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.

We are unsurpassed! Well, at least our patients think so!

“I first came to Excel Physical Therapy as a skeptic. I was wrong to think that way. I experienced whiplash in a recent car accident & figured one appointment to assess my back couldn’t hurt. Through my therapy I discovered just how strained my back muscles were.   I saw results immediately. Excel gave me the hands on experience needed to heal. They also gave me exercises to take home so that I could further work on my recovery outside of the office. The staff was amazing, putting things lightly. Everyone goes the extra step and always has a smile on their face. If you choose physical therapy, choose Excel because the care, customer service & satisfaction with your therapy will be unsurpassed.”
