I have had physical therapy and occupational therapy in several good places but impact therapy is definitely the best for me. They understand me and my needs they have patience with me and make me feel like family it’s good conversation good work out no other better place and I’d rather have physical therapy then impact therapy.

Impact Therapy was suggested by a friend in the business. The experience from start to finish was great. Their knowledge of insurance, and was a big help. The staff was extremely helpful, my daughter saw Ashley for a pulled quad. She was able to work with her while she was still playing sports. Definitely would recommend!!

A huge thanks to Courtney and the rest of the Impact team for helping me reach my goal of hiking the Grand Canyon! Had physical therapy on my knee and back right before the trip and was able to shoulder a 35lb pack down and up more than 6,000 feet with no problems. It doesn't matter if your goal is to climb a mountain or climb out of bed, the supportive therapists at Impact Therapy will assist you to feel better. Awesome job and great results from Impact Therapy.

I highly recommend Impact Physical Therapy Oak Lawn. I am a senior citizen who enjoys running. I sustained a soft tissue hip injury and thought my running days were behind me. Courtney and Ashley worked skillfully using a number of different techniques to rehab my injury while concurrently prescribing strength training and stretching exercises, which I continue to do. I am delighted to say that several months after completing my PT, I am back running and looking forward to my first post-pandemic / post injury race - the 2022 Ridge Run! I am forever grateful to be back running - especially at this age! The pic is from a cool down following a run In Florida. Thank you, Courtney and Ashley!

I had hip surgery and have been coming to Impact for therapy.several times. Everyone is great from receptionist Debbie to the therapist. I’ve seen Jack for several issues and he is great. I’ve had Courtney once and she was good too. I enjoy the atmosphere and all the people that work there. I’ve been to other PT facilities neither was as good as Impact. I thank them all for the great services they provide.ThanksJanet Perkins

I came to Impact right as the stay at home order in IL went into effect because I’d had shoulder pain for a year and a half. I met Nikki, who worked with me for 9 weeks to build my strength, stretch my muscles, and really get my rotator cuff issues in check. Mark worked tirelessly, cleaning off every weight, strap, every piece of equipment that I or other patients touched. I made great progress, and Impact and its employees are the reason why.I did not know that patients can go to Impact without a prescription from an MD! When I learned this, I encouraged my husband and son to go in and get evaluated, one for elbow pain and one for neck pain. They have just begun their visits with Nikki.If you have pain, don’t wait! Go for an evaluation and start building toward a pain free life. These folks know what they’re doing!

Impact Physical Therapy was suggested to me by my doctor’s physician assistant. I started therapy in January for weakness in my leg. I was assigned to Nikki. I couldn’t have asked for a better therapist. She is knowledgeable, encouraging and patient. As a matter of fact, everyone I have interacted with at Impact have been welcoming, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. If you are considering physical therapy, I highly recommend you consider Impact Physical Therapy.

I had one other experience in physical therapy years ago, and I came away a skeptic. This summer I tore my pectoral muscle both in the muscle and from the bone. I needed surgery. I was also aware I would have to give physical therapy another shot. It is night and day from my last experience to this one. It’s still early in the process, but my therapist Courtney is great at her job. I don’t ever leave reviews, but I felt an obligation. Yes, she gets paid, but I get the sense that it’s more than that to her. Anyway, yeah all positive.

My wife and I have done Physical Therapy at Impact Oak Lawn on numerous occasions. Deb at the desk makes appointments very easy to schedule and maneuvers through insurance issues so the patient doesn’t have to worry about them. I’ve worked with all the therapists there and all are very skillful, empathetic, and encouraging. I couldn’t be more thankful for the rehab after my knee replacement, back issues, and Achilles tendinitis. I would heartily recommend them to everyone.

Impact Physical Therapy is a fantastic clinic to help recover from any injury. I have been to other local clinics for previous sports injuries and this has been the best experience of them all. Nicole has been great and is very knowledgeable, as is the rest of the staff who I have worked with. She listens to how I am feeling and can make adjustments to increase or decrease the difficulty. I am very happy that I decided to go to Impact and am back moving well before my doctor thought I would be.

Although I’ve only been here for my rehab, due to right rotator cuff surgery, for one week. I already know this staff filled with well qualified, and excellent trainers is going to make my shoulder whole again so I can get back to job as a police officer, and the active sports life that I live.

I researched multiple places before committing to impact physical therapy. I was extremely satisfied. They are a great group of people who make you feel welcome and down to earth. I had recently had a meniscus tear surgery overseas and came to the Chicago area to visit my family. I need to continue my physical therapy. I set a goal with the physical therapist and after 4 weeks to walk unassisted. I met the goal and more. I definitely recommend the whole team.

Impact Physical Therapy in Oak Lawn is a great place! This place and the people who work there made a good impression on me as soon as I walked in the door. From the receptionist to the Physical Therapists and the Therapy Assistants, everyone is friendly, kind, professional and extremely competent. During the hour I spend there, someone is working with me to fix my shoulder injury all the time. I am so thankful that I have Courtney and Barbara working with me, but my observation is that everyone employed there works really hard to make his/her patient better! I am so happy my friend recommended Impact Physical Therapy to me. I love going there.

I am a runner and injured my calf over and over. This last time I really did it. It was bruised all up and down. I could not walk up stairs. I went to impact and worked with Ashley Dunne. The therapy was hard at times but she got me healed and taught me exercises for home. I have been pain and injury free ever since. Plus she is very nice and makes the visits pleasant! Forever grateful!

I have done physical therapy several times, and I have never had such success as I have with Courtney. The staff is so friendly and supportive. I swore I would never be able to walk around the block 2 times or go up and down the stairs easily. I am now able to do this! I was getting therapy for the same injury for 8 months, and I have had more success in the last 2 weeks than I did there.

I am a first time patient at Impact, a second therapy session in three years for back issues. Nicole got right to work on and with me, and every stretch and bend has proven beneficial. She knows her stuff, she works attentively with me and all her clients, and the staff is hard working and dedicated as well. I am very happy to have chosen Impact and assigned to Nicole. I hope not to need therapy again but if do, Impact will be my first choice.

Hello everyone, I do pray these words can give you some comfort soon. I became a patient with Impact Physical Therapy because of Vertigo. I feel for anyone who has had to deal with Vertigo or even motion sickness. I had the opportunity to work with one of the Impact associates by the name of Nicole. This girl knows her skills and knows how to treat Vertigo. I had to see Nicole twice a week for a month because my positional Vertigo being an A typical rare case. You see my Vertigo began in March and continued for 3 months. I am so Grateful for Nicole and the whole Impact staff. I had a difficult start and all the staff was so accommodating to my needs and schedule. The staff has everything set up and are able to accommodate all different types of therapy that I didn't know existed. The place has enough room to allow people to do what is needed to improve their quality of life in a very clean and healthy environment!!!Good Luck to you all I hope and pray you have the Best experience as I did. Mostly Thank you Nicole for being the caring and understanding person you are and for helping me get back to living again 😉♥️

I have nothing but praise for IMPACT PT. To start, the evaluation of my body from an injury was very professionally done by my assigned PT. The plan she made for my recovery is working very well. Of course it helps that I can do all the exercises she taught me at home on the in- between days - except for the ultrasound therapy.The teamwork there is upbeat and very helpful to everyone!
