What we treat

Below on this page, you’ll find the full list of what we treat and the programs we offer. A high percentage of injuries and pain syndromes result from weakness and/or tightness in neighboring regions of the musculoskeletal system. Our therapists evaluate possible compensatory patterns in addition to the area of pain or loss of function. This thorough examination allows us to better identify and eliminate all underlying causes so patients achieve lasting results. We also focus on educating you, so that you’re empowered to take control of their injury, grow stronger than ever, and prevent recurrences.

We understand the impact that pain and loss of function can have on the lives of our patients. Our entire staff, from the front desk to our clinical team, provides a compassionate and motivational environment dedicated to healing. We ensure we are meeting each patient’s unique needs so their experience is both enjoyable and rewarding.

We have extensive experience treating a variety of conditions including shoulder injuries and surgeries, knee injuries and reconstructions/replacements, spinal conditions and surgeries, sports injuries and muscle traumas, chronic and acute pain syndromes, neck conditions and surgeries, pre and post-surgical cases, geriatric conditions, work-related injuries, chronic pain conditions, lower back pain, general strains and sprains, joint replacement recovery, vestibular and balance conditions, auto accidents, and much more!

Excel/Ivy is a fantastic place for PT. The staff are friendly and very informed. They listen to the patient. I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience there. I’m working with Josh and he gets an A+. I’ve been to two other PT places nearby and they pale in comparison.

Daughter has had hip issues for awhile. Was with Alex for 9 months prior to surgery and she is now back with him again post surgery.

I am a 75 year old man with metastatic stage 4 Thyroid cancer and suffering from sitting too long during this pandemic. This sitting has brought me to a place of problems with my hips and sciatica nerves. Excel team especially my therapist Matthew and my scheduler Sierra have brought me to a place of movement and freedom from pain in my hips legs and sciatica nerve. The team does not let me fool around with my therapy; they watch ,assist, and make sure I do my therapy correctly- the results are life changing for me. Freedom from pain and free to move out of my chair are more than I could have asked for from therapy. John L Radcliffe Jr.

Excel came recommended from my doctor and as a facility, the experience has been excellent. Well run front desk/scheduling, clean therapy area, well equipped. Perhaps most importantly has been the skill and effectiveness of the therapist with whom I have worked: Alex Schweitzer. He brings extraordinary skill and commitment to the process.

Excel Physical Therapy staffers are caring people who show real interest in your improvement every time they see you. Its hard to leave when they fix you up. Unfortunately I have had to use them for three different situations. When the next time comes I know I'll walk out fully fixed. They'll also give me good directions on exercises to do on my own. Thanks JCIII

Outstanding ratio of physical therapists to patients. Excellent diagnostic skills and interpersonal rapport.

Competent, friendly and caring professional staff. Rehabbed at the Villanova offices there 10 years ago and find some of the PTs still there offering excellent service.

I came to Excel (Villanova) after a disappointing experience at another chain PT practice--disappointing because of lax covid precautions and an overreliance on PT assistants who simply said "do 10 of these" and walked away. At Excel, I had the good fortune to speak with Julie Blanchard (DPT) prior to coming in for my eval and first treatments so she had a clear sense of my particular case and needs. I greatly appreciate the intensive, hands-on treatment Julie and Excel provides.

I have been to Excel in Villanova about six times through the years. The facility is top notch, with convenient parking. The therapists are extremely knowledgeable. They also are very personable and professional, which helps with dealing with the pain of an injury. The receptionists are also to be commended. They are friendly and efficient. And if they are busy, the therapists jump right in to help.

So impressed with Excel and Amanda. Spot-on diagnosis. Amanda was wonderful with her exercises and answering all my questions-even when I was away! Highly recommend Excel and Amanda!

There are many things that make this a five star review. The friendliness and professionalism of the staff, the quality of care and the flexibility of appointments are just a few. I didn't think I would enjoy physical therapy, but Dr. Schweitzer and the rest of the team make it an enjoyable experience.

