Absolutely love the atmosphere in the clinic. Hetal is so kind and informative. She was very patient in explaining all the exercises. Kristina on the other hand is always welcoming and answers any questions you have. Those who need PT should definitely visit here . Highly recommended by me.
I have had to use ivy Rehab for a hip injury and shoulder issue. My daughter has been going for a groin pull. We have received excellent care. We love the upbeat vibe that Kristina brings when you first walk in and have seen great improvement with our respective issues. Hetal manages the clinic wonderfully. We also love Elias and Matt. They all really focus on our target areas and work together to help us get results.
If you're considering any flavor of physical therapy, you owe it to yourself to check out Ivy Rehab in Libertyville. From Kristina's warm and inviting greeting up front to Hetal, Elias and Matt's patient-centered approach, each visit feels like coming home. I've been rehabbing my shoulder at Ivy-Libertyville for the last 4 months and couldn't be more happy with the results - they push me hard for my own good, and all with a pleasant smile and clear understanding of why the exercise is important to my recovery. Thank you, Hetal, Elias, Matt and Kristina!!!
Hetel has been amazing!! I experienced an injury while training for a race and she not only put me back on track in record time, but provided me with education and insights regarding follow up stretches and training that I need to do.
Caring, thoughtful and expert p.t.I’m a new person since I have been going to my sessions.They, also cured my visual motion sensitivity.Their team gets 10 stars.
I started here with lower back and neck pain from a fall. My chiropractor had recommended them. They are wonderful! Elias has made all the difference in the world. Pain has been much relieved! I can move my neck better. Before, I could hardly walk a half mile without my pain increasing. I walked a mile a couple days ago, at a faster pace and with NO pain! Everyone there is warm and friendly. Christina, the receptionist, is very professional and nice. Makes you feel very welcome. I had tried another PT facility a while back, but they did nothing for me. I would recommend IVY PT.
What a wonderful place to get healthy! The people here are super friendly and actually seem to care about tour care. I never feel rushed or neglected. I definitely recommend this place.
I came here with a knee injury and was very hesitant to work with a new PT Clinic but these guys did a fantastic job of making me comfortable and addressing the issues at hand.I had the opportunity to work with Elias and the man is super knowledgeable and very detailed to the program. He addressed not only my knee but other aches and pains that were preventing my day to day functionality.My only regret is not going to him more but with a 7 month old, it's hard to maintain all schedules. Elias was very flexible on the days and times I could meet and overall he did a fantastic job.Safe to say, I'm back to running and jumping like I did in my 20s and kudos to the Ivy Rehab team to make it happen.Hopefully we don't have to see each other soon but if I do have an injury again Ivy Rehab is my first call! 😁
I had a knee injury that limited me in playing basketball. Elias and Hetal got me back to 100%. Kristina at the front was very personable as well. I recommend this place to everyone!
I just completed an 8-week session of physical therapy at Ivy, and I cannot recommend the team at Ivy-Libertyville enough. Hetal was my primary PT, but I also saw Mike and Elias during my treatment. All three of them are highly professional, excellent PT’s and I would have no problem recommending any of them. On all my visits, they listened to what I was telling them regarding how my body was responding to treatment and they adjusted my treatment plan accordingly. It was clear they spoke with each other, as each of them were able to report what the other had communicated to them about my treatment plan. I was given personalized attention during my appointments and always felt the staff was invested in my success. The rehab exercises were challenging and tiring, but the proof is in the pudding as they say. When I showed up at Ivy initially, I could barely bend my elbow without pain and could not lift much. Over the course of 8 weeks of treatment, my pain greatly subsided, and I can get back to being active and doing things that I want to do. If I ever need physical therapy again, my first call will be to Ivy Rehab – Libertyville.
I went to Ivy at the recommendation of my pediatrist for plantar fasciitis. They were great. and really seemed to care about me.I mainly worked with Mike and Erica and found them amazing. When I finished and the plantar fasciitis went away, they provided some exercises that I can continue to do and prevent plantar fasciitis again.I really liked the exercise ap they provided. It showed videos on how to do the exercises and then prompted you through the program.The office is really efficient. The person who works the front desk is amazing and always wants to get to know the patients.Over all, I had a great experience and would return if I needed PT.
My first PT experience was an educational, positive 5 star experience. From reception to all the staff my interaction was always friendly, encouraging and fun. Erika developed exercises to strength and increase flexibility. After graduating, I continue to use the exercises Erika developed for me and am very pleased with my improvement. I highly recommend Erika and the staff at Libertyville Ivyrehab.
