What we treat

Down below on this page, you’ll find the full list of what we treat and the programs we offer.

This thorough examination allows us to better identify and eliminate all underlying causes so patients achieve lasting results. We also focus on educating you, so that you’re empowered to take control of their injury, grow stronger than ever, and prevent recurrences.

After living with planter fasciitis pain for over 6 months, my coworker convinced me to get PT. I am so glad she did. The staff at Ivy Rehab in Howell are great. Lisa at the front desk is always friendly and welcoming. The PT's I worked with, Michelle, Julia, Jessica, Loretta and Emily are all knowledgeable and kind. It is wonderful to walk again without pain. Thanks to all the staff!

I was sent here through the Veterans Administration because they could not get me a physical therapy appointment in the VA Healthcare System in a timely manner. At first I thought, typical Government Contracting "they were just going to send me to some rinky dink low rent place". Boy was I wrong. The staff and facility at the Howell location are top notch. Everybody is so Hands-On and they give you absolute one-on-one attention. I even dare to say a few times we went over our 1 hr session and no one said anything and there was no extra billing back to the VA. Even if I wasn't a part of the VA Healthcare System I would gladly pay out of my pocket to come to this Clinic.PS. Dr Emily is a rockstar!

I can’t say enough about Michell Porter and her team! After my knee replacement, my recovery went smooth and was up and walking normal in no time!! Michell and staff, true professional’s !!!

The team at Ivy Rehab - Howell will do everything they can to help you achieve your goals. The staff are so helpful and kind. I've been seeing Emily and she has helped me so much in returning to the field as a collegiate soccer player. Emily is so knowledgable and caring. I'm thankful to have found Ivy Rehab. They also do their best to fit you in asap.

Please come here for all your physical therapy needs including pelvic floor! The staff is wonderful and listen to all of your needs no matter how big or small.

I have gone to Ivy for knee pain, shoulder pain, hip pain. Everyone has been so helpful In the process of making me feel better.

Please visit if you need PT. Chris

They have a friendly caring staff who create a rehab program personalized just for the patient. I have had the pleasure of working with each of the staff. They are all professionals. Julie is my main therapist and my experience with her has been great. She is patient, yet firm in reaching mine and hers goals. I have been improving greatly this summer and it due in large to ivyrehab and it’s great staff.

It was just great! Michelle is so nice and knowledgeable, she really helped me understand what was going on and what I could do to feel better.
12:21 25 May 22
This has been an incredible experience and I would recommend everyone to use this facility! I'm 3 weeks into PT, with Dr. Emily it's always one on one. Your not being turned over fast for another patient, she explains in detail what and why the procedures being used and for what. She educates you along with giving you that extra boost of confidence when you feel that maybe you just "can't do it". Even though PT is difficult, Ivy Rehab gives you their 100% attention so that you will be fully recovered. I cannot express enough what an outstanding staff they have and how impressed I am with their services.
14:55 10 May 22
Making the decision about where to go for PT? Dr. Michelle Porter helped me through 2 knee replacements, neck pain and pinched nerves. I trust her, and that’s important when I make decisions about my health care. Michelle and her experienced, highly qualified, creative, caring staff are dedicated to assuring the success of each patient. This beautiful, bright, modern facility is a gem where you’ll be warmly welcomed and reluctant to leave when it’s time to ring that graduation bell. You’re going to be heard, helped and happy!

Michelle Porter walks on water, and not just in the winter. Michelle and her staff guided me after neo-bladder surgery. With a new bladder I had no urinary control. With patience and professional instruction, over time I learned to train my abdominal, pelvic and Kegel muscles that made all the difference. My new bladder is under control and I can't thank Michelle and her staff enough.
14:20 13 Feb 22
I want to truly thank everyone here for getting me back up and running. (Well maybe not quite running). I am feeling so much better and have my strength back. Thank you Michelle, Julia, Emily and the rest of you.Janette
19:19 01 Feb 22
Thank you so Much to Emily and Staff. I had a sciatic nerve and back pain I could hardly walk. After six weeks I feel like myself again. I definitely recommend I vy Rehab in Howell.
23:41 03 Nov 21
Michelle is a fantastic PT and is very knowledgable, specifically in pelvic floor PT. I didn't want PT to end because I would no longer have my weekly visits with all of the wonderful ladies who work here! I highly recommend Ivy Rehab in Howell.

