I was there for a little over 2 months and they really go above and beyond with what they do. Everyone is super nice and friendly and all we really did was laugh most of the time. Coffee was on the house. Avery and Zach were my main PT doctors and they work well as a team. My insurance got cut kinda towards the end and they kept seeing me. The self pay option was really reasonable considering how well they treat you. I thought it would be more like a million dollars 🤣🤣😄😄 I'm happy with them and My shoulder injury has been so much better. I've even considered continuing to work out and I even got myself a gym membership. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I am a primary care physician. Ivy is my go-to referral for patients requiring physical therapy. Amazing staff and amazing results. Patients have nothing but good things to say about this place. Keep up the great work!
Great, friendly staff and very knowledgeable. They make you feel comfortable and are able to get to the bottom of the issue at hand.
Referred to Ivy PT by orthopedic physician for leg injury with bone and muscle pain related to overuse and neuropathy—I had gone from routinely walking 6 or so miles a day prior to inability to walk due to bone and muscle pain from altered gait and foot drop. Therapy started with deep massage by PT Crystal followed by gait training , balance exercises and strengthening exercises.I progressed over weeks of therapy—and beyond my initial expectations I have been able to resume previous level of activity. This weekend was a milestone in that I was able to take my granddaughters and stroll through Longwood Gardens —an activity which would have been impossible weeks ago. I cannot express how grateful I am for the patience, support and expertise of Crystal and other staff members for helping me regain my mobility. Many many thanks. I highly recommend Ivy Physical Therapy based on my treatment there. Just exceptional results.
therapist is very friendly and caring. They answer any questions I have.
I highly recommend Ivy Rehab. Friendly staff, clean environment, great location…Awesome!
The staff is excellent and make you feel welcomed.
I’ve been to a few physical therapy places in the Lancaster area and these guys are simply the best. If you want to get better and stay better, I’d strongly recommend you give them a try.
After getting injured at a lifting competition, Crystal was able to get me back to pain-free lifting within only a month and a half. Throughout my sessions here at Excel, it was apparent that she loves what she does, genuinely enjoys seeing her clients improve, and is greatly knowledgeable in her work. Thank you Crystal and the rest of the staff at Excel!
Awesome staff and physical therapy
Best PT I’ve ever experienced. Nic, Crystal and Brittany are all highly skilled at diagnosis and treatment. The atmosphere in the clinic is warm and welcoming. My lower back pain is completely gone and I now have the knowledge to keep it that way. Would highly recommend to anyone!
People are very friendly and knowledgeable.
This was my first experience with physical therapy and I will never go anywhere else for physical therapy after working with these folks. From the top down everything was top notch including the staff, the facilities, and the program itself. I sought out PT for an issue I was having with my hip and back. I started working with Brittany and she was very detail-oriented and had me on a regimented schedule instantly. Shortly after, I began feeling the pain dissipating in my hip and back. I carried on with my PT for a few months until the pain was obsolete. Over the course of that time I would also work with Nick and Crystal who were a pleasure to work with as well! The entire staff are kind, hard-working, and knowledgeable. They genuinely care for their patients and make working with them a very rewarding experience. The cherry on the top is their personalities! There’s no lack of wit, intelligence, or humor in any of them which makes the time spent there, dare I say, pretty darn fun!! Highly recommend this place for all of your physical therapy needs!
I'm so grateful my doctor recommended me to Excel Physical Therapy. Crystal was wonderful to work with as well at Brit. The environment is really nice and everyone is outgoing and willing to help. Going twice a week for my concussion therapy not only helped my symptoms get better but I gained a friend in the process. Definitely recommend!
Excellent service. Therapist knowledgeable, experienced and effective in motivating patients towards therapeutic goals.
This is my second week at Excel, where I am being treated for tendinopathy. I am already seeing progress. Brittany is my physical therapist. She is professional, has a great personality, and is easy to work with. Judy, at the front desk, is very sweet and helpful.Observing the interaction between everyone at excel, it seems that they get along very well and complement each other.
Nic and the staff at Excel are great! Starting with the reception at the front desk to the treatment and implementation of your recovery program. It’s a very professional yet friendly and fun atmosphere.
Excel is the BEST! They are so knowledgeable & make your recovery fun. It has a family atmosphere & everyone is so friendly!
Knowledgeable and friendly staff, A+ service and A+ results
Best place with the best people! They’ve helped me so much! I’d recommend them to anyone and everyone!
Really great. Has helped out a lot as an athlete👍
Nic is the best PT I've ever had, which is saying a lot, because I've had back problems my whole adult life. I was in severe pain at my first appointment, but by visit four, I was almost out of pain. Nic is knowledgeable, caring and has a great sense of humor. As we worked on getting me stable and strong, Nic was guided by what I personally wanted and needed to do. He made sure my exercises got me strong in specific ways so I can take care of my home and garden. The first half hour of each appointment, I had his full attention for mobilization and massage. The facility is very clean and bright. I looked forward to my visits, because, although I worked hard, it was also fun. I will always use Nic in the future if I need a therapist.
Dr Nick was great! Very knowledgeable and he really shows how much he cares. I have struggled with neck, shoulder and back pain for years. Docs told me I’d never be able to do certain weight lifting exercises again. After a few visits, Dr. Nick already had me deadlifting and squatting with no pain. Even after I finished my PT, Dr. Nick has followed up with me to check in to make sure I’m still doing well and progressing in my recovery. I can’t say enough about Dr. Nick and the entire staff. Everyone is always happy to see you and very welcoming. I felt very comfortable from day one. Highly recommend Excel PT and I’m so grateful for their help in getting me healed up!
Excel physical therapy is the best in Lancaster! I have been to other physical therapy facilities in Lancaster but have never had the positive results like I did with Excel. My orthopedic Dr. recommended Excel because you get to work directly with the DPT. I do believe that this is one of the things that sets Excel apart and the reason I had such great success. Crystal, Nick and Brittany have years of training behind their doctorate and are extremely knowledgeable. I worked with Dr. Crystal Loy for the entire program. She is incredible! She is funny, kind, caring and always ready to educate her patients. She was constantly adjusting my program to ensure my success. A side note, Crystal is very strong so if you're an athlete or just have tight muscles, she is the Dr. to see. She does amazing working out the knots in your muscles! Lol. Honestly, I really can't recommend her enough.The biggest bonus about Excel is that all of the staff is extremely friendly and makes you feel very welcomed. Every time I went I knew I was going to have a good time with lots of laughing. "Graduating" from the program is definitely bittersweet. It feels amazing to be pain free, something I didn't think possible. But I definitely am going to miss the amazing staff!As you can tell by this essay, I can't say enough good things about Excel physical therapy (Lancaster) and their staff. I highly recommend them!
I have been having knee issues for several years on and off and went to Excel for PT. I saw Nic at the Philadelphia location and really liked the treatment I received. Highly recommend!
Dr. Crystal is the absolute best! When my shoulder started acting up on my lifts, Dr. Crystal’s expertise got me back on track and pain-free on my overhead lifts and stronger stable shoulders. I’m back competing in Olympic Weightlifting again and feeling great!
The best physical therapy experience I’ve ever had! They are so friendly and make you feel at home. Crystal have helped me through one of the hardest injury, she took me from 5 min on a treadmill to 25+ min. My balance and brain skills have increased drastically! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I highly recommend Crystal and the whole crew at Excel. I had scapular dyskinesis and she was able to get the shoulder back functioning properly. They are quick to schedule your first appointment and respond within a short period of time to any email or phone call, especially when it was a question about a recent visit.
Crystal has been great! She's so knowledgeable and proficient...I know I'm in very capable hands!!!
I went to Excel Physical Therapy-Lancaster after I threw my back out about two months ago, and the care I received there was unbelievable! Nick, and the staff here are so warm and welcoming, and he helped me get back to 100% in a very short amount of time. I highly recommend coming to Excel Physical Therapy Lancaster for any pain/discomfort you may have.
Crystal might be the only person I trust! She is humble but excellent. Her optimism is contagious.
Best therapy I have received and quick booking! Thankful for that! You will love this place and the people.
I would definitely recommend Excel Physical Therapy as a top notch PT option in Lancaster. I love working with Crystal. She’s attentive and kind and really helped out my lower back/hip issues. Also, they have evening appointment options which makes it easy for me with my work schedule. I’ll definitely continue to use Excel for maintenance as much as I can.
