I showed gradual and definite improvement. My therapist, Erika Eiesland explained each step of the way and encouraged at-home at the same time as her therapy and after it was completed.
20:31 29 Sep 22
The team at Ivy is outstanding! My PT was Erika, and she was fantastic! I arrived with a lot of knee pain, and Erika was able to quickly build a plan which successfully addressed the problem. She is enthusiastic, caring, creative, and VERY knowledgeable. After meeting my goals, she created an at home program for me to follow to remain pain free. I HIGHLY recommend Erika and the entire group at Ivy!
14:21 15 Sep 22
I have been a client at Ivy Rehab for approximately 3 weeks. I see nice improvement in my back and leg. David Rivera is extremely knowledgeable and very personal. He always has a smile on his face and seems to have a great recall on things you are doing or have planned. He has given me a variety of exercises to help ease my pain and have to say it has really helped.Thanks David.
00:05 14 Sep 22
My experience with the staff at the libertyville il. location was amazing.David and his team are so knowledgeable and professional .They got me back to being able to perform my daily routine.I would highly recommend the wonderful team at Ivyrehab.
13:45 26 Aug 22
Great experience! My Freshman son primarily worked with David. He was very helpful and provided us with plenty of stretches and therapy to do at home. The entire staff is very friendly and helpful….And the new facility is awesome!
13:31 16 Aug 22
Dave worked with me regarding many injuries. He cared about how I was doing on a different level and treated me like family. He is should a great guy along with the others who work along side of him. Very much recommend!
19:45 12 Aug 22
Through many injuries and pain David and others are there every step of the way to give relief and full healing on any injury that may hinder you from activity! First thing I do when injured is contact David to see what is best to do in the situation to help me continue being an athlete. No matter the sport you play or the job you do Ivy rehab will put its best foot forward to help you and your body get to where you want and need it to be!
02:35 12 Aug 22
Dave and his team are the absolute best!! I went in for a sprained ankle and in no time I got back to 100% (and had fun while doing it). They make therapy so enjoyable and they are all awesome people to get to know. I’d recommend this team and Ivy Rehab to everyone!!
19:42 11 Aug 22
I always felt welcomed coming into Ivy and I was greeted with a smile each day. Amazing service with incredible flexibility. Ivy treated me like I was family.
02:07 03 Aug 22
I just completed a long PT after shoulder reconstruction. The clinic director and the therapists I worked with were flexible, caring, and capable, and dare I say, pleasant. Having limited experience at both corporate PT providers, as well as medical provider based, I am glad I made the choice I did. Over the months I progressed from zero percent use to nearly normal. Highly recommended. If you have to do PT, these are the guys to use.
14:06 29 Jul 22
I would highly recommend David and his team with any PT needed. He is extremely patient centric and hands-on while also giving the tools needed to work at home. David is well-versed with elite athletes helping them get back to their game at their highest level. I am grateful he and his team were able to help my daughter recover from her injury and get back to her game!
17:40 26 Jul 22
I had a bad fall in January and fractured my foot in multiple places. It was my first time breaking a bone and it was a very slow and painful recovery. I was bedridden for eight weeks and then was approved for physical therapy. I found David Riviera and he was excellent at helping me to recover. He’s caring and compassionate. He’ll listen to your needs and he won’t push your physical limitations. From the time I fell till I graduated from therapy took six months. I’ve been seeing them twice a week for four months and very much appreciate what they’ve done. I’m petty much back to where I was before my accident. I would recommend going here for therapy to anyone.
13:42 23 Jul 22
The best experience with physical therapy David is the best !! He’s always patience and giving the best of his time to every one without a doubt I recommend It to 100 % 😊
15:58 19 Jul 22
David and the team at Ivy Rehab are awesome! Flexibility getting my daughter in for multiple appointments prior to a big tournament was above and beyond. Highly recommend if your athlete is focused on getting to the next level. Thanks David and team!!!!

23:53 15 Jul 22
The team at Ivy Rehab Libertyville are outstanding. I had a very nagging hamstring injury that seemed like would never go away and I thought I would never run again. David came up with a physical therapy plan that included a lot of reassurance that I was on the right track toward healing. His gentle demeanor and aggressive therapy is the best combination and got me back on my feet running within 6 weeks. He is great at listening and paying attention to details. I would recommend this practice to anyone, hands down they are the best.
21:50 15 Jul 22
David and his team at Ivy Rehab are excellent. They were great about getting me back to normal after my knee surgery and had me meeting my post-op goals ahead of schedule. They are very hands on with patients and creative with the exercises they assign to keep things challenging and keep you moving forward in your recovery. I would highly recommend going here for any physical therapy needs.
03:49 15 Jul 22
David is the best PT around!! Had my daughter back on the basketball court from an ankle injury quicker than anticipated. Everyone is super helpful and cares about your well-being. Great staff!
03:32 15 Jul 22
Ivy Rehab is amazing! Everyone is so knowledgeable and genuinely cares about your recovery! Highly recommend!!
20:25 03 Jul 22
Runner for >20 years, frequently sidelined with injuries. David, Erika, and Gosia were outstanding and far exceeded my expectations. I learned so much, and feel like a much stronger athlete since working through my injuries with them. I could not give a stronger recommendation than for this team!
03:09 17 Jun 22
The team at Ivy Rehab-Libertyville is outstanding! David and Erika are very professional and knowledgeable. They worked around my busy schedule which is always a plus in my book. Will recommend to anyone who needs physical therapy.
18:31 10 Jun 22
I had knee replacement surgery and went to Ivy Rehab for my PT. From the minute I walked in they all treated me like part of the family. Erika was my main therapist and she was INCREDIBLE!!! I also witnessed the care given by David and Gosia and they all are WONDERFUL!! In the beginning Erika evaluated my knee and set goals with me. She wanted to be sure that we were working not only on goals based on their standards but also wanted to know what I wanted to accomplish and the activities I wanted to be able to do after completing PT. I could tell she really cared!Based on the program she put together for me and her sessions with me, I am happy to say that all my goals were met and I couldn't be happier. I will recommend Ivy to all my friends! Thanks for EVERYTHING!!!
01:20 09 Jun 22
David, Gosia, Erica, and Becky are the best of the best! They are all very friendly and knowledgeable. They truly want you to get better and feel comfortable before graduating. Ivy Rehab will forever be family to me.
17:40 26 May 22
If you need rehab, David and his team at Ivy Rehab is where you should go. My surgeon recommended David as THE person to see for post op rehab for my hip while I was convalescing at my sisters in the area. He knows the surgeons protocol like the back of his hand. I immediately felt comfortable with David. His approach is very hands on, engaging, compassionate, patient, personalized, progressive, easily flexes to meet the my need, pushes when he knows I can do it (but doubt myself). And you’ll get a few laughs along the way too. Hands down best PT I’ve ever seen, and I still travel up from the city on occasion for therapy.
14:30 14 May 22
Wonderful staff and service. My two boys were treated quickly and professionally with their injuries. Highly recommend!!
20:22 13 May 22

Went from not being able to run even close to full speed to being able to play 3 games in one weekend less then 2 weeks later thanks to david and the amazing things he was able to do to my groin and hamstring.
21:28 20 Apr 22
David and everyone at Ivy are the best! My back feels better than ever and I had such a fun time in the process. The atmosphere at Ivy is so energetic and supportive, and not just from the PT’s, but also the clients. Hopefully I won’t have to be back in physical therapy, but if I do I know where I’m going. Thanks again Ivy!!
02:46 27 Mar 22
Ivy rehab has been a great experience for my son. The office is very flexible and efficient. David, the PT, is knowledgeable, motivating and positive! He has had a great experience!
14:58 19 Mar 22
IVY is great! Everybody is amazing when it comes to getting people back up and going! I just finished after 6 1/2 months post ACL surgery and I feel great!
16:57 12 Mar 22
I saw David and his team this summer for plantar fasciitis! David was wonderful to work with and very concerned about my well being and how I was feeling. He took the time to listen to my concerns and rework my exercises to make PT as helpful as possible. I left PT in a much better place than when I started and an arsenal of different stretches and exercises to do should my plantar fasciitis flare up again! I HIGHLY recommend David at Ivy Rehab!
03:05 23 Feb 22
Gosia and her team are phenomenal!
15:43 19 Feb 22
Had a great experience working with David and the team! As a runner, they understood the focus on staying active and dealing with an injury.

16:45 01 Feb 22
Great service! Enjoyed going to Pt there
03:40 01 Feb 22
I highly recommend David and his team. David is a very competent pt who spent much of our time together hands-on, then gave me the tools to strengthen at home. He is compassionate and accommodating, and makes each patient feel like they are the only one. I have been to other physical therapists, but David is in a different category. If I ever need a pt in the future, I would not consider anyone else.
16:32 29 Jan 22
Ivy is a great place with kind, funny, hardworking trainers!
23:04 27 Jan 22
Such a supportive atmosphere! David and the rest of the team at Ivy really care about the whole patient. Can’t say enough good things about them.

