I worked with Kristin of Impact PT to treat a case of plantar fasciitis which had been lingering for more than a month. Kristin was very professional and personable. She explained the physiology of the injury to me and details of the treatment. Although I am not completely healed yet, I am making good progress and feel that the treatment has helped.
00:40 27 Aug 21
I went in with very acute inflammation of the sciatic nerve. They worked wonders. Shannon and Kristin were great and really go me back on track.Thanks!
23:22 18 Aug 21
Looking for a great physical therapist. This is the place. They have specialists for every part of the body. You will recover stronger and healthier than you can imagine.
23:35 04 Aug 21
Everyone’s really friendly and supportive here! You really feel like they’re on your team and that they want to support your recovery through your successes and speed bumps. It feels more like hanging out with friends who are helping you with your physical therapy. They’re experts in what they do and any wait time is very minimal.
14:46 30 Jul 21
This place has helped me recover from an ankle injury. It’s both motivated me while in the clinic while also equipping me outside of the clinic with exercise recommendations. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for physical therapy in the south loop.
17:15 18 Jun 21
I have had a couple of running related injuries over the years. When I have gone in, they do a thorough assessment and get straight to work on making me function well quickly. They are professional, creative, results-oriented, and are about solving for the problem(s) at hand. Their staff is trained and supervised well and overall very pleasant. The rates are reasonable. They are always on time in seeing me. Overall, a very good value and I highly recommend Impact.
23:24 05 May 21
The best place for physical therapy. Clean environment. Professional, knowledgeable and friendly Staff. Lots of equipment to get you back to normal
23:10 27 Mar 21
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!!
15:18 03 Mar 21
Overall, my experience at Impact has been very positive. The therapists, including Shannon, Kristin and Liz, are all knowledgeable, professional and friendly. The assisting staff are also friendly and helpful. The South Loop site feels clean and safe with the Covid precautions they have in place. I would highly recommend their physical therapy services.
22:48 20 Jan 21
Best therapists in town– I have been seeing Liz for about five years for different injuries. I am an endurance athlete and it takes a village to keep doing what I love. I am happy that Liz and Impact Physical Therapy is part of my team.
20:36 12 Jan 21
My family and I have been treated by impact physical therapy for years. All of the therapist are good and attentive especially the therapist we usually see, Liz Yerly. She is knowledgeable and is open and flexible to try multiple treatments to address your needs. I have to travel to be treated by her. But I don’t mind because I have complete confidence in her ability to provide and suggest treatments to address my needs
13:47 12 Jan 21
I have had the opportunity to use Liz and most of the staff during my period of physical therapy and say they are the best. They are warm, friendly, attentive, professional and most of all interested in your needs and your thoughts concerning how the therapy is working for you. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
18:15 13 Nov 20
I love it here! I usually see Shannon, but everyone is very nice and helpful also. Especially Sue! I started therapy for a shoulder injury in late September/early October (can’t remember) and my shoulder pain and movement has gotten better since. I also get a great workout every time I go which I love. If you’re looking to start PT this is the place to be.
00:28 05 Oct 20
I’ve been coming to PT for all my injuries. They are awesome, always caring for the patients and everyone is so friendly.They are the best!
13:29 04 Oct 20
I have received fantastic care at Impact. I’ve seen Liz for years because she is amazing and always new things for me to try so that my body and I can work better as a team. She’s help me get back in my feet after injuries, maintain a healthy body, and I am confident that I have far fewer injuries because I do what she says. I don’t like going to doctors, but I love going to Impact. They take the time to get to know you and they want to help you meet your fitness goals.
17:14 03 Oct 20
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.
13:05 02 Oct 20
Shannon Antwerp is one of the best physical therapists in Chicago. She does amazing work with dry needling. Since starting physical therapy, I’ve experienced relief in my neck/shoulders/right arm all of which have been impacted by various accidents over the years. Thanks to Shannon and the folks at Impact Physical Therapy, I’m doing a lot better!
