Springfield Excel is an outstanding facility. The staff is amazing. I started therapy following a broken leg requiring 3 months non weight bearing. I went from that to crutches and cane and now 6 months past injury am at about 80%. The entire staff is wonderful. My therapist Amanda is the best!!!!! She’s made me whole. She’s been so encouraging and technically so talented.
Jason took excellent care of me, addressed my concerns, created a care plan specific to my injury, and ensured that I understood the different stages of my healing. I would recommend him without question!
Simply said THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE I'D GO FOR THERAPY. Extremely nice, friendly, professional people who genuinely are here to help you fell better. Come here for your better health.
If you're looking for Physical Therapy that is professional and expertly done, look no further than Advanced Rehab Solutions.Jason came highly recommended by my doctor after breaking my wrist. I could't be happier with the treatment I received there. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to be around. Jason was thorough and meticulous during my sessions. I highly recommend Advanced Rehab Solutions.
I have see Jason a number of times over the years. The care has been excellent. At one time hand surgery was recommended, I had Jason examine my hand. He made a few “tweaks” in the brace I was wearing and no surgery! He has since fixed two other issues with therapy- avoided surgery again!I can not praise him highly enough
I highly recommend the caring, supportive ARS team of all star physical therapists. My doctor referred me to Jason for physical therapy for my broken/dislocated pinky; Jason had helped my doctor's mother with hand rehabilitation and is my doctor's go-to hand therapist. Jason and the rest of the team at ARS were extremely easy to work with and helped me get strength and range of motion back in my pinky. Jason communicated with my doctor any emerging concerns and leveled with me about the work that needed to get done both in physical therapy and with the home exercises he gave me. The front office seamlessly handled all insurance claims and did a fantastic job of finding appointments that worked with my schedule. Jason's colleagues exhibited similar care and expertise with their patients. In addition, the whole office took care in the time of COVID very seriously. And, the location is super convenient with ample parking. I hope not to need physical therapy again but if I do I have no doubt I will choose ARS for myself and my loved ones.
If you need physical therapy, I would strongly encourage you to do it at ARS. They are the best at what they do: competent and caring therapists who will work hard to help you reach your recovery goals so you can move on with your life. I highly recommend giving them a call.
Jason Furia is an outstanding occupational therapist and hand specialist! I had carpal tunnel release surgery a couple of months ago and feel so fortunate to have had Jason as my therapist through my recovery. He's incredibly knowledgeable, skilled and passionate about his work. I've been very pleased with the personalized care and how quickly I recovered. The office is run professionally, appointments start on time, and all of the therapists and staff are warm, friendly and have nice rapport with the patients. I expected OT to feel like a chore but actually enjoyed my time at ARS and am confident that I received the best care. I highly recommend ARS and especially Jason.
I highly recommend ARS to anyone looking for a caring and professional business to do rehab during these high stress times. The staff is highly trained and quickly design your program based on your personnel needs. They disinfect all equipment after each use and everyone wears a mask. Temperatures of all clients are checked upon entering the facility. This is the place to go for your rehab needs.
Recently I had surgery on my hand and had to go for therapy. I was sent to ARS Hand & Physical Therapy. I must say that was the Best thing that could have happened. Everyone there was so nice. Jason is the Best I have ever had as a therapist. He along with Stacy and Ronnie and all his staff makes you feel so comfortable and is well experience in their jobs.My hand was so much better when my treatments were over.If ever I need to go for therapy again ARS Therapy will be the place for me. GREAT SERVICE.
I highly recommend ARS. I had surgery on my wrist and wasn’t healing as well as hoped without physical therapy. My doctor recommended Jason and after a few weeks of seeing Jason and his assistant Ron, my wrist is back to normal, as if the surgery never happened. The staff is very welcoming and pleasant and also extremely knowledgeable. They’re gentle yet effective, helping you to push yourself to the maximum you can do without exceeding your limit. I could not recommend them enough!
What an AMAZING staff. They were extremely helpful on my journey to feeling better. They were pleasant and the environment was inviting to all that entered the facility. While we are yet in the pandemic, they have taken all precautions to sanitize. You would appreciate the cleanliness. They are always on time with providing service to their clients. The front desk support is extremely kind and friendly. Thanks for helping me get better.
