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!
14:57 05 Jul 22
I highly recommend Melissa Tighe for physical therapy. After knee surgery for a torn menicus, I had the good fortune of finding Melissa who got me back to my game of tennis. My whole experience with Melissa and Excel PT is five stars!

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!

Melissa took the time to do a thorough diagnosis and developed a targeted series of exercises that led to quick relief and cure. She has a great approach, and she made the whole experience a breeze.

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.
18:14 04 Apr 22
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.
18:13 13 Oct 21
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.
17:24 10 Oct 21
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.

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!!
12:35 08 Oct 21
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!
12:02 08 Oct 21
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!
02:52 08 Oct 21
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.

We have had a wonderful experience at Excel Physical Therapy. My mom experienced knee arthritis and sciatica pain. We were so lucky to find Melissa Tighe. She knew exactly what my mom needed and was able to provide excellent physical therapy which helped her so much with the pain she was experiencing. Moreover, everyone was extremely professional and pleasant. I would highly recommend Excel Physical Therapy to anyone who is looking.
17:32 07 Oct 21
My experiences at Excel PT have been excellent. Most recently and currently for ongoing chronic spine issues, drop foot, balance w Melissa. Her thoroughness, knowledge, skill in interpreting issues and then in treating them has been impressive. In the approximate year I have received therapy from her I have gained strength, had a reduction in pain, and am generally doing better than before this treatment.Several years ago I went to Excel with physician referral after tearing my ACL. Then Frank provided excellent therapy....my knee is still great!Excel is very professional while also personable. Each therapist and receptionist is helpful and respectful to all clients. I've observed all ages here, as well, from teens to elders. There seems to be help for all.
16:51 07 Oct 21
Melissa Tighe, the clinic director in Springfield, is just phenomenal. Over the past year, after she successfully treated an elbow problem of mine, I came back a few months later for her to treat my hip. Both are now working as they should, and thankfully I'm no longer in pain. Melissa is personable, thoughtful, and highly attentive. You cannot go wrong with her--just make sure to do the "homework" she assigns!
15:48 07 Oct 21
Excel PT have done an excellent job in helping me manage the various injuries from a college soccer career. Melissa Tighe, the clinic director, was particularly outstanding when we worked together to help me overcome a chronic Achilles/calf issue. I have no doubt she and the rest of the staff will continue to run a top notch PT facility, striking the perfect balance between providing quality care/maintaining the highest professional standards with the light-hearted friendly environment that always made me want to come back.
15:40 07 Oct 21
I highly recommend Melissa Tighe! I had a knee injury that really slowed me down. Now with Melissa's help I'm almost good as new and able to carry and run after my young grandchildren! Thank you so much for your skills, encouragement, good humor, and kindness, Melissa! Best wishes!
15:18 07 Oct 21
I had a scaphoiectomy last December and went to Excel and was introduced to Dr. Tighe. Though the PT was very difficult I regained most of my range of motion and strength and am doing very well today. Melissa was very professional, knowledgeable, and kind. 100% would recommend their team to help wherever PT is needed.
14:58 07 Oct 21
Last spring, my young daughter had a nasty concussion. We were extremely lucky that she was able to work with Melissa at Excel. Melissa was absolutely amazing - she made PT fun for my daughter and kept her engaged, working hard and smiling throughout multiple sessions a week. We saw a difference immediately and our daughter looked forward to their sessions together. Her doctors at CHOP were so impressed by the progress our daughter made under Melissa's care. I cannot recommend Melissa highly enough - she's an excellent PT!
14:37 07 Oct 21
Excel is a first class operation. I have been going to it on and off for 20 years. They understand the body and what you're going through, they make therapy fun and help you get back to functioning at a high level. Melissa is wonderful to work with. She has a fantastic personality and is a joy to be around. Her goal is your goal, which is to make sure that whatever you're there for, that you will leave feeling better than when you started. I would highly recommend Excel and Melissa for PT.
