I highly recommend Matt Z. At the south loop location! I am a middle aged crossfitter and Matt helped me figure out my imbalances so that I am able to safely continue doing what I love! Matt was a great listener, kind and very knowledgeable. Thank you for helping me, Matt:-)

My foot had an unfortunate accident with a rock and after poor diagnostics I decided to come to Impact for a 3rd opinion and hopefully return to activity. I first met with Liz in the fall, after her exam and a follow up appointment she used her judgement on my progress for a referral to a phenomenal foot and ankle physician, and graciously gave a donated boot to me. Her instincts were spot on - I had a tendon tear and several sprains. After I got treatment for the tear I knew exactly where I wanted to be for rehab. I was paired with Alex in January who has provided the best PT experience I’ve ever had (3 in Chicago and 3 out of state). Alex listens carefully, asks quality questions and targets her manual therapy to address acute and global needs. She’s developed a comprehensive rehab exercise program for me that develops my overall recovery and tailored to my mid-term and long term recovery goals (lifting, running and racing). During one set back, she balanced listening, reassurance, and critical evaluation of where I was and how to adjust my treatment. I’ve also had the opportunity to work with others there when scheduling was difficult (including Matt who was also great). I seriously believe that this is THE place to go if you want to recover and return to activity and I have no hesitation to go here proactively in the future.

I am completely happy with Impact Physical Therapy. From scheduling through each personally designed session I know that results are going to make a long term difference in my health.My therapist and team are knowledgeable and empathic while developing my strength and perseverance.I will use these sessions as the basis for my training regimen afterwards.I urge anyone who needs PT, short term or longer, to get an appointment. Ask for Courtney.

I am very impressed with Alexandra Timm. As a dancer, I was looking for someone who understood our common injuries. I was very lucky to see a doctor who knew her and recommended her talents. She found my issue right away, and thus far, both appointments I have had with her resulted in significant progress. I certainly hope this trajectory continues, and I have faith that Alex will bring me back to normal.

It has been 12 weeks since I came here for PT after an ACL surgery! I didn’t do my surgery in the US so communication with my surgeon etc was tough, but Impact did their utmost best and it shows! Not to jinx it but I’m walking great, bending great, and my knee feels normal again 🙂Everyone from the front office to the assistants and the PTs are absolute rockstars — sessions always start on time and they have pretty good availability (esp given how busy they are). My therapists Kristin, Matt and Deja are the 🐐 of physical therapy for real. I’m feeling confident in the recovery because of their great hands on work every session. Would recommend!!

I am very pleased with my therapy experience at Impact. After some initial conversation about my injury, Alex recommended some deep massage of my hip and 3 exercises I can do at home. From the first treatment I felt relief. In fact she discovered that I had tightness of the muscle in my right hip so I am being treated for that as well. I am so satisfied with my therapy I scheduled an appointment with my Orthopedic Surgeon so I can began therapy with Alex for my neck. I am a believer.

I completed physical therapy at Impact's South Loop location in 2022. The team helped me resolve pain and weakness in both legs. This was my first time in PT, and I was unsure if it would help. The team at Impact was a vital part of my recovery. They helped me stregthen my legs and developed a post-PT plan. It took working out several months after PT, but I've regained mobility and reduced pain. PT is hard work, but the amazing team at Impact got me moving again. I am so thankful for their professional knowledge and the positive atmosphere at the clinic.

My wife found this clinic for pelvic floor PT after giving birth and I became a patient soon after. Everything about my experience has been great. Scheduling is reasonably quick for new patients.I saw Matt and he methodically and holistically worked with me to reduce my hip pain. He helped me change my posture, adjust my sleeping position and do exercises to strengthen my hips and gluts. It was a process, but I steadily got better. I particularly appreciate how he did research to identify new ways of treating me, truly acting with ownership. To finally heal, he realized I needed pelvic floor support and referred me to Deja, who got me to the finish line. The reception team is friendly and easy to schedule with.