16:51 18 Jun 19
After helping me through 7 months of PT for a SLAP repair last year, I can’t recommend them highly enough. They are friendly, courteous, compassionate, and jam-packed full of knowledge and expertise.
00:01 03 May 19
My son is having a great experience rehabbing from a tennis injury at Impact. I am so thankful for the referral and will definitely recommend them to others. Kristen his therapist is very knowledgeable and engaging. She is THE Best!
21:26 04 Jan 19
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!
23:51 25 Sep 18
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
Before starting Physical Therapy at Impact Lakeview, I was in constant pain. My physical therapist Beth has done a great job of listening to my issues and providing treatment. With each week of therapy my pain levels have gone down and my quality of life has improved. Thank you!
16:12 13 Oct 21
First time with Impact PT for osteoarthritis pain mostly in my knees. Superb therapist, Eric Niwinski. Eric has an incredible demeanor – he’s what I call “natural friend.” He’s positive, extremely knowledgeable, understands my limitations, makes the sessions hard but also fun. He’s tough but gentle all at the same time. The place is always buzzing – every therapist is working with patients, sometimes more than one at a time, and no one is neglected or left waiting, ever. Tatiana, the receptionist/business ops person is fabulous. She’s smart as a whip, on point and efficient, super friendly, and has a great sense of humor. I really like the open environment. You can see all the other patients doing their exercises and it’s inspiring, really. The entire staff is very customer focused. It’s a welcoming atmosphere where you get to work with super qualified therapists and get better. Love it!
21:53 28 Sep 21
I started going to Impact a few weeks ago for physical therapy to treat my plantar fasciitis. I have been working with Lauren who is really great. I like the environment, everyone is really friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend this practice for anyone with physical therapy needs.
19:26 26 Aug 21
Beth, Eric and the team have been fantastic to work with. They are knowledgeable and fun – I always have a good time and leave feeling like I’m a bit better and have learned something new. I appreciate the Impact team and the work they’re doing to help me heal.
23:54 12 Aug 21
Great therapists and a wonderful environment. Lauren is especially good.
16:23 23 Jul 21
Eric is an amazing physical therapist and a great guy. I felt very comfortable with him from the start. I’ve been going to Impact 3 times a week since June of 2020. I hobbled in to Impact due to a painful heel spur. Although polite, Eric knows how to use constructive criticism, and he’s able to be stern to help me push myself. Eric is very hard working, and he caters to all of his patients. These days, I am feeling so much better, I had almost forgotten how nice it is to be able to walk pain free. My whole core is much stronger and I have lost weight. I was also able to avoid surgery to remove the heel spur, as an alternate method proved extremely helpful. I would very highly recommend Eric and Impact Physical Therapy for any and all physical therapy needs!
15:46 04 Jun 21
Paul Thomas has helped me recover from several injuries over the last decade, including a particularly rough one where I tore my fascia. He and the rest of the staff at Impact are knowledgeable, professional, and really nice people.
00:02 06 May 21
This is a comfortable (other than the exercises) and efficient place that has been helping me gain mobility. I respect the knowledge of my therapist and appreciate his motivation. It is a good place to get better.
14:41 13 Apr 21
They’ve been very good for me; I’m an older person, trying to maintain/improve strength and balance, and they push me gently but firmly in the right direction.
17:51 02 Apr 21
Physical therapist Eric Niwinski is great – he listens carefully to clients and is very knowledgeable. His goal is to get clients back to full health as soon as possible which is all one can ask for.
00:09 22 Mar 21
Paul Thomas is an exceptionally knowledgeable, experienced, warm, kind, Physical Therapist. Although he is one of the top in the field in Chicago, he is also extraordinarily humble. He makes you feel comfortable right away, and describes his assessment in ways you are able to understand. I have had PT my entire life, in many different countries, and Paul tis the best I have met! The rest of the team that works with Paul is also fantastic! You will be in the best hands if you schedule with Paul or others on his team!
