What we treat

Below you’ll find the 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.

I went to the Rutherford facility to rehab after bilateral knee surgery. I was there for 4 months and totally thrilled with the care I received there from my main therapist Bridget as well as Therapist Heather. All 3 assistants, Amaya, Juliana, and Wilson were always attentive and personable. I highly reccomend this facility

I highly recommend Excel, especially the PT I worked with Sarah Hale. Sarah is highly knowledgeable and experienced, extremely aware of your recovery needs and understands how to manage your progression properly, and pays special attention to detail. Not to mention she is also a great person to work with & speak to, as she is highly personable.I had a car accident in the winter and 3 herniated discs as a result. Sarah and her staff helped me to get my pain down and back to a normal life. Again, I highly recommend.

Excel - especially Heather Graham! - did a fabulous job of rehabbing me after a bad fall, then we worked on the cause of the fall (arthritic knee) to make it as strong as possible. The staff is helpful, supportive, and friendly. Equipment is disinfected after each person uses it, facilities are very clean, and masks are mandatory.

I would highly recommend this therapy place to my friends and family. It was very clean and organized. Yes, a mask was worn and temp taken prior to entering therapy room but a difference was each item that was used was immediately cleaned and put away after use not at the end of session. Staff was friendly and very knowledgeable. Rosa, at front desk was the best and the assistants in the therapy room were ever so helpful. I worked with Kelly who was so delightful and really knew her stuff. She explained everything she was going to do before doing it. I find this step to be very important. I have completed my therapy for now and if I should need more, I will not hesitate to return here.

I would like to say Excel Physical therapy in Rutherford New Jersey is the best. I entered in fear of needing a hip replacement and I was introduced to my PT Heather who encouraged me and took time in helping me strengthen the muscles around the hip area and helped me with stretching and gaing my confidence to getting back to normal. The entire staff is great knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you Excel. Special thanks to excel assistant Tatiana.

I had my knee replacement surgery in February and my Doctor, “Doctor Grau” told me to go to Excel unfortunately I wasn’t able to go there, I went somewhere else, after 4 months I was still having problems so my Doctor told me again to go to Excel it was the best decision I have made so far to listen to him, my therapist Heather is the best she listen to my needs and is super present and attentive to your needs, I’m not rush to finish my exercise when I’m done I feel like I’ve accomplish something, I’m not where I want to be but I’m getting there I’m doing so much better than when I started.

Excel I. Rutherford is awesome. My therapist, Heather, is tremendous. She is super attentive, professional, adept at her therapy and truly a gift to me. Heather evaluated me and has been working tirelessly to help me improve. Everyone in that center looks to make the experience beneficial. With Covid, the precautions and cleaning are above and beyond. I can feel safe while physically feeling better.I recommend Excel to anyone needing physical therapy.Bravo Excel and thanks

I unfortunately am a PT expert with my first visit to a PT in 1991, and many other visits to many other PT's since. 😞The company, the equipment are all secondary in your choice of where to go for your PT, the most important component is the PT. In this case, I have found the best and brightest in Anna Palkin. I cannot speak of anyone else, but I will not see another PT as long as Anna is actively practicing. Her ability to analyze the injury, develop a plan of physical therapy and implement said plan is beyond that of 97% of all others. I have, with her help and guidance overcome a devastating back issue, bilateral knee replacement and now complications from the knee replacements.If Anna Palkin ever moves on, I will follow her, not the company. Ask for her to better your health for a better life.

Great experience! The staff and therapist very well organized. Started with a lot of pain and on the last day of therapy walked away pain free. Gave me exercises to implement, that I can use when I’m not in the facility.

I highly recommend this location. The staff are friendly, helpful and competent. Special thanks goes to Kevin whose exercise plan had me feeling better within several visits and back to normal in a relatively short period of time.