I never write reviews, but Impact deserves one. The staff at Impact from the front desk, techs, to the PT’s were all fantastic throughout my journey to rehab my shoulder and neck after I was in a car accident earlier this summer. The entire clinic has a great rapport with one another and are always super welcoming. I was lucky enough to be booked with Courtney for my initial evaluation and she was fantastic from the start. She was able to help me get back to where I needed to be, all while having fun while doing it. I hope I don’t need PT again in the near future, but if I do I know where I’m going and who I’m going to.

As an active senior, I’ve had some challenges with tennis elbow(s) and more recently plantar fasciitis. At Impact, I was able to get in quickly for a screening, and am now working with Matt and Alex to address this persistent foot problem. I’m making significant progress! Once again, a solution based and positive experience at Impact South Loop.

For all athletes, especially long distance runners…I highly recommend you to book a recovery session to reduce/prevent injuries. The staff…..awesome, the facility….awesome, the equipment ……awesome, the prices…awesome, you’re awesome too if you’re reading this. My single session came with a 10 min cold plunge and 10-15 min leg compression. I will be back for sure and special shout-out to Kaitlin for making my friend and I experience everything.Ready to attack more training now.#RoadToTheChicagoHalf #HealthisWealth

Love the Impact team at South Loop! They helped me quickly recover from a few running injuries this spring. Deja is an excellent PT and provided me with great knowledge of my injuries and effective exercises and strategies for strengthening and maintenence. Would highly recommend them for physical therapy especially for athletes.

My experience with Impact has been everything I had hoped in physical therapy. My therapist Déjà is knowledgeable, professional and personable. She is exceptional and I would recommend her to anyone needing any physical therapy. You cannot go wrong with Impact and if you are lucky enough to be assigned to work with Déjà, you need to thank your lucky stars. She is the very best!

You will not find a better PT in Chicago! Every therapist there is the best of the best. They also make PT fun! Shout out to Alex Timm who has gotten me to the start line and even a marathon PR through many running injuries. I feel stronger than ever in my form and it is all because of this place. They really know what they are doing! Also, all the recovery tools and options available with the Chicago Recovery Room combined makes this place a no brainer for runners who are injured or just looking for top notch recovery!

I give IMPACT PT South Loop and Therapist Deja 5 stars. Deja and everyone that treated me was compassionate and highly knowledgeable. Deja carefully explained everything that she was doing, backed up by computer diagrams so that I would understand. I appreciated all of the hard work by all that treated me, which I can attribute to my successful healing. I would highly recommend them.

I Just started with Beth and I came from a place that was limited with the modalities that impact is known for, and although I'm in the beginning phase I feel like I'm in good hands, oddly which is a complaint with the OTHER PLACE (no scar tissue management or manipulation) , I had knee replacement surgery and they NEVER went hands on they were just crazy about rubber band exercises which honestly I could do AT HOME, on my own. So I'll come back to add to this review after I get more appts completed and experience the advanced technology that I transferred here for ..... 2 of 36 appts soo far. Beth is GREAT very KNOWLEDGEABLE and doesn't mind answering questions.

I have had excellent treatment at the hands of Kristin Morrison at Impact Physical Therapy in the South Loop. So glad that this is the most convenient location for me to receive physical therapy because I am getting old but the team there is keeping me from completely falling apart. The entire staff is friendly and helpful in getting me appointments, working through a series of exercises, and making sure I follow my home exercise program as well.

I have been seeing Brittni for about a month and cannot recommend her enough! I have been dealing with an over use injury in my wrist and she has helped me make significant improvements. She does a great job with soft tissue work and provides exercises that I can easily do at home to help my recovery. She’s been super supportive of helping me figure out how to return to exercise after a long period where I was scared to do anything without hurting my wrist.Yesterday we tried dry needling for the first time (my first time ever) and it was a great experience. I have a slight fear of needles and Brittni went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable during treatment.Brittni and the team at IMPACT are fantastic!

