It is a great place to come for physical therapy. They are helpful in explaining the exercises and how to do them.
They were great. I feel like I limped in and walked out. They managed to treat what was wrong with me, and were able to address the other contributing factors as well.
Stephanie was great. Gentle responsive to discomfort levels. On time.
I’m extremely thankful for Ivy Rehab in Springfield for helping me be able to function again without pain. Melissa is such an amazing physical therapist who constantly supported me through everything. She was super personable and made my time there a great experience. Thank you for everything!Jocelyn
Everyone here is great! I came here after my ankle surgery and was very satisfied with my progress. The staff is always friendly, professional, and knowledgeable!
Big thanks to Melissa and Stefanie for getting me running again! Professional, insightful, supportive, and super fun to work with. I'm grateful for their help.
It's a great place to help you get back to doing the things you want to do in life.The staff is great and friendly making the experience of rehab wonderful .If you need help getting to move like you want to this is the place in Springfield to go.
I have been going to Ivy Rehab Physical Therapy since September 2023. Melissa Tighe is an awesome therapist and has helped me through my pain with multiple therapies of stretching and core strengthening exercises. This was my second time I have needed her help, 2 separate injuries, and I would definitely return to her services if needed. Melissa changed up the routine each week to keep it interesting and progress my rehab. Thank you so much for your help and care. I will miss seeing you each week!!
Wonderful staff! Very knowledgeable and friendly!
Ivy Rehab Therapy was such a great experience for me. My Therapist Melissa Tighe is truly the best. The therapy she gave me for my foot problem has helped me tremendously. She took her time, showed me what I needed to do to help relieve me of the pain and discomfort I was having. These exercises really helped me with my healing. On my last day of therapy she sent me home with an exercise program to continue doing so that my initial problem will not resurface. The entire staff and atmosphere was also a great experience. I will miss going to Ivy Rehab, but I wish them the very best and thanks for your absolute care.Frances Johnson
Very helpful office staff. Therapist Melissa is very kind and keeps the individual patient in mind for therapy. Works hard to get you back to 100%
Sustained a neck & shoulder injury in June 2023 that rendered my dominant arm/hand somewhat useless and in constant discomfort. I began physical therapy treatment with Melissa and the Ivy Rehab-Springfield team later that month and continued biweekly treatments for the next few months.I cannot speak more highly of Melissa and each of the Springfield location employees with whom I had the pleasure of interacting. Professional, understanding, helpful and skilled. Fast forward to early this fall and my injury has now fully recovered thanks to the treatment received and home exercises prescribed. The discomfort and weakness are now a distant memory and it. If you are seeking compassionate, competent and high-trained PT professionals for a new or lingering ailment, look no further.
Highly recommend Ivy Rehab- Springfield for physical therapy! I was sent to PT for knee pain, and mainly saw Melissa for my treatment. Melissa is a wonderful, knowledgeable, and kind clinician, who helped me understand and treat my knee pain. I was able to take home knowledge to help me continue getting better at home. Front desk (Yaminah!) was very helpful, made dealing with my referral and insurance easy on my end, and made each visit pleasant and fun. 10/10 would come back here for future physical therapy.
Melissa is an awesome caring physical therapist I recommend Ivy to anyone in need of physical therapy.
My trainer Melissa was terrific. Very supportive, personable and knowledgeable. The facility was clean and well laid out. My appointments were actually fun and well worth the time and effort.
I went to Ivy Rehab after knee surgery following a dirt bike accident. Melissa did an amazing job helping me on my road to recovery and I cannot thank her enough. I have a very physically demanding job and with the help I received at Ivy Rehab I was able to make a full recovery, return to work, and more importantly have my regular life back! She even helped set me up with a good orthopedic surgeon near by and they worked closely together during my extended recovery time. The level of care I received start to finish was fantastic, both in a professional sense and a sense that they cared personally about my success. Bonus points should be awarded to the entire team at Ivy Rehab as they took turns entertaining my 4 year old son when I had to bring him along one afternoon. Melissa, Russ and the receptionist all took turns playing soccer with him so I could keep my appointment. Highly recommend this place
This place is the best! I am someone who is typically nervous about all things medical. Had some nerve pain for a few months that wouldn't go away even though I am in my 20's. I reached out to Melissa at Ivy Rehab and she was amazing! Everyone there was super welcoming and reassuring. I looked forward to going twice a week and in two sessions I saw results. It was great that they could accommodate my work schedule and they were great with navigating insurance. Highly recommend!
