Great place for PT. I started with lower back/hip pain and left feeling better in a couple short months. All of the guys here are extremely friendly and make you feel like family. They are also very knowledgeable in their field. They try to explain what’s going on in a way that’s easy to understand and they make sure you understand what they’re talking about. If you need PT I highly recommend going and making an appointment with Bob and Mark.
14:15 13 Feb 22
A great team at Glenside. Mark, Tim and all listened and found the right approach to relieve my pain. Would recommend them to anyone, and will use them again if necessary.

Mark and Brandon are excellent. They take the time to understand your needs and push you to be better. I did 12 weeks of therapy with 2 sessions a week and I can confidently say that my ankle would not be as good as it is without Mark.
19:40 28 Apr 21
At every PT session, I was greeted warmly. Mark Romano, Clinical Director, runs a well oiled ship. Tahira Collier, Staff Physical Therapist, is not only extremely knowledgeable but is also friendly and efficient. Brandon, and all the other Clinical Assistants and helpers made my stay beneficial to me.
22:38 26 Apr 21
I would like " T" and all the staff at PTW. I had a fall and tore my Quad Tendon on my left knee. After surgery I started rehab at PTW, they worked hard getting back in shape. I'm sure happy with the Outcome, Thank you PTW in Glenside.
00:32 17 Apr 21
I love going to physical therapy at this place....never thought I would ever say that but they make the session enjoyable--Professional, knowledgeable, and caring...and I actually smile and laugh with them throughout my therapy session--no matter how painful it gets--and I am always better afterwards!!!
23:30 14 Jan 21
Very caring staff. Everyone is friendly. Love the videos they provide to continue doing exercises at home.
23:30 05 Jan 21
Have been working with Mark, Brandon, Jess and Kayla for the last 3 months and have had TREMENDOUS improvements. Would highly recommend.
21:34 10 Dec 20
Internal physical therapy with Kate has been life changing! Absolutely phenomenal. Highly recommend
23:35 20 Oct 20
I feel safe, taken care of, and optimistic after meeting this staff of wonderful people. You can instantly tell they know what they’re doing. They’re very friendly, and the facility is clean and equipped with everything one would need to recover. Glenside is also a really cute neighborhood with a lot of fun things to see and do.

The staff at PTW Glenside are amazing!! Mark, Katie, Jessica and Raneesha really worked together so well to help me resolve my lower back issues so that I was able to do daily tasks without pain. This is pain I've been living with for a long time.After working with this team, (I worked mostly with Mark), I am currently pain free. Mark truly knows what he is talking about and is very knowledgeable. He made me feel very comfortable and knew exactly what I was talking about when I explained the pain I was having. He also knew immediately what exercises I needed to start working on to help alleviate my pain. He was able to give me the individual attention I needed to create a specific program tailored to my needs. The whole team was very professional from the very beginning, Including scheduling appointments and answering insurance questions when needed.The environment was stress free and clean so that all exercises could be completed in a timely fashion. I am so grateful to the PTW Glenside Staff and would highly recommend them to anyone who is experiencing pain.
15:41 20 Jun 20
It has been wonderful; everything truly is "unusually pleasant" and it's a breath of fresh air! I love being in such a supportive atmosphere and being encouraged by everyone there! I feel truly taken care of after each visit and I feel prepared to take on my day because my hopes of getting better and feeling less pain aren't just hopes anymore, but are becoming reality!I love feeling like there's heart in the work of the staff and like they're paying attention. It's so obvious by the way they treat me that they want what I want -- my back pain to go away! :)Great place! I don't have much longer to go...I'm gonna' miss them when I'm done.
16:54 22 Feb 20
Katie and Jessica are a great team at PTW Glenside! Katie was the most empathetic and caring provider I have worked with throughout my postpartum journey. I didn’t even know pelvic floor physical therapy was a thing! She’s compassionate, a great listener, and clinically knows so much about the pelvic floor that I felt so comfortable and confident in her care. She has helped me immensely and I’m so thankful I got to know her. PTW is both extremely professional yet small family feel.
15:06 20 Feb 20
Everyone was so supportive through a long period of therapy. Couldn't have had a better PT experience.
16:20 07 Feb 20
Professional, personal, and caring experience! Mark Romano is a fabulous PT along with Ranesha and Jess! Mark targeted my issues right away and from day one made me feel better. The environment is upbeat and welcoming. I would recommend Glenside PTW without hesitation. They play good tunes too ;)
00:29 01 Feb 20
I have a lot of mobility issues, and have had a lot of experience with physical therapists. Of all the professionals I have met, Mark Romano is the first one to address my problems specifically. Everyone else just gave me generic strengthening exercises, but Mark zeroed in on my specific problems and treated them. We're still working on them, but I believe this is the time I will finally get the therapy I need.Just like everyone else, my experiences with the rest of the staff have uniformly been positive. They are all friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.
