About Pittsburgh Performance Physical Therapy
Being in recovery mode is not for the faint of heart. It requires mental and physical work and commitment to get better and to return to your pre-injury status/life. We’re here to help you reach your goals! We are a unique outpatient physical therapy clinic which believes in providing one on one treatment with each patient allowing for extraordinary care and quicker recovery for patients in less visits. We want to give patients knowledge about their bodies and insight into how their daily activity affects their body, insight about the recovery process. When it comes to addressing pain and injury, 3 steps are not easy but are necessary for your recovery: Decide: you need to decide to do something about your problem, Commit: you need to commit to carrying out the recovery plan, and Perform: you need to follow through in order to accomplish these steps and goals. We’re here to enable you to get into action mode and ultimately perform every day at your best—and even better than before.
Meet the Doctor: Elisabeth Wheeler PT, DPT Owner and Physical Therapist
I am endlessly grateful to have the opportunity to share what knowledge and skills I have gained over the years in diagnosing and treating injuries to anyone in need. I can’t say thank you enough to my family, my support system, and my patient community–I certainly would not be where I am without you! I truly believe in being the voice for my patients when they don’t know what to do or who to seek treatment from. The years of practicing in the Pittsburgh area have allowed the opportunity to form relationships with many other healthcare professionals serving to produce a network which I can offer to patients. My hope is to inspire people to live life to the fullest, return to activities they love while learning about the body and how to keep it working for them for life. If you take your vehicle to an expert mechanic to get diagnosed and fixed, why wouldn’t you go to the body experts when something isn’t working properly? Injuries and pain can be devastating, but there IS hope. Our bodies demonstrate amazing resiliency with great healing capacity! Physical therapy is a place to heal and better yourself physically and mentally enabling you to take special care of that body you were given!