13:16 11 Mar 21
This Iocation is very nice and all the staff are friendly and courteous. I’ve been seeing Paul, intermittently, for various physical therapy treatments for almost 8 years. I trust his expertise more than some doctors and will typically come to him for an evaluation before seeing a doctor. He also introduced me to dry needling and although it’s not always fun to receive as a patient, it works wonders and is worth it. I highly recommend Paul and Impact.
03:22 11 Mar 21

I trust his expertise more than some doctors and will typically come to him for an evaluation before seeing a doctor.

23:22 10 Feb 21
For the last 2 years I have received outstanding care and compassion from the staff at Impact Physical Therapy in Lakeview.Eric N. physical therapist has rehabbed both of my knee surgeries with meticulous care and knowledge of human anatomy and joint movement. Eric has a bedside manner most Doctors do not possess and always makes me smile in the midst of pain and hard work.Love this place and highly recommend it !!!
20:50 12 Jan 21
The best staff in the city. Very knowledgeable, conscientious and professional. Paul is a leader in the field.
14:08 12 Jan 21
The Best PT ever. Paul is brilliant and can identify pain before you tell him where it is. I’ve been at Impact since 2011. Brilliant, caring, and seasoned professionals are here

Eric is awesome! He helped alleviate some pretty severe lower back pain and helped me get stronger. 100% recommend this place.
18:21 05 Oct 20
I went to Impact Physical Therapy to rehab after foot surgery (Achilles). They were very professional, knowledgeable, and made me feel very comfortable. I liked the one-on-one nature of the treatment. The therapy was a success as I was back to playing tennis at full strength afterwards. Would DEFINITELY recommend them, and plan on consulting with them again for any future injury.
13:23 02 Oct 20
Paul Thomas is a miracle worker. I’ve run several Ultra Marathons (57 miles, 64 miles and 100 miles distances) and he puts me all back together. The guy is a wizard in dry needling. Incredibly smart and gracious. This is the person to go to if you are an athlete that is looking for sound views on what is going on with your body. He works in the Lakeview location on Lincoln and Paulina.
13:17 02 Oct 20
Paul and the other physical therapists at Impact Physical Therapy Lakeview are knowledgeable, skilled therapists that deliver care effectively and safely. I have been treated by the team for various conditions, including cervical spine, back, hip and knee surgery . I have always left the clinic feeling better! They have helped me get back to activities I love to do. I highly recommend Impact Phisical Therapy Lakeview!
21:21 05 Aug 20
Paul Thomas is professional, highly educated and most importantly made me feel hopeful that my condition would improve with therapy, while being very realistic about expectations. I had seen other PT providers for the same issue and the difference in terms of approach, knowledge of the condition and impact of therapy were vastly different. I would highly recommend Paul Thomas.
15:54 12 Jun 20
I’ve been seeing Lauren for a little over a year now. First to prep for upcoming hip surgery and to relieve the pain associated with it. Then, after the surgery, I kept up with Lauren to rebuild my strength and get back to the activities I love doing. Lauren has gone above and beyond for me. I am back to running and jumping and moving and grooving like I wasn’t sure I would be able to! I love her kindness, patience, attentiveness, and client-oriented mindset. I 100% recommend her service services to anyone in need of a professional PT!
11:45 30 May 19
I was brought to impact physical therapy after working with traditional physical therapists at Rush. I am an athlete and some of the techniques that are traditionally used are too gentle for somebody with athletic abilities. My therapist it is kind, but she really works the muscles that need to be worked and for the first time I feel like there is a change in my back. If you are looking for a physical therapy experience where you are going to get results, I would recommend coming here. I will probably need one more surgery and I have already decided that I will do my post surgical recovery work at impact. They are the right combination of tough and caring.
15:59 06 May 19
I’ve had a really good experience with Lauren – she does a great job of explaining the science behind the techniques we used, and I’ve definitely improved.
