There are always a million and one excuses for missing a workout.
“I’m just too busy.”
“They need me at work. I can’t leave.”
“I have to pick up the kids at daycare.”
Similar to working out, physical therapy can sometimes get in the way of your life although is somehow “feels” harder to blow off PT because, more often than not, it falls into the category of HAVE TO DO, rather than WANT TO DO.
When you need therapy, no excuses, please. You just have to be there. Healing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle depend on it.
Convenience may be the difference between going and not going to therapy. Having your therapy sessions nearby often can “reduce the excuse.”
The Jewish Community Center is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Squirrel Hill. Facilities used for JCC members to work out are also conveniently available for anyone needing physical therapy.
A few years ago, the JCC and the Jewish Association on Aging teamed up to provide a service called PT@JCC.
Many of the same therapy services available at JAA’s main campus off Brown’s Hill Road are now easily accessible at this satellite location at JCC:
- Pre/Post-Surgical Rehabilitation
- Sports Injuries
- Pediatric and Adult Muscular Imbalances
- Balance and Neurological Conditions
- Pain Management
- Vestibular Rehab
Besides these therapies, you can walk into PT@JCC on any given day and see specialty services in action:
- Therapist Alexis Mills in the pool working with Betty, a client with a visual impairment who benefits weekly from aquatic therapy. Alexis helps Betty with overall weakness in her legs, focusing on balance, strengthening, and endurance.
- Trish Murphy putting David through his paces in one of studios, helping him learn to get up easily when lying down, a difficult process for someone like him diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Called LSVT BIG Therapy, Trish’s work is designed specifically to treat Parkinson’s disease. As a licensed clinician in the field of Parkinson’s treatment, Trish administers to each of her clients with 16 sessions per month – four hour-long sessions per week – to address the unique movement impairments those with Parkinson’s may have.
Dr. Scott Rosen, Clinical Director with PT@JCC, specializes in manual therapy, orthopedics and sports physical therapy. He and his team provide each patient with a thorough and complete evaluation, deliver a diagnosis, review symptoms, and get patients back on track for a lifetime of wellness.
Scott is constantly singing the praises of JCC’s services because they are so unique:
- With a direct access license, there is no physician referral required.
- You do not have to be a JCC member.
- If you desire, you can receive a JCC membership discount (new members only).
- Evening hours are available.
- Most insurances are accepted, including UPMC.
Benefits far outweigh every reason NOT to seek therapy with PT@JCC:
- Regain your strength.
- Work within your physical boundaries.
- Receive support from professional, certified therapists.
- Restore you maximum function.
- Revitalize your life.
You no longer have any excuse.
