Direct Access for services is available and provided by our staff, whom are Doctors of Physical Therapy with Direct Access privileges. Under Pennsylvania state law, you may consult with and be treated by our staff for 30 days prior to needing a physician’s prescription. So give us a call and we'll get started ASAP!!
Most low back complaints do not need advanced imaging prior to initiation of care. Our staff is trained to screen for those candidates for whom Physical Therapy should be the first line of management. Multiple studies over the last 10 years indicate that both cost is less and duration of care is shorter when a Physical Therapist is accessed prior to physician consultation. At Pain Relief and Physical Therapy we work closely with local and regional physicians to ensure complex patients are referred on appropriately and ensure that the majority of patients who do not need advanced studies or imaging are optimally managed to meet their goals.
Coming Soon! Research participants for upcoming studies are always needed.

Established in 1996.
Bryan O'Halloran realized his dream of opening his own physical therapy center in 1996. After working in Australia, the United Kingdom and with several elite teams in Australia (including Australian National Teams for men's and women's LAX, the Geelong Cats in the Australian Football League and the Geelong Supercats in the National Basketball League) he moved to the Virginia, then on to Havertown in Pennsylvania in 1992.
PRPT's first location was in Media, then Concordville, then Havertown. After significant expansion and increased administrative burden, Bryan decided to focus on his core interests in the Havertown office including research into shoulder and neck/back complaints, having published in several academic journals in the last year including "Physical Therapy" and "Manual Therapy.
Addison Lerner worked under Dr. O'Halloran since 2010 and was manager since 2021. In January of 2023, Dr. O'Halloran sold his practice to Dr. Lerner-Lentz to pursue a career in academia. Dr. Lerner-Lentz has always dreamed of opening her own physical therapy practice and is excited to start this new journey.
The O'Halloran family added a furry member to the family in October of 2018. Her name is Gracie and she pops in to say hello all the time!
The entire O'Halloran family is ready for the holidays!
