Our Clinicians | Rachel O’Donnell | IMPACT Physical Therapy

Rachel O’Donnell


As a new graduate physical therapist and over 3 years’ experience as a certified athletic trainer, I am ecstatic to provide compassionate, evidence-based, individualized, and quality physical therapy care to patients with a wide variety of conditions. I believe in treating the entire individual, and understand an injury is never JUST an injury; it encompasses the entire body of the patient, as well as their psychosocial well-being. I am dedicated to providing the highest quality of care by putting my patients needs and interests first. By completing thorough and individualized evaluations and treatments, I am able to target the injured tissue, as well as contributing areas, and thus provide a comprehensive and successful rehabilitative process. I deeply believe in providing education in addition to physical care. I believe that if a patient understands WHY they are in pain, or what injury/surgery they have sustained, then they will be better equipped to successfully tackle the rehabilitation process.

Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training (2018): University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh; Doctor of Physical Therapy (2021): Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science.

Licensed Physical Therapist; Certified Athletic Trainer; Licensed Athletic Trainer; American Heart Association Basic Life Supporter (BLS) First Aid and CPR Certified. I am hoping to become certified in ASTYM, pelvic health physical therapy, and worker’s compensation in the near future.

As a lifelong resident of the Northwest Side of Chicago, I am passionate about helping patients in my community. I am the daughter and sister of a Chicago Firefighter and a Chicago Police Officer, and I am passionate about helping our first responders safely return to work. I have clinical experience working with older adults, middle-aged adults, adolescents, children, and infants. I have worked with patients that are post-surgical, acutely injured, chronically injured, athletes, orthopedically involved, neurologically involved, and that are worker’s compensation. I have experience treating pelvic floor patients while under the direct supervision of a Pelvic Health Physical Therapist, and am interested in becoming certified in the near future. My goal is to provide compassionate, competent, and ethical treatment in order for my patients to receive quality care and recovery.
