Very satisfied with Kyra, she is wonderful. I am feeling better after every session.
20:59 24 Dec 22
First met the team at Sparta Ivy Rehab Spring of 2021 after being diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my hip. The team helped to get me feeling better so I did not need the immediate total hip replacement surgery. A year and half later I went ahead and had surgery. After 6 weeks I felt my recovery was going to be long lived, I was not feeling good. It was then I received the email from Ivy Rehab. They had stayed in touch from the previous visit. It was then I knew I needed to contact them to help in my recovery. I reached out to them and was scheduled for consultation the same week. I started therapy and it was the best thing I could have done. Within 3 weeks I was feeling so much better. Could not be more thankful for this team of caring and kind professionals. Would not hesitate to return if ever needed or refer family and friends.

All of the staff are fabulous. They are friendly , caring and every appointment is an upbeat experience. They go out of their way to explain what they are doing and why. I always leave feeling so much better at the end of each appointment. I have been involved with other physical therapists in the past. I would highly recommend IvyRehab in Sparta to anyone in need of Physical Therapy. This has been the best and most productive physical therapy experience I have had.

Kyra and EVERYONE at Ivy made my knee injury recovery ENJOYABLE! She explains things so well, is the best motivator, and has the absolute best personality!! They are the best people, and as happy as I am that my knee has healed enough to graduate from PT, I am going to miss seeing everyone. If I ever need PT again I wouldn’t go anywhere else!!
22:46 05 Oct 22
Great kind and caring staff.Taught me to push myself much father then I thought I could. Highly recommend them.

I went misdiagnosed for months before my docs sent to ivy rehab. I got more out of my first appointment with Julie than I had in months with the docs. Within a couple weeks I was in for MRI's that found I had herniated discs in my cervical spine that were pressing on my spinal cord. I don't know where I would be now if it weren't for Julie. She listened and she went above and beyond to get me where I needed to be. I can't say enough good things. All of the ladies are amazing and you leave feeling like family. It's more than physical therapy, they truly care. I would highly recommend them. Julie, Kyra, Kathy and Rayna are the best of the best. Thank you for all you ladies have done and continue to do for me.

As soon as you walk in the door you feel welcomed and continue to feel welcomed each time you have therapy. Kyra, Julie and Raina are all very friendly, helpful and care about you.The best part is they are very knowledgeable and passionate about what they do to help you feel better. I’m seeing Kyra and Julie for pt on my lower back.I’ve seen Peter one time as well and he’s helpful too. I’m going on 2 wks of no shooting nerve pain down my legs to my feet and if you have this sciatica problem you know 2 wks is huge. My hip and knee pain caused from my back problems is also not as often.One day at therapy I had pain going up one side of my neck giving me a instant headache on that side which happens to me randomly for a few yrs now and Julie went above and beyond to massage the stiff spazzing muscles in my neck and gave me relief. I’m also so grateful for the bio freeze massages on my lower back as well as heat. Your all a great team. Thank you so much for all you do and with compassion. Shannon

After having a hip surgery I knew Ivy Rehab would be the place to go! Everyone is so welcoming when walking in and admire you as soon as you walk in the door. The environment is also clean and they do a good job wiping equipment down after use. Kyra does an amazing job educating people about the human body and how the muscles all work and connect. Julie makes sure all of her clients are doing their exercises the most effective way to benefit their pain. Reyna is always a pleasure to schedule appointments and talk to about any questions I may have! Definitely love all the staff at Ivy!
01:20 20 Sep 22
Kyra is great! She is a good listener, was able to diagnose my issues based on my complaints/experiences and has been able to implement a PT regimen to help me. I feel better after I leave. I have listened to other patients of this practice (I am a new patient) and I have heard nothing but positive things. Would highly recommend.

Ivy physical therapy in Sparta has helped to greatly reduce my hip and back pain. I highly recommend this group.
18:18 12 Aug 22
Julie has done great with my son and so has Kyra. We love the environment there. They do great with pediatric patients and adults alike. I’m even considering having my youngest son go here as well. I am so grateful for the people here and everything they have done!