I had a great experience attending physical therapy at Ivy. My therapist Erika was very good listener of my needs and pains located, she gave me bunch of recommendations to continue working on the gym and also was very friendly. I learned about my body and how to manage my after-discharge minimum pain with daily exercises. Also the massages and dry needles were a relief for my body. I’m very thankful with Erika, Hetal, David, and all the team, always with a warm and respectful attitude!!! 100% recommended and I will be back if I need it!!!
David and his team were great. They worked diligently with me while constantly pushing me to improve. They listened to all my concerns and came up with a plan that worked well. Thank you!
Super clean and modern facility with knowledgeable and caring staff. David really has my best interest in mind and shares my passion of physical fitness and wellness. Highly recommend Ivy for your PT needs.
I’ve had TMJ issues for years and finally pursued treatment. I initially worked with Erika to address neck issues that were also contributing to my TMJ dysfunction. She put together a treatment plan which helped me regain my range of motion in my neck. Then I worked with David who continued the work on my neck and jaw via massage and funny TMJ exercises. They also helped when I suffered from vertigo. I had an episode while at therapy, which Erika assessed and fixed after a couple maneuvers. Everyone was great and you could really tell that they cared. Even on their busier days, you didn’t feel ignored. Highly recommend.
My second stint with the Ivy team. Would not consider anyone else. Highly recommended by my IM and Pain Doc and they facilitate improvement and results. Anyone who needs dedicated, caring and professional PTs should contact Ivy.
a personal touch friendly atmosphere and very professional environment.
Erika and David and the whole staff at Ivy Rehab are just the best. Relaxed, go-at-your-own pace healing, with good conversation and fun music. I'm a little sad that I am completely healed.
It is my great pleasure to highly recommend Malgorzata Byczko,aka Gosia—a very skilled Physical Therapist who is truly dedicated to the well being of her patients.Gosia takes time to understand her patient's condition and then creates a plan for their treatment. She explains everything so the patient is aware of what needs to be done and is put at ease.She definitely cares for her patients.Thank you very much for making me feel so much better!The entire staff of Ivy Rehab Libertyville shares Gosia'senthusiasm for professional care.Highly recommended!
Linda Dunton referred David Rivera to me. I am having trouble with back pain & pain traveling down my left leg. David has been wonderful & has a great knowledge of how the spine & back work. He is very gentle with the massage. I two weeks, I am doing better!
Dislocated my knee and 1.5 months later I’m back to normal.
I strained my calf in August, and for the first few days I couldn't even walk. I am a regular runner, so you can imagine that I wanted to get back out there without fear of further injury. My doctor referred me to Ivy Rehab in Libertyville. I have been to physical therapy before (torn ACL), so I have a reasonable idea of what quality PT looks like. I will briefly mention a few aspects of Ivy Rehab that impressed me.1) Facilities: My first session was apparently one of the first after they moved to the corner of Butterfield and 137. Their facilities are clean, well organized, and spacious, and they clearly intend to keep it that way, with sanitizer and cleaning at the ready. They have a wide variety of equipment as well, ready to service all types of rehab plans. I personally used their treadmill and a number of their balancing and stretching tools as part of my rehab. Everything worked beautifully.2) Staff/Culture: Everyone there, from the receptionist (Rebecca), to my therapist (Erika) treated me very kindly from the moment I hobbled in, to the time I left, and every time I called. It is clear that David (location manager) cultivates an excellent and closely knit, positive team culture. The staff all seem to enjoy being there and working together. They also always worked with my schedule to help ensure I could get in when it worked for me. My experience with the staff was extremely positive.3) Treatment: For me, this is the most important part. My therapist's name was Erika Eisland. She was both personable and professional. She analyzed my situation, and immediately created a more-than-suitable treatment plan. Her muscle and kinesthetic knowledge was impressive, as she seemed to fully understand my injury and how to get me back to full functionality. She helped me set the right expectations and develop the right practices, and she adjusted my treatment plan to adapt to my progress. She is also a great conversationalist, and was able to help me feel at ease as I began and worked through the treatment. When you know you have something (or someone) good, you don't want to let them go, and I would definitely choose to see her again should another injury arise. Thankfully, Erika provided me with a solid plan going forward to help ensure another injury would not happen. She is a solid, competent professional who is definitely in the right line of work.Overall, I had a very good experience at Ivy Rehab. 10/10. Highly recommended. I am fully recovered, back to running and normal physical activity, and very thankful.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 % 😊
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!!!!
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.
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.
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!
Ivy Rehab is amazing! Everyone is so knowledgeable and genuinely cares about your recovery! Highly recommend!!
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!
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
