About Us

The difference starts from the moment you walk through our door…

Brian Hartz started HARTZ Physical Therapy in 2000 with one office in Lititz, PA. Despite graduating only a few years earlier, Brian was motivated by his vision to create a clinic with 4 main goals:

Valued Employees

This is first and foremost at HARTZ PT. We take a vested interest in each of our employees, ensuring they have the tools to achieve not only their career goals, but also their personal goals.

Excellent Patient Care

We focus on hands-on, manual therapy as well as a customized and progressively challenging therapeutic exercise program in order to ensure patient success.  A third and most valuable part of our plan ensures our patients are educated about their care and how they can continue progressing at home during therapy and well beyond discharge.

Quality Customer Service

Our staff is trained to create a relaxed environment where patients are always treated with respect and kindness.

Community Service

Our company culture stresses the importance of giving back to our community and in fact, often rewards employees who do just that!

With a focus on these 4 main goals, Brian has built HARTZ PT to include 6 clinics in Lancaster County.  With a reputation for excellent patient care, we are grateful to have been recognized as Lancaster County’s Choice for physical rehabilitation for 23 years in a row through the Lancaster Newspaper’s Readers’ Choice Awards.

Our dedication to your experience is unwavering: you — and your recovery — are our first priority. We invite you to Experience the Difference with us!

"I was at other PT facilities (four!). Simply not comparable to Hartz, where the team that feels like family and I get full attention to my individual needs with the programs tailored to me and my specific needs. To Brian Hartz – Great Leadership!"

Dan, Lititz Office Patient

“I’ve had a herniated disc for 13 yrs and have seen quite a number of PTs. Hartz is by FAR Superior to any others in the area. They are patient, caring and they listen to what you have going on. Couldn’t ask for better. Keep up the awesome work!”

Andy, Lititz Office Patient

"I chose Hartz Physical Therapy because of its convenient location, but I have been very pleased with the quality of their treatment and their professionalism. Having had physical therapy at other venues previously, I am impressed by how personable the entire Hartz staff is to their clients. I have received phenomenal care through three rounds of physical therapy at HARTZ PT."
