Every one is very nice helpful. I was referred by next door neighbor Sherri.
16:18 27 Nov 22
This physical therapy practice has a small town feel. They are very knowledgeable, personable, and knew just what to do after my achilles tendon surgery. They are very caring and always make you feel comfortable. I would recommend Ivy Rehab to everyone!

I am so glad I found Ivy Rehab and Diana! No other therapy could get me scheduled before a month after my injury, but Colleen got me in that week!! I had an MCL tear in my knee, and Diana has been amazing working a program for me and making sure I got my range of motion and stability back. I am almost done with my treatment, and more than thankful for my recovery so far.

Alexis is great. She is helping me get recovered from my injury. She is very nice. She Also loves to have fun, so the time flys.
20:50 21 Feb 22
Our 7 year old has been working with Jordan for a couple months and we’ve been amazed by her creativity, energy, and flexibility as she engages him. She naturally makes it fun and exciting for him and is great at moving him out of a funk when he loses motivation. We’ve had great interactions with all staff we’ve met and overall, been so very impressed with this practice!

These people are top notch therapists....I am beyond happy with the progress I made after having a total knee replacement. They are all very personable, knowledgeable and genuinely care about their clients! If I'm ever in a position where I'm needing physical therapy again, this is where you'll find me....😀

I can’t recommend Dave Sefton enough! I came in with three different things that needed work. We made goals for each area and then he figured out how to get me there. Using a combination of exercise, dry needling and e-stim, my body felt better than it has in years.
11:53 03 Jun 21
Northern Physical Therapy is absolutely the best. I had back surgery 5 months before finally going to physical therapy. It wasn't exactly required by my surgeon, and when I asked him about PT he stated to just "do some planks at home, and don't gain any more weight and you should be fine." So, after 5 months of unfulfilled expectations in my healing process, I started to see what else I could do. So I called Northern PT, set up an appointment (which was pretty simple), and boom, here I am on weekends feeling soo much better already. Every person that I've worked with there has been amazing. They ask alot of questions to better understand the problem and the pain I'm having and even modify my "workouts" or sessions to shift with how my body responds to movement. Thank you everyone for all that you do and empower others to do!
13:32 30 Apr 21
Everyone is super friendly right from the time you call to set up an appointment. Dr. Sefton was great at explaining my shoulder injury so I understood how it was healing and strengthening. Overall a great experience with great results!
13:17 16 Apr 21
Dave and Co. at Northern PT have done wonders for my shoulders. They're always encouraging and positive, and as a result of their work, I'm on my way to recovery (and avoiding surgery). Highly recommended.
19:25 15 Apr 21
Such a pleasant place. Have made great progress with shoulder. Staff really knows their stuff!
22:21 30 Mar 21
I love this place and would not recommend any other place for physical therapy. Dave and staff are the best!! I have been going to them after having knee surgery and being on crutches for 8 weeks. The staff has not only made me want to give my personal best but I have also seen some amazing results when I just couldn't do something one way, so they modified it until I could. You may walk in knowing that you will be doing a lot of work, but they make it fun and everyday is like a personal goal.
10:11 25 Mar 21
Northern Physical therapy really is as good as it sounds. My experience there has been amazing. Dave and the entire staff have made me feel right at home at Northern. The workouts and stretches I was given were easy to perform at home which helped aid in the healing process. I Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a Physical Therapist in the Lowell area.
23:26 23 Mar 21
I was referred here to help with my neck pains and a past leg injury and have loved it! The staff is all so friendly and encouraging. They have really helped with the tension in my neck and shoulders and never would've known that the dry needling they offer would have been an option. 100% would recommend to a friend or family member!
21:19 23 Mar 21
Worked great around my sports and work schedule and I’m seeing positive results.
22:42 22 Mar 21
Dave and his staff were great to work with. I steadily progressed with my therapy. He walked me through every step of the way. Can't recommend enough.
21:52 22 Mar 21
After struggling with back pain for 6+ weeks I made an appt at Northern Physical Therapy. David was very informative and helpful. He walked me through some exercises which gave me pain relief almost immediately. I was able to continue doing the exercises at home and my back pain is now completely gone. The clinic fit me in for an appt quickly and everyone was extremely helpful and kind.
23:02 26 Feb 21
I can not say enough about the staff at Northern Physical Therapy. They do a great job of getting to know each client and making sure that they are not only doing the appropriate exercises to help the injury but understand why they are doing the exercises. If you are in need of physical therapy go to Northern Physical Therapy!
23:58 24 Feb 21
My experience at Northern Physical Therapy in Lowell has been absolutely amazing! The atmosphere is welcoming and uplifting and the people are incredible. The physical therapist Dave is one of the nicest and most encouraging people I’ve ever met and has been the physical therapist for my sister, mom, and I. He is invested in helping us get better and also interested in our day to day lives. He’s the easiest to talk to and is a great listener!! The receptionist Colleen is also very sweet and talkative. She’s always open to chat about anything. She’s a light spirit and is constantly smiling. I definitely recommend coming here for your physical therapy needs because you won’t regret it!
15:12 12 Feb 21
Very knowledgeable staff fixed my back pain issue that I had seen other Physical Therapists about in a very short time. I highly recommend!
01:23 06 Feb 21
Very friendly people at Northern Physical Therapy. Great listeners, and concerned that treatment is addressing your pain.
13:47 01 Feb 21

