Stuck at your desk and unable to get to much-needed physical therapy treatments?
Physical Therapy & Wellness Institute, based in Horsham, has the remedy. PTW has started an “office calls” program whereby its therapists will come to a patient’s workplace to deliver treatments. Jim Fagnani, PTW’s co-owner and managing partner, said the service is being offered out of the company’s newest, and ninth, location in Horsham, writes John George in the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The first PTW opened in 2002, and there are currently 27 centers throughout the region providing about 1,200 sessions a week for about 4,000 patients a year. Now, by bringing the sessions on the road, PTW will be carving a whole new niche.
“We got the idea because there are so many office parks near here,” Fagnani said. “Robert Babb [PTW’s co-owner and president] and I believe you should make it easy for people to access your services. We know it’s not easy to carve time away from your family and away from work to get physical therapy. So if somebody can’t get to a therapy center, we will come to their office.”
PTW already sends therapists — equipped with a portable treatment table, assorted weights, resistance bands and other tools of the trade — to patients’ homes for its house calls service. Office calls is an extension of that program.
