What we treat

Down below on this page, you’ll find the full list of what we treat and programs we offer. A high percentage of injuries and pain syndromes result from weakness and/or tightness in neighboring regions of the musculoskeletal system. Our therapists evaluate possible compensatory patterns in addition to the area of pain or loss of function. This thorough examination allows us to better identify and eliminate all underlying causes so patients achieve lasting results. We also focus on educating you, so that you’re empowered to take control of their injury, grow stronger than ever, and prevent recurrences.

We understand the impact that pain and loss of function can have on the lives of our patients. Our entire staff, from the front desk to our clinical team, provides a compassionate and motivational environment dedicated to healing. We ensure we are meeting each patient’s unique needs so their experience is both enjoyable and rewarding. We have extensive experience treating a variety of conditions including: shoulder injuries and surgeries, knee injuries and reconstructions/replacements, spinal conditions and surgeries, sports injuries and muscle traumas, chronic and acute pain syndromes, neck conditions and surgeries, pre and post-surgical cases, geriatric conditions, work-related injuries, chronic pain conditions, lower back pain, general strains and sprains, joint replacement recovery, neurological conditions, vestibular and balance conditions, auto accidents, hand and wrist injuries, and much more!

I've only had one session so far but it was great. The place is really organized, the person who works the front desk is really nice and helpful. I've had physical therapy before and it's not always a great experience, but Nora is exceptionally good at making you feel at ease. She really listens and works with you. I've been in pain for over a month now and after our session I felt hopeful about recovering for the first time. The app you get to do home exercises is extremely useful, I've already used it several times. Office is also clean and safe with everyone wearing masks, hand sanitizer available, etc. Overall this place easily stands out compared to every other physical therapy experience I've had.

Bill and Christian are terrific. I have had a lot of PT in my life and Bill is great. He is clear, encouraging and really works you. Christian, the receptionist/aide is super helpful and easy to work with.

A huge thanks! I spent 6 months (on and off Covid) with Nora, Bill and Krista doing PT on my post-neck-surgery rehab. I started with lots of shoulder, neck, scapular pain and walked out of there 6 months later feeling a ton of relief. The entire staff was amazing. They listen to you, ask questions, and genuinely care. I can't thank them enough for truly giving me my life back. Great people.

This location is the best! The evaluate your issues and set a plan for you to know what your doing in treating yourself. They immediately took me in during COVID pandemic, if it was not for them I would not have healed rapidly as I did. Staff is super friendly and answers any questions you have. They also have a great home program to do the necessary workouts to get yourself better and back into movement. Totally recommend this location with helping your physically therapy.

Staff and Physical Therapists are tops in their fields. My two lingering injuries, and constant pain, were resolved with hands on care and clear communication both written and verbal. Thank you Nora for your expertise and good nature.

I had an amazing experience rehabbing my shoulder here. The staff are all so professional, polite & friendly. They have really hired all around great people here, very talented crew! Nora, Bill, Krista & Christian have created an atmosphere that is warm, inviting and most importantly feels as safe & sanitary as possible during these crazy Covid times! So glad I chose this location to do my physical therapy, if you’ve been recently injured I highly recommend giving their team a try!

The facility is local for me so when I needed some PT after a surgery I tried this location out. Glad I did! I’ve been working with my therapist, Nora Corbett for just a few sessions and have already noticed considerable improvements in my recovery. Nora takes the time to listen, ask questions and derive a personal plan with goals to get better, faster. She is extremely knowledgeable in her profession. GO HERE for the best care, and ask for Nora!

The staff at W & N was knowledgeable and very helpful in treating my shoulder injury. The exercises I was given produced great results. Scheduling (and rescheduling) appointments was always easy, and would recommend sessions here to anyone needing physical therapy.

I sought some help for what I believed was carpal tunnel in my hands, and Nora, the physical therapist, noticed that I had tingling throughout my hands, not just the first three fingers, which meant it was something else. (who knew!?) After four weeks or so working my back and spine the tingling was reduced by more than half. Back to what it was before, so to speak, as Ive been a writer for years. Great work by Nora!

I have had 3 sessions at Wallace & Nilan so far, and I'm really enjoying them even though each session gets more challenging. My therapist Nora Corbett is wonderful, and really helps me to feel better. I'm very satisfied and very glad I chose this location!

Wallace and Nilan in Fairmount is an excellent PT facility. The space is inviting and organized, and the staff members are engaged and helpful. Bill Pinkerton, the physical therapist, is a knowledgeable, thorough, and committed professional. In addition to his proven expertise, he also has an open, friendly manner which makes you feel welcome and at ease.

Bill Pinkerton and his team at the Fairmount office are the best. As a physical therapist and fitness trainer, Bill understood my need to be able to continue to work/workout, even with an injured shoulder. His ability to treat the whole person, not just the injury, is one of the reasons I refer clients in the Fairmount neighborhood to him. He is able to make a speedy and accurate assessment and get patients on the road to recovery quickly. Highly recommended.

If you are committed to help your body: that's the place to work on it. I've been working on my migraines for a month. As a result: they are less frequent and intense. Why: twice per week I get neck manipulations on the trigger point that usually radiate pain + back exercises that have helped develop muscles not usually solicited. Hours are convenient enough to not impact work day.

I had two injuries this year and with Bill’s help I am back in the gym 5-6 days a week, back to my social activities, and with almost no pain. He is consistent and dedicated to his patients and explains everything very well and answers all your questions so that you understand your care. The staff is so warm and nice as well making this a great and positive environment to heal and get better!

I'm so grateful to the whole team for the thoughtful attention to the recovery of my running injury. The program that was created was tailored specifically to my needs and I felt listened to and cared for. I could barely walk when I started the program and I feel great now. I also have a library of stretches and exercises I can do on my own to prevent the injury from happening again.

Bill Pinkerton and his staff are good people. Bill created a plan to meet me where I was at and modified it as I progressed towards recovery: he was completely in tune to any physical developments along the way. Thank you!

I'm delighted to say that the treatment I received from Bill & the team at the Fairmount Wallace & Nilan helped me avoid more invasive treatments for my Achilles tendon. It's a convenient location and nice space, but most of all, it's PT expertise that can be trusted. I'll sort of miss going, but I'm thrilled to have graduated from PT and getting back to running. Highly recommend!
