I am very glad that I had the opportunity to receive care from Nora and the rest of the staff here, who were all very professional and friendly. They never missed a beat. They took time to properly teach the exercises I needed and I have continued them on my own. My shoulder is no longer in pain daily. The environment was relaxed. I enjoyed and looked forward to the daily trivia and funky Fridays🎶.Wish you all the best.

I have been working with Phil Jamora for a week now, and my knee is already feeling better. Wallace & Nilan was recommended to me by a friend. I went there on his recommendation and haven't regretted it. It appears they have set me on the right physical therapy path.

I had bad vertigo due to an ear problem. Apparently the fix is certain set of movements. Nora was great and was able to run through these movements with me. After one session the problem in my ear was fixed and the vertigo stopped. The rest of the staff seemed very nice and helpful.

I used Wallace and Nilan's physical therapy services for recovery assistance from an automobile accident. The location itself is conveniently located just off Manayunk's Main Street in a modernized industrial building, with large windows to allow ample daylighting, high ceilings, and overall a pleasant space to inhabit. The staff there are absolutely top-notch, both in helping patients determine the best means of recovery as well as the welcoming and enjoyable atmosphere they foster. You're warmly greeted by name when you come in and they make a point to get to know each patient. They change up the music every day (or even ask for what you're into) and put up fun trivia / brain teasers. I also greatly appreciated every time they helped me reschedule an appointment in case I was not able to make my previously scheduled one. A big thank you to Phil as my regular therapist, and every other staff member (Neil, Jake, Annie, Nora, Brandi, Elizabeth, and Bob) who helped ensure I got the care I needed.

After my spine surgery, my surgeon recommended that I do physical therapy. I used Wallace and Nilan and it was the best move I made. I went from not being able to put my shoes on by myself to feeling back to my normal self. Phil was my therapist and over the course of my recovery we worked to slowly, safely and steadily get me back to my old self. Each session gave me more confidence and had me looking forward to living my life again. The space is great, good music and they don’t book too many people at the same time. I always had Phil’s attention while working out and the therapists are there to give tips, correct your form and to make sure you are avoiding further injury. I can’t thank Phil and Wallace and Nilan enough. 100% would recommend.

I had such a wonderful experience at Wallace and Nilan in Manayunk. My physical therapist was Nora and she was amazing! This was my second time tearing my ACL and I have definitely bounced back fast the second time with Nora’s help. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a physical therapist!

I am writing this as a physician affiliated with Temple hospital.Wallace and Nilan PT is fantastic! I have had PT in several other places and this is by far the best. The staff is very professional and friendly. The first thing you notice is that the therapists are all dressed in khakis and nice shirts. They greet you and make you feel welcome. They have lively upbeat music playing that helps motivate you (Friday is funky Friday). Neil was my therapist and he worked so diligently with me to fix my shoulder. He wanted to see me better as much as I wanted to be better. The whole staff worked together and was always aware of when you finished a particular exercise. You never stood around waiting for someone. When you felt bad that you didn’t do your home exercises they reassured you that they were not the PT police. Neil was able to solve my shoulder issue even though it wasn’t a straightforward fix.I actually look forward to PT. I feel like I’m part of a family. Since parking is difficult in Manayunk, they give you a paper to put in your windshield and you can park in the lot right across the street.I highly highly recommend them!

Wallace and Nilan is excellent! Would highly recommend!
23:24 31 Jan 22
I had an excellent experience with Nora for my shoulder injury(torn labrum). The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly but the exercises are effective! Nora is very knowledgeable and takes the time to understand what works for each patient. Would definitely recommend to friends and family!

Neil and the team at Wallace and Nilan in Manayunk were very helpful with my recover from severe plantar fasciitis and heel pain! The exercises along with stretches and taping made my symptoms go away after a few months of Physical Therapy. I would highly recommend Neil and his team at Wallace and Nilan!

Absolutely 10/10 - Elizabeth helped me strengthen and stretch to get rid of some running-related hip pain.

I am very pleased with my experience having my achilles tendonitis treated here. After leaving an appointment inquiry online a few months ago, I was almost immediately contacted to schedule and have been going to twice weekly sessions since. All the staff are polite and efficient. Nora is a wonderful PT who constantly adapted my treatment as needed to get me back running pain free. She is very knowledgable, patient, and friendly, and I would definitely recommend her and the other staff as well.