19:09 07 Feb 19
Long overdue review. Lauren worked with me for 2 months last fall to help resolve my tennis elbow pain. She provided excellent care including deep tissue release, scraping, and ultrasound, as well as exercises to strengthen the muscles around the joint. Appointments are easy to schedule with desk staff, facilities are clean and well-maintained, and overall they provide a very comfortable environment for PT.
05:00 22 Jan 19
My husband recommended his physical therapist Lauren and I am happy he did. I’ve been in 3 times (in one week b/c my ankle sprain has been pretty painful) and I already feel so much better!! Don’t delay like I did, just call and they’ll pencil you in!!
16:09 08 Jan 19
Shannon and the team at Impact Physical Therapy are knowledgeable and trustworthy. Shannon personalized a treatment plan that aligned with my goals for recovery and helped me regain strength. I would recommend her and the impact team to anyone!
If you want to feel better and learn about why you are experiencing the problems you are. Look no further. The facility is very clean, open spaced, safe and is staffed by a crew that gets to the bottom of your problem. Highly recommended!
20:50 10 Oct 21
In the short time I have been going to Impact Physical Therapy, I can feel a big difference. Leo has worked with me to identify my issues and prescribe the best physical therapy for my needs. I am very pleased with the entire staff here. They are knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend Impact Physical Therapy in Norridge, IL.

Right in my backyard, there is a physical therapy center, which has provided me with respite from chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis, as well as seasonal injuries, like “falling on both knees”. I only need to drive a few blocks, to receive help. Having RA does not end; RA needs frequent sessions of care, whether weeks or months. This is the place that provides support and care in tolerating a chronic illness. I’m grateful for the long-term care provided by Impact Therapy, given by Leo, Rachel, Magda, and Trish.
22:33 20 Aug 21
Everybody at Impact Physical Therapy is understanding and tries to do the best they can to help each patient with their different issues. Leo and everybody I came in contact with, GREAT! I’ tried several physical therapy places , but none were as good as Impact.
23:27 09 Jul 21
From the moment I walked in the kindness and willingness to help was obvious. The therapist know what they are doing and do it to perfection with one goal to get you back on your feet. I highly recommend impact therapy in Norridge!
23:53 13 Jun 21
Great service and therapy by Leo Taliganis. Very knowledgeable and dependable for correcting the problem and getting you on your feet again. Always professional and there for his clients. Thanks!
02:39 28 Feb 21
Very knowledgeable, professional, and caring. Would recommend to anyone.
23:23 27 Jan 21
Excellent service and great professionals. Strongly recommend for phisical therapy and health care!
15:52 18 Jan 21
Friendly and very effective! Personalized care and attention! So glad I found them!

I haven’t been for therapy in a couple of years (that I thankful for) for. I started with Leo when he was at Athletico Therapy. He opened up Impact just in time when I needed some therapy for my back. The friendliest and the excellent therapy I received helped the pain melt away. So the conclusion is I would recommend Impact Therapy to anyone who want to feel better and release the pain.
21:50 02 Oct 20
I had a shoulder replacement surgery done a couple years ago and I went to Impact Physical Therapy. Everyone was very nice and Leo did a great job getting my arm stronger. I would highly recommend these guys.
19:52 02 Dec 19
I have Rachel as my therapist, and she is fantastic! so nice and pleasant and has been an excellent therapist so far. I requested this place with my attorney and doctor’s office and it was very quickly approved, and I’m very happy that I chose this place!😎Also I will add the place is very clean😄

01:39 03 Jul 19
I cannot thank Leo and the staff at Impact enough for their wonderful care during a most difficult time. Leo is very knowledgeable and shares information with you to help you understand what he is doing and why. The staff is always professional and friendly. I would highly recommend Impact Physical therapy.
13:04 20 Aug 18
Leo takes time, is very knowledgeable and explains everything thoroughly. He wants you to understand why you are feeling pain and how he is going to help you get rid of it. Very clean and updated offices. Staff very friendly. I recommend to anyone that is in need of physical therapy. He has helped me greatly with my 30 year old back injury. Excellent and exceptional.
