I chose this place because convenience, but it was the best experience ever. The team is very professional but warm at the same time. Alex is an excellent DPT and addressed and resolved 2 completely different issues over 6 weeks, both with excellent results. Through the therapy he has taught me some valuable tools that I can use for the rest of my life.The facility is super clean and is a very calm atmosphere, which make it easy to focus. Karen the secretary is super helpful and cheery. I am grateful for the experience! Thanks!

I would recommend Excel in Emmaus to anyone who needs physical therapy. Alex Weinert was my therapist and he was very professional and compassionate. I felt like Alex and I were working as a team to help me to recover fully from my hip replacement.

My husband was lucky enough to have Esther as his PT for a knee injury, and she was an integral part of his full recovery. Then in November, I started therapy for my shoulder with Esther. Three months later I am fully recovered, thanks to Esther. She is such a gem! She has great integrity, a wonderful sense of humor and above all really cares about her patients. I strongly recommend Excel, but make sure to ask for Esther!

I cannot say enough good things about Excel PT, specifically Nick Schultz. He has been an integral part of my post-op recovery by listening to my goals and providing the appropriate education and rehab program to get me there. His one-on-one expertise has allowed me to accomplish things quicker than I thought possible!

I had a video session with Nick during the COVID era. Between a thorough questioning and having me perform basic movements for evaluation, he quickly identified mobility issues. He recommended several daily movements I could begin immediately to alleviate pain and work on a long term fix. I felt material changes within a few days, and a month later, feel essentially back to new! I would definitely work with Nick again, in-person or through video chat.

OAA Orthopedic recommended that I go to Nick Schultz at Excel for physical therapy for discomfort and mobility issues in my neck. It was the best decision I ever made. Nick worked with me to relieve the discomfort and taught me exercises which I continue to do to this day to improve my neck mobility. I no longer have any discomfort and have complete mobility in my neck. I'm extremely thankful that I had Nick for my therapist and would go back to him in the future if I would ever need any type of therapy in the future. Thanks Nick!

My husband had an injury to his MCL while offroading on a 4 wheeler. He is very active and the injury slowed him down big time.He was advised by his physician to consider rehabilitation instead of surgery. He chose Excel because it was close to home. That is where he was introduced to Esther. From day 1 the therapy he was provided with was excellent !! He made amazing progress and a full recovery. It is several months later and his knee is still holding up to his active lifestyle. He found the facility clean and professional and the staff super friendly.He would recommend Excel to anyone looking for a great environment to heal injuries. Thanks so much to Esther and Excel !!

If need be, I would definitely return to Excel! Simple facility with every tool they need, great therapists and support staff. If you're looking for a place that doesn't make you return unnecessarily, this is it!

Went to Nick at Excel to remedy wild lower-body muscle imbalances that were the result of chronic injuries. He was very helpful and knowledgeable, and helped me regain much needed strength and stability.Also, he's just an all around nice guy, who always has an exercise or mobilization technique for any ache or pain you may be feeling besides your primary ailment.

My doctor at OAA recommended Nick at Excel Physical Therapy in Emmaus and I am so grateful that she did. Through working with Nick and his hands-on approach, I have gone from constant acute pain to almost no pain whatsoever in just about six weeks. Nick worked with me for the entire duration of each appointment and made sure I was continuously improving. Through his attention and sincere interest in my care, my symptoms have almost completely disappeared and he made sure I have the knowledge and ability to self-manage any minor pain that might occur. I have already recommended Nick and Excel to several friends and will continue to do so.

After suffering from numerous sciatica flareups, I sought out the help of Nick Schultz after attending a free workshop on back and sciatica issues offered through Excel Physical Therapy. Nick was persistent and determined to minimize these flareups and after months of physical therapy he helped me tremendously. His approach and techniques were quite different than any other I’ve experienced and I couldn’t be more grateful to him.

I was fortunate to work with Esther. She is fantastic—really helped me with my spine/back injury and got me back in the regular gym safely and quickly. Esther is caring and listens—which I believe always helps people recover and stay motivated. I have been to other facilities, but will only return to Excel.

