Physical Therapy provider opens new outpatient Aquatic Therapy facility in Vandergrift
Wednesday, January 30, 2013 – WESTARM Therapy & Nursing of Lower Burrell, PA is proud to announce the opening of their newest facility in Vandergrift, Northern Westmoreland County, located near the Vandergrift Bridge at 111 Sherman Avenue, Vandergrift, PA 15690.
Physical rehabilitation services will be provided by experienced and licensed physical therapist Mike Lovgren, DPT. Programs offered will include Aquatic Therapy in a constant 90 degree heated pool that is easily accessible to patients with physical limitations. Traditional land-based therapy will be offered for orthopedic injuries and sports management training.
Brian Jacob, MHA, President, feels that this location is ideal to meet the increased needs of the local community due to the recent closing of the pool at Armstrong County Memorial Hospital. Also, there has been a demand by community residents who requested the use of water therapy to treat Chronic Pain and Arthritis.
WESTARM is a Medicare Certified Rehabilitation Agency that has been in business for over 28 years. They offer outpatient Physical, Occupational & Speech Therapy at eight (8) facilities and Skilled Nursing homecare services in the same vicinities. They also contract with local school districts to provide therapy for special needs students and athletic training for injured athletes.