Melissa is fantastic,very thorough, caring ,knowing & at the top of her profession. When my doctor said I needed physical therapy I knew wher and who to go to. Melissa helped me with another problem in the past that is completely gone .I have recommended her to many people & will continue doing so.
I worked with Melissa after a back surgery and she was wonderful. She got me back to normal within about 8 weeks and was kind and knowledgeable. Everyone in the clinic is awesome - special shout to Dee Dee too! Highly recommend!
Having a positive past experience with another Excel Physical Therapy (now known as Ivy Rehab) location, I decided to give this location a try and I'm really glad I did.Back in the summer of 2020, I started experiencing sciatica caused by an old snowboarding injury. I didn't address it and ultimately threw out my back in early 2021. For a year, I only saw a chiropractor and while it allowed me to be more comfortable, I still experienced daily sciatica pain. After I started experiencing weakness in my legs, I saw an orthopedic surgeon who suggested PT.Melissa at Ivy Rehab is an amazing physical therapist. As other reviews mentioned, she is knowledgeable, kind, and accommodating. She helped me understand the science behind the treatment and exercises. She pushed me hard enough but also would ease up on days when I was in pain.The facility is really nice too. The space is nice and open, bright, and clean. There were usually 1 or 2 other patients there and I never felt cramped.It has been over 7 months since my treatment ended and I'm thrilled to say that I have only experience sciatica a handful of times since. Melissa gave me important parts of my life back... playing with my daughter, gardening and DIY projects around the house, and physical activities like hiking and bicycling. And I've finally been able to snowboard again for the first time in 3 years. All completely pain free! Thank you Melissa!
I recently completed a physical therapy program at Ivy Rehab in Springfield, PA, with therapist and clinic director Melissa Tighe.Melissa did a great job on my neck, which had been bothering me for several months. I no longer suffer from pain or spasms and I have an increased range of motion.She always made sure I performed my exercises correctly, and she provided me with detailed printed instructions for exercises to do at home.Her clinic is clean and organized, and the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming.I would definitely recommend Ivy Rehab and specifically Melissa Tighe for anyone in need of physical therapy. Melissa is not only highly trained and knowledgeable, but very personable and caring. She's enjoyable to be around.
I went to Excel after years of dealing with a shoulder & neck pain following a shoulder dislocation. I had been through a few rounds of PT in the past at different clinics, without much success. This time was very different! Melissa Tighe was extremely knowledgeable & thorough and helped to diagnose and treat the issue in a few months. I highly recommend her and her team!
Very knowledgeable therapists, Melissa is the best
Melissa is so great at what she does! By the end of my six week run of pt I was totally pain free and so far I'm still going strong. I definitely recommend seeing Melissa if you're feeling any pain, she's super nice and competent and will have you feeling right again in no time.
Excel in Springfield is a great physical therapy site, specifically Russ and Melissa were extremely professional and made my rehabilitation very helpful and successful. I would highly recommend this specific excel office to everyone
I have used Excel Physical Therapy several times over the years. Most recently, I utilized the new Springfield, PA (Delaware County) location. The facility is beautiful, bright, and spacious! Melissa Tighe was my therapist. She was very knowledgable and made rehabilitation enjoyable after knee surgery. I always felt so accomplished when I left after an appointment.
My experience at Excel Physical Therapy was wonderful. I had knee surgery on a Tuesday and was at the office for my first visit on Friday. I was extremely nervous and in pain but Melissa was patient, understanding, and very accommodating. She created a plan that that pushed me but did not discourage me to continue rehab. Since I could not drive during my rehab, my husband attended my sessions.Melissa made not only myself but also my husband feel very welcomed. If I could give a higher rating I would. Melissa not only worked on the rehab of my knee, she also gave me my confidence back. I would recommend Melissa to anyone.
