Jillian Knab for #LifeWithoutLimits

Jillian Knab treated in our Chalfont location and was able to get back to playing softball and keep her dream alive!! Here is her story:

“I’ve been playing softball for 8 years, and I have always dreamed of playing in college. Around 2 years ago I tore my rotator cuff when I was pitching. I had to get an MRI and go through physical therapy at a different facility (not Apex).  I went through useless arm exercises that only softened the pain. When I was released from PT I went back to playing but only for a month before the pain returned. My godmother suggested I go to Apex; however I was very leery because of my past experience.  At Apex they seemed to really care about me. Marsha got me back to throwing in a couple months. I really enjoyed going to physical therapy because everyone there wanted to make sure I got better. I could tell they really love their jobs. Thanks to Apex, I had the chance to play for the North Penn softball team at shortstop and play third base for the NP Eclipse without any pain!!!! I am so grateful for everyone at Apex because they have given me the opportunity to continue what I love.”

Congratulations Jillian!  Continued success when you go off to college!

Welcome to Apex Physical Therapy and our Pottstown/Coventry location Emily!

Emily is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association(APTA) and Pennsylvania Physical Therapy Association(PPTA).  She completed specialized courses in geriatrics and advanced musculoskeletal management while at Temple University. Emily has experience working with complex vestibular cases, such as vertigo and BPPV . She was also the recipient of the prestigious Best Platform Presentation for capstone project titled, “Effectiveness of High Intensity Exercise Post-Stroke.”

Emily’s treatment philosophy focuses on individualized patient treatments and educating her patients to help them manage their symptoms when not in therapy.  She utilizes evidence based practice to treat orthopedic and vestibular conditions including Balance and Gait Disorders, Vertigo, and Joint Replacement Rehabilitation. She is currently working towards her board certification in the area of geriatrics through the APTA.

As a physical therapist, through on-on-one treatment, I am able to build a unique relationship with each patient and in doing so help to assist and empower him or her to achieve their personal goals. I chose Apex Physical Therapy because their treatment model allows for and promotes this treatment philosophy more than any other physical therapy company  in the area.”

Outside of work I enjoy staying active with family and friends as well as watching or attending a variety of sporting events.
