“What We Do”
It is the prepared individual that is able to describe themselves in 30 seconds or less. Some call it a sales pitch or an elevator speech. Likewise, the next time you meet a prospective employer on an elevator, or your family has asked you for the hundredth time why you have chosen Physical Therapy, here is a quick example from which you could base your answer:
We believe that all people deserve to be comfortable in their movement, that everyone should be free to walk, that everyone should be well enough to perform their daily activities.
We guide people through tough times, and when they are hurt we help them come back stronger than ever. We teach people how to control their bodies and how to use their own movement to help them.
We are diverse health professionals that span every field of care and create meaningful change in our patients. We are Physical Therapists.
SPOTLIGHT: Congratulations to Carlos Darby, Nick Hamilton, and John Schneider for completing the Pittsburg Marathon, and Danielle DeMarco, Emily Clark, Sue Staats, and Maria Calla for completing the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon!
