About us

The Rehab Centre began as a single chiropractic practice in Vandergrift, PA when Dr. Ralph Petrarca became the owner in 1993. Since then, The Rehab Centre has expanded to now include 6 office locations, serving Apollo, Kittanning, Clarion, Lower Burrell, Brookville, and the Pittsburgh’s North Side. With 5 skilled doctors on staff, The Rehab Centre offers a wide range of expert chiropractic services, including chiropractic manipulation, spinal screening using state-of-the-art technology, physiotherapy, and FDA-cleared spinal decompression.

Dr. Petrarca, whose interest in becoming a chiropractor stemmed from a desire to treat fellow athletes, holds a Bachelor of Sciences in clinical nutrition from the University of Pittsburgh, as well as a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in Atlanta. In addition to his years of professional schooling, training and experience, Dr. Petrarca is also certified to treat patients who have experienced whiplash trauma and motor vehicle accidents.

The team of skilled and experienced physicians at the Rehab Centre’s 5 locations also includes Junior Partners Dr. Jason Jacobs and Dr. Isaac Greeley, and Associates Dr. Darrick Mason and Dr. Matthew Brush. Connie Andring, who has been with Dr. Petrarca since The Rehab Centre’s beginning in 1993, serves as office manager.

The Rehab Centre proudly offers a variety of services, ranging from family practice to athletic injuries to auto accidents and everything in between. Patients from all across western Pennsylvania, including Apollo, Kittanning, Clarion, Lower Burrell, Brookville, and the City of Pittsburgh, rely on our team of chiropractic experts to offer the most effective and advanced treatment options currently available.
