About Us

Husband and wife team, G. Ehren Trost and Renee Trost, founded Activecare Physical Therapy in 2012 after recognizing that our area needed more independent providers who could provide excellent care and not be restricted by big corporate rules and policies which often do not place the patient's needs ahead of their own.  Since that time we have added more providers and have won accolades as the #1 Physical Therapy provider in all of Pennsylvania in 2020 and 2021, and #11th of top of all businesses in Pennsylvania for 2021 according to publicly posted reviews across the internet collected by TopRated Local:

Big business and corporate medical providers struggle to provide excellent care because of a focus on profits and "process". Activecare Physical Therapy has but one focus - you, the patient. We have the flexibility and knowledge to do whatever is needed to get you better. That is why we remain 100% independent and family owned - so we can provide the best physical therapy Erie, PA has to offer! Activecare Physical Therapy has been rated by the online public as the number one in Erie, PA and number two in the entire state of Pennsylvania! You and your loved ones deserve the very best care available. So exercise your right to choose your own medical providers - choose Activecare Physical Therapy!


Our licensed therapists work tirelessly to merge extensive specialized training and cutting-edge techniques to provide the most effective results possible. We encourage you to experience our patient-centered approach first hand and return to your greatest level of function and fitness possible.
