One of the many things that makes MossRehab unique among rehabilitation hospitals is its variety of care settings. This mix, in combination with its robust assortment of clinical specialties, allows for different types of providers to work side-by-side at locations throughout the region.

MossRehab Center City is one such location. Clinical Director of Musculoskeletal Spine and Sports Rehabilitation Medicine, Christopher Plastaras, MD works there several times a week practicing alongside physical therapists. Dr. Plastaras is a renowned pain expert, a distinction which brings him some of the most challenging cases throughout Philadelphia and beyond.

However, there are times when he needs to consult with a physical therapist to diagnose and treat certain patients. When these cases arise, he turns to James Poston, PT, OCS, CFMT. As a physical therapist with an orthopedic clinical specialty and functional manual therapy certification, Jamie can join Dr. Plastaras with a patient in the exam room or the gym area and provide unique insight in real time, without the need for a referral or additional appointment. This unique model leads not only to better patient outcomes, but a better patient experience as well.