15:19 23 Jan 20
Katie helped assess and treat my shoulder injury and now I'm back to 100%.
23:35 16 Jan 20
Ranesha is friendly, welcoming and engaged in what each client is working on and gets them moving along nicely. Katie is well informed on the modalities of treatment, gives one on one time and attention more than any other PT place we have been. They are creative and solve problems to suite each client's needs and personalities. There are so many ways that they don't make you feel like a number, but a welcome individual whom they are invested in for the long haul. It is a community when you walk in the door and you look forward to coming back when you leave.
23:32 16 Jan 20
Everyone on the staff is super nice, knowledgeable, and professional. Making your next appointment is super easy. Mark, Katie, Jess, and the staff are all great people. Would recommend to anyone.
16:22 16 Jan 20
Awesome therapy office. Kind and professional care. I highly recommend PTW.
20:43 08 Jan 20
19:25 11 Dec 19
Every person who works at this office, from the doctors to their assistants, cares about you. They are both professional and personal and I always felt confident and comfortable. Everyone knows when to push you a little harder yet knows immediately when to pull back....no pain allowed. You go in hurting and you come out thinking....hmmm, maybe I can run another marathon or at least walk to the post office. Thank you.
16:41 15 Nov 19
Knowledgeable and personable staff made for a very positive PT experience! I came to PTW Glenside with low expectations with regard to my limited neck mobility. Wow was I surprised by the positive results, as measured by real data. A personalized program and attentive staff made the difference. And we actually had some fun as well.
19:26 03 Oct 19
Dr. Romano is THE BEST sports/orthopedic physical therapist I know in southeastern PA. He is so knowledgeable and compassionate about injury prevention and strength & conditioning. He not only gets people out of pain but makes them physically stronger in every aspect of life.
15:52 08 Aug 19
Great staff amiable and seem to care about my recovery.
19:36 28 May 19
Great staff, they watch, evaluate and re-evaluate your issues and progress, friendly, professional. Very pleased...
13:47 25 May 19
The staff at the Glenside PTW are very friendly and professional. I feel like they are always focused on my therapy and how I'm feeling. Olivia and Mark are a great team. They have done a tremendous job helping me with my pain.
23:04 22 May 19
12:31 17 May 19
The staff is excellent to work with (especially Katie!). They're all super kind and supportive. I felt like the routine built for me was personalized, challenging, and had the ability to increase in difficulty as I got better. Overall, a great experience!

I was out on a trail run 4 weeks ago and did a terrible ankle roll which resulted in a grade 3 tear to my ATFL. Of course this was just terrible timing as I’m in the hiring process for a Police job with a physical fitness test that was scheduled for today. With a script from my podiatrist these guys were sympathetic to my injury and my desire to get healthy enough to complete my fitness test. There was not much wiggle room for recovery for such a painful injury. Mark and his staff put me through a regiment that reduced my swelling, got me off crutches and bearing weight on the injured foot again, increased its strength and improved the mobility of the ankle. Within 4 weeks to the day I went from not being able to walk, with a purple and blue puffy foot that was in excruciating pain, to not only passing my physical fitness test but doing so with competitive scores on my runs. I’m still not at 100% recovered but there is significant improvement and I credit these guys with that. The atmosphere here is very friendly, humorous, and full of support and compassion. I even have a good time conversing and joking around with the other patients. If you’re broken, have these guys fix you! I was terrified I took myself out of the running for the employment I seek. These guys have kept that ambition alive!

Highest recommendations!!! I have suffered from pelvic pain for years now. I found Katie Barnett the very best physical therapist I could have hoped for. Smart, patient, professional, and caring, Katie put me on a program which reduced the pain to the absolute minimum. I would recommend her wholeheartedly for anyone who is seeking help for pelvic pain or any other therapy.
19:41 28 Mar 19
Amazing And Hilarious Staff Who Is Dedicated To Their Job. And Let’s Not Forget That Jess Is Cool Too 😎
18:36 04 Feb 19
Mark is cool 😎
21:13 23 Jan 19
I'm seeing Katie Barnett and i can't say enough great things about her knowledge and interpersonal skills. i've only seen her twice so far and am already amazed at my improvement. She takes all the time i need to make sure i can do my exercises correctly and understand what they are for and ask questions, and she explains what the next session will entail, all the while being extremely friendly, upbeat and encouraging. She's a gem!