I truly appreciate the care I have received from David and team!
00:35 31 Dec 21
David and Ivy Rehab made me feel so comfortable after my hip surgery when I had to start physical therapy. I was so nervous but they were compassionate, knowledgeable, and kind. They knew exactly how my surgeon wanted to see me progressing and were there to cheer me on the whole way. I would 100% go back to Ivy Rehab should I need to in the future!
18:59 22 Dec 21
Friendly and knowledgeable staff

My doctor said I had a micro-tear (pulled muscle) in my neck, and to find a physical therapist. My chiropractor recommended Ivy, and I am glad I did. First visit I was assessed and my neck and trapezoid muscles were massaged, and I was given a simple workout session. I felt much better after that visit. Two more visits and the problem is almost completely gone.
21:45 27 Nov 21
David Rivera and his team are exceptional! I have been with him through multiple injuries. He has treated multiple members of our family. When injured, we go to Ivy
17:31 24 Nov 21
I have had a few PT runs for various injuries with mixed results. The team at Ivy Rehab is by far the best. I hobbled in there with a twisted knee and was back up and running by the time I left. The steps show it all.Not only did I improve immensely, I enjoyed going because the team was incredibly fun and supportive. Top notch service world class people 👌
23:00 21 Nov 21
I thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from my time with David. He’s excellent and very personable.
20:30 20 Nov 21
I started therapy with Gosia 2 months ago with a back issue. I was skeptical that therapy would help. I finished today and will continue exercises at.home. I’m feeling so much better with her help and understanding. The the staff was extremely nice and fun to work with..
18:51 19 Nov 21
I can not tell you how amazing this experience was with David Rivera. He is so professional and coached me though everything I needed to do to heal up correctly to get back on the soccer field.I recommend him and his location to anyone who needs the correct treatment for their needs. Thank you again. 5*****
13:18 13 Nov 21
I found Ivy Rehab on line and so glad I did. In the past I've gone through multiple rounds of physical therapy. I tried different practices at that time but PT sure wasn't what I thought it was going to be. They were very impersonal and it felt like what I was going through didn't matter at all. So now I need PT again and I was dreading it.....until I found this facility in Libertyville!! David, the clinical director, is too good to be true, and I couldn't be more serious about this! He genuinely cares about the patient and what they're going through. He does whatever it takes to ensure you're on the schedule and not waiting long to start your road to recovery!! He's very intelligent and funny but never veers from being professional.This facility is clean and welcoming. I actually find myself looking forward to PT. Whoever is reading this, you don't want to go anywhere else but Ivy Rehab, Libertyville!!
03:50 10 Nov 21
David and his team provide great care. Highly recommend

