Cutitta Chiropractic Performs Physiotherapy

If you were to ask yourself what's the difference between physical therapy and physiotherapy, the most common answer would be that physical therapy is a much more exercise-based approach to rehabilitation, while physiotherapy indicates more of a hands-on manual therapy approach to rehabilitation. Our Pittsburgh, PA chiropractors and on-site therapeutic treatments are physiotherapy based and care for patients affected by injury, illness, or disability. Physiotherapy addresses these conditions through movement, manual therapy, education, and advice.

Dr. Cutitta and Dr. Wrye are two skilled professionals who encourage development and facilitate recovery. They enable their patients to stay in work situations while helping them remain independent and able to perform daily tasks. Our Lawrenceville, Greenfield and Squirrel Hill locations specialize in taking a whole-body approach to our patient's general lifestyle, ensuring that their wellbeing and overall health are at the forefront.