I received very effective treatment at Excel for my strained hip muscle. The staff is very professional but friendly and strives to return every client to excellent health. My experience was a most pleasant one.

I’ve had knee issues for the last 2.5 years following a surgery. I did not do proper therapy immediately following the surgery and so it has been stiff ever since. After working with Alex for one session, I felt an immediate difference. I’m on week 3 of 10 weeks of therapy and we are making great progress. I have much more movement/

This location is great! I’ve been a couple times with a few years between and both times I’ve had great therapists... Julie is working on my back and has a lot of good techniques for relief and stretching exercises the hopefully alleviate the issue.

Have been here for many injuries over the years. My sports are yoga, road cycling, and swimming and unfortunately recently just channel surfing. Some of the staff from almost 10 years ago are still there and even remember me by my nickname! All the PTs are excellent, especially at manual work which requires both training and intuition. Programs are individualized which I found not to be the case at other practices even in the same network. Therapists check in with you at the start of each appointment to tailor that appointment as needed. Instruction on in office and home exercises is precise and they keep their eyes on you so you get it right - again unlike other practices where I’ve observed patients moved thru protocols like cattle and without supervision. Scheduling is seamless and appointments run on time. I love this place for their expertise, compassion and spirited ambience.

Julie Blanchard, PT, DPT at Excel PT in Villanova is a wonderful physical therapist. Thanks to Julie I can turn my neck again, drive safely again, and sleep through the night without neck pain awakening me. I never expected such excellent results; I am very appreciative. As I got to know Julie during my therapy sessions, I found her to also be a wonderful person, which was a positive addition to my fine experience at Excel PT.John Carty, Esq., EA, BA, MBA, JD, HD

I've worked with several therapists in a number of settings over the years and Excel's Villanova clinic is terrific. The staff's knowledge is exceeded only by their commitment to helping me get back into the game, and doing so with enthusiasm and patience. They have probably treated my particular injuries a thousand times before with other patients but they make me feel that I'm being listened to, and cared for, as an individual.

The best place for physical therapy! I have worked with Russ and Val and they are both so amazing. They care so much about you and they work with you to really get you out of pain. I saw Val back when I was a D1 softball pitcher in college and I had just gotten wrist surgery prior to my freshman year and she got me back to 100%. I am currently working with Russ for post labrum hip surgery, but i have a lot of complex issues/injuries other than that and he has done such an amazing job with my hip and all of my other issues. Wouldn't go anywhere else!

Excel Physical Therapy helped me to recover from my foot operation. I have been working with Julie Blanchard some evenings after work. She massages my foot then helps me to strengthen the toes, foot and ankle. I've learned how to workout my calves, knees and thighs so that I can thoroughly support my foot. I have gone from a slight limp to a confident walk. Excel has been invaluable!
22:56 26 Apr 18
The Excel therapists are very skilled and pleasant. All my injuries have been resolved and I am pain free.
23:02 09 Apr 18
They are very "hands-on" and a very low patient-to-therapist ration which means a lot of individual care. Thank you

Great hours! Friendly staff! Very happy we chose Excel!

Struggling with a running injury for more than a year, Lara Hamad Quisumbing, stretched and massaged the deepest of muscles improving my flexibility and reducing pain levels during running. The best part: the myriad of home-exercises given which empower me to maintain her work, hopefully, for years after I'm finished with PT.

The staff have been very helpful and I'm happy with thier work.

I had one on one therapy with a extremely knowledgeable therapist. When she was not there, had he same wonderful treatment with another therapist. I gained quite a bit of information about my rehab. I highly recommend them and I would go there again. From the front desk receptionist to the rest of the employees, everything is for your rehab!

As someone who has utilized a lot of physical therapy due mostly to athlete injuries, I find Excel PT excellent. I am currently working with Russ and am incredibly impressed with his knowledge and abilities. I am most grateful.Rhonda Cohen