I was recommended to ARS hand and physical therapy after I had knee surgery. I was very grateful to have Matt as my physical therapist he is excellent! He is extremely professional with great conversation. Thank you Matt for keeping me moving, getting me stronger and never allowing me to give up on myself. All of the staff at ARS are also excellent. I highly recommend this facility to anyone in need of Physical therapy.Gladys Muller 😊
I highly recommend ARS! I have been to bigger PT chains where you don’t get the attention needed. I broke my wrist and had surgery in May during the pandemic. Jason Furia was highly recommended by my surgeon so I went to ARS and I am so fortunate that I did. I have regained almost all of my range of motion and I attribute my progress to Jason’s knowledge and skill. He gives you his full attention and works with each patient "where they are". In addition to being highly competent, Jason sets the tone for his staff and all are extremely friendly, encouraging and caring. The atmosphere is relaxed and you feel like you are part of the family. Also, ARS is committed to being very careful during the pandemic. I was nervous about exposure to the virus but everything is cleaned after use, there are Plexiglas dividers, an air filter and they limit the number of people in the room at a time. (ARS is on the first floor) I felt very safe! Thank you, Jason, and all the staff at ARS!
I recently had hand surgery in May during this pandemic. My hand was really weak and I was really scared that I would not have the same use of my hand. I Googled hand therapists in NJ, and Jason was highly rated. He made me feel comfortable with their safety measures and hopeful that he could help me. 8 weeks later, I had my last session. I feel great about my progress and am excited to report, I feel almost 100%. The staff there was really amazing and I will miss you all.
Jason is the absolute best, he’s so caring and funny such a character, he helped mend my fractured elbow back to health! One day I’m gonna get a tattoo of his face on my elbow. His staff is very kind and helpful, especially their secretary Stacy she’s the sweetest girl! Really helped me a lot with booking my appointments!
After years of playing tennis and injuring my arm, I was referred to ARS Hand and Physical Therapy with the hope that I could recover in time for paddle season. Not only was the team at ARS very helpful but they were so professional. I received 1:1 attention that was tailored to my specific lifestyle, needs and injury. The entire staff is so knowledgable and I would highly recommend them!
The entire staff of ARS are extremely professional and friendly. They are caring and knowledgeable. I had been to ARS and was under Jason's care after Carpal Tunnel surgery two years ago. When I first went there my hand was weak and atrophied but Jason's exercise regiment helped my hand fully recover and built the strength back. This past year I chose to return to ARS as I was confident they could help me with my neck issues. I had Amanda and Matt treat my neck. They were very skilled in locating the tender spots that required massage, manipulating, stretching, and rotating of my neck to get back my range of motion. Gabby and Ron always got me prepared with the hot pack and follow up exercises. Stacy was wonderful in scheduling my appointments and keeping record of my payments and insurance filing. I highly recommend this group for therapy.
Great staff especially Amanda an JasonKnee Rehab after TKR! Staff is caring, empathetic and concerned for you gaining full range of motion.
I was extremely skeptical and unhappy when I found out I’d have to schedule weeks of physical therapy for post op wrist surgery. Even with my reluctance and poor attitude, I was won over by the professionalism and understanding of the entire ARS Team. From scheduling to sessions, the members of this staff demonstrate compassion, understanding and commitment to their work.The work space is arranged in such a mindful and purposeful manner. With subtlety, it offers both privacy and a sense of community. There atmosphere provides an undeniable sense of both understanding and support-every step of the way.Jason, who was my primary therapist, sets the tone for a calming, friendly therapeutic environment. He is endlessly patient and has an extremely outstanding staff. I’ve had the opportunity to work with the other ARS therapists who carried out treatment plans seamlessly, without missing a beat.After having the surgery for multiple fractures in my wrist along with surgery to address carpal tunnel, I am amazingly thrilled to report that I am back to having fully functional movement. Following the PTs recommendations for exercises IS A MUST. The ARS team knows what they are doing.
