Priyanka Jariwala, PT, MS - Clinical Director

She subsequently continued her education at the University of Pittsburgh and obtained a post professional Master of Science in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences with a concentration in musculoskeletal physical therapy.

Priyanka specializes in orthopedic and sports related injuries and is an expert in human kinesiology. Using an approach called Selective Functional Movement Analysis (SFMA), Priyanka is able discern subtle abnormalities in a individual's movement and target the tissues that are causing the abnormalities. Many times, movement abnormalities are caused by restrictions in the connective tissues and Priyanka frequently utilizes specialized instrumentation to effectively loosen these tissues. She also employs a wide variety of creative exercises that help restore mobility, strength and function. Priyanka is very motivating and while she develops a caring relationship with her patients, she will push her patients to maximize their potential.