After experiencing severe sciatica pain for 3 months I started physical therapy with Melissa at Springfield location of Excel. She was thorough, professional, caring and knowledgeable. Within several weeks I was back to gardening, exercising, and living a full life painfree. She provided me with an exercise program for home & detailed instruction.The facility is lovely, atmosphere calm & patient centered, parking extremely convenient & care is personalized & professional. Can't recommend Melissa & her expertise enough! If I am ever in need of P.T. again this is where I will be heading!
I worked with Melissa TIghe DPT for my chronic low back pain. She did manual treatment and developed a regimen different from and more effective than any prior treatment I have had. I have ongoing back pain from degenerative spinal osteoarthritis and scoliosis, have tried many treatments over many years, and this was by far the most successful and allowed me to more easily go about my typical activities. Highly recommend!
Excellent experience! High marks for Excel Physical Therapy and director, Melissa Tighe. I recently required physical therapy after a rather debilitating knee injury. The initial consultation with Melissa was thorough, and she developed a comprehensive treatment plan to increase my strength and mobility, as well as protect against future injury. Over several weeks of sessions, she was clear in her instruction, encouraging, and made adjustments as was appropriate to my progress – which I might add was significant thanks to her expertise. I finished with a detailed post-treatment plan to continue strengthening. I recommend her and the clinic most highly, indeed!
I came to Excel PT to get help with the worst lower back pain I've ever experienced. Melissa helped me recover even more quickly than she anticipated. She took the time to fully understand my injury and gave great instruction and insight on how my injury occurred and what I needed to do to keep it from coming back. Despite being in physical pain, coming to PT at this facility was an overall pleasant experience, which really says something about this business and the staff. Diamond, who scheduled appointments and assisted with paperwork, was also a pleasure to speak with.
So I had Melissa as my therapist. She was great. I came in with a recurring neck tightness that simply wouldn't go away and since then have had no flare ups.She's got great table side manner as well. Very friendly and professional while always keeping scheduled times and adjusting to your goals.
Melissa, the Director , is just incredible. My husband spent 6 months in therapy with Melissa after a bilateral knee replacement (after a stroke the year prior) We have been to therapy before... After the stroke .......this is a big step up in quality, caring and success rate We highly recommend Excel and if you are in or around Springfield.....Melissa is a talented, passionate, super knowledgeable therapist. I can't even find the words to express how wonderful our experience with Excel has been. So glad we decided on them versus the other folks
Recently my husband went to Excel Physical Therapy in Springfield, PA for neck and shoulder pain. There he met Meilissa Tighe, Physical Therapist and Clinical Director. After analyzing his problems, Melissa put together a treatment plan of manipulation, stretches and exercises to address his pains. Adding more exercises as he progressed and making sure he did the exercises correctly. Melissa was professional, knowledgeable, caring and hard working, an all round incredible person! His primary doctor was so impressed with his progress, he asked for Melissa's business cards so he could recommend other patients to the Excel Springfield, PA site. My husband is greatly improved and now back to exercising and playing volleyball thanks to Melissia's therapy efforts.
I have a few issues -- balance and piriformis-- and Melissa Tighe, the Clinic Director, basically cured the prirformis with a couple of exercises and most of symptoms were gone within a day or two. We are working on balance and I couldn't be happier with my progress. I highly recommend this location and the employees who are most dedicated, Location is also great for me.
This is a great place for physical therapy. I can't recommend Melissa highly enough!
I went to Excel after a soccer-related knee injury and (OCA) post surgery. My PT Melissa is awesome! She is knowledgeable, effective, and patient. The entire staff is very professional and create a light-hearted friendly space to get through the journey. Whenever another PT had to cover for Melissa, they did not miss a beat. Also, scheduling appointments was very easy. Thank you Excel for helping improve my quality of life!
I went to Excel earlier this year due to a lot of pain in my knees that really made functioning day to day difficult. I was lucky to have Melissa to help me through the pain and get better. I think its a testament to how good she is that it is 8 months later and I still feel fantastic. Melissa is simply a wonderful, attentive, and supportive.
Melissa Tighe is a Rockstar!!! She has helped me on numerous occasions to get back up and running again. Melissa is very professional with a deep understanding of her craft. I found Melissa to be very accessible via phone or email. Highly recommend Melissa without any reservations.