I am so lucky that the hand specialist recommended ARS for my very painful tennis elbow. Jason is very knowledgeable and friendly. He treats every patient as family and gives them the individual attention they deserve. Thanks to the therapy he provided and the home exercises he recommended I can use my right arm again. I highly recommend ARS for your physical therapy needs. This therapist owned private practice is very welcoming, fun and convenient.
Employees are very knowledgeable and create a fun environment that makes you want to be there.
I've been to numerous PT practices and can say my ARS experience was the best of all. This is not a PT factory. The staff and caseload are relatively small allowing for a one on one treatment each session. I never felt rushed or neglected because another patient needed to be seen. Unfortunately, too many PT practices made me feel that way.The atmosphere while professional tends to lean toward informality leading to genuinely interesting discussions among staff and patients. I'd characterize the whole experience as friendly and comfortable. More importantly as a consumer of healthcare, one wants to know how effective is the treatment received. I didn't rate it as five stars for some random reason. ARS staff really know what they're doing. I worked primarily with Matt as the PT and Ron and Gabbie, hope I spelled the names correctly, as assistants. When I started I could hardly move my arm at all due to shoulder pain. Upon discharge I had almost the same amount of free movement in that shoulder as in my healthy shoulder. In the course of getting to that point, Matt was always aware of my comfort and worked to keep any discomfort to a minimum. While working with me, Matt proved to be very well informed about his professional field but also about Nature and the world in general. He's a very interesting guy and a joy with which to work. He's a great motivator while being realistic in explaining his expectations as to what improvement to expect.Though I never worked with Amanda, my observation of her working with other patients leads me to believe she's competent and skilled. She's certainly good at putting patients at ease while working with them. I didn't have any therapy with Jason but he was generous of his time answering a question about hand injuries for me. He has an amazing rapport with his patients. I'd certainly go to him if I had need of his expertise.Ron and Gabbie always observed me when working independently on any piece of equipment. They always had any equipment I needed ready for me. Both are very friendly, encouraging, and attentive. Each displayed confidence and competence when explaining an exercise or piece of equipment. They keep the place running smoothly and efficiently.I'd add that I found scheduling appointments very easy and convenient. The support staff at the front desk are just as competent as the PT and assistants in the therapy area.If I hurt myself again, which I certainly will, ARS is where I'll go for PT. There won't be a millisecond of thought about that decision.
I recently had issues with my right shoulder and lower back. My friend recommended ARS Hand & Physical Therapy in Springfield. I am so happy I follower her advice. My therapist Matt has been fabulous in resolving these issues in a most professional yet friendly manner. I am happy to resume all my activities now pain free. The entire staff is knowledgeable and makes you feel comfortable. I would highly recommend this therapy facility and will not hesitate to go back if I have any further therapy issues in the future!
Rarely do you meet a health practitioner who combines great expertise with an equal amount of true patient caring. Matthew is that person. He not only dramatically reduced the pain I was experiencing, but did so in the most caring way. I couldn't recommend him more strongly to others in need of pain management. A five star individual.
Amanda is the greatest physical therapist. She is professional compassionate and knowledgeable.
Great physical therapy service. Best therapists, supporting staff and office I have ever been at. Have had experience with both Jason and Amanda and they have always been very caring and professional. Would highly recommend ARS.
What a great staff. Knowledgeable, kind, courteous and They make you feel like family. Amanda and Jason are awesome.
I have been a patient at ARS for a number of years for a number of different issues. They are the BEST!I have worked with Jason Furia for some arm and finger issues I have had, and also with Amanda McGrath for knee and shoulder pain.Every treatment has been successful and has worked out the way I was told they would.I can truthfully say that this group of people are individually and as a unit, professional, caring, courteous and helpful.I recommend them with no reservations at all. If you need physical therapy, here is where you need to go.