16:06 16 Jan 19
Everyone here is well informed, kind, patient and they want to help!
12:47 11 Jan 19
Awesome place! Recovered 100% mobility. Therapist were attentive, thorough and patient. Ranesha was always pleasant and ready for my appointment. Therapist Katie Barnett was so positive and fun to work with. Mark was also great. Thank you to PTW Glenside.
22:19 10 Jan 19
I have been going to PTW Glenside due to knee replacement surgery. The staff is great; very attentive; takes their time with you; thinks of new workouts; hands on and very friendly. You receive measurements of your progress weekly, if not more frequently, since I go 3 times a week. In the past I went to another physical therapy group and PTW Glenside is hands down 100% better than the other group. I am very happy with them. Hoping for a full recovery soon. Peg
21:52 10 Jan 19
The therapists there are wonderful. I’ve worked with Mark, Jessica and Ranesha and they really care about my progress and are so supportive.
19:06 09 Jan 19
Never went to Glenside but Katie met me in Lansdale and changed my life.
16:41 30 Dec 18
Wonderful staff and wonderful help. Katie, Jess, Nesha, and Mark are wonderful, funny, and know exactly what they’re doing. Please come here, it’s not just help, it’s a wonderful experience
21:42 18 Dec 18
I’ve gone to this physical therapy office two different times and every time I come here I always leave feeling like I wish I didn’t have to! All the staff here are so positive and helpful and I love going to PT. I would highly recommend them if you live in the area. It’s a small office, but they have all the necessities to make you feel 100% again.
02:49 13 Dec 18
I attended Physical Therapy at PTW in Glenside for 9 weeks. The entire Staff were professional, knowledgeable, and caring. The facility is clean and well organized. I now attend PTW three times a week for exercise (Silver Sneakers). The Staff developed a plan for me. I feel safe because the Staff is available if I need help or have questions. They also offer educational programs that are pertinent to my problems related to arthritis and balance. This is an outstanding organization. Thank you to Jackie Yee, Alex, Katie, Jessica, Allie, Tyler and all the other staff who have helped me.
19:37 20 Aug 18
This will be my third time going since I had positive results from my first two visits. The staff is pleasant, and very attentive to my needs in keeping me on track with my therapy program for improving.I am now using the center as a gym to further improve on my recovery.I recommend them to everybody who is looking to improve from any misfortunate incident, or occurances.
16:38 15 Aug 18
I tore my ACL andtwo weeks after surgery I started here at my Dr. recommendation and I am beyond happy I did come here! Jackie and all the PTW staff are amazing! My recovery is ahead of schedule and the staff don’t over due your work. I won’t go anywhere else. I highly recommend PTW Glenside for everyone!
15:32 15 Aug 18
Shattered shoulder strengthened & supple.
13:49 08 Aug 18
I have been fortunate enough to hurt both my shoulders granting me the opportunity to work with the PTW staff haha! All jokes aside, minus the shoulder injuries, my experience at the Glenside location with Jackie Yee and her supporting staff has been excellent! Jackie and the entire staff at PTW are knowledgeable and help you recover as quickly as possible. However, the other aspect that makes the Glenside location a great place to have your physical therapy needs taken care of is the customer service and warm & caring atmosphere they provide. They let the patients choose the music for the day and have small physical therapy competitions that make the PT more exciting than just a monotonous routine visit. I would recommend anyone to come to the Physical Therapy and Wellness in Glenside or any of the other surrounding locations!
14:33 25 Jul 18
I've been going to PTW Glenside for years. I've had many surgeries and most recently several injuries and arthritic issues. I've seen Tyler, Jackie Yee and Alex Sable. Jackie Yee has worked with me the most. She has excellent bedside manner, explains why she does move my specific body through its range of motion, and answers all my questions. I can't recommend her highly enough, she is an excellent professional. All the staff are truly concerned about your well being and returning to normal activity or as close as possible. If you need stretching exercises, PT, or script for rehab I strongly encourage you to visit PTW Glenside. You won't be disappointed.
22:58 24 Jul 18
The people that work at this PTWC Glenside are terrific.They all take time to help you with everything your working on in a nice, kind manner. My physical therapist Jackie is really good at what she does and is very knowledgeable about knowing exactly what you will need to do to get back to (normal) . She guides up along each time your there and will add things to your program as needed. You can't ask for anything more than that. I will recommend her to any one I know that needs Pt .Thanks guys.