Nick is an incredibly positive person with extensive knowledge in all areas of PT. His expertise and attitude made my ACL rehab about much more than my knee. His motivation and energy put me on a rehab path that taught me a total body health regimen I continue to this day- 3 years later! Thank you Nick, for quite literally changing my life!

I greatly distressed the muscles in my lower back and was in constant spasms. After the hospital gave me drugs that only slightly relieved the symptoms and pain, I saw Nick. I walked in hunched over and after one session walked out standing straight! Over the next several weeks he worked with me to bring me back to normal function. Highly recommended!

I've been having problems with my neck for the past few years. I checked out Excel, and I learned exercises that I could do to relieve pain in my neck and back. The staffing was super nice, and Nick's a great guy. He explained the reasons why I had problems in my neck and equipped me to heal my neck on my own. Great stuff, love and would recommend Excel to anyone!

I went to Excel PT Emmaus for about 8 weeks for arthritis in both of my knees. My therapist was Esther, a young lady who really knows her stuff, plus she has such a wonderful, caring, outgoing personality!! I honestly didn't mind going to PT because she made it enjoyable...if you can believe that! She taught me exercises to do at home, which I did faithfully, one of which helped me significantly. Don't get me wrong, I know I'll never be "pain free", but I do know that I am now living pain managed and feeling a whole lot better because of Esther. I would highly recommend anyone to go there because they personify excellence!

Nick treated my 14yr old sons pre and post surgical ACL/Meniscus repair. He got him back to 100%. He was so understanding and helpful, he has a great team, friendly, and welcoming. I highly recommend them! You wont get one on one care like that anywhere else.

This place is A+!My therapist, Esther, was excellent. She showed great concern and endeavored tirelessly to make my shoulder better. Having been to PT a few times at other local places, I can say Excel and Esther far outrank the others!

Excellent therapy from Physical Therapist Esther. She was not only knowledgeable but warm and compassionate. Her concern for making sure I got the most out of each session, was extraordinary. The best part of the whole experience was that I could walk again and not use a knee brace.I highly recommend Excel and especially Esther.

I broke my leg badly back in January and had been non weight bearing since having surgery. I started physical therapy at Excel in late April basically relearning how to walk again. In the time that I have been going, not only has my Physical Therapist, Esther, helped me gain back strength but also gain much needed confidence and support to continue to get better. From my first phone call to set up my initial appointment to the care I am receiving now from Esther has made me feel welcomed and cared for. I would strongly encourage any family or friends in need of PT to make an appointment with Excel Physical Therapy.

I would recommend this place to anyone in the area needing physical therapy. I love that you get time with the physical therapist at every appointment, and aren’t left to yourself to receive instructions from a technician. The one on one experience is drastically different than other physical therapy models I’ve experienced, and I recommend this place highly.

I was originally hesitant about going to physical therapy to be honest but I couldn't be more pleased with how great of an experience it has been. Starting with Selena who helped set me up, she's super polite and professional (which Is very refreshing) to Nick and Ester giving me the personal one on one attention during every appointment. It has been and still is a great experience every step of the way and would recommend them to anyone in need of physical therapy. Would give more then 5 stars if I could!

Went to a seminar at Apex, and Justin made a lot of sense. I scheduled an evaluation the same day. At the evaluation Justin was very informative and explained what my problem could be and that he was pretty sure he could help me. I have been going for therapy 2 times a week for the last several weeks, and I feel for the first time in therapy, and I have been through a lot a therapy elsewhere that I am finally making progress. I will contine as long as it takes to get to where I want to be. That goal would be to start walking again. Hopefully up to 4 miles per day again. Thank you Justin for giving me hope again. Justin is a great therapist. His knowledge is above and beyond any therapist I ever went to. He understands and asks all the right questions when I see him. He doesn't make me feel uncomfortable about my weight. He is very professional and really cares about your progress. They have a list of things on the wall about treatment of the patient. They follow through with all of them. This is a great place to go for Physical Therapy. I highly recommend Apex.