I highly recommend ARS Hand and Physical Therapy to anyone recovering from an injury or surgery. Jason and the entire staff are professional, skilled and steadily encourage you to progress based on your individual needs and limitations. Everyone on staff is so interesting, funny and a pleasure to speak with! I actually look forward to seeing them 3 days a week. 😊
I recently completed six weeks of therapy at ARS to address issues related to a herniated disc. The staff at ARS ( specifically Matt D.) provided outstanding support and assistance every step of the way. I received personalized attention and was able to resume my "normal" activities in less time than I expected. I would recommend ARS without any hesitation or reservation.
When you have a serious injury that makes your life take a left turn it can be very daunting in a myriad of ways. Last spring I sustained a serious injury which put me out athletic competition, limited my ability to work, in addition to seriously impacting my life. When I found Jason and his team at ARS, my life was changed for the better. The team at ARS works to provide first class recovery in a first class way, they will adopt you as one of their own and do everything they can to help you reach your maximum potential. After working extensively with Jason and his team this last summer, they helped me regain the strength and confidence to once again compete athletically and approach everything with muscle (and a proper working elbow).
I’ve spent the last 4 months as a patient at ARS and I’m very pleased with my progress. The staff is all friendly and knowledgeable; I’d recommend ARS over any bigger place due to the high quality of care and the personalities of the people working there!
Totally professional group very accommodating ...caring environment.
Jason, Amanda, and the rest of the ARS team are nothing short of spectacular. Clinical skills aside (which are so strong that I happily traveled across the Hudson River from NYC to see them), the staff is so warm and welcoming that you really feel like part of the ARS family. While I'm never happy to hear that a friend or family member is landing in physical therapy, I take great pride in confidently recommending Advanced Rehab Solutions to anyone and everyone who's in need of some fixing up!
If you are a patient at ARS & don’t give them 5- stars...Dr. Niver sent me here and it was an AMAZING experience.Stacey, the front desk- beyond sweet , friendly and willing to work with you.Amanda & Matt - made my time that much more fun and entertaining . Thank you guys for the laughs.Ron & Dena - my buddies . They are the aids but are so attentive to YOU that they learn ABOUT you .And my man of the hour, JASON. This man goes above and beyond helping his patients . He made me all kinds of funky splints for my finger injury and provided me with his full attention when he was working with me. He always made sure to address any issues or concerns I was having and stayed in proper and effective communication with myself and my doctor. JASON, I thank you and will forever be in debt for you for helping me recover so much of my range of motion. I genuinely THANK YOU!To the rest of the ARS staff, thank you for everything !Refer them! Go to them! You won’t regret it.
I shattered my elbow in January 2019, needed surgery to correct, and my surgeon immediately recommended ARS. At the time I couldn’t take care of myself, shower, get dressed, etc., let alone care for my infant son or my 2 other kids.My first visit was immediately after the cast was removed, and I was in a huge amount of pain. Jason was extremely patient and gentle with me. After assessing the situation, he immobilized my wrist which alleviated much of the pain. He also began me exercising my fingers, which I was barely able to move after the surgery. We later started working on elbow, wrist movements and strengthening.It was a long arduous journey which took several months. All throughout the process, Jason was attentive and caring. He gave me exercises to do at home, and would constantly monitor them to see how I progressed, and would adjust as needed. He has many years of experience, and a huge amount of expertise with hands. He knew when to push me, and when to reign me in to get to my maximum potential. With his help, I was able to get back most of my range of motion (which is extremely unusual for this type of injury).The most important thing I would say is that everyone at ARS made me feel welcome and cared for during a very dark time in my life. I actually looked forward to my appointments and seeing everyone there, even though it was 2 hours of hard work and some discomfort. They are some of the most interesting people I have met (except during football season), with an uncanny knack for knowing when I needed some uplifting words, or humor to keep me positive. For me they are unusual in that they treated the “whole patient”, knowing that a positive outlook and spirit aids in healing and gets better overall results.I know that I am extremely lucky to have such extraordinary results, and that is a direct result of having such an extraordinary physical therapist.
I have been to Jason for my wrist after a break and surgery and Amanda for my shoulder after a gym mishap. The care I received was excellent in both cases. Everyone who works there is committed to providing the best care-from making appointments, to dealing with insurance, to helping with exercises.
