Physical therapy for orthopedic injuries, exercise management and neurological and balance disorders will be offered at the Plum Community Center starting Thursday.

WESTARM Physical Therapy and Homecare of Lower Burrell will move into the community center's fitness area. The services will be performed by Tanisha Gorny and Gary McMahon, both licensed physical therapists.

“It's a great opportunity for our folks to have that availability,” said Nina Segelson, the community center's executive director.

Segelson said WESTARM's clientele will mainly be seniors but the services are available to the public.

Therapy is offered by appointment on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8 to 5 p.m. and 8 to 12 p.m. on Tuesday and Friday.

WESTARM is a Medicare-certified rehabilitation agency with nine facilities located throughout the region. It has been in business for 34 years.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