Beth is amazing. She takes time to listen to you and explain the details to make you understand the muscle system, root causes and the treatment process. She is very patient, practical, knowledgeable and precise. I had a lot of pain that was going on for a while on my upper left side: in shoulder, back, arm, neck, head, face. She identified it to be a shoulder rotator cuff issue referring pain everywhere and within a couple weeks I made a lot of progress in the pain relief and increased range of motion under Beth’s treatment plan. Now we are working on the strengthening. I had a session with Liz as well and she was great too. Everyone at Impact is very friendly and supportive. The home exercise plan through the app helps to keep you on track. I would highly recommend Impact.

MY physician referred me for physical therapy I have never had physical therapy and was skeptical that it would help. At age 70, I work out every day and did not want to be advised to cut back on my exercise routine. Impact understood my concerns and set me up with exactly the right therapist. My therapist, Brittni, understood my issues immediately and worked with me to add specific exercises to address my issue and helped me improve my exercise routine, not disrupt it. This has been a great experience and I highly recommend Impact Physical Therapy.

I had been having knee pain for several years and was recommended here by my wrist therapist. I worked with Alex and she was very knowledgeable, quickly pinpointed where my issue is. Over the course of 3 months, she guided me through different exercises to help address the underlying issues. Now I can squat or play tennis, and my knee would no longer be in pain for the next few days. Other staff such as Nick are also super friendly and helpful to guide me through the exercises.

I personally have been a patient at Impact for several years, on and off, due to various injuries. Both providers and staff are knowledgeable, kind, patient, and flexible with their time and attention. I have always received comprehensive care that is well thought out, personal, and easy to follow. I have been to other PT clinics in the Chicago area and Impact is the best!

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.

I’ve seen both Shannon and Kristen at Impact and worked with the other practitioners there during my exercises. It’s an extremely friendly environment and they’re very understanding about what you can and can’t do depending on your injury/pain. They give you different exercises to try so it doesn’t get too repetitive, and the massage/body work portion of the appointment is really nice. I’ve never seen a physical therapist that worked so much on me - helping me stretch, pushing joints into place, etc, than at Impact. Often times I would go and they would maybe massage for 5 minutes before sending me to do exercises. I absolutely recommend Impact!!

I highly recommend Impact Physical Therapy. I have been treated for several different issues at Impact, including knee, hip, hamstring and shoulder. Impact is a great PT place for athletes and active people--I am a highly active person in my late 20s, and the Impact South Loop physical therapists have all been supportive in helping me reach my ideal level of physical activity; when I told them I wanted to mitigate my pain enough to be able to run, they continually worked with me to reach that goal and never suggested that I give it up.I have worked predominately with Liz Yearly, who is an incredibly knowledgeable and skilled physical therapist. Liz is proficient in a variety of techniques and draws on these to create an individualized treatment plan. The South Loop physical therapists have a great team dynamic--they will consult with each other on your case to get each others' opinion and draw on each other's strengths to create a strong treatment plan for you.All the staff members at Impact South Loop are friendly, personable and professional. Questions about insurance or scheduling are always responded to promptly. The location has a friendly, communal atmosphere that makes physical therapy an enjoyable experience.

Came here seeking treatment for long-term, nagging hamstring pain that had not been fixed by a variety of treatments tried by a previous doc and a previous PT. Kara Mathys re-assessed me, ran me through some great strengthening exercises and localized treatment (dry needling and scraping), and when that didn't work, kept at it to figure out the problem was in my back, not at the site. She stretched me out to improve back mobility, and I'm finally healed. Thoughtful approach, great attitude, listens well, fun to work with. Thanks, Kara!

I love Impact Physical Therapy. This is my second visit to this facility and both times I have had Shayne as my therapist. Shayne is great - no she is fantastic. I had a total knee replacement in January and I was able to recover quickly because I did presurgery therapy with her. I am now back with a dislocated shoulder and am feeling better with each sessionBe sure to check this place out. They have great equipment and everyone is extremely professional