I cannot imagine having a better PT experience than what was provided from the wonderful people at Wallace & Nilan. The facility itself is well-equipped to handle a myriad of therapy types, and was always neat and organized. The one thing you cannot get anywhere else is the people, and subsequently the culture they provide. I thought the studio would feel more like a doctor's office: sterile and cold, but it was anything but that. My PT, Liz, was always warm, engaging, and energetic. She somehow made waking up early to work out an injured shoulder fun to the point where I actually looked forward to going each day. The rest of the staff had a similar energy which helped take my mind off of the challenging workouts Liz had me doing. Although my injury was not catastrophic, it became clear that it was not healing on its own, and only showed signs of progress with the aid of Liz and the rest of the team at Wallace & Nilan. I hope I do not get injured again, but if I do, I know I have a place than can get me back to normal. Thank you again Liz!

Great PTs and staff, great clinic! They helped me get rid of my pain, and I'm very grateful!
13:15 23 Sep 21
I would definitely recommend Wallace & Nilan Physical Therapy to anyone having pain that needs to be addressed. The Staff is knowledgeable, professional, caring & kind. They have even taught me certain exercises to do while at work and out & about to alleviate any pain or discomfort I may be having. Thank you to everyone at Wallace & Nilan Physical Therapy! 🤗
12:13 08 Sep 21
I have been attending PT here for about a month. I was nervous to get back to PT but Nora, Neil and all the staff and students are welcoming, knowledgeable and nonjudgmental. I have had a excellent experience so far and strongly recommend this PT practice.
17:56 24 Aug 21
Friendly, knowledgeable & caring staff
14:22 24 Jun 21
I had a wonderful experience rehabbing a running injury at Wallace and Nilan. Everyone there was very friendly and professional. Nora was amazing, extremely knowledgeable, and always took the time to listen to my concerns. Would highly recommend coming here!
22:58 13 Jun 21
Great therapy great people great personality i would recommend them I feel 100% thank you for all you did 😊 I gonna miss ya ya buddy Tommy mack!!! ❤
20:24 26 May 21
Everyone here is very friendly and genuinely care about their patients. I've been coming 3 nights a week for just under 2 months and have resolved neck pain and stiffness, wrist pain, back pain and stiffness and also knee problems. If you are struggling with pain this is where you want to be.
22:13 19 May 21
My therapist Brandi is simply answered prayer. Her knowledge of the body & injuries is stunning. She has diagnosed me long before the mri's/xrays & is right every time. She's kept me out of surgery TWICE!
13:32 19 May 21
Friendly and knowledgeable staff helped me regain the mobility and confidence I feared I’d be unable to achieve.
14:00 27 Apr 21
Nora helped me overcome my upper back pain and inflexibility. She provided manual therapy that improved my range of motion and assigned exercises to help me build strength and prevent future pain. Working with Nora has made me more aware of my body, how it moves, and the potential weak spots. I am grateful for my time with her, and would recommend her without hesitation.
20:40 13 Apr 21
For the majority of February I experienced awful neck tension and tension headaches that I could not fix myself. The pain was constant and unwavering and it caused me a lot of anxiety and discomfort. My friend suggested PT at W&NPT and I will never regret it. I went twice a week for a month and the headaches and pain gradually but surely lessened. While the pain is not 100% gone, my PT gave me the exercises I need to quickly lessened the pain, which I credit to their PT sessions! If you need PT, I highly recommend W&NPT!!
15:37 11 Apr 21
I absolutely love Wallace & Nilan Manayunk. I know it sounds kind of excessive for a physical therapy place, but I cannot recommend them enough. Everyone who works there is SO friendly, and they really know what they're doing when it comes to PT. I really appreciate the time and effort they put in with every patient. I truly look forward to going to my appointments. If you need a physical therapy spot, go here!!

Nora was great at helping me heal and manage my sciatica and back pain. I've seen numerous PTs in the past, but saw the most improvements in my condition here at W&N. Nora's use of manual therapy and her positive guidance helped me along my journey to get working/moving pain free.

