Manual Therapy (Hands-on Treatment)

Manual therapy is a specialized physical therapy treatment that allows our certified physical therapists to manipulate joints and soft tissue with nothing more than their hands. That’s right – no intimidating equipment or machines, just hands. This form of treatment helps in relieving pain, decreasing restriction, mobilizing joints, reducing swelling, and increasing your range of motion.

Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercise is a great way to restore function and live a pain-free life. Therapeutic exercise provides a multitude of benefits for anyone wishing to restore their strength, endurance, flexibility, or stability. In fact, physical therapy is used as a treatment for any pain, injury, or ailment someone may be facing.

Spinal Manipulation

Spinal manipulation helps relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. It is a gentle, hands-on form of manual therapy that focuses on evaluating and enhancing the spine. Almost every function in your body is directly connected to the health of your spine, and spinal manipulation could effectively provide relief.

Matt Conroy, DPT, COMT

Hello! My name is Matthew Conroy, but please call me Matt. I grew up in Philadelphia, PA but attended college and physical therapy school in central PA at Lebanon Valley College. At LVC I received my Doctorate of Physical Therapy and graduated at the top of my PT class as valedictorian and received the Academic Excellence Award.

I attended LVC for two reasons. First, they had a physical therapy program and second, I was recruited to play division 3 ice hockey. From the age of 10 ice hockey was my passion and the only thing I was interested in. From a very young age my parents and grandfather spent most weekends traveling up and down the east coast taking me to games and tournaments. It was actually an ice hockey injury that exposed me to physical therapy and peaked my interest in the profession. When I was 14 years old I had a severe lower back injury that occurred when I was hit from behind during a game. The injury was very painful and required extensive physical therapy. From proper rehab I was able to return to playing pain free and was able to have a successful college hockey career. It was that experience that got me interested in physical therapy and helped me make the decision to attend physical therapy school.

Since graduating from PT school I have developed a specific interest in manual therapy (what we call “Hands on PT”) to treat orthopedic injuries. I love how manual therapy can make immediate changes in my patients and show them that there is hope. I have continued to seek out and receive extensive training in physical therapy to be able to provide the best possible care to my patients. I am currently participating in a Fellowship program in manual therapy to further develop my skills.

Outside of the clinic, I spend most of my time with my family. I live in Timonium Maryland with my wife Lauren who is also a physical therapist. We have a son, Henry, daughter, Rosemary, and a dog, Gus, who keep us very busy.

Addie Hawley, DPT, OCS, MTC

Hi there, my name is Addie and I am so glad you found us here at Madden and Gilbert PT!

I grew up in Lutherville, MD (just outside of Baltimore), but some of my fondest memories come from summers spent with my family up in Maine. We live on an island called Southport Island, which is located about an hour north of Portland. During my high school summers in Maine, I competed on the Southport Yacht Club Sailing Team. I continue to look forward to spending time up in Maine each summer. 

I first became interested in physical therapy at a very young age. My childhood best friend required extensive PT and OT for several years. I attended some of these appointments with her, and even at my young age, I was truly amazed at the impact therapy had on her life.

I attended University of Mary Washington, in Fredericksburg, VA, where I graduated with a BS in Biology in 2013. While studying at Mary Washington, I competed on the women’s lacrosse team and also coached lacrosse at a local high school. I volunteered in the athletic training room, which was a large part of where my interest in sports rehabilitation began.

I completed my physical therapy education at University of St. Augustine, in St. Augustine, FL, graduating with my DPT in 2016. Since graduation, I earned my Manual Therapy Certification (MTC) from the University of St. Augustine in 2018. I also completed a FastTrack Residency in Orthopedics with the NxtGen Institute and earned my OCS accreditation in 2019.

I love working as a physical therapist. I love using a combination of manual therapy and exercises to help people reach their goals. It is so rewarding when people are able to get back to an activity that they love. I have a special interest in rehabbing athletes and returning them to playing sports.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Veronica Harmon, DPT

Hi! My name is Veronica, and I am one of the physical therapists at Madden and Gilbert Physical Therapy in Shrewsbury. I grew up in the small town of Mercersburg, Pennsylvania but completed my college education in Annville, Pennsylvania. I attended Lebanon Valley College where I received both my Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science and my Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree.

Growing up, I found myself looking for anything to keep me busy and active, which led me to playing multiple sports, including soccer and basketball, as well as marching in my school’s drumline. With all this activity, I found myself surrounded by others constantly getting hurt and having to go through the rehabilitation process. I was always amazed by how well they recovered from their injuries with the help of physical therapy. I knew I always wanted to enter the medical field, and my desire to help others continue doing what they love led me to the PT field.

During my final clinical rotation of PT school at one of the Madden and Gilbert locations, I immediately fell in love with the work ethic, personal connections, and the manual, hands-on techniques that the company prioritized. I love the immediate response that manual therapy provides as well as the impact exercises can have in restoring function! I am so proud to be a part of the team in Shrewsbury, and look forward to helping this community reach their goals!

When I’m not at the clinic, I like to spend my time having game nights and spending time with my family and friends, keeping active by playing sports and working out, and trying local coffee shops.

  • physical therapy Hershey PA

    Knee and wrist pain from arthritis was making me feel so old! After ripping up my stomach with NSAIDS and doing cortisone shots with no relief, I limped into Gilbert to try something different.

    - Corina W.
  • physical therapy Hershey PA

    My rotator cuff injury made it difficult to do activities requiring lifting weighted objects, reaching to the side and behind, and reaching overhead. With Physical Therapy, my range of motion has improved and the pain has decreased.

    - Dennis W.
  • physical therapy Hershey PA

    My PT helped me to get back to normal. Prior to beginning PT I had pain in my neck and right arm along with numbness in my index finger. The pain would wake me early every morning and prevented me by eliminating the pain in my name and arm.

    - Deric M.
  • physical therapy Hershey PA

    Bursitis in my hip prevented me from walking, sitting and climbing stairs pain-free. Sleep was affected as well. The staff at Gilbert was excellent in working with me, teaching me and encouraging me through the exercises. Dr. Abbey, Rachel and Matt worked as a team and provided considerate and consistent care, and I am now pain free and grateful!

    - Diana D.
  • physical therapy Hershey PA

    When I first came to therapy, I had very limited motion in my left ankle. It hurt to walk and use the stairs. It also interfered with my balance. Danny worked diligently to increase my range of motion in the ankle as well as giving me exercises to help my balance.