20:10 22 Dec 20
The staff scheduling appointments were very helpful to find consecutive days/times that would work for me and Dave was AMAZING, patient and knowledgeable.
21:16 11 Dec 20
After a sports injury and finding out my daughter needed surgery we were sent to Northern Physical therapy to lower swelling so she could have the surgery. Unfortunately she had another injury a week prior to surgery but we had an amazing therapist! He worked with my daughter to restore confidence and using the therapy to help her regain movement and lessen pain. I can say Dave at Northern Physical therapy deserves well more then 5 stars for what he does! I highly recommend him and his practice at NPT!
16:10 11 Dec 20
This place is awesome and Dave in the staff are awesome people they totally helped me get back on my feet with my total knee replacement I am recommending anybody that needs physical therapy to give them a try first you will not be disappointed
13:21 11 Dec 20
Dave and the staff here at Northern Physical Therapy are amazing and positive people. I am so glad I came here to receive help for my lower back and plantar fasciitis. Dave was extremely helpful, straightforward, and encouraging. I am strongly recommending Dave and his team to anybody that needs physical therapy.
00:32 03 Dec 20
Went in with “tennis elbow “. It would cause my arm to often go numb or my elbow to become stiff and ache a lot . I could not pick up a full gallon of milk. I Worked with David who taught me some simple exercises,within a couple of sessions my pain was gone. It was amazing . I cannot recommend enough. Everyone there is friendly and professional. I will not hesitate to use again, if I have to.
14:46 20 Nov 20
My chronic symptoms have been a bit stubborn but Dave's encouragement, expertise and treatment have kept me going. I was unable to run 1/4 mile when I started and now I am up to 5+ miles, and with better form.
13:54 20 Nov 20
Dave and the staff are awesome. I am from out of town, but was looking for a massage. They asked me if I was interested in trying dry needling to help with some of my hip pain. Dave has been so helpful and determined to help me. I live three hours away. I stop to see him every time I am in town. He works with me has while I am in town and has helped me locate another cert MDT to help me locally!
20:23 06 Nov 20
I was nervous for pelvis floor therapy, but Gina was incredible at creating an environment in which I felt safe and comfortable. Gina is very thorough, which I appreciate so much as a person with multiple diagnoses. I have been going to physical therapy all across Grand Rapids for years, and very often, my therapist become stumped on what to do to avoid aggregating my back. Most the go to techniques aggravate my pain but Gina is well rounded and knows how to work around it. That is something no one has been able to do for me yet. She also beams with positive and encourages wellness. I really enjoy working with Gina, and I know you will too!
01:31 06 Nov 20
19:35 29 Oct 20
I have to say what a great experience I have had with my PT. Everyone is so kind yet strict. They are there to push you to get you back to 100%. This is my second time using them, first after a hip replacement, now rotator cuff repair. I would recommend the Lowell branch to anyone in need. Thanks David for pushing me!
01:27 22 Oct 20
Dr. Dave is great, all staff is very compassionate and knowledgeable about what type of injury you have to get you back to a normal life. Would recommend this business be your first stop if you need any type of therapy.
19:51 11 Oct 20
My experience was wonderful. The people were very friendly, and they listened to my goals and helped me to achieve them.
13:31 26 Sep 20
The physical therapist is very compassionate, friendly, professional and truly cares about your plan of care and helping you meet your goals.
20:53 21 Sep 20
Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff. They seem to want to help you in what ever way you need.
11:21 11 Jul 20
My experience at Northern Physical Therapy has been outstanding.Ihave worked with bot therapists, David and Sara, and they have kept me moving forward towards eliminating plantar fasciitis. And the hot needle process has made my progress even faster.And Colleen is great at scheduling my appointments and helping if I need to shift the time.
23:59 11 Mar 20
Would recommend Northern Physical Therapy to anyone! Great to have them right here in Lowell. They gave me great exercises that I could manage in between visits and were always encouraging my progress. A very positive experience! Thank You NPT ❤️
04:28 06 Mar 20
I have been going to Northern p.t. for 3 weeks now, everyone is very friendly. I get good therapy, Dave is really a great therapist, I am happy I chose to go there. It always is clean and bright . I get a good workout, tired when I am done but look forward to going the next time. I recommend this place to anyone who needs physical therapy
21:32 28 Feb 20
I am so impressed with the expertise and gentle compassion I got from working with David. His assessment of my hip pain and showing me the exercises to relieve it was amazing and effective. I would highly recommend Northern Physical Therapy to anyone!
14:42 26 Feb 20
I fully enjoy the team at Lowell! David and Sarah are highly skilled and passionate about the people they work with.
00:44 13 Feb 20
This place has helped me through all my pain and helped me get back to my sports and even give me motivation to keep doing what I love so thank you guys
23:01 11 Feb 20
Awesome work. Had dry needling, it helped after the first appointment.
16:18 08 Feb 20
This place and everyone that works here is awesome. Very friendly place and the best part is the results. It's a beautiful thing to not be in pain!
23:04 03 Feb 20
I have and will continue to recommend NPT for pain results. I took advantage of Northern PT's program, Coffee & Consults, with no referral necessary for the first visit. I left after that first visit feeling so much better. With therapy and the support of David and his staff, my knee pain is now manageable as I await knee replacement, with therapy sessions planned post surgery. They take the time to explain your current situation and explain and answer questions on how to proceed to recovery. We are very fortunate to have them in our community. I don't know where I would be had I not given them a call! Thanks to David and his staff!!
23:13 29 Jan 20
I've had neck and shoulder pain for years , I couldn't even lift a gallon of milk, and now I can be a active participant in my life again and I am so grateful for this place , they do a amazing job they know what they are doing!
22:51 29 Jan 20
I did not have high expectations going into physical therapy that I would make a full recovery from my accident. I have never been more happy to be proven so wrong! the clinic director David and his staff are competent, caring, and passionate about their work. David approaches recovery in a holistic manner to challenge you not just physically but mentally and emotionally as well but always with the intention of meeting realistic goals that you set together, as a team! I can not give higher praise or recommendation to this compassionate group of people.
19:51 27 Jan 20
Dr David Sefton and the staff at Northern Physical Therapy are great! I’m a veteran of several years of PT and Chiro, but David has an ability to look through the symptoms to the root of the problem and treat that instead of putting a bandaid on the symptoms. He listened patiently to me and put all the pieces together for what I think will be a breakthrough for me so I can stay active.
01:58 04 Jan 20
Excellent care and attention to detail!
15:46 16 Dec 19
This is a great place to go for physical therapy, diagnosis, dry needling, and explanations of what the problem is. I hobbled in and after working with Dave I WALKED out 20 minutes later with huge improvement and an exercise to do at home! So thankful for the care I receive here!
23:38 13 Dec 19
15:58 06 Dec 19
So glad I decided to seek treatment here. The staff are so kind and genuinely care about you. It’s a great way to start your day!