Caring and skilled therapists in clean bright setting. Highly recommended.
15:20 10 Mar 21
I’ve had multiple ongoing injuries for about 3 years now...shoulder, neck, knee. Within that time I’ve had 10 months worth of physical therapy at 2 other companies. No one put the effort in to investigate the route issues of what had been going on and so I never truly got better.So in November of 2020 I ended up at Wallace & Nilan. I guess the 3rd time is the charm because it’s definitely been my best PT experience to date. For once, I feel listened to. I work primarily with Nora and but also with Brandi because they care enough to collaborate, investigate, and approach it together from their their own personal knowledge and experience bases. They make a great team!! They are caring listeners and problem solvers. Not only am I finally improving but I also just genuinely enjoy being there!I can’t recommend Wallace and Nilan or Nora and Brandi enough.
02:02 04 Mar 21
This was my first experience in physical therapy and I worked with Nora for a couple months on my IT Band! I was pretty worried about it since prior to physical therapy I could barely walk. Nora was patient, helpful and kind! Highly recommend and will return if I have any future issues.
20:21 22 Feb 21
Very clean and friendly staff! Christian and Ariel helped so much with my ankle. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for PT!

I had heart surgery this summer and and needed to start cardiac rehab but wanted something online. My doctor's office recommended contacting Brandi Feinberg at Wallace and Nilan in Manayunk. I am into my third week of therapy and could not be more pleased. This has exceeded my expectations. In addition to the cardio, I am dealing with back/rib pain resulting from the surgery. Brandi has worked out a program and I am feeling much better and am confident this was the right decision. Even the video conferencing has been great. I could not recommend them more highly.
21:51 27 Aug 20
I would give this place five stars based on my experience there. From my first phone contact with them (Brittany) to terminating my treatment in the end, everything had been professional, pleasant, and enjoyable. The atmosphere in there was so relaxed and positive. I felt like I was not only getting treatment for my physical problems, but also going on a mini retreat for my mind. The conversations that took place there were warm, fun, and inspiring -- we talked about topics all the way from tips for health, self care, things to celebrate, to social justice issues. It was a great experience. My PT, Nicole, is knowledgeable and skillful about what she practices. She is also very attentive to my needs and modifies methods in treating me. She has a bubbly personality and radiates positive energy, which in itself is very healing. Thank you!