06:07 17 Aug 18
If you’re injured or in any kind of pain this is the ONLY place to go! I had several car accidents and I saw several doctors, pain specialists and physical therapists. However, none of them helped me even half as much as Leo and his team did. Leo was the only one able to cure my pain and make my body work properly again. Additionally, he is very nice and super easy to talk to and work with. He is an extremely knowledge and gifted therapist who’s a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend this business even if you need to travel far for it. You’ll get the best service and treatment here.
13:52 12 Jul 18
From the first time you walk in you feel like home. Great , professional and friendly place. Leo Talaganis number 1Very professional, patients, he listens to you and work with you.I reccomend this place to all my friend and family.
09:01 13 Apr 18
Leo is a wonderful therapist! He makes sure you know what he’s doing, and explains what the therapy will help. He also demonstrates exercises to do at home, and makes sure you are doing them correctly before you leave! Leo is very professional and knowledgeableI couldn’t have made a better choice.
Impact Physical Therapy is a phenomenal world class physical therapy resource for the Western Suburbs. The Hinsdale location is very convenient, immaculate, spacious and atypical for a Physical Therapy office. Tim Rylander is the best at what he does (I get the sense he knows as much or more than some of the doctors out there).. I strongly recommend Impact for any physical Therapy needs.
05:43 19 Jun 21
an extensive search to find a p t office where the therapy would be given on an one on one basis. that is, where i would have the sole attention of the therapist for one full hour. at first thought, this might not seem difficult to find. but it is nearly impossible. i found impact six blocks from my house and they provide this exactly.
02:09 26 May 21
Extremely knowledgeable, caring and compassionate therapists who go above and beyond to understand patients’ concerns and medical issues. Super clean facility and friendly environment. I’ve mostly worked with William and Chris who have been amazing!!
14:09 10 Apr 21
Chris did an excellent job helping me through a recent injury. He demeanor, level of engagement and treatment plan were a lifesaver and helped me recover and get back to exercising. The entire team has a great level of camaraderie and made PT a very positive experience.
14:12 19 Feb 21
I have been going to Impact since 2019. They have great staff, great communication, comfortable atmosphere, and knowledgeable. For my mild injuries, I go for tune-ups and I am usually better in a couple of days. For larger injuries, I had a herniated disc where I had weakness in my left arm. After going consistently to Bill, my strength in my left arm is back, and no pain. I am so glad I didn’t have to go any further to get any kind of procedures done. They have great communications and recommendations for doctors. You will not be disappointed!
21:58 15 Feb 21
Kamila, Tim, Jimmy, Peggy & Dom are all fabulous. Jimmy went over all of the insurance information and made sure I understood what the process was. Both Tim & Kamila do a wonderful job going over the injury and explaining what needs to be done during and after your appointment. Dom and Peggy are always there to help with stretches and exercises.The equipment is continuously being wiped down and the facility is very well maintained.
01:23 05 Feb 21
I had several knee procedures, including a spacer and a TKR. The scar tissue buildup was significant. I chose Impact because of a prior very positive experience with Kamila. I worked primarily with Chris and was very impressed with his knowledge and work ethic. He has a great understanding of when and how to push you further to meet your goals. He and Kamila worked with me to progress far enough that I wouldn’t need a probable manipulation, eventually getting the ROM to 120 degrees, which seemed out of reach at the outset.I was also very impressed with the positive atmosphere and the camaraderie of the entire staff. The therapists and their support team work well together. I would recommend the Hinsdale location to anyone who is looking for a professional environment and a high quality team to help you reach your rehabilitation goals.
16:25 02 Feb 21
I have never really done PT before, but Chris made my experience awesome my first time. He made each session fun and personable. I went in there after having weeks and weeks of neck and back pain. Chris was able to pin point the problem and after my first session, I was doing 75% better. After my 3rd session I was problem free. Thank you Chris and Impact Physical Therapy. Also I went here during covid season, the facility is clean and faculty is very diligent about cleaning and wiping everything after every session. I felt safe and comfortable going here. It was not crowded and tons of distance between folks.
