WELLNESS REHABILITATION INC.
Meet Cynthia Weiss, PT, CLT-UE
Cynthia Weiss received her Physical Therapy degree from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia in 1986. Her love of dance was her inspiration and the beginning of her interest in rehabilitating movement dysfunctions through manual skills, exercise, and Pilates. Cynthia has been an avid dancer since the age of 5, concentrating on ballet, jazz, and tap. She performed with local dance companies and musical theatre and taught dance classes. Cynthia continues to perform when given performing opportunities at the dance studio.
In 1989, Cynthia began working in a private orthopedic practice, specializing in musculoskeletal injuries, sports medicine, and dance medicine. Through extensive continuing education, she honed her manual skills to include acupressure, joint and soft tissue mobilization, strain and counterstrain. She is also learned in assessing and treating breast cancer. Cynthia became a Certified Lymphedema Therapist completing the Klose training certification for manual lymph drainage and complete decongestive therapy, which includes manual lymph drainage for edema, compression bandaging, and appropriate exercise programs.
In 2001, after many years of experience with Pilates, she became certified through Polestar Education with Brent Anderson. This allowed her to further her passion for rehabilitating movement dysfunctions. In her practice, she is able to spend quality time with you to bring you back to an appropriate state of wellness to achieve your goals of an active, healthy, mobile lifestyle. Cynthia's years of experience allows her to evaluate the root cause of an injury and then rehabilitate the body as a whole. Cynthia also holds a B.A. from American University in Psychology and Spanish studies earned in 1981.

"Following an MRI for low back pain, I was referred to Cynthia Weiss, a physical therapist, for treatment. Little did I know how much I would learn from Cynthia. She started by evaluating my walk, my posture, and, just as important, my breathing. She not only works with the specific area of pain, she addresses the whole person. She started by explaining to me how important it is to strengthen the core muscles (of which I knew nothing). When I started seeing Cynthia I was unable to put any weight on my right leg going up and down stairs. With the exercises Cynthia recommended for me to strengthen the core muscles and proper breathing, within a short time I was once again able to climb stairs without fear of falling. That is only one example of the many ways she has improved my health. I consider myself very fortunate to have found Cynthia and been the recipient of her extraordinary professionalism. Not only is she an excellent physical therapist, she has a vast knowledge of so many things that are part of the healing process. While teaching one how to become healthier through exercise, her joyful personality and patience also contributes to making it a pleasant activity. I would highly recommend Cynthia Weiss to all who are serious about improving their quality of life through proper exercise. There is no one I know more committed, more knowledgeable than Cynthia."
