What we treat

This thorough examination allows us to better identify and eliminate all underlying causes so patients achieve lasting results.

We understand the impact that pain and loss of function can have on the lives of our patients. Our entire staff, from the front desk to our clinical team, provides a compassionate and motivational environment dedicated to healing. We ensure we are meeting each patient’s unique needs so their experience is both enjoyable and rewarding.

I had a wonderful experience at Excel Bala Cynwyd. Stephanie is the therapist who helped me greatly with my problem areas of chronic low back and knee pain. She brings an extensive knowledge base and a wonderful demeanor to guide and encourage one through the physical therapy process. As a fellow healthcare provider, I recognize and appreciate such excellent patient care!

I have had a great experience at Excel physical therapy in Bala Cynwyd. The staff is very knowledgeable and the atmosphere is clean, relaxed and professional. My PT Melissa has met all my expectations. Pain that I have had for over a year is greatly diminishing and I’m finally able to get stronger. I’m so grateful for her expertise and kindness. A++

The Physical Therapists at Excel are above all others (In my opinion)!

I came to Excel at the recommendation of a friend of a friend after suffering debilitating sciatica starting at 4w of pregnancy. 2 months of chiropractic care did nothing to help me. I started at Excel (I waited only one day for an appointment) with Frank who listened very thoroughly to all the areas of my life that were affected. After just a few visits I had an immense improvement in pain management and quality of life. After 3 months, I was well enough to transition to a home program for the remainder of my pregnancy. I cannot stress enough how much better I have felt since coming to Excel mentally and physically after months of such horrible, suffocating pain. Everyone at this practice is extremely kind, they remember details about you, and make you feel confident and comfortable. I would recommend EPT in Bala to anyone and everyone who is looking for physical therapy. I am so grateful for the care I received here.

Extremely knowledgeable therapists. They explained how each exercise addressed and helped heal my rotator cuff...that made me understand how to do them properly.
22:38 27 May 21
My therapist was knowledgeable, helpful, patient, and personable.Would happily come back if I needed more pt.
17:03 10 May 21
The attentions to my needs beginning with the receptionist's and the therapist's attentions to the overall therapy received has been phenomenal! I now have the ability to painlessly turn my head when driving my car as well as in the course of conversation, etc. Additionally, the level of pain in my left shoulder has gone down to a "1-2" in 1 month, from normally being a "7-8" following 6 months of therapy from a different provider . I'm optimistic that a new script to cover my knees and ankles will produce similar results enabling me to stand still and/or walk pain-free as well as negotiate steps and down-grades "painlessly"; items I now attempt to avoid when at all possible.

You cannot go wrong with any of the physical therapists. I have recommended Excel to several friends, and it is my go to place for physical therapy.

I have been in Therapy over 9 years for degenerative disc disease and most recent rotator cuff surgery .Been to several PT clinics however Excel PT is true to their name . I go to the Bala Cynwyd location , my Therapist is Melisa T. Very knowledgeable , Professional , Warm and attentive .She has addressed my needs to recovery I'll give her 10 ⭐️S

I had a very rare injury for an adult and broke my left capitellum ( elbow joint). Although the surgery went well I was left with a nerve problem called CRPS. While I was grateful with still having my arm and hand the use thereof was all but gone; I couldn’t even use my left arm and hand to eat or wash my hair, etc.I went through several months of therapy with Emily Ralan; her dedication opened the door to recovery and hope and I started to improve.I also worked with Douglas Cheng that built upon Emily’s accomplishments and achieved many of his own. In my opinion Douglas Cheng has a gift and is simply brilliant! Even after the first session I was able to touch my face which was impossible before working with Doug.I will always be grateful to Doug and Emily as well as the welcome atmosphere at Excel where I started my recovery.I’m better every day now and could never have achieved this without them!I would recommend Excel to anyone, especially if you have a rare and serious injury or complication.

Excel's Bala Cynwyd office is my 3rd Excel experience and it's 5 stars, just like the first two (Jenkintown and Walnut St in Center City). Excel's business model includes fewer patients scheduled in the hour (on the 1/2 hour instead of the 1/4 hour) and no PT aides. All care is done by licensed physical therapists. I'm very impressed with Frank, the Clinical Director at the Bala site, as both a director and a PT, as he's worked on my as a back-up to my own therapist, Emily. Emily is a very informed, patient therapist who provides great communication and encouragement to her patients. Doug has also provided PT to me on Saturdays. Emily, Frank and Doug have all been exceptional therapists. I'm sure the others are too. As the Clinical Director of this site, Frank creates a positive, caring and professional atmosphere, but he knows how to have fun (i.e. the PTs all made ginger bread houses for the holidays and the patients judged them and selected the winner!). Frank makes sure that Bala is clean, organized and running smoothly. He's the perfect combination of a quality clinician and a customer-focused leader in one. His staff openly admits that they value his leadership and enjoy working for him. Additionally, my neck feels SO MUCH BETTER than when I started! My neck pain has gone from a 9 to a 3 to 5; it's a chronic problem and, as a post-op patient, I rely on physical therapy to get my neck back on track sometimes. Highly recommend Excel Bala, along with Jenkintown and Center City on Walnut. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Everyone I've met on staff is just wonderful, but I can confirm that Emily and Doug do a great job as physical therapists. Recovering from a hip replacement, and they've been kind, helpful, thoughtful, and quite effective. I'm doing so much better thanks to Excel. Highly recommend!

