Orthopaedic physical therapy at Allegheny Health Network: Why choose us?
At AHN, you receive one-on-one care from certified physical therapists. Many of our physical therapists have training in areas such as hand injuries and concussion care, enabling us to deliver outstanding care for complex problems.

Our complete approach to care includes additional services to help you get the most out of each session. We often add strength training exercises to physical therapy sessions to help you get stronger as you heal. You have the option to continue working with our strength training coaches after treatment is complete. Read more about strength training.
Easy access to physical therapy for sports injuries
At AHN, we help you start feeling better faster. Our physical therapists are direct access certified. We can diagnose and treat minor sports injuries, including Achilles tendonitis and golfer’s elbow, without a physician referral.
For more severe problems, or if the pain does not get better with time, we work with AHN’s orthopaedic and sports medicine physicians to coordinate the next steps of your care. We are in constant communication, so you receive additional evaluations or treatments as quickly as possible.
Specialized orthopaedic physical therapy equipment
AHN is the only program in western Pennsylvania offering the latest physical therapy technologies under one roof, including:
