IvyRehab Southport has been excellent in all respects in helping me recover from a complicated injury and knee surgery. The Therapists themselves. Gabby and John, are professional, and have deep expertise I could always count on. They were very kind and patient with my challenges of learning to walk again. Also, they were fun and personable which made for an enhanced experience. I plan on continuing my recovery at IvyRehab with a secondary referral from my Primary Care physician to strengthen my bones and build muscle mass lost in this process. I am a 20 year Yoga teacher so my standards for these fellow professionals was quite high. The support staff was wonderful too. Highly recommended.
I came to Ivy Rehab in Southport after a friend's recommendation following my ACL tear. Since I would need extensive physical therapy post-surgery, I was planning to visit a few clinics to find the best fit. However, after meeting Gabi, one of the therapists, I knew my search was over. The atmosphere and the staff at Ivy Rehab have been fantastic, and I've felt comfortable and confident in my recovery throughout the past three weeks of almost daily visits.
John and the team at Ivy Rehab Southport are amazing!!!! Highly recommend them.
Ivy Rehab helped me heal on so many levels. Most importantly, I was given the confidence to want to continue to heal. John is an exceptional physical therapist. He is well versed in physiology, and makes you feel comfortable, is patient, thorough, and educates you during your session. John gives excellent individualized attention to his clients, and motivates them with the belief you have it in your power to heal. Choice staff as well, all focused on the comfort and needs of the client. As a stage 4 breast cancer survivor, physical therapy was essential. I lost my ability to walk in January. I’m now up to 10 minutes on the exercise bike. Ivy Rehab helped me achieve this!!!
Having John as my Physical Therapist at Ivy Rehab has been a great experience. John went above and beyond to provide the best therapy to help me heal. His individual attention, time, exercises, caring,and different modalities has made all the difference. Jessica has been so helpful supporting my appointments and questions. I am so impressed with my overall experience and highly recommend John and Ivy Rehab.
Honestly, I had accepted the pain and restricted movement in my right shoulder over the months, until finally I could not lift my arm above my head. I am an artist, working to sell gifts based on the drawings I make. My easel is upright and the drawings take about 20 hours to complete. I was in constant pain while drawing, so I decided to get help for my 'frozen shoulder.'I was nervous to start physical therapy, worried that I was going to injure myself further. But Dr. John Carr was reassuring and knowledgable. He shared that one of the reasons he became a physical therapist was the excellent treatment he received as a young competitive swimmer for - guess what - a shoulder injury!I highly recommend working with Dr. Carr at Ivy Rehab. He designed exercises that were just enough of a stretch to help me loosen my shoulder. With patience, and doing my home exercises, I've regained a comfort and a freedom of movement I had nearly given up on. Thank you, Dr. Carr (and to Jess for great office support!)(Photo is of Dr. John Carr and me with my most recent drawing 'Independence Bouquet.')
John and team are excellent! He helped me recover from an injury. He is caring and committed to results and progress. He’s a great communicator. I recommend him without hesitation.
Joe and the team at Ivy Rehab Southport are great, they really helped me. Highly recommend them.
Excellent in every way. Joe is trained in all aspects of rehabilitation. I went to Joe with pain in my Achilles. He quickly diagnosed that the pain was the result of a previous calf injury. His services, including needling, have been extraordinary in healing my injury and building lower body strength in my glutes, hips and calves. Highly recommend Joe for any PT needs.
I was very pleased with their professionalism, knowledge in therapy, and backup information to help you along👍👍👍
Joe is fantastic; went in for PT on rotator cuff and happy to report I am good as new. Overall experience was top-notch and Joe is extremely knowledgeable and homed in on the problem area instantly, providing easy instruction on getting my arm to the right place. Highly recommend
Joe and Jenna are wonderful and so caring.I’ve been a patient here for about two weeks now the improvement is fantastic.The plan of care is working so well that I look forward my next appointment.Thank you!
Joe is fantastic! He is extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to understand and adjust treatment plans specifically to your needs. He was consistently encouraging throughout my course of treatment and I’ve noticed an increase in strength and endurance! I can’t thank him enough for all the hard work he put in.
After two hip surgeries (a failed reconstruction followed by artificial hip replacement) and four Physical Therapy facilities and two in-home programs in New York City and Connecticut, the therapists at Ivy Rehab were far and away the best on multiple parameters: they worked with me for a full hour (vs. the usual 30 minutes), they followed a progressive protocol prescribed by my surgeon of Range of Motion only for several weeks until the bone and rod had fused and only then strength building exercises (I suspect that vigorous challengingk with weight of a not-healed reconstruction contributed to the failure of that procedure), and Joe and John were by far the most knowledgeable P.T .practitioners I encountered. They were able to communicate the reasons for every exercise, and the breadth and number of exercises was impressive (and appropriately exhausting).I recommend them wholeheartedly.William J. Chambers, M.D.
Exceptional PT. Best experience ever. Joe is incredibly knowledgeable and patient.
I started with Joe at Ivy’s Westport location on their opening day. Joe is comes across very personable, knowledgeable guy with a genuine interest in helping people rehabilitate and a pleasure to be around. The facility is a spacious open concept with state of the art equipment and tons of natural light. It doesn’t hurt that there is ample parking either! Very happy with the overall experience.Matt
Joe treated my shoulder. He patiently answered all my questions and was very gentle and kind. Thanks to him I’m back to swimming with my grandkids :)
Joe helped me get my life back after a devastating knee injury. He worked around my busy work schedule, kept in constant communication, and made sure I got back to normal as quickly as possible. Joe brings great energy and in-depth knowledge and I highly recommend paying a visit if you need help.
Had multi component knee surgery and Joe helped me actually get me to a point where I'm doing MORE after my surgery than I was doing BEFORE I injured it. He's got a great methodical approach to treatment plan. He knows how to explain it at whichever level you feel comfortable with (less scientific vs. more scientific), and is always approachable. Strong level of creativity in how he tailors your plan and I can say for sure that I'm stronger now than I was before my injury. Gave me something to look forward to during my week, never dreaded it, and he knew when I was struggling without benefit and would make the decision to pull it back (as well as some days where we would push it harder!). So thankful and can confidently say that he got me back on my feet (literally). Highly recommend working with him and at his clinic!
I went to Joe Rivieccio to receive treatment for a partially torn labrum as well as some back and neck pain as a result of a motor vehicle accident. Joe is truly a credit to his profession. He put together some great exercise plans that changed often and progressively got more challenging to strengthen my injuries to the point where I felt as though I do not need surgery. Keep up the great work!
Joe is such a compassionate and caring therapist. Him and his team are very professional and helped me recover quickly! Plus this location is so clean and welcoming, I will definitely be coming back in the future!
Joe treated my knee recently. He is extremely empathetic and caring. Knew exactly what I needed to get back to running!
This office is beautiful! Great experience overall! Joe is an exceptional therapist and will get you feeling better ASAP!
The new Southport facility is bright and beautiful, and working with Joe is terrific. He and the Ivy team are very responsive, caring and professional.
Joe is an amazing therapist. Kind and compassionate. Listens well. Facility is beautiful.
