I highly, highly recommend Impact PT. The staff is AMAZING! Everyone there is super knowledgeable and kind. It is apparent that they care about their patients and want what’s best for them. They go above and beyond to help. I can’t express how grateful I am to have found this facility. They quite literally gave me my life back. I was dealing with a terrible neck injury and wondering if I’d ever have a chance at recovery when I stumbled across Impact PT. I’ve had the pleasure of being able to work with Danny, Jordyn, and Gretchen specifically and I can’t speak highly enough of them. They’re angels on earth. If you’re looking for a physical therapist, this is your place. I’ll happily tell everyone I know about Impact PT. I feel very blessed to have found Impact PT and to have my life back. I’ll forever be grateful!

Impact PT has vastly improved my overall ability to get back on my feet. My back and nerve injury left me in pain from my hip to my toes. Throughout the therapy sessions my PT has worked on my injury with massage, exercises and many other techniques. She has gotten me back to moving pain free playing pickleball, walking, and working in the yard…..All of the PT’S, PTA’S and techs that work at Impact are concerned about you as a person not just a patient. If you need a PT and therapy go to IMPACT PT in Champaign. You won’t be disappointed!!Mark MoberlyLeRoy

I HIGHLY recommend Impact PT! I Have had PT at our local clinics and they last 20-30 min with minimal instruction on what we should be doing at home. Impact has 60 min sessions that include different therapies I never heard of in the clinic setting. They go above and beyond! I am working with Paige for my lumbar and Danny for Vertigo. The whole team is friendly and knowledgeable! Jordyn works hard with your insurance and physician to get you the coverage your allowed.Thank you Impact and to my Referring friend!

About 3 weeks before a trip to Switzerland, I strained my right Achilles tendon and the soleus muscle in my right calf got very tight while running. Paige treated the injuries with scraping and dry needling and gave me an excellent rehab regimen. By the day of my first hike, I was nearly 100% recovered and only felt mild discomfort. After that I was pain free during additional hikes, walking 6 miles or more most days, and doing a via ferrata and wet canyoneering. I'm still doing her rehab exercises and stretches to make sure my calves stay strong and flexible. Thanks to her I was able to have a great vacation!

Impact Physical Therapy in Champaign is incredible. Several people recommended them for the elbow pain I was experiencing from working out. I tried online exercises and stretches, but it wasn't until I went to Impact that I was able to start exercising again with confidence, knowing that I was on a path to healing. I worked with Daniel Cummins and he focussed on my goal of getting back to exercising. I'm so grateful for this place and their team. I will definitely go back when I have other physical therapy needs, and I am now one of those folks that recommend this place to anyone else with issues.

I've had back pain for about a decade, the dry needling is the only single-event thing I've tried that has lasting effects. Painful but very effective. I'm grateful for this treatment option and the expertise of the staff here 🙂

The therapists bring tons of energy to their work, which is actually a fun place to spend time. More importantly, the therapists know their stuff. I have been working largely with Daniel, whose knowledge is impressive. He also has a knack for providing encouragement, in his quiet way. Someone who would be a great friend!I strongly recommend Impact as the place to go for high-quality therapy.Jim Kuklinski

This is my first experience with physical therapy. Impact was one of two places my primary could give me a referral to. I chose Impact because scraping and dry needling are services they offer. I wanted the most options possible because my pain can be severe. From day one I have always by greeted by name, listened to, guided, and encouraged. I'm about half way through my allotted visits and am not healed yet but definitely improving. The staff is friendly, professional and they keep your activities going without making you wait around. Keeping your pace and comfort level is a priority of the staff at Impact!