I am very grateful that i was able to go to Excel. The team there was amazing, they quickly made you feel like a part of their family and cared for. They listen carefully and create a specific rehab plan for you, not only using hands on but giving you the tools to continue to get better at home. Thank you so much Excel PT :)
Crystal has been so kind and helpful with my husband! Thank you!!
I was truly lucky to stumble upon this place just 10 minutes away from my house while desperately trying to get to the root of my intense lower back pain stemming from an injury back in 2012. The entire team in Excel is wonderful. These are very friendly, understanding, caring professionals with great sense of teamwork who truly thrive to get you feeling not just better, but back to the 100% of your potential. To tell the truth, I was skeptical about trying physical therapy but this place transformed my attitude towards it. I am especially grateful to Nic who kept coming up with new methods and techniques as my symptoms were changing. His abilities to adapt to each patient and multitask while providing tailored care to every one of them are amazing. He does it playfully and with great sense of humor, too. Even on days I was feeling sore, I was looking forward to my next session. I feel at peace knowing that I found such a great place I can rely on for great quality therapy help any time I might need it in the future. Thank you!
I had a great experience with my rehab at Excel in Lancaster. I’m a recent graduate from Division I athletics that recently had my 7th knee surgery. This team at Excel was great at keeping up with my high demand for the recovery that I needed to get back to my prior normal. Even with COVID-19 looming throughout my whole experience. The staff did an excellent job at keeping everything sanitary and catering to every patient’s needs. Special shoutout to Crystal who did an excellent job with everything that I asked of her and pushing me to recover in a fast yet safe manor.
This review is coming a bit late, but I guess better late than never. I worked with Nic Shuscavage, when he was working at Center City Philadelphia Location. I had come in with a bad situation with my shoulders, where it even hurt for me to move my neck much. My muscles were knotted really badly and felt like popcorn when running hands over it. Nic worked on me tirelessly for over 2 months with stretches, hot compresses, massages with special tools and even with his bare hands till his fingers hurt. He returned my mobility back to the point where I can play tennis without pain. I'm in a much better shape now because of this guy, although I must say I fell behind on keeping up with his suggested stretches post therapy, to maintain my condition. This dude is extremely knowledgeable and diligent and I wish him all the best of his future endeavors.
I was suffering from extreme neck pain and near-constant migraines when I was referred to Excel PT. Crystal was outstanding to work with from day 1. She has a wealth of knowledge to share about the body and helped me to find ways to alleviate the pain I was in. She worked in combination with my referring physician to develop a manageable plan and course of action for helping me find much needed relief. Always patient and kind, Crystal spent months working with me to get me pain-free. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Excel is different because you have much more time working directly with the therapist, allowing them to monitor progress and make helpful tweaks to your program as you go along. I actually looked forward to my PT appointments, between the pain relief they offered as well as the fun and personable staff! Welcoming, patient, compassionate, and knowledgeable - you cannot ask for a better place to go through physical therapy.
Crystal worked with me to rehabilitated my brain after a concussion I had months back. She was not only very kind but good at her job. After just a few sessions by vertigo was gone and my constant headaches decreased. We did various visual and physical exercises that improved balance, memory, hand-eye coordination, and my daily work as a fitness coach. All the staff is extremely friendly. I've recommended this place to multiple people and will continue to do so. If I even need PT in the the future this is where I'll be going!!
Was treated by Nic for neck issues. He took the time to understand my concerns, evaluate my range of motion and pain level, then discuss the plan of action with me. He was friendly, knowledgeable and showed concern for my quality of life.
Nick is excellent. I completely recovered from my shoulder injury and in less time than feared. I would definitely go back.
I've said many times that first impressions are lasting impressions and this is case in point. The staff are wonderful and very helpful and make your therapy time beneficial to your pre surgery and post surgery recovery.
I worked with Nick S. a bit ago. When I first arrived, I could barely walk. My appointment was immediate and an emergency, and Nick took great care in our consultation to figure out what was going on but keep me comfortable during the process.Sessions later, the herniated disc in my back healed. Not only have I suffered 0 pain since our last session, but I was shown how to lift correctly, how to immediately get ahead of pain if I started to feel any (haven't yet!), and my physiological makeup which made me inclined to suffer from the issue without proper care. I was also taught how to work out properly (Nick even gifted me some resistance bands!).It was a bummer when our sessions were over (I wondered if I could use Nick as a trainer) but being able to walk without pain is priceless!