I can't say enough about Ivy Rehab. I started going there about 5 years ago when my fibromyalgia was uncontrollable. I started with the heated pool (about 90 degrees) and it started controlling the symptoms almost immediately.Since then I've had back and knee issues. They have treated me for those issues also with exercises done in typical physical therapy exercises.They are very professional yet friendly. I will continue to return to Ivy Rehab as long as I need them.
22:42 05 May 22
I came here because of a shoulder pain. They have done an extremely well job. My shoulder is doing better, and I graduated. The staff is so compassionate and very personable. I recommend this place highly.I will miss all of them.

I am so impressed with the care that I received at this location. Through my years, I have had to go to physical therapy at several non-Ivy locations and this place is hands-down the most impressive of them all. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and are truly exceptional - beyond compare.

Everyone I've met here has been wonderful. They've been great at helping me with my recovery after ankle surgery. I would 100% recommend Northern Physical Therapy to anyone.

I brought my son here for a knee issue he had been dealing with for a couple years (Osgood-Schlatter disease). He had been to OAM twice, and the advice there after each cursory exam was to “just wait it out” and deal with the pain and physical limitations for a few months or a few years.At our first visit to Northern Physical Therapy, the physical therapist thoroughly assessed his knee, his gait, his flexibility, and the resulting limitations. She also assessed a recent groin pull. She then walked him through a number of stretches and exercises (many of which I had never seen).As a teenager, I expected him to be dismissive of the process because the gains wouldn’t be immediate. Instead he’s really taken to the sessions. He’s been going twice each week for the past 5 weeks, and with him routinely performing his customized stretching and warmup routine at home and at wrestling practice, we’ve seen a ton of improvement. I highly recommend this place.

Honestly, the best Physical Therapy center I have been to (and I've been to a few).My shoulder and knee have been an issue for me for so long that I was at a loss of what to do and quite skeptical of getting any more physical therapy. However, I am so glad I decided to go. I don't feel any more pain in my knee and my shoulder is so much stronger (and less painful) than it ever was.In all the places I've gone to, I've never had a physical therapist that has paid such close attention as Julie and Cathy did. In the past, most would just give me a set of exercises and I would see them in 20 mins or so. Julie and Cathy were there every step of the way and they were always so encouraging. They made sure I was doing my exercises correctly and I was never afraid to ask a question.Going to physical therapy became the best part of my week. I never dreaded to go like I used to at past places.I've learned so much that I'll take with me to help better my shoulder and knee even further. Thank you for everything!
18:05 25 Feb 21
The people here are very good at what they doThis is the seconded time I have been here i was so happy with how they got me back to feeling better and back to work and enjoying life i had no doubts about going back after this surgery

Extremely friendly, knowledgeable staff. COVID-19 safe, with masks and sanitizer coming in and going out.
13:40 02 Feb 21
Everyone was great, from Kelli at the front desk to Julie and Cathy helping me hands on. They were able to do a few telehealth appointments which allowed me flexibility with my schedule, kept me and NPT employees safe in challenging times and the quality of PT was unmatched (whether in person or via telehealth). Thanks for everything! 10/10 recommend.

The therapists at Northern have been a life saver for me. They ease arthritis pain and help with hip and back pain.
14:05 17 Apr 19
I give Northern Physical Therapy five stars because they are so deserving of this accolade. I was contemplating about where I wanted to have my therapy done before I decided to contact Northern Physical Therapy. The doctor had given me a list of possible clinics. A good friend of mine mentioned Northern Physical Therapy because this is where his mother had her therapy sessions and during that time, she had nothing but positive things to say about Northern Physical Therapy in Sparta, Michigan. She said the girls were so nice and made her feel comfortable having her therapy done there. I was sold and decided to give them call and make an appointment. It has been a blessing in disguise to have made contact with them. The receptionist, Stacy was kind and very professional and it was a pleasure speaking with her. I have had about six sessions and I have been 100% satisfied with my progress and the care and attention that has been given to me by the therapists. They have done a great job of working with me. I would definitely recommend Northern Physical Therapy to other people. They are truly the best. I have enjoyed working with Julie and Cathy. They know exactly what they are doing when they are working with you. I have confidence that they will help me resolve the problem that I have with my right shoulder. I value their expertise.