Best physical therapy center in the philadelphia area. The entire staff is professional, efficient, and friendly. My therapist Douglas cheng was very friendly and knowledgeable person. He helped me both virtually and in person. The whole place was really organized and clean. They cleaned all their equipments after every use. If I ever needed PT again, this is where I would go!!! Thank you so much for helping me.
03:16 31 Aug 20
Doug is a great communicator concerning my PT and also very compassionate and supportive.
20:37 29 Aug 20
Douglas I want to thank you for helping me handle all of my issues one at a time with patient. You taught me how to focus on my body for that I'm very appreciated. Douglas l am so grateful to have you as PT. I would gladly recommend you to family and friends. Excel at Bala Cynwyd.From: DC & TB

Top Notch professionals give extraordinary care and attention. Didn’t know there were so many exercises available to treat concussion symptoms, and they work. Therapist Frank Rabadam was phenomenal. Would recommend him to everybody needing PT.
21:34 11 Jan 20
It’s been a great experience @ Excel. Frank is attentive concerned & diligent in his treatment. For an undesirable activity in my day, it’s the best it could be. I would recommend Excel in Bala Cynwyd @ any time. The only drawback which has not effected me is: parking. If you need to be very close to entrance, there are fewer spots close up but plenty of spots in the lot. Also be on alert - the address sign of “150” is difficult to see. An easy fix tho!! Excel take care of highlighting the numbers on the address board

My physical therapist is Rebecca and she’s amazing. I have a severe ankle sprain and have been getting treated by her for the past 2 weeks.(2-3 days a week)She has a very happy and positive attitude all the time. At times I feel like she’s more into getting me back to 100% than I am because of how focus she is. But she goes at a pace that will gradually get you back and I have been loving my time there. The atmosphere there is great too.

I worked with Frank at Excel Bala for several months -- as he treated my shoulder. The entire team is extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly -- it's clear they love what they do. It's super easy to get appointments made -- and they've always run on time. Very clean facility -- and they do their best to make sure you're comfortable while pushing you at the same time. They get to know you as a person and going there is an enjoyable experience. I hope I never need PT again - but if I do, I'll definitely be returning to Excel in Bala.

I worked with Kayla at the Bala Cynwyd location. Her personality is out of this world, but it’s the main reason I keep coming back. She excels at what she does and puts 100 percent effort in making your outcome a success. She’s attentive, funny, & a great addition to Excel Physical Therapy. I would recommend you giving this place a try, the staff is super friendly. The atmosphere is all around a great vibe. Oh, and they give unlimited amounts of tootsie rolls each visit :) yum!

Excel’s Bala Cynwyd Team gives patients a sense of optimism and possibility with every interaction. They are a GREAT team with deep knowledge and commitment. They are results driven, professional, and compassionate during each step in your recovery.

The staff at Excel are the most nicest people the're like family and if you're looking for a physical therapy Excel is the bset place to be :-)
14:06 26 Sep 18
Great company. Started by a group of physical therapist so the focus is always on personalized treatment and the customer experience (unlike many other companies that are run by Private Equity firms who only care about profits).Each therapist only has one or two clients at a time so the attention you get is top notch.A physical therapy location opened up in my office building, but I keep coming back to Excel because of the quality of care.

It didn’t take me long to figure out why everyone recommends Frank @ Excel. He is fluent in every sport imaginable and understands how the body needs to move in order to support the wear and tear associated with the social athlete. More importantly, he knows how to support healing while safely building the strength necessary to ensure that the cure is long term.Frank’s optimism, intelligence and compassion mixed with a healthy dose of “dad humor” made my time at PT productive and, dare I say, enjoyable. It wasn’t glamorous, and I can’t say that I loved every exercise, but they all served a purpose and that I could get behind. Frank and the team are super, both professionally and personally.The facility is clean and pleasant, scheduling is easy and the other patients, young and old, were also a hoot. We laughed a lot and worked hard. And, most importantly, now I am back on the courts doing what I love to do.

Staff is extremely knowledgeable and courteous. Environment is open and clean. Best physical therapists in Philadelphia!

As a member of the leading edge of the Baby Boomers (born in 1946), I have had considerable experience with physical and occupational (what they call it for hands) therapy, including back, legs, shoulders, hands, and recovery from hand surgeries and hip replacement, at Roxborough, Chestnut Hill (also previously at Montgomery County when it was at Evergreen & Stenton), Jefferson, Rothman, the Hand (now Hand and Shoulder) Center, and I have good things to say about all of them.However, by far the best results in range of motion for shoulders after rotator cuff issues were with Frank Rabadam with Excel, first at Ardmore, and then again later at Bala Cynwyd, where he is now Director. My wife, Raquel, has also found more detailed and attentive care with Douglas at Bala Cynwyd. After my next surgery, I plan to return to Excel, in order to excel in my Pilates, yoga, weight-lifting, bicycling, canoeing, walking, and general health as I move from 70’s into 80’s and beyond. I highly recommend Frank Rabadam and his convenient Bala Cynwyd Excel therapy center. Maybe I will see you there. I am skinny, with a grey beard and glasses, with long, brown hair on the sides, but not much hair on top, and my hearing aids don’t catch everything.If you have pain not relieved by a glass or two of old vine red, try Excel, to allow you to again excel.

Excel and Kayla solved an Achilles Tendon problem I had for over 40 years. Now instead of running with pain I run with joy and gratitude to them!
16:30 20 Jul 17
I had a knee injury snowboarding and wasn't able to do any running or hard physical activity for months due to pain. The doctor had briefly mentioned surgery but wanted me to try physical therapy first. I came here and within 6 weeks Frank had me back to normal and I was able to get back to weight lifting and running like before. Thanks Frank.
23:12 10 Jul 17
Any therapy outfit is only as good as its therapists and I can attest to Kayla's being a consummate professional. She knows what she's doing and she knows how to explain it with clarity, candor and enthusiasm. A real pro!
