciated all the effort that went into answers to all my questions, even having my PT draw pictures or showing me a plastic model.
  • Mack M.

    What a great place. Everyone in this entire facility is tuned into the patient needs. Bob Otto was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Penn Therapy. And, if in the future I need rehab/PT this will be my go to place.
  • Martin L.

    I came to Penn Therapy after a knee replacement and the experience has made all the difference. I had had a difficult recuperation and the time and effort that was given me was exceptional. I heartily recommend the site and the staff without qualification.
  • Helen A.

    After having an epidural for spine pain I went to Penn Therapy. Bob Otto was my therapist. He is very good at what he does and very professional (as is all the staff). If needed give Bob or Penn Therapy a call and they will surely help you. Thank you very much.
  • Marjorie G.

    I have been to three physical therapy offices and Penn therapy is the best by far. Everyone in the office is friendly and caring, and the front desk staff were very patient and helpful when I had scheduling problems. This office is highly recommended!

If you have any questions or would like to schedule your initial consultation, please contact us.