Jason and his team are amazing. I started therapy with Jason 4 weeks after fracturing my thumb and had no range of motion. After working with Jason for 2-3 weeks, he helped restore all of my range of motion. He is incredibly skilled and knowledgeable. He is also very thoughtful and willing to design custom braces to help with your injury. My healing process wouldn’t have gone so quickly and smoothly without him or his team.
Pain is a wicked enemy...post op or post accident...the heroes of battling that pain are the therapists at ARS Hand and Physical Therapy. Jason, Amanda, and the rest of the staff are not only skillful and knowledgeable clinicians, but are empathetic, kind, and friendly as well. Having been to other physical therapy centers over the years, ARS far exceeds any other. The individual help, attention to patient needs, expertise in how to best heal injuries, and straight up warmth make this a state of the art facility which brings one back to health and mobility with its professional and very talented therapists.
I highly recommend ARS to anybody who needs physical therapy. I've been a patient with ARS for over three years now.I'm a frequent gym attendee and get injuries here and there. Each time I had issues on my ankle, hips, and list goes on, they did a great job addressing the issues. In addition to doctor's orders, they listen and accommodate your needs. They are very professional and compassionate.Before finding ARS, I felt like I was at a factory when I went to PT; a therapist had a handful patients at the same time and giving orders to patients. I didn't feel like I was getting attention from a therapist.At ARS, your therapist works with you and give their attention to the patients. Somebody is always watching you although you might not realize and comes to help you out when you work on your routine.If you need PT, ARS is it.
The staff and Physical Therapists at ARS are all extremely professional and very helpful. Dr. Amanda has always been there to help me with my aches and pains. I feel great after every session. I highly recommend ARS!!
I have been going to ARS intermittently over the course of a few years for various injuries and surgeries (elbow, shoulder, ulnar nerve, and TKR) I have worked with Amanda, DPT, Matt, DPT and Jason, OTR, CHT. They are all professional, personable and courteous. They are highly competent and have alleviated my symptoms and or pain. Dena and Ron are very helpful and knowledgeable assistants. The office assistants are also professional and courteous. I am always under constant supervision, and the watchful eye of my therapist who currently is Matt. I highly recommend ARS.
ARS Physical Therapy with Jason Furia CHT in Springfield Township, NJ has been a wonderful healing experience for me.From the first phone call looking for A Certified Hand Physical Therapist, to getting a custom splint made, advancing well doing the assigned exercises and using the equipment to strengthen my complicated wrist fracture with surgery all the team has been welcoming, helpful, informative and professional.I could not imagine going anywhere else for my treatment!
The therapists here are very helpful and personable. I highly recommend coming here,
After surgery for two finger fractures I began coming to ARS and I would highly recommend it to anyone needing occupational/physical therapy. I received great care and encouragement so I could make a full recovery. All the staff is extremely friendly and helpful making an overall great atmosphere.
I am so happy to tell anyone who needs an attentive caring PT center to go to. I have had double knee replacements two and a half months ago and when my two weeks of home PT was up I asked my therapist if she knew a great place to go to to continue my therapy where they actually gave you attention and watched you. I have gone prior to big box PT centers where they give you a sheet with exercises and there is no one to watch or correct you.My very high expectations were met atARS! Friendly, accomodating and professional!!! The owner is on site and is part of a great team. The therapist are all excellent!! (Of course I love Amanda as she treated me!)The office and aids are all friendly and professional.I have the most respect for this team. Never rush, good listeners and great results!!!THANK YOU!!!! ARS!!! You are all great!
I have been coming here for a a while (a few months before my surgery and now after) and everyone is great here. I work directly with Jason, who has helped me immensely and Dena, Ron, Amanda, Matt, Stacey everyone who works here is just such a positive energy. I would highly recommend if you’re looking to enjoy your physical therapy experience!
I was highly recommended ARS from a Orthopedic surgeon when I was diagnosed with mallet finger and swan neck deformity.The facility has outstanding cleanliness, staff is experienced, friendly, down to earth and Jason is outstanding. He spent over an hour perfecting a cast for my finger to heal correctly.I would recommended this facility to all myclosest friends and family members.