Went there a couple years ago after fracturing my foot. Tony & the others are great. So after a rotator cuff surgery on October 14th. When they asked where I wanted to do therapy I said Impact. They are great about 1.5 weeks in & really getting things moving. Having more mobility is great still have a long road to go but very happy with the progress so far. Thanks for all you do

IMPACT Physical Therapy (South Loop Chicago) is great! The therapists are very knowledgable and kind, and the whole staff is friendly and helpful. When my insurance ran out, they worked with me to switch to 5-packs of shorter visits to help me continue to heal without paying for a full PT appointment out of pocket. My injury (intercostal and back muscular issues due to rowing) is largely healed now, and I think going to IMPACT played a huge role in my quick recovery.
18:25 12 Oct 21
The group at Impact Physical Therapy go above and beyond. They are detailed and listen to what you are saying which is very important to me. They take the time to evaluate your issue and work along with you to ensure you are progressing. My therapist is Tony and he is awesome! Very friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend them to everyone.

The STAFF is amazing. They are very empathetic, caring, thoughtful and professional. If you have a question regarding your treatment plan your therapist will talk with you and explain in terms you will understand. Their schedule is very accommodating to work with you. Tony was my therapist who helped me in so many ways with the exercises and what will work and approximately how long roughly recovery will be and my best options.If you require Physical Therapy this is the place for you. They definitely are an A+ quality.

Each appointment is focused...on treatment, improvement, and achieving the necessary goals. They also have fun while they're doing it! HIGHLY recommend them and if you're tired of people just doing template work on you instead of actually treating your individual body, get on their schedule!

Everyone at Impact Physical Therapy if very professional, knowledgeable and patient with their clients. I have been going to Gretchen for at least 10 years. I couldn’t ask for anything more from a therapist. She has helped me before and after 2 back surgeries, along with other physical problems. She is amazing!

My daughter really liked the program and care the staff gave her for a bad knee injury and then surgery recovery. That prompted me to see what they could do for neck trigger point clusters hoping that relief from those would take down a nasty tinnitus. They’ve given me significant relief and we’re now going for full relief. Love them all for their expertise, care, and thoughtful kindness.

Everyone at Impact is so incredibly knowledgeable and uplifting! They bring a combination of expertise, motivation and compassion to every appointment. I gained more self-awareness and knowledge about the mechanics of my core, back and hips. That helped tremendously when working on my therapy at home outside of regular appointments. I believe all of this contributed greatly to my recovery from my C-section and old injuries from a car accident. Thank you to Gretchen and everyone at Impact!!!

I've been a patient at Impact off and on since 2017. The team there is great! Recently I needed PT for some rehab post cancer treatment. As my immune system was compromised, I needed a private room. They were very accommodating and the room was usually always ready for me to go in without waiting in the lobby. I would recommend this clinic for PT, you will get results!

Spent over 5 months with Tony Testin and the Champaign Team rehabbing my repaired rotator cuff. Hands on therapy and supervised exercises gave me the confidence and guidance with my home therapy program. In between sessions, Tony was available to answer questions. The facility is large enough to socially distance between clients and personnel. Parking and a bus stop are conveniently located a few steps from the door. I recommend Impact Therapy if you want to get back to participating in your favorite sports and fitness activities.

They are an amazing team I have used them for my back, my hip, my shoulder and my hands. Gretchen and Danny and the rest of her team have been amazing and have always helped me achieve my goals of recovery. I have been elsewhere prior to Impact and had little to no results with only 15 minutes of PT. At Impact it is a full hour plus because Gretchen and her team truly care about my recovery.

I am 71 years old and had pain in my leg at night and also was not able to stand up completely straight. Gretchen figured out what was causing the problems AND what to do to fix them. The therapies and exercises have helped so much! I have no more pain in my leg and I am able to stand straight. If an exercise didn't work well for me, she came up with other ones until she found one that I could do. She, the other therapists, and the receptionist are excellent, thorough, creative, caring professionals. I highly recommend Impact Physical Therapy.

Impact is a wonderful place to do physical therapy. The therapists are knowledgeable and friendly. Gretchen is very knowledgeable and helpful in coming up with ideas to make an exercise conducive to the stage of recovery. She’s been available by email or text, in between sessions, if I have questions or concerns about exercises I can do at home. It’s a clean, upbeat environment. I definitely recommend Impact for any physical therapy needs.