David and his staff are awesome. Very accommodating to my schedule needs. My pain improved within the first couple visits. I’d recommend his clinic to anyone looking for physical therapy AND fantasy football advice :)
22:03 06 Oct 21
David is very knowledgeable in his approach to PT. He cares about his client's wellbeing and a successful outcome. The entire staff is outstanding!
15:32 27 Sep 21
I am very pleased I chose Ivy Rehab because, Malgorzata (Gosia) helped me get back on my feet after a complicated injury. I have no pain now and resumed all normal activities. The team at Ivy Rehab in Libertyville focus on the patient and listen to all concerns. They will adjust all exercises to ability and interest of the patient. I want to thank Gosia especially because of the time she put into my recovery - you do feel like family at this facility. Many thanks!
21:48 24 Sep 21
Great customer service of the team. It’s like a family atmosphere. The skills that I was taught has made a big difference. I would recommend anyone to get the best PT services in Lake County. Gosia, David and team are the best
20:53 16 Sep 21
Ivy Rehab is excellent! The office is clean, well-managed, and modern. David was knowledgeable. He got to the root of the problem quickly. I was up and running, all puns intended, so well that I was able to still complete the Chicago Triathlon. Due to my injury, I was unsure that would be possible. I highly recommend Ivy Rehab!
16:30 15 Sep 21
David and well trained team are experts, perfect balance of therapy and exercise. Thanks to Ivy my rehab from total hip replacement is processing splendidly.
13:25 23 Aug 21
14:13 13 Aug 21
David Rivera & his staff are amazing. I had lower back pain for over 2yrs that never went away and now I have none. I assumed I would just have to live with it and THRILLED that it is gone. He is very caring & knowledgeable. He addressed all my concerns and focused on me as an individual. He makes sure that my exercises are being done correctly and that they are challenging without being painful. The rest of the staff at IVY in Libertyville is very friendly also. If you need a Physical Therapist they are the best!
17:05 01 Jul 21
Ivy Rehab has been an outstanding experience. The staff are caring & knowledgeable. Seeing progress is really motivating. I would definitely recommend them.
13:08 25 Jun 21
David Rivera is the BEST at what he does! He is truly knowledgeable, genuinly caring and focuses on individual needs.He always watches how I do the exercises and makes corrections so that I do not hurt myself and give up! An added bonus is that he is an awesome human being - truly a gift!
03:15 08 Jun 21
Got me back on the pitch in no time😎
15:34 03 Jun 21
After going to Athletico for several sessions on my back and not having having a therapist who would pay attention and show concerns I left them. I consulted with my back Dr and he recommended Ivy. What a difference! Francisco and David are Great they are hands on and always asking for feedback on how my back was feeling. If I had pain or felt uncomfortable Francisco would change the exercise to something else. The atmosphere there is super welcoming and a lot of fun to be around.
23:47 09 May 21
David and Francisco are two wonderful people that were able to help me through one of the toughest times my life. They treated me like family from day one and were very motivating. I left every session feeling confident and excited to come back in order to continue to heal. I’m extremely grateful for the work and time they have put into helping me recover, and would recommend everyone suffering any injury to sign up as soon as possible. They will get you back up and moving in no time at all!!!
21:46 07 May 21
My son was treated by Francisco, but we also got to know David. Both gentlemen have outstanding “bedside manners” and develop a great rapport with their patients. They know their stuff & really help you achieve your goals. Francisco was able to engage my son in conversation to help him understand where he was having issues and how his treatment protocol was helping him improve. I would recommend Francisco to anybody young or old or in between!!!
21:01 06 May 21
David cured my terrible vertigo. I can't be thankful enough for finding such a knowledgeable, patient and caring professional who goes out of his way to help!
23:13 30 Apr 21
I enjoyed the therapy. I received a lot of informative information. I feel Francisco and David were great and informative. I feel my needs were met regarding my shoulder.

