At Rainier Physical Therapy, our philosophy is to treat the body as a whole – instead of just the injured part. Many of the conditions we treat result from a deficiency somewhere else in our musculoskeletal system. This can lead to compensation and injury (pain, weakness, swelling, etc.) at the tissue site, and addressing this injured site alone may not solve an issue in long run.
Our physical therapists in Cranberry Township, PA, provide research-driven treatment in a clean, modern facility. Our clinic’s relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff helps us better achieve our goal of assisting patients in reaching their functional goals.
What Patients Are Saying
“Insurance required that I had to drive past our 'usual' PT guy that we've had so much success with and go to Rainier. Then I met Tom (who, at my age, looked mighty young!!) and he's just the nicest fella! And He. Knows. His. Stuff! I honestly didn't thing PT would make much difference; I was so wrong! The exercises he showed me helped tremendously... Moral of the story: Don't hesitate to go to Rainier.”
– Deborah R.
“I just completed a course of therapy for hip bursitis at Rainier Physical Therapy. The treatments were very beneficial. The atmosphere there is very relaxed and convivial. Everyone, starting with Tom the owner and therapist and extending to all the assistants and staff, is very friendly and supportive, as well as being extremely knowledgeable in their field and technically competent. I would recommend Rainier to anyone in need of physical therapy.”
– Jim S.

Tom Namey - Owner
Physical therapist Tom Namey is the owner of Rainier Physical Therapy. He received his Master’s Degree from the University of Pittsburgh. While in graduate school he met his future wife, Christine, who is also a physical therapist. He moved shortly after graduating school to the Seattle, Washington, area, hence the name “Rainier Physical Therapy.”
The pull of Pittsburgh has brought his family back to the area in 2010, and he is excited to take his experience of treating patients on both sides of the United States and apply it to this new endeavor. Opening Rainier Physical Therapy in 2012, Tom finds that Cranberry Township is a great area that is growing in population and medical needs. Tom acts as an educator and trainer to help his patients understand and resolve their condition. And, on most days of the week, you can visit with the clinic dog Oso, who is more than happy to let you give him a pat on the head.
