What we treat

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.

After completing a round of physical therapy elsewhere with little results, I was hesitant to go back for round 2. I started at Wallace & Nilan with few expectations; I was unable to walk 2 blocks at that time. I told my PT, Eddie, that my goal was be able to walk to and from PT (about a mile). 10 appointments later, I did just that! The entire staff at W&N is so attentive and wonderful. Eddie, Katie, Kevin, and Jesse take physical therapy to a new level. I’ve never experienced such great care and bedside manner. They should teach everyone! Their approach is revolutionary! I wouldn’t be able to walk today without their amazing help! Thanks!

Couldn't ask for a better physical therapy! I spent my first 5 months following ACL repair at a close-by physical therapy, not having much progress and struggling with chronic pain. I made the switch here, and within weeks I was improving. After a few months I was running and even starting to go back to sports. Eddie and the entire crew are knowledgeable and professional. As a patient, who is also a physician and athlete, I couldn't recommend this place enough! Thanks guys!

I first came to Wallace and Nilan after a friend talked me into signing up for a sprint triathlon and I injured myself self-training trying to get in shape. I quickly learned how much more they can offer in addition to excellent treatment of my injury.After my injury healed I chose to have my PT Eddie Sabara continue to work with me on stretching, strengthening and exercising in a safe and healthy way. Eddie is always positive and patient and answers every question and addresses every concern I have.I recommended W & N to a coworker and she is having the same results and positive experience with PT Katie Nichols. The friendly atmosphere and helpful staff are also a testament to Katie as clinic director.Jesse Breitbart (pt aide/front desk) is the third “core member” of this office and will do whatever it takes to help a patient – even tirelessly dealing with issues with your insurance company.This is a great place and Eddie/Katie/Jesse are fantastic professionals and even better people! I highly, highly recommend!

If Jesse could be cloned, the world would be a better place! He is through, easy to contact, understands insurance, and has excellent follow through! Plus, he is kind, understanding, and thorough. Looking forward to a positive outcome with the therapists for my very active, rock climbing and ballet dancing adult daughter!!!

Jesse has to be one of the kindest, most helpful receptionists I've ever worked with. Ended up having a difficult insurance billing situation, which Jesse handled with such patience and rigor. I would go back to this place just for Jesse's customer service.

I began working with the PTs at Wallace & Nilan - Nora and Bill - earlier this month (Feb 2020) and they are clearly interested in finding solutions. Rather than only addressing the issue I walked in with, they explored my previous injuries and are working with me to fix everything that's been damaged in the past.

I had an ACL tear and Kate and everyone else were super awesome during my rehab. They made sure I worked hard and kept mixing exercises up so it wouldn’t be so monotonous. I was able to pass my return to sports test just 7.5 months after surgery and it’s thanks to everyone there!

I was referred by my doctor for physical therapy due to debilitating leg muscle spasms. Katie identified the underlying knee issue and put me on a program to treat both problems. I cannot praise the staff at Wallace & Nilan highly enough, especially Katie and Matt, for their patience, dedication and professionalism. Katie helped me understand what was happening and why, and took the time to answer all of my questions (and held my hand during a few meltdowns too). I strongly recommend this practice.

The PTs at this location are exceptional. I first met with Katie and from the start through my treatment, she provided the best advice, exercises and personal attention. My injury was reocurring and she jumped right in to improve my situation and try other things to help me progress. I even has sessions with Matt and Eddie when Katie was away and my treatment program always moved forward. Everyone is so helpful. The front desk staff and assistants are excellent as well. I'd definitely refer people to this clinic! :)

The staff at Wallace & Nilan have been everything one could hope for in a rehabilitation/healthcare team in all aspects.They have been completely accommodating with flexible schedules changing appointments to fit the patient's needs.Jesse has dealt with any and all billing complications and dealing with insurance taking that responsability away, allowing the patient to focus on the therapy.While all of the Therapists have been very kind and knowledgeable, I was lucky to work with Eddie who I strongly recommend. With longitudinal care, Wallace & Nilan ensures that your therapist takes the time to holistically appreciate you the patient, your goals and full history. Every session gave one on one care, receiving the full attention of the therapist, with a thorough combination of exercises and manual techniques.Working with such caring, fun and supportive staff make you look forward to your therapy sessions, not only to get better, but also to enjoy good company.

I had a bad hamstring injury from rugby and I thought I was out for the next season but the these talented therapists helped me recover quickly. They are friendly and have a great taste in music. As a college student, I still had a manageable schedule since they have flexible times around classes. I am deeply thankful for their help and now I'm back on the field.Ps. They have good weekly trivia questions.

The staff at Wallace and Nilan are outstanding! I had some issues with my insurance initially, but they offered to give me a free consult while we worked to straighten the issue out. Katie showed me some amazing exercises, which made my knee pain drastically improve. Once the insurance was settled, and I had regular sessions, I saw even more improvement. Everyone in the office is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and friendly, and the environment is utterly welcoming and warm.

I've been in and out of physical therapy for much of my life and the group at Wallace and Nilan is nothing short of outstanding. Not only are they incredibly attenenative to each of their patients (you never feel as though your lost in a sea of patients and not receiving engaging, individualized attention), they also have a way of keeping it a fun, upbeat atmosphere which makes the time pass and keeps you motivated.They consistently challenge you, focus on your technique, and change it up as you progress. Katie has been my physical therapist and helped improve my pain levels significantly along with a lot of much-needed strengthening. However, this very much of a team effort-- Katie, Erica, Matt, Bill and Jesse work together as such a great team. They are all amazing! I couldn't be happier with the care I've received and more grateful to my physician for telling me how highly recommended Wallace and Nilan is.

First of all I want to wish Bill a happy birthday. I have been going To PT here off/on for a few years. The staff has always been so very welcoming. Additionally, they remain positive and patient as I struggle to do the exercises correctly. The evaluation that Bill did yesterday was so helpful. I left in much less pain.I just want to offer the highest praise to the entire staff - Matt, Jessie, Erica and of course Bill. Bill is so knowledgeable about his craft. Bill consistently makes me feel like I am his only client. He is always attentive and engages in conversation that puts me at ease. However, he remains focused on his goals for each patient.I cannot say enough about the staff here. I am a rather "reluctant " patient but always feels welcomed and healthier after my session.Thank you all and happy birthday Bill!

Throughout my time here, I have had nothing but wonderful experiences! Physical therapy is not meant to be fun but everyone here has made it fun and easy to attend the sessions. They have been super nice, supportive, very attentive, and extremely helpful. When days were bad, they were there to help me throughout each session.They would encourage me and everyone else which helps to get through every step and through every day. Completing my physical therapy here at Wallace and Nilan in Center City has been the best choice for me and I would recommend anybody to go here! Not only are they a wonderful group of people, the location could not be any better! :)