23:31 30 Mar 21
I suddenly after recovery from Covid have awakened rheumatoid arthritis, it was chronic coming down stairs on my bottom - now on a steroid from my primary care physician, Ivy was recommended by a friend that was in a car accident - the pain in hands, wrists and feet were taken on by David - he is soothing, joyous, helpful, knowledgeable and I feel totally cured when I leave the facility like its magic - its not a chore, its healing and about coming back to normal - I am quite impressed!!
13:47 25 Mar 21
Very open, up front, and friendly staff, highly reccomend
22:09 03 Mar 21
I'm so glad I chose Ivy Rehab for my post knee replacement surgery. My therapist, David Rivera, is so knowledgeable that when I had other issues that popped up post-surgery, he was able to adjust my therapy and treat my whole body, not just my knee. As I healed, he was flexible with my treatment plan and even added exercises specific to the activities I wanted to be able to do. He is not short of amazing and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing PT.
17:17 15 Feb 21
Ivy Rehab is absolutely the best! The therapists are knowledgeable, kind and motivating!
19:22 07 Feb 21
David Rivera helped me recover from my ankle injury very quickly and made physical therapy fun! Highly recommend!
23:24 04 Feb 21
I received Physical Therapy back in October of 2020. My therapist was David Rivera, there are many things that I can say about how wonderful of a man and therapist he is but I'll focus on this. David puts a lot of care, time, effort and love into ensuring his clients are receiving the best therapy possible. David went out of his way to ask how I was feeling upon every arrival. He did not push too hard and made sure that I was comfortable at all times. On top of that David gets to know you on a personal level. During the therapy session he talked with me about my goals and aspirations in life. There were many times I forgot that I was receiving the therapy thats how comfortable he made me feel. He also makes the environment of the clinic very welcoming. He greets everyone with a smile (under a mask of course) and a warming hello. Along with David's therapy, the clinic itself was very clean, comforting and well kept up. The entire staff there is incredible, I highly recommend Ivy Rehab, especially this location.
18:31 29 Jan 21
I went to Ivy Rehab for chronic back pain and received superb care and treatment! My therapist David was very attentive and caring and he set treatment goals that were personalized and attainable for my busy schedule. The clinic was kept at top notch cleanliness and all covid protocols were followed to keep myself and staff safe. I would highly recommend David Rivera and his team to others.
21:05 28 Jan 21
David Rivera treated me for a leg injury over the summer. David was very helpful and knowledgeable during my rehab. He provided excellent treatment during my visits and coached me through exercises and stretches that I could do on my own to get me back on the field quicker than expected. I would definitely recommend David for all your PT needs.
04:20 27 Jan 21
David Rivera is such a good person, kind, so friendly and always listen. Thank you very much for all your help, been in pain so many years but now Happy to say Pain Free..Outstanding therapist. Highly recommended!!!
21:27 23 Jan 21
David Rivera helped me get through an old injury that re-flared in about half the time that it took the first time. Not only is he super knowledgeable but also very caring. He goes above and beyond for his patients. Thanks to him I am dancing and running again pain free. So grateful I took a chance with him and will recommend all my friends and family go see him!
18:10 23 Jan 21
Second time seeing David for a second kind of chronic pain. He created a plan that gave me tools to use when pain flares up at home. Very happy with his care and attention to my needs.
01:51 21 Jan 21
Thanks to David Rivera at Ivy Rehab for getting me through my hip pain and back to running. He is kind, compassionate and thorough in his care. I highly recommend his services!
01:36 21 Jan 21
Great place and Great people!
01:22 21 Jan 21
I was treated by David Rivera for pre and post rehab/treatment due to my my ACL injury & then reconstruction surgery during the entire year of 2020.I can, honestly, say that was the 1 & only GREAT thing to come out of that year! I’m all healed up and back to teaching my fitness classes with a new and improved rehabbed knee. Let’s go!
21:47 19 Jan 21
Absolutely loved my experience at this clinic with David Rivera. I was only with them for a little over a week and saw so much improvement. David has such a friendly and encouraging personality. This is the third time I've been in physical therapy for my knee and the first time at this clinic, and this round was the only time I saw improvement.
21:10 08 Jan 21
01:58 28 Nov 20
I highly recommend Ivy Rehab and David Rivera & team. David has a kind, friendly and professional manner as well as fantastic physical therapy skills. I am post knee replacement and heard horror stories about how painful physical therapy is for this condition. David strikes an equal balance of pushing for range of motion and recovery but not past a pain rating of 4. I actually look forward to going to therapy because I feel better each time I am finished! I wish I could give them more than five stars :)

I’ve been to many PT offices. This is the one where I learned the most in how to take care of my aches and pains, and to relearn a better gait. Lots of good take home material to work with. Thank you to David, Pat and Maritza for educating me and having great motivating music to boot!
20:26 02 Nov 20
My back issues brought me to Ivy rehab. My wife referred me to the Libertyville office as she had related that her experience was wonderful. And I have to agree with her. My therapist is very knowledgeable and personable. I would recommend them.
13:59 02 Nov 20
I have been so impressed with David's care that I have followed him to Libertyville. He is extremely knowledgeable and the exercises he prescribes are always spot on. In addition to being an excellent therapist, he is professional, accommodating, compassionate, responsive and an exceptionally good listener. He is personable and easy to talk to and it's evident that he really wants to help people!
19:00 20 Oct 20
David Rivera at Ivy Rehab is by far the best physical therapist I have ever seen. He is incredibly knowledgeable and had my back feeling much better within a couple of visits, and 90 percent better after a few weeks. I have had other experiences with physical therapy that I dreaded going to because I knew I would be in pain. David made me stop if I was in pain and I went out of his office each time feeling better! He asks genuine questions about how you are doing and listens to your answer. I watched as he worked with others and how every client felt they were the most important there. The rest of the staff at Ivy were professional and kind as well. I can’t say enough great things and am very thankful for their help! I have and will continue to refer everyone I know to the Libertyville Ivy Rehab!

I was recommended to visit Ivy Rehab Physical Therapy for my back pain. I had a remote session with David Rivera. I was impressed with his genuine desire to help. He didn't just read a chart and take me through the recommended procedures... He went through my history of back pain, trying to get the most clear picture of my situation as possible in order to come up with a truly personalized treatment. Treatment was great and my back feels so much better! Thank you for the great treatment and personalized attention.