Northern Physical Therapy is the best. David and Ashley are both so knowledgeable and helpful. Cindy is super friendly and makes scheduling and billing so easy. I’ve gone for both dry needling and therapy with great results.
02:33 27 Nov 19
Dave and girls are the greatest. The first day you walk in they treat you like family. Dave tells it like it is , and how his going to get you there. By the 3rd appointment he has made your life so much better. No surgery no shots. And no pills. So please stop in and talk to them, He will change your life.
22:25 24 Nov 19
Great place for physical therapy. They did a great job with me.
22:57 22 Nov 19
Awesome awesome place! I came to Northern PT with a lot of work to-do. David was willing to listen to me and make a plan that I was comfortable with. I was challenged while I was there, but in a good way. David was extremely encouraging and so down to earth. I'm thankful for everyone at the office! This is the place to go for PT!
16:31 13 Nov 19
Dr. David Sefton is an amazing PT who is very thorough and truly cares for his patients. He treats specifically to the patient's needs by treating the symptoms rather than the specific diagnosis. It's hard to find individualized care like that anymore in the healthcare world.Thank you David for helping me.Also, a big shout out to Cyndi the Receptionist. She is so warm and inviting. Always welcoming patients with a friendly smile.Great team!
00:51 09 Nov 19
Great people who go the extra mile to make sure your are healthy and happy!

