For Immediate Release

Paster Physical Therapy now Physical Therapy & Wellness Institute (PTW) Orthopedic rehab center celebrates the final transition from Paster Physical Therapy to PTW

In July of 2012, Mr. Larry Paster, Licensed Physical Therapist and 30 year Glenside practice owner, suddenly passed away; leaving behind a long history of clinical successes and many patients whose lives he helped change. Dr. Tom Peff, Orthopedic Surgeon, states, "If you had a bad back, knee, or shoulder, he not only got you better, but made you laugh, cry, and walk away with more than a great feeling. He left you feeling motivated that no matter what obstacles you had to overcome, he would help guide you towards higher levels of performance and function, regardless of the roadblocks".

Blessed to chosen to carry on the Paster legacy in quality, one-on-one care, the folks at The Physical Therapy & Wellness Institute have slowly incorporated systems consistent with their own award winning Physical Therapy, very similar to Mr. Paster's practice. The final pieces of the puzzle were recently put in place with incorporation of electronic medical records and the promotion of Doctor Tyler Haggerty to the Clinical Supervisor position. "Tyler has been with the company for some time, and brings a level of energy, passion, and professionalism that the Glenside patients were used to when Larry was running the show", states Robert Babb, President of The Physical Therapy & Wellness Institute. Abington Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Peff further explains, "I can't think of a better clinical crew in the area to continue the Larry legacy than the folks at PTW, long known for their commitment to quality care and great outcomes".

Come celebrate the final transition with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Glenside PTW, located at 2285 Cross Road, Glenside, just next to Sloan Toyota on July 11th at noon. Light lunch and beverages will be served. This is open to the public, and all prior patients from the Paster Physical Therapy practice are encouraged to attend.