David is extremely attentive, caring, compassionate, and just really, really great at his profession. He is warm and welcoming, and makes himself available to you and can answer any questions that you may have. I saw David with a severe sprain in my right (throwing) elbow. At the time I was in a bowling league and playing baseball. David was able to help me get well enough to finish out the bowling season, and had me on the field playing the game I love in about 4 weeks. It did take the full 6-8 weeks before I could start really throwing again, but with David's help, I was able to be on the field and helping my team before that (even if it was limited).The level of education that David provides as well is amazing. He not only helps you, and gives you your at home work, but he walks you through and thoroughly explains why you are doing certain exercises and how they relate to the kinetic chain and every day movement. My only wish is that I could work with David all the time!David goes above and beyond to care for everyone that walks into his office. I highly recommend going to see David for all of your Physical Therapy needs!

Team at this Ivy location has been excellent. My injury was nagging and needed treatment to help me get back in active form. David put together a program and got me back on my feet (ankles).I recommend this location to friends and they shared the same positive reviews.Great work, thank you.

Thank you David Rivera at Ivy Rehab in Libertyville for rehabing me after my total hip replacement! Your care and expertise, concern for my well being and large network of professionals made my PT a healing experience. I had great confidence after several sessions that I was in great hands. I would highly recommend you and your staff. Debbie H.

I walked into Ivy absolutely certain my right knee needed an MRI, and surgery but agreed to PT for a few weeks just to be sure. After working with David and Pat - the knee pain that I've been experiencing off and on for YEARS has finally disappeared. Day ONE David recognized my walking mechanics were completely off, and started me on a recovery journey to not only correct my walk, but to strengthen my bad knee, ankles, hips, etc so that holistically I could walk properly moving forward. SIMPLY amazing and HIGHLY recommend this team in Libertyville. The incredibly clean, comfortable and fully equipped facility is tucked away in a very nice building in Libertyville. Thank you David and Pat for making my time a very positive experience and would HIGHLY recommend everyone to trust in these folks.

02:43 27 Aug 20
This was my first time experiencing physical therapy and it couldn’t have been better! Great customer service and all staff were welcoming. They were also very flexible and accommodating with schedule changes. Highly recommend.

I’ve had many ortho surgeries, and have experienced many, many physical therapies. David, at the Libertyville location, is, hands-down, the best PT I’ve ever had. He connects with his clients in so many ways. His technique is fantastic, his patience and kindness are endless, and he’s as genuine as a person an be. He is willing to listen and find the best therapy that’s works for you in order to obtain the best results.
02:34 12 Aug 20
I have nothing but praise for the staff and facilities at Ivy Rehab of Libertyville. David Rivera is as knowledgeable and professional as they come. Through his guidance and PT, I was able to return to work in a timely and healthy manner.Maritza helps run a tight ship with her front office skills.If you need physical therapy for any type of injury, Ivy Rehab of Libertyville is the place you need to go!
15:10 22 Jul 20
After having a long standing hip injury I was referred to Ivy Rehab for PT and it was an awesome experience! David Rivera took the time to ask questions and really pinpoint the problem. He is super knowledgeable and explained each exercise and reasoning for why each was being done. David got me back to where I wanted to be and I’m back to my full exercise routine without pain! Thanks to David and his team for being so welcoming and professional!
12:36 14 Jul 20
David Rivera is an amazing PT! I had a few related injuries and went through a few other PTs before finding him, and he was the best by far! He is very knowledgeable, thorough, and personable. Within weeks I saw more improvement in my range, strength, and pain with him compared to months with other PTs that just were not as knowledgeable, attentive, and hands on. I highly recommend him for any PT needs! And an added perk, his Patient Coordinator, Maritza, is just wonderful! She is very sweet, helpful, and on top of things!
01:31 12 Jul 20
I’ve worked with a ton of PTs for a variety of sports injuries throughout my life. David Rivera is the best PT I’ve worked with by far. I won’t go anywhere else. He really takes time to figure out and isolate the physical issue and is very knowledgeable about techniques for healing, strengthening, and stabilizing injured areas of the body.

