What we treat

Below you’ll find the 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.

Kimmie, (Kimberly) was my Physical Therapist at Excel Waldwick. From the start, she was very thorough and understanding. Kimmie and the team are very caring with their patients. They listen to your needs and help you with your recovery. I highly recommend them to all my friends and family.
I had a serious knee surgery that required months of rehab and the team at Excel in Waldwick was phenomenal and got me back to 100% better than I could have ever expected. Kimmie is a tremendous PT as well as Nicole and the entire team. I highly recommend Excel in Waldwick to anyone needing physical therapy.

I have been going to Excel PT in Waldwick for many years after a few surgeries and injuries. The staff is amazing, they spend time with patients and are genuinely interested in the health, well-being and recovery of their patients.

Excel PT Waldwick is great. Pan has really helped me strengthen my back. He took the time to understand my condition and my goals. He has built a plan to get me back to the activities I was previously able to do. He spends time with each patient and genuinely cares about my well being. The facility is up to date and comfortable and i feel safe with the procedures they have put into place. I look forward to my physical therapy visits.
Waldwick Excel Physical Therapy is THE best!!!! Pan helped me to gain back the use of my right shoulder after rotator cuff surgery a few months ago. The support staff is fabulous and all pandemic protocols are in place - I actually looked forward to going to PT!
Great place all employees very knowledgeable professional personable staff Pon has helped my recovery after hip replacement
Excel in Waldwick is awesome! I'm finishing an extended rehab following double knee replacement surgery and I've received excellent care from every single person I worked with – from my PT Nicole to all the assistants and other PTs. They all are caring, supportive and always upbeat, even when I was discouraged and/or in pain. In addition to my own excellent care, I was able to observe them working with other patients who had a variety of issues and injuries. They were always professional and seemed to be highly skilled. They also have good Covid protocols and keep things safe and clean. I can’t thank them enough for taking care of me during this tough (but ultimately successful) recovery!
I've used the services of Excel Physical Therapy several times over past years for recovery from sports related injuries including total knee replacement, replacement of a fractured vertebrae in my neck and most recently for rotator cuff surgery. All I can say is that these guys are aces. I remain competitive in my sport at age 69 (placed 7th in my age group at the Aquabike World Championship in 2016 and looking to go back to Worlds again next year). Their knowledge and understanding of how my body works is incredible and the friendly, caring attention of everyone on staff is unmatched. I've used a couple of other places for PT before going to Excel, and I can comfortably say that they are unmatched in the knowledge, caring, and friendly staff categories!
Excel is the best! They helped me recover from knee replacement surgery in record time. Professional knowledgeable staff, excellent facilities
Chose this facility for PT following knee replacement. What a wonderful group of friendly, caring, knowledgeable professionals. From the office/reception staff to the PT teams, I could not have asked for a greater environment for my recovery. My therapists, Bill and Shannon were encouraging and spot on in my treatment. Every concern was addressed. Best place to get back to your old self with caring and endless encouragement. Thank you all!
Today will be my third visit to Excel. Ray has been fantastic as well as others I have had limited contact with. Extremely professional, and pushing me more than I push myself. Well staffed and great equipment, this is much nicer than another place I visited for other therapies. Very happy so far with these guys/gals.
