Our Philadelphia Physical Therapy Team

When you need a Philadelphia Physical Therapy expert, come to The PrivatGym™ | Rittenhouse.  Why you might ask?

Well, everyone on our Philadelphia Physical Therapy team is a physical therapist. And that makes a difference in the quality of your care.

You work one-on-one with a Philadelphia Physical Therapy Doctor (DPT) for your entire session.

The PrivatGym only employs licensed physical therapists.  They have earned a Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree.  Plus they have multiple certifications and extensive experience.

We work with you to create a program that addresses your conditions and needs.  Each is unique.  But there is one common element.  And that’s to return each patient to optimum condition.

Good enough just doesn’t cut it for our Philadelphia Physical Therapy Team.

Just like with our Privat Personal Training program, you’ll work in a supportive private setting.  Because we want your to have the best experience – we’ve thought of most things.  We have private changing and shower facilities.  And we have complimentary healthy snacks, cold-pressed juice and Elixr® coffee.