19:31 24 Jul 18
I have been going to physical therapy at the Glenside site twice a week for the past six weeks. I have made significant progress since first starting. I appreciate the professionalism shown throughout my visits. Jackie always has a hands-on approach, treating each client with a genuine concern for their therapy, progression and well-being. Jackie's efficiency and consistency during my therapy has allowed me to progress slowly, but surely. I sometimes don't quite grasp the proper way to do certain exercises but she patiently works with you, and keeps a watchful eye when not working directly with you. I feel she is valuable to the continued growth and success of The Physical Therapy & Wellness Institute. I would highly recommend others to the Glenside site. I must also commend her assistant, Ali, who also has been very helpful with my therapy. I know once I have completed my therapy, and with continued exercises at home, I will be good as new. Thank you
20:41 21 May 18
The physical therapist and staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and kind. I went from limping and stiff to pain free with an increase in range of motion in 6 weeks. Really a great experience.
23:58 13 Dec 17
I've been to a couple physical therapists before, but my time here has far exceeded all of my previous experiences and expectations. Jackie is very friendly and conversational-- she really makes you feel listened to and taken care of! All of the assistants are sweet & helpful. I'm sad to be feeling better so soon.. going to miss this staff! Going to PT is one of the best parts of my week. :)
22:51 12 Dec 17
I have made so much progress in reducing pain, improving flexibility, and increasing strength from Jackie's skill! Really don't know how she finds those tight spots and elbows them into submission. Above all, I always feel supported and leave feeling better and more hopeful in full recovery. Thank you!
01:49 14 Nov 17
I am so pleased I chose PTW for my therapy services. The staff is caring, professional and so knowledgeable. Best of all I am on my way to recovery thanks to PTW. I highly recommend if you are experiencing pain, mobility issues or have had an injury and its limiting your quality of life!
12:01 27 Oct 17
Staff are very welcoming and I look forward to going there. My tendonitis has improved greatly. Treatment is individualized and adjusts as needed.
00:37 23 Sep 17
I've been here for two different injuries and had great experiences! Staff is excellent, very knowledgeable and attentive, and helped me recover quickly, but also carefully to avoid re injury. I highly recommend!
12:08 16 Sep 17
Went here after a torn ACL and meniscus surgery. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere for rehabilitation. Tyler, Laura, and Tim were great and I recommend them to anyone needing physical therapy.
22:17 23 Feb 17
I had two knee injuries and I went to PTW for both my recovery spells. The staff there are so friendly and always willing to help. I highly recommend Physical Therapy and Wellness in Glenside if you ever need to do Physical therapy.
22:14 23 Feb 17
Total experience absolutely wonderful!From the first time you walk in till your last day there the staff gives you 100+ ℅Staff is focused on a goal....To get you back into game what ever it my be.
12:01 16 Dec 16
I went to PTW in Glenside before and after surgery on a torn labrum and I am more than satisfied with both experiences. Tyler is a good listener and flexible with his patients. His expertise is evident in how thoroughly he answers questions. All the staff is friendly and engaging and creates a pleasant rehab experience. I might not have always agreed with the music they played, but I would sacrifice an occasional Taylor Swift song for the excellent service I received again and again. I truly felt taken care of and would highly recommend PTW in Glenside to anyone who even thinks they might need physical therapy.
23:12 08 Dec 16
The whole staff there were incredibly pleasant. They made me feel comfortable and laugh a ton - even though I was usually there at 7:00 in the morning and I am not a morning person! Before I went there I had been struggling with intense back pain that ended up extending all the way down my leg so that down through my foot would fall asleep and tingle uncomfortably every day. After going here, I have no more pain. I'm finally recovering the flexibility and strength I lost because I was in so much pain. I'm a dancer and I feel so free in my movement now thanks to them! I would highly suggest going here. Tyler and the whole group are just delightful to interact with and will undoubtedly help you. Thank you!
15:40 15 Nov 16
Extremely welcoming, the atmosphere is light and cheerful everyday. Therapist is extremely understanding and relatable, you won't find better care anywhere else. All the staff are extremely helpful and essential in recovery. I'm so glad I went there, there's nothing they can't fix.
21:58 27 Oct 16
If you are looking for exceptional care, as well as a friendly environment, come to the Physical Therapy & Wellness Institute in Glenside. It makes all that hard work and the healing process enjoyable.
17:33 16 Aug 16
PTW tailored to me, addressed my concerns, helped me, managed my pain, and improved my strength. They have a courteous and friendly staff with flexible schedules.
18:06 10 Jun 16