I had an absolutely wonderful experience at Wallace & Nilan in Manayunk. I have been suffering with a lower back injury on and off for years due to many years in gymnastics. It got to the point where I couldn’t even walk without being in pain. I did a lot of research and came across Wallace & Nilan. From the minute I walked in, the entire staff was warm and welcoming and I knew I had chosen the perfect place to heal and recover. Zach was my physical therapist, and not only was he professional and tremendously knowledgeable, he was kind, compassionate, and genuinely took the time to address all of my concerns. He came up with a series of exercises for me to do in physical therapy and at home to help me regain my strength and alleviate my pain. With his patience and guidance I am now back to my normal routines and I finally feel like myself again. If I should ever need to go to physical therapy again in the future, there is no other place I will choose except them, and will recommend them to anyone I know seeking physical therapy. Incredible staff, positive atmosphere, excellent equipment, flexible hours, and clean facility – They truly are the best. Thank you Zach and everyone at Wallace & Nilan!
18:07 24 Feb 19
The best physical therapy I've ever been to! The staff is really friendly and helpful while still challenging you. They're very supportive and are willing to work with your body's limitations.
13:47 15 Oct 18
Took my daughter here to rehab her knee. Zach was awesome and she's stronger than before her injury. Thanks!
16:11 10 Apr 18
I have had a great experience doing physical therapy here.I went in not being able to run or do my normal workout routine, and now I’m feeling like myself again.The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly and always try to make the session fun.If I ever have to do PT again I would definitely come back here.
16:08 22 Feb 18
Went here after a rotator cuff surgery.Was very well greeted from an amazing staff.They really had a plan for this kind of recovery and made it fun while taking the recovery journey.Through hard times to light, they were always there, supporting and motivating.Once I reach good mobility they kicked in the hard gear and really got my strength back as well.After 5 months I was considered 100% recovered, but due to knowing me I stuck around another month to be sure I did the right excersises and weights, not getting carried away.Location is great, and they have parking, which is a great plus in a place like Manayunk.Staff is very knowledged and super nice.Definitly recommend this place.
15:35 22 Feb 18
This place is great. Brandi and Zach have truly done a masterful job in rehabilitating me from an injury where I had lost a lot of mobility in my right arm. I am gradually getting more and more motion back as the program moves along. Thanks much!
18:03 26 Nov 17
What a great place!! All staff are friendly, highly qualified and know how to brighten your day while treating your problem.As an Occupational Therapist, I feel especially qualified to write an accurate review...Brandi is a phenomenal PT, who uses all the latest and most effective techniques to reduce your pain, heal your injury, treat chronic and acute back, leg, neck and upper body injuries, complete with a tailor-made exercise program for your specific condition. She will get you in the best shape prior to hip, knee or back surgery, and provide practical suggestions for lifestyle adaptations to compliment therapy. I have been treated by Brandi for 3 different conditions in the past 2.5 years, and wouldn't think of going anywhere else.
01:12 05 Oct 17
This is my second time using Wallace and Nilan for PT. Both times have been great. Professional staff.
20:22 27 Sep 17
I can"t say enough about Wallace & Nilan in Manayunk. It is such a positive atmosphere to rebuild and heal. I have been to several physical therapy institutions in the past, but this one stands out among them all. Excellent caring instruction and supervision. Upon leaving a session, I always know how to exercise at home.
13:23 23 Aug 17
Me one year ago: 74 years old, just diagnosed with neuropathy, most seriously in legs, have fallen on sidewalk 3 times, scared of seriously hurting myself (paranoid about smashing my head), feeling helpless, ignorant about how to protect myself. Can the effects of disease be slowed down? can I learn to safely live with it? who can answer my questions? who can coach me and physically help make me better able to continue my physical activity and live safely.Me today: 75 years old, feeling competent and confident as I walk with strong strides, exercise, navigate crowded. obstacle filled streets and rooms, sit down, stand up, and safely handle stairs.I use the physical therapists at the Manyunk location of Wallace & Nilan (they have three other sites) - Brandi Feinberg is the clinical director who can answer any question about insurance coverage and maintains a flexible, responsive staff -- sometimes I feel as if I'm the only client and everybody's schedule is organized around my needs.My boundlessly knowledgeable and energetic physical trainer is Dr. Katie Histon - her doctorate is in physical therapy - she is relentlessly energetic and encouraging. When I discover something new about my movement, Katie takes all the time I need to figure out and explain what is happening in my body and how to teach it to adjust. The exercises she does with me in the therapy facility are specific to my particular condition (of which there are many facets) - and she provides me with homework so I can reinforce and heighten the value of my training. The clarity of the value of the work I do with Katie is highly motivating.By its nature, neuropathy will be with me for the rest of my life. I completed a course of treatment with Katie, and several months later returned for a series of sessions. I am feeling good on my own now, but it is reassuring to know that when I need it, Katie and Wallace and Nilan are there for me.I am no longer scared.
19:22 20 Aug 17
I've been going here on and off for more than a year for an injury and it's a great place. The environment is friendly and the people are amazing. Katie is a wizard at what she does!
11:26 28 Jul 17
Excellent care; knowledgeable and skilled physical therapists, fully equipped center (e.g., cardio machines, weight machines, mats, bands, PT tools, heat and cold therapy), ability to diagnose, treat and when necessary make quick referrals to allied health care professionals. Wide range of insurance coverage and off street parking!
01:09 20 Jul 17
It was the best place I could have found! The staff is unbelievably educated, encouraging, and kind. They have helped me more than I can say, not just physically but emotionally as well. Katie has gone above and beyond to help me improve and support me!
17:31 18 Jul 17
I had a wonderful experience with Wallace and Nilan. Their staff are professional and welcoming and really tried to get to the bottom of the pain I'd been dealing with. My therapist Katie is the absolute best and refused to give up on my case when we couldn't quite figure out what was triggering my pain. She tried different things and customized my care based on my body type and history while encouraging me throughout the process. After years' of managing back, butt and leg pain, she has given me more insight than any other medical professional I've worked with. The only drawback is that when Katie gets you feeling better, you have to stop seeing her! Other pluses about W+N are the pleasant atmosphere, the music, the parking (in Manayunk!), and the early morning hours. Can't say enough good things!
21:17 14 Jul 17
Katie Histen has been wonderful to work with. She has taken the time to learn about my condition and does everything she can to help me. She has helped me tremendously over the last year and a half and has gone above an beyond anything I could have asked for!
22:53 13 Jul 17
I had such a Wonderful experience at Wallace and Nilan, in Manayunk! All of the staff are incredible and really work with you to meet your needs! The hours are super flexible! I could not have asked for better care!:)
22:45 13 Jul 17
Great place Friendly but most of all well educated in their field. They made my life healthier, when I had my first visitCouldn't even turn myself over but with the expertise knowledge but most of all kindness exhibited by Katie Histen I got myself back in shape. I will always be appreciative and recommend all of them highly. Janet S
