Lancaster Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine

Lancaster Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine is an independently owned and operated private practice clinic. We are truly vested in each individual patient encounter, as well as within the Lancaster community. Our commitment to you is evident in our treatment model: strict, one-on-one care. This allows for maximal patient-therapist interaction to create more hands-on time and faster treatment progressions while leaving fewer questions unanswered.

We aim to provide a supportive, evidence-based, and active rehab environment with a focus on consistency of care (same clinician every visit) and supreme interaction with the clinician (appointments on the hour).

Our approach is straight-forward and begins with a comprehensive evaluation and individualized treatment plan that we tailor to your goals, allowing the best current practice models and evidence dictate our strategy. Recovery is then an active process, requiring the patient/client to engage in all aspects of care. We have a hands-on style that is unmatched.

Everyone needs to perform, no matter if you are an athlete eager to return to competition, an injured worker trying to return to your occupation, or a person who enjoys the long walk to the mailbox each day but now has difficulty with this task. Our treatment pushes you toward your performance demands, whatever they may be. We invite you to place your health into our compassionate hands...

Unique Services in Soft Tissue Treatment

Lancaster Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine is the only clinic within 60 miles to offer ASTYM treatment. These techniques, developed in the Midwest, seek to revolutionize the treatment of soft tissue disorders.

Prompt Appointments and Direct Access

We do our best to accommodate patients and provide evaluations within 24 hours. Mic is licensed to practice "Direct Access Physical Therapy," which allows the physical therapist to be the first point of access to care to initiate treatment without a referral from another provider.

New Updated Facility

We have recently remodeled and expanded our facility to include increased private treatment rooms, new equipment, and a large, functional space with turf flooring.  Our spacious clinic provides a professional and friendly community atmosphere for everyone working toward PT goals.


Our facility is easy to reach from West Lancaster, Millersville, New Danville, Mountville, and Columbia. Our clinic is situated conveniently on Millersville Road just south of the intersection of Route 462 (Columbia Avenue) and Route 741 (Rohrerstown Road). Access to our practice is off of Temple Avenue.