I've had physical therapy before at a couple of other PT clinics in the city but I found Excel to be the most effective I've been to. Their therapists seem to be more attentive to your needs than others I've had. I am especially thankful to Melissa for effectively addressing the strength and range of motion in my arm after a rotator cuff injury.
I am 52 years old and crashed on my bicycle last Thanksgiving, which required surgery to repair my shoulder, rotator cuff and bicep tendon. I began my physical therapy with Melissa Tighe at Excel in February and finished this summer. I was extremely happy with the program, my recovery and personal care I received throughout the process. I would personally recommend Melissa Tighe to anyone in need of physical therapy.Melissa not only ran me through the standard exercises, but also taught me how to do them properly so I could learn how to target the correct muscles. She listened to my goals, helped me restore motion and strength in my arm to get me back to the activities I enjoyed before.A couple of times, I got the opportunity to watch Melissa working with other patients, I could see that she had adjusted her style for each individual, helping to motivate and move them along at their own pace and ability. Melissa was able to make it fun and challenging for me through the process. This motivation helped maximize the impact of each session.For anyone familiar with the road to recovery, it can have its ups and downs. I went from being pretty much unable to put on a shirt to almost complete recovery. The entire time, I felt like Melissa had my back. For example, due to a mix-up at the doctor's office, my initial PT script was not accurate. Melissa immediately contacted their office and straightened out my scripts and the recovery program. Fortunately I was working with her, because she quickly reacted and resolved a potential issue with my program. She truly cared for me as a patient.Melissa and the team at Excel also worked well together. The couple of times I worked with other therapists, Melissa made sure they were all in sync with my status and I felt like I was able to continue to make progress, as well as learn something from each of them. Excel also worked with my insurance to navigate getting additional therapy sessions approved so I could reach my recovery goals. The team there made it easy and enjoyable.The recovery process is hard enough, add in covid 19, a mix-up with my initial script and having my arm almost completely immobilized for 6 weeks, it is critical to have great physical therapy to complete the process. When I completed my therapy, I had almost 100% motion in my arm and Melissa left me with the knowledge of how to continue stretching and building strength on my own.I can honestly say, the overall experience was an amazing journey, very personalized and actually a lot of fun.Sean Cooke
Melissa is the best physical therapist I’ve ever had. She really listens to your needs and adjusts exercises to help you become your best self. I am grateful for her time and patience with me. I suffered from frozen shoulder and it was a long healing journey and she supported me every step of the way. 10/10 would recommend Melissa!!
I have had a very good experience with Physical Therapy at Excel, specifically with Melissa Tighe. She developed exercises designed for my issues, customized to suit the quirks particular to my body. I feel I made rapid progress, and am confident that I Can continue to progress on my own due to her guidance.
My wife and I have used Dr. MeiissaTighe at Excel for many years and for many different issues. we have found her to be extremely professional and most important very effective. She is caring and a pleasure to know. You couldn't have a better physical therapist.Anne & Michael Karmatz
I have been working with Melissa at Excel PT for the past few months now to treat my vertigo episodes and I cannot recommend these services enough. I wasn't aware that PT could help in getting rid of BPPV and it has been the solution I've needed. Melissa is professional, sympathetic, easy to talk to, and incredibly knowledgeable. She has been able to fit me right in for last minute appointments when I have had a vertigo episode pop out of nowhere and is always patient and understanding throughout our session. Thanks Excel and Melissa - keep up the top notch service - it does not go unnoticed!!
I recently broke my ankle and had Melissa as my Physical Therapist. She was awesome! She is very knowledgeable and was patient while explaining the different exercises that I needed to perform. My ankle has totally healed and I am back to running and playing pickleball thanks to her. Totally recommend her!
I can’t recommend Excel and Melissa, in particular, enough! She is knowledgeable, encouraging, caring, and helped me get back my strength after fracturing my knee cap. I looked forward to appointments and had a great experience!
I have back pain and neck problems since years. I did physical therapy in France before but it helped just for few months. Here I found more! Melissa is very professional, kind and know how to manage my different problems. The exercises are very easy to remember so easy to do after the therapy if we need to do them.I recommend very much Melissa and Excel Therapy.Thank you for everything.