00:24 15 Oct 19

15:44 09 Oct 19
You won’t find a more caring PT than Dr. Sefton!
01:45 29 Sep 19
19:41 25 Sep 19
I have been very sore in my shoulders, hips, and back with arthritis etc. and they have worked patiently with me. I have been hurting for years getting worse and now I am getting better.
14:15 23 Sep 19
I just love Northern Physical Therapy! They treat you like family here. All of the staff here are truly amazing! My journey has not been easy here but David has been my rock and he motivates me and keeps my spirits up. He has helped me to keep pushing through this. With all of his knowledge and willingness to help me through this I am so grateful for choosing this place to get me back to my normal life.
15:02 22 Sep 19
Have had very good results with lowering my pain to just about zero and increasing my range of motion. David has worked with me to design a program that works for me and does not aggravate other issues I have. Next step will be rebuilding my strength. I am more than satisfied and having a great staff makes going here a pleasant experience.
19:42 20 Sep 19
Amazing care and great people! The Therapists on staff care and really listen to your needs. I highly recommend Northern Physical Therapy for anyone in pain.

Northern Physical Therapy is a wonderful and friendly environment with kind and knowledgeable staff. They can help you reach whatever goals that you may have for yourself-whether that is recovering from an injury or surgery, addressing pain, or improving your movement. It is a place that is truly all about the people and giving you the best possible experience!
18:53 18 Sep 19
Great people! And very helpful :)
23:59 14 Sep 19
Love the friendly attitude of staff and their knowledge of physical therapy that has helped me mentally and physically. Enjoy my visits!
18:11 13 Sep 19
The attention and care the staff gives you is outstanding. When I present atypical symptoms, Dr. David says "Interesting, let's try something else" instead of "You shouldn't be that way" which I have heard others say. What a relief knowing that my caregiver actually cares about *me* and not just looking discharge
16:27 13 Sep 19
They are patient, accommodating and amazing there! The receptionist Cyndi is the best and David Rocks!!
