Patient Centered Approach

Our therapists work closely with each patient to create the best recovery plan with individualized, professional care. Our mission is your recovery! Our goal is to get you back to the activities you enjoy without limitations. Excel physical therapists help improve quality of life through patient education, hands-on care, and personalized treatment plans. 

In addition to treatment at the clinic, patients are educated on home exercises to accelerate recovery and prevent problems from reoccurring. Our highly-trained providers and staff work as a team to provide excellent, coordinated, cost-effective physical therapy care.

What we treat

Below on this page, you’ll find the full list of what we treat and the programs we offer. A high percentage of injuries and pain syndromes result from weakness and/or tightness in neighboring regions of the musculoskeletal system. Our therapists evaluate possible compensatory patterns in addition to the area of pain or loss of function. This thorough examination allows us to better identify and eliminate all underlying causes so patients achieve lasting results. We also focus on educating you, so that you’re empowered to take control of their injury, grow stronger than ever, and prevent recurrences.

We understand the impact that pain and loss of function can have on the lives of our patients. Our entire staff, from the front desk to our clinical team, provides a compassionate and motivational environment dedicated to healing. We ensure we are meeting each patient’s unique needs so their experience is both enjoyable and rewarding.

We have extensive experience treating a variety of conditions including shoulder injuries and surgeries, knee injuries and reconstructions/replacements, spinal conditions and surgeries, sports injuries and muscle traumas, chronic and acute pain syndromes, neck conditions and surgeries, pre and post-surgical cases, geriatric conditions, work-related injuries, chronic pain conditions, lower back pain, general strains and sprains, joint replacement recovery, vestibular and balance conditions, auto accidents, and much more!

Alexis at the front desk is amazing. Insurance companies are a pain and she took the time to help me with it. Alexis’s kindness is the reason I decided to try Excel.I work with Anthony and Ben. I am so grateful I found Excel Physical Therapy. I have experienced pain for half my life, and have never gotten any relief. Ben and Anthony both take their time to listen and explain to me what is going on.I already feel relief from their care. Thank you Excel! I recommend your services to friends and family.

We’ll all I can say is my first two appointmentswhere very comforting. I was assured the could help me get my health back and I believe them .When I left there my second visit it was very rewarding, the exercises and deep massage did improve my pain level and the next day I felt much better and my tennis game improved as well.I’ll keep going til the pain goes away completely

I have to say excellent place to get therapy. Very professional and the therapy very efficient. I had to write a review because the professionalism toward my mother was over expectations and she felt very comfortable. Recommend this place very clean and very spacious.
01:13 28 Oct 21
Would like to thank Benjamin Alger for the fantastic job he did with my daughter's neck issue. He was very patient and pleasant when showing her exercises and making her feel comfortable though out all her sessions. I would highly recommend Benjamin and his team therapists at Excel Physical Therapy at the Krewstown location.
21:42 18 Oct 21
Ben is very kind and patient. When I had my down days, he encourages me and lifts me up! Though I have a long road of PT ahead, I know he will help me see the light at the end of the tunnel!Furthermore, Alexis Is wonderful! She goes above and beyond to help. Finally, the rest ofthe PT team are very supportive (Matt!).

The therapy I received with John Maxam helped me achieve my goals. He listened to what I wanted to achieve and put a therapy program in place that made this possible. I would recommend Excel for their excellences in treatment

Staff are involved with their patients. They will assist the individual and stay with their program, while giving a break or reassurance as needed.

Very caring physical therapists there. Top notch from taking care of their patients to keeping the place sanitized and clean. Ben Alger was my PT and he really helped me on my road to recovery after my knee replacement. Jaime at the front desk was awesome too! Always greeting everyone with a big hello and smile! I definitely would use them again if needed.
22:43 01 Jun 21
This was a wonderful experience. I chose this location due to its proximity to my home. My therapist was Anne. She was a wonderful person to work with. She was friendly, sympathetic to my needs and respectful.She was very knowledgeable and focused when explaining the details of my therapy and why I was doing each exercise.The property was exceptionally clean and Covid safe. They took the temperature of every patient that arrived and wiped down the equipment after every patients use.Anne’s personality was exceptional. She appeared to really enjoy her job and helping people determine the best type of exercises they needed for their therapy.I wouldn’t hesitate to return to this location if I needed physical therapy again.
13:54 20 Apr 21
The staff there are excellent. They are very knowledgeable and care about the well being of their patients. I would absolutely recommend excel physical therapy to anyone with any kind of pain.
19:09 17 Apr 21
Great place for therapy. Location is convenient, all personnel helpful and pleasant. All CDC requirements are conducted and each use of equipment. Therapists are encouraging to help you meet your goals. I would highly recommend this facility.
15:49 02 Apr 21
I had an amazing experience here. I was struggling with dizziness and my physical therapist worked with me on a weekly basis to get me back to my normal. The people here are amazing and truly care about your well-being. I would definitely recommend Excel physical therapy.
20:52 26 Mar 21
I went to Excel for vestibular therapy to help me with dizziness/vertigo. My therapist, Ben, was very knowledgeable and did a great job getting me back to normal. Thanks again.
13:13 23 Mar 21
Facility is meticulously clean. The front desk and waiting area were wiped down after ever contact. The therapists wiped down all equipment after every use. Friendly, organized, experienced receptionist. Very timely. Almost no wait time for all my appointments. Not sure it was my timing or it was their timing- but never run into crowds. Atmosphere is definitely relaxing and not intimidating at all. Therapists are extremely welcoming and friendly and knowledgeable - especially John, my therapist. Thus far, I'm very happy with this place.