I went to my first visit and was so happy with the professionalism of this office. I worked with Michelle Porter and she is amazing. She was very thorough and came up with a plan of care that could work with my schedule. She answered all my questions and I am looking forward to working with her.

Ivy Rehab is an extremely rare combination of skill, caring and professionalism. I was treated for an achilles injury; when i first went in I was basically dragging my leg along with a bad limp, and after treatments and exercises it has improved back to where I no longer limp. Emily, Michelle and Julia all do a great job working as a team to treat your condition and get you back to health. Abby the PT assistant is great at helping structure exercises and working with you as well. The team is very talented and look out for you to heal with out causing pain. I highly recommend this group, you won't go wrong.

Michelle was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. She was able to teach me techniques to incorporate activities into my fitness routine for long term success. All of the staff were personable and professional at Ivy.
12:56 06 Oct 21
I sustained a minor back injury that left me hunched over and I could barely walk. This occurred during Christmas time and I was unable to see any chiropractors in my area. I called Ivy an they were able to get me in the same day for an injury screening. I worked with Emily and she was incredibly professional and knowledgeable. I left there feeling much better and they provided me with the exercises and stretches that I needed for at home care so that I would not need any further assistance. I cannot recommend this facility enough.

If I could give 10 stars, I would.My experience at Ivy Rehab, thanks to Michelle with the additional help of Abby and Emily, has been life-changing.I was there for pelvic floor physical therapy. Something that I wasn't aware existed until about September 2020 thanks to a tik tok I saw on Instagram. I spoke to my PCP at my physical regarding the issues I was dealing with and she agreed this was worth trying. While extremely beneficial, I want to mention It's not JUST for people who have experienced child birth or are of a certain age. And the benefits I have gained from this far exceed solving the initial issues I was being treated for. I feel stronger, capable, and well supported from the inside out. I can even sing again with proper breath support, something I had lost years ago!!I felt comfortable, at ease and in the best hands through my entire recovery. The exercise difficulty levels were gradually increased with much care and consideration. My needs were always met if I needed something adjusted to avoid pain or further discomfort. They take great care in keeping their patients safe from COVID19 exposure- temperature checks at the door, masks worn, hand-sanitizer easily accessible, wiping down all equipment and changing linens between EVERY patient use. They also offer tele-health appointment options, Michelle is a magician at finding ways for your exercises to be possible at home. Now that I've officially graduated, I'm excited to be able to continue my care on my own, thanks to this AMAZING and kind team! Cannot recommend them enough!!

Did some rehab at Ivy. Really impressive! I was able to work with Emily as well as Michelle. Both are very professional and knowledgable. I was impressed with how each lady explained exactly what they were doing and how and why it would benefit me. Their facilities are clean and they have all the latest equipment. I plan to go back for more rehab with them after my upcoming surgery. Needless to say I strongly recommend their servicesMike G

Outstanding care!! I was referred to Ivy Rehab from University of Michigan after my surgery. Dr Michelle Porter set up an exercise routine to aid in my recovery and each session she challenged me with advanced movements. My last session was Jan 6, 2021 and I feel stronger than I did prior to surgery. If you are willing to put in the work that Dr Porter prescribes you will be amazed with your results!! I may need knee surgery later on this year and I will ask my surgeon for a referral to Ivy Rehab, Dr Porter and staff are excellent!!........ML

I have had several experiences with rehab but this was the best, by far. Michelle is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The end results far exceeded my expectations. Change does not happen overnight but a willingness to follow instructions and a physical therapist who knows how to help made a significant difference for me! Highly recommended.

Polite, friendly, and well educated staff. Nice facility, with all the necessary tools.If you're body is broken, they will fix it.

Michelle Porter at Ivy Rehab has saved my life. I suffer from fibromyalgia pain in my back, hips and neck. Michelle has treated it all with various modalities. She and her staff at Ivy Rehab use manual therapy (massage), cupping, dry needling and more. I highly recommend seeing the owner Michelle for all of your physical therapy needs. Michelle adjusts my spine and hips on a regular basis unlike any other therapist or chiropractor has done for me (and I have been seeing specialists for over 10 years for these issues). She also does dry needling in my neck, back, hips, head and jaw (basically anywhere I need it). Working with Michelle has changed my life for the better and I know that she can do the same for you.
