East Suburban Sports Medicine Center to celebrate their 40 Year Anniversary in May!

East Suburban Sports Medicine Center (ESSMC) Physical Therapy has been serving the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh since 1984. Founded on May 15th, 1984, with its original location in Monroeville to currently having eight locations across Allegheny and Westmoreland counties (Monroeville, North Huntingdon, Murrysville, Penn Hills, Penn Township, Plum, Greensburg, Kiski).

Orthopedic care remains the primary service, however over the past five years new and exciting programs have been added, which allows for care to many more types of patients. They now offer Neuro Rehab which includes LSVT Big and LSVT Loud Programs (Parkinsons), Vestibular, Concussion and Speech Therapy. Other therapy services include Pelvic Health, Lymphedema, Hand Therapy, and a program unique to ESSMC called “Freedom from Chronic Pain” which breaks away from the traditional role of Pain Management and focuses on Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT) to eradicate pain all together!

ESSMC has been a Monroeville Chamber of Commerce member for over 17 years and finds the rewards having been a part of the Chamber and community of Monroeville for such a long time. “Our partnership with the Chamber has been invaluable in promoting our brand to the community. The annual events are so well run and provide wonderful opportunities for networking and promotions.”

ESSMC President John Bonaroti on what it means to celebrate 40 years of service to the region, “We are so proud to be celebrating 40 years of service in the East communities, and we are grateful for all the wonderful relationships that we have established over the years. We are now treating the third generation in a lot of families, which is really cool. “

Over the past 40 years, ESSMC’s clinicians and therapy services have built quite a reputation as they are 5-Star rated with over 1000 reviews on Google Business and receive many patient testimonials attesting to their World Class customer service that is the backbone of the organization. ESSMC currently employs over 70 employees between front office and clinical staff.

ESSMC is proud to serve the local communities and has provided Athletic Training services to Plum and Gateway for 40+ seasons and more recently added Kiski Area in 2021.