Excel Physical Therapy is the go-to resource for rehabilitation. I went to them for post-surgery rotator cuff repair. Very little in my recovery went as expected but they persevered. They were attentive to “the whole” me and their treatment is focused on one person at a time; not cycling between 3 or 4. It wasn’t until when I was sitting with heat or ice at the end of your session that they began with the next person.This individual focus let them observe every little thing about your progress (or lack of progress) and correct for it going forward.Jason was my therapist. He didn’t just watch my exercises to see if I was doing them correctly, favoring one side, or trying to push through the pain too soon (which would cause a setback slowing me down). But he would listen to my weird description of the pain, translate what I meant, and figure out how to help, either immediately right there or with a new technique for me.It took longer than anyone ever expected but I’m 97% recovered and the 3% will come if I stop slacking off.I’m grateful to the Team of Excel Physical Therapy and I recommend Jason to everyone.
23:55 28 Feb 21
I came here for a shoulder injury that resulted in limited arm motion and loss of strength. My PT Seth Kaufmann was incredible! In our first session he asked me what activities I’d like to go back to and tailored a program specific to my goals, and each session he got me closer and closer to my goals. 4 weeks later Im fully recovered, I’ve re-gained full motion and strength, and I finally feel ready to back to boxing! Thanks Seth

I have used Excel PT several times and have been very pleased with the care I received. The therapists are very knowledgeable and personable. In this time of COVID, they take all precautions to keep patients safe. I highly recommend Excel PT
21:36 02 Dec 20
The best therapy place in my area
22:04 01 Dec 20
Really great staff with a friendly atmosphere. Very flexible with scheduling.
12:49 19 Nov 20
I can honestly say that if not for Matt and Excel PT I would not have the free use of my arm after shoulder surgery. I had struggles with both arms after surgery and he was able to work on the issues easily with some homework for me to do. They offered very convenient times for me to go in around my work schedule. It was clean and safe especially during COVID -19. I would not use any other physical therapy facility! They are extremely knowledgeable and professional and very friendly and welcoming. Danielle is great at the front desk and is a pleasure to see when you go in.Thank you for everything!
17:41 21 Oct 20
I had a very nice experience here. The facility is clean and the staff is friendly. My trainer, Matt Johnston was great. He was also very smart and knowledgeable on my issue (knee). He used modern techniques and was willing to adapt to my level. Lastly, he seemed to genuinely care and listen to my experiences and what I had to say. I would definitely go back and recommend Matt (and Anne) for any physical therapy needs.

I went to here to get help with lower back pain that had become bothersome. I had Jason and he was an excellent physical therapist. He continually was making sure how I was doing and trying to figure out what exercises were helping more than others. I have gotten my back and supporting muscles a lot stronger and I am happy to say I am doing a lot better and it all has to do with Excel Therapy and the great staff and therapists.
02:20 04 Mar 20
I am posting on another family member's account.My recent experience with Excel Physical Therapy was wonderful. The staffwere friendly and accommodating. Their team of dedicated physicaltherapists genuinely care about your well-being. Jason's knowledge andexperience has helped me feel so much better. I would personally recommend Excel to others.
13:01 01 Mar 20
This experience has been great thus far! My therapist Ben has been very helpful and knowledgeable. He explains the reasoning behind every exercise. When you have an injury it will be a process and not overnight. He is very patient with me as well. He has helped me a lot. I am thankful to have him helping me. I definitely recommend excel therapy on Krewstown Road. They are very nice and they make sure you are at 100% when your done.
01:14 18 Feb 20
Supportive, friendly therapists providing top notch services.
02:16 20 Jan 20
Very pleasant staff from the receptionist to my therapist Anne and manager Matt who consults with Anne periodically regarding my therapy plan. I highly recommend Excel. I was encouraged to go to Excel after my hip surgery when I wasn't happy with care I received from another post-op company. Very pleased.
00:06 13 Jan 20
The gains I've made, even in the first month, have been amazing!
13:08 23 Dec 19
I want to thank Excel, And my therapist Jason Drott, for a wonderful experience, and helpfulness, in my recovery. I started out 100% in pain, and with Jason's help, I've come a long way, and now able to function doing my daily chores again. Thank you all at Excel for your kindness. I highly recommend Excel to everybody. Thank you again.

I have been to three other physical therapy establishments and they have all made me feel like I was a faceless number. I was one of many in a room where I got no personal attention. At Excel, I am in constant contact with my therapist, who is incredibly patient and knowledgeable about my condition and my comfort level. He mixes up the appointments so I am never really doing the same thing two times in a row and everything I've done has made me feel so much better in two short weeks. I would recommend Excel to anyone!

The Phyical Therapist are very good at what they do. My PT Emily is terrific. The progress with my road to recovery is better than I expected, thanks to her! Looking forward to getting back to my normal activities real soon.
17:08 20 Aug 18
Very friendly, patient staff. My therapist is Benjamin. He understands how annoying it is to be in constant pain and he acts accordingly. You are never made to feel rushed, and he's constantly asking for immediate feed back. Best therapist I've ever been too and I've been to quite a few. I'm very clumsy.

This review is long overdue but the staff at Excel was absolutely fabulous. I attended physical therapy there for about 5 months and Emily was absolutely fantastic; showed tremendous skill, compassion and kindness. Thomas was also great. Emily is a gift to the world of physical therapy and so is Thomas!!!

This is a fabulous facility with some really fantastic people who work there, The staff is well organized, flexible, caring and genuine. The facility and equipment is very clean with a nice atmosphere. I am currently working with Emily and Thomas on occasion. Both are extremely knowledgeable ,encouraging and very helpful with my recovery. I am blessed to have found this facility with such genuine caring therapists. Thank you so much for helping me along this very trying time in my life. I would have never gotten this far without Excel.
