Premier PT Changes Lives through (Not-so-Random) Acts of Kindness
Bridget McCormack didn’t set out to change the world. But that’s, in fact, what she is doing.
McCormack, a physical therapist in Premier Orthopaedics’ Broomall location, has lived a life vested in others’ well-being. She works hands-on with patients recovering from surgery or injury, and takes pride and pleasure in seeing them regain independence. “When people come to us, their needs are more than physical,” she says. “They want to feel like themselves again. Therapy is not just ‘muscles and bones.’ We treat the whole person to help rehab the injury and get them back to where they want to be.”

Local Preacher Feels Better than Ever with Premier
When you’ve spent your life helping others see the good in everything around them, you tend to know a thing or two about where that goodness comes from.
West Norriton resident Richard (Dick) Sarley, a retired pastor, has no desire to slow down his active lifestyle. Family and community are important to Dick and his wife, Arline. They both come from large families and have children and grandchildren on the West Coast. But in 2007, when hip pain started slowing him down, Dick knew he’d have to do something about it.

Dr. Charles Hummer: Preventing Knee Injuries
As an orthopaedic surgeon with a sub-specialty in Sports Medicine, I often hear this complaint from family, friends and patients. Both acute injuries and overuse injuries can cause knee pain and dysfunction in athletes of all ages. So, what are common knee problems? How can they be prevented? And, what treatments are there for common knee pain?
The most common knee problem I see in my practice is “ kneecap pain” or patella-femoral pain syndrome (PFPS). The kneecap (patella) acts as a lever to allow the front thigh muscles to extend the knee, allowing us to stand upright and walk. The force generated through the kneecap increases geometrically as the knee bends in the standing position—in full squat there’s about seven times body weight pressure on the kneecap joint surface. Kneecap pain occurs because of this pressure, and because of subtle misalignment of the kneecap in the groove of the femur, caused by injury or change in level or type of activity—a new sport, lots of kneeling.
As an orthopaedic surgeon with a sub-specialty in Sports Medicine, I...

Dr. Zachary Hauser, M.D. discusses Medical Acupuncture
What is it?
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This procedure is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points.
How does it work?
The classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues.