This was my first time that I ever needed physical therapy. I worked with a bunch of people who had used physical therapy before and when I attempted to call those places they were all booked. I happened to google physical therapy and came across Ivy therapy. It was close to my house so I decided to call them, and WOW was that the best thing that I ever did. David Rivera answered the phone and instantly made me a priority. I am a local firefighter/paramedic and hurt myself off duty. I expressed to David that I needed to get back to work a soon as possible and David literally met with me the next day which was a Saturday! When I met with David I instantly knew I was in good hands. He was knowledgeable and truly cares about the people he treats. Like most injuries, there were many bumps in the road as part of the recovery process, and David always Knew what to say or what to do to help me through them. If you want to feel like your the only patient they have, then you have to go to David! It is great to see when someone truly loves what they do and It always shows. David and the staff were always friendly, always accommodating. I could not have had a better experience.
03:22 28 Jun 20
Just finished six weeks of rehabilitation with David for a hand injury, post-surgery. David's very knowledgable - he came up with a recovery plan after our first meeting, we stuck to it, and I have strength and mobility in my wrist again. Him and Maritza were super accommodating throughout the entire pandemic situation and I already miss having rehab in my weekly schedule.
19:37 26 Jun 20
David does a great job treating his patients, have never seen more professionalism than David he is truly fantastic at his job !
19:24 26 Jun 20
Amazing people and super fun. I always hated physical therapy but this place has a very relaxed environment and let’s you kind of just do what you want to do and feel better after it. I started going because my knees were acting up again and I could barely walk. As someone in their 20’s, it wasn’t comforting so I came here from a recommendation and my knees feel better ever since
15:01 10 Mar 20
00:06 01 Mar 20
The physical therapy I received was amazing I was back to 100% and ready to play like that. David is a real person that cares and will listen to what you have to say. I would highly recommend this guy he is great.
00:32 25 Feb 20
David Rivera was highly recommended by my doctor. His office was not close to home but I wanted to give him a try for my daughter. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional and he took his time understanding her issue. His treatments are very thorough and his soft tissue massage technique was very effective. He also has a fun personality. He was definitely worth the drive and now I recommend him to friends.

This past June 2019 I injured my left ACL and tore both meniscus. Post surgical repair I was recovering on target until my phase 4 recovery when I was placed in a phase 4 recovery group program. My mom was not happy with my progress after 2 weeks and a family friend mentioned David Rivera and Ivy Rehab Libertyville. We went for an evaluation and knew immediately this is where I needed to be! Once I switched to IVY Rehab I received one on one Rehab and within 2 weeks we noticed so much improvement my mom cried! The past several months with IVY Rehab my growth, strength, etc has increased. I no longer favor my right leg, I mentally and physically feel stronger to return to sports and daily life! Could not have done it with out David and the IVY team!
18:10 30 Jan 20
I have had nothing but professionalism and genuine concern in helping to rehab tendinitis in my shoulder along with extreme flexibility in scheduling.
15:18 30 Jan 20
David and Mikhail were extremely welcoming and accommodating. I hadn't had the best experiences with physical therapists before them, but they were especially great to work with. They are very experienced and knowledgeable. I could tell they genuinely wanted to ensure they could do everything to help with my recovery. When I finished my sessions with them, my dad soon after started with them and has already seen a lot of improvement after less than a week. I already miss them!
20:15 29 Jan 20
I go there almost 3 times a week and it is a great environment and the workers are very kind and work with your schedule. I enjoy my time there and I have actually gotten better since starting at ivy rehab physical therapy.
14:08 28 Jan 20
My son has been playing soccer from the age of 4 and has experienced many injuries. After multiple visits to different facilities, we were recommended to come here. Within weeks my son was doing a lot better and playing with less pain. That's all I could ask for! All of the staff are great and friendly with amazing services.
17:25 26 Jan 20
My daughter has received amazing post ACL reconstruction physical therapy services from IVY Rehab! David Rivera and team have been a combination of emotional and physical rehab support that my child required to get her prepared to play high school sports again! We are so thankful for the physical and mental confidence she has gained working with them to begin focusing on health for her future!
19:26 24 Jan 20
Had a great experience with this practice. Loved Migual.. best PT ever !!! Helped me recover from my torn rotator cuff injury and avoid surgery.
17:42 20 Jan 20
This was the first ever physical therapist I’ve ever gone to and David and his crew were absolutely amazing. The first time I went to ivy rehab I was kinda nervous but they made me feel welcomed and each time I went there they made me feel welcomed and David and his crew are very good and deeply care for his patients. I would recommend anyone to go here they are amazing people and therapists
17:12 11 Nov 19
I had never been to Physical Therapy before and was skeptical that it could help. After several sessions with the people at Ivy Rehab I am pain free and a true believer. They are caring, knowledgeable and amazing to work with. I highly recommend them!
21:05 08 Nov 19
I've had a very good experience at this facility. Dave has alot of experience , he's attentive ,and he's watching you when you think he isn't. I have had my share of time in rehab over the years, this is the only facility where the therapist spends the necessary time hands on to soften the affected tissue. Dave has alot of positive energy, and it was easy to place trust in him.
00:06 21 Oct 19
Nothing but wonderful things to say about Ivy Rebab in Libertyville. David was attentive and very knowledgeable, and always made himself available for any questions or concerns throughout recovery. Highly recommend!
23:30 30 Sep 19
Worked with David for 6+ months and he’s by far the best physical therapist i’ve had. David provides great care for all of his patients and takes time to really get to know you. He actually wants to help you get better! Definitely my go-to therapist for injuries.
19:52 30 Sep 19
Been working with David for over a year now and absolutely love him. Greatest mentor and physical therapist I’ve ever had.

