Our Mission:

There is power in working together and strength in numbers. CrushPD Fitness and HARTZ Physical Therapy partnered with each other to offer the Lancaster County Parkinson’s community a one-two punch with the best in preventative care, hope and support. Our teams have a passion for Parkinson’s research and consistently stay up to date on the newest therapies and exercises to treat our patients and clients. It is this mutual passion that launched our partnership to work together in support of the needs of the Lancaster Parkinson’s community.

We want to help you understand your body, your health and that daily exercise and regular physical
therapy is as important as changing the oil in your car.  We are also here to introduce you to other professionals who are experts in their field, as well as other people with Parkinson’s Disease who are always willing to share their journey.  There is life outside of Parkinson’s disease. If you or a loved one is suffering from Parkinson’s, allow us to be part of your journey. We will help you fight to regain control of your life.