I've had more than my share of PT over the years. Rotator cuff, knees, hernia, ruptured biceps, get the idea. A new one for me, though, was vertigo, specifically BPPV, or what is commonly called positional vertigo. I slow-crashed my bicycle, and thought I was having a stroke. Turns out it's not that uncommon, and while lots of folks spend time and money with an ENT, a qualified PT who has experience with vertigo is more likely to get you "cured". I initially went to this location when Ryan was the sole practitioner as North Suburban PT, but when he moved on I figured I'd give the new guys (Ivy) a try. VERY glad I did. David Rivera is one of the most personable, knowledgeable and caring PT's I've encountered. He has a relaxed confidence, great sense of humor, and magical hands. Since I cycle, dive and snowboard, I NEED to feel confident that I'm not going to have an episode of vertigo that could be dangerous. Life threatening, I suppose. After a few visits, I am confident that I am back to normal, know the signs of onset, and can perform the necessary self-help that will alleviate the symptoms. Not to mention that David snuck in some good advice about building better core strength and posture for cycling. Whatever ails you, if it's something that can be helped with PT, David is the guy to see!

David is a very knowledgeable and skilled physical therapist. He has treated me for a complex issue with a personalized and detailed care plan tailored to my needs. As a healthcare provider myself, I appreciate the individual approach David has taken with my case, incorporating me and my lifestyle into exercises that I can complete at home or work. I would not hesitate recommending him to a new client.
00:18 10 Apr 19
One only been there four times, so far. The doctors are saying I need my back worked as in surgery. David made me do some stretches without pain proving it is not the back!. But other stretches showed it to be my hip. I like the hip.option better than the back!!!!
14:01 03 Apr 19
Ivy Rehab is a great place for physical therapy. My Dad is receiving treatment from David Rivera for his arm and wrist . He is very caring and and knows exactly what pt he needs . I highly recommend this place.
15:10 28 Mar 19
I can’t say enough about the Grade A attention and care David provides at Ivy Rehab-Libertyville. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. If you want compassionate, comprehensive and excellent care, then go see David at Ivy Rehab Libertyville.

David is the king of cure. I can hit a baseball 450 feet because of him and I am getting Machado offers
16:37 27 Mar 19
I have been extremely satisfied with the care at Ivy Rehab. My whole experience has been 5 ⭐️. David has a great personality and is very professional when working with all of his patients. He is always attentive to everyone he is working with. He explains what our treatment is in each visit. David never hesitates to answer any questions I might have.I have and will continue to refer people to Ivy Rehab!
15:37 18 Mar 19
David is excellent. He has always treated me with the care and guidance as if it were his own injury. In the PT world, the care and effort you are receiving are critical into the recovery. David excels in this regard, combine that with his knowledge and treatment abilities, a PT like that is rare to come.
02:44 14 Mar 19
David is an exceptional PT. Incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and professional. You could not ask for a better PT!
15:29 13 Mar 19
With this being my first experience having PT I was not sure what to expect. I basically looked up Rehab places in the area and chose this one initially by location. After my first visit I knew I chose the right place to do my PT. From the phone call to the visits and dealing with the staff it has been a seamless experience. I highly recommend this place. I have already referred friends to Ivy Rehab.David and Jacqueline are both great and make you feel welcome from the get go.
19:33 14 Feb 19
Ryan is a terrific PT. He is very caring and knowledgeable, and makes your recovery a priority. Upon completion of my visits, he set me up with a personalized home exercise program, which is proving to be extremely helpful in minimizing my discomfort. Also, if you ever suffer from vertigo, call Ryan. He performed a procedure which cured my vertigo in one visit!

Ryan is a lifesaver! I had a lumbar disc out of place with a contorted torso. He worked it out and let me enjoy life again.