18:12 26 Jan 21
I’ve had therapy on various parts of my body at Impact by each of the PT’s on staff, and each one was knowledgeable , compasionate, and willing to educate me. I’ve tried other PT outlets, and they are the best!
03:26 12 Jan 21
The staff at Impact Physical Therapy is outstanding. I would recommend, and have recommended, them to all of my friends and family. Tim and Kamila are, quite simply, excellent physical therapists who go above and beyond to help get you back to top form. They are the best. Thank you!
20:55 11 Jan 21
Working with Kamila at Impact Physical therapy was a wonderful experience . Everyone knows what they are doing and works professionally to get the client on their way! Thank you so much!!!
20:20 11 Jan 21
As in the past my contact with Impact has been most helpful and enjoyable. During my therapy I looked forward to doing the physical activity, using the equipment, and enjoying the personal. Everyone was friendly, attentive to their client, respectful of privacy and patient. No insistence on activities that caused pain. My therapist was considerate of my needs and was informed and skilled as she help me to better physical health.Impact is a great place!
18:05 05 Oct 20
I came to Impact Physical Therapy in Hinsdale after working with a few other local physical therapists who not only didn’t help but made me re-injure myself by giving me bad advice and advising me to do exercises that are harmful for your back. I felt helpless. The other “physical therapists” pushed injections and pain medications from the beginning instead of taking the time to actually evaluate me and help me build up my strength to heal and prevent re-injury. Chris is very knowledgeable and extremely caring and calm. I cannot emphasize how important that demeanor is when you are in excruciating pain and desperate for help. Some people gave me life altering diagnoses saying I would be in pain forever and that I would never heal. Chris quickly dismissed this and gave me the confidence I needed to believe I could heal. After a few months I am back to myself again. I have the tools I need to continue to strengthen my body. I truly hope I never have to see Chris again but if I do I know where to find him.
21:21 04 Oct 20
I was referred by Dr. Ali, my neurologist to have physical therapy to improve my motor skills as I was diagnosed with early onset of PD. In addition, my orthopedic doctor, Dr. Ivy suggested for me to have phyiscal therapy as well. I was a little skeptical to do it since I have been going for PT for 3 years and did not make any difference in my movement. However this time, Dr. Ali said try IMPACT down the street, it’s private. They check coverage of your insurance. I made my appointment and presesented the referral of neuro and ortho doctors. I was assigned to Chris, my therapist. Chris interviewed me during the first meeting to assess my condition and went over treatment plan and activities. I told myself “this is different from my previous PT sessions at DuPage Medical Group.” The sessions were pretty much structured; warm up, activities using different equipment and stretching. My warm up turned out to be as important as the actual activity to address the tightness of my joints. Chris is cognizant of my safety as I work on the equipment. The facility is busy. Patients range from school age children, high schoolers and adults. The staff are warm and pleasant. Each has a patient to attend to. Equipments are sanitized after use. Over time, I have seen big improvement in my movement, balance and coordination. I have since talked about IMPACT with my friends who at some point in their life have had to go for physical therapy. I pray that my insurance benefits continue to cover PT with IMPACT. Going to IMPACT became a routine for me to get well. Thank you Chris and IMPACT.
11:21 04 Oct 20
I’ve been to impact for rotator cuff surgery on both shoulders back to back followed by current separated shoulder injury. They have a very well run clean physical therapy business. All the therapists are great and they have great interns helping with all of the exercises. I’ve only seen Tim and Kamilla who I like a lot but other therapists seem great because I’ve watched them work on other patients and it seems to me that they work hard. Anyway, it’s a great place
15:23 03 Oct 20
I have been going to Impact Physical Therapy on and off for over 2 years. As a triathlete, I appreciate that I have been able to schedule an appointment quickly with Tim or Jimmy. They have been able to evaluate and treat my injuries before they progressed and therefore, I haven’t had to miss much training. Both have incredible knowledge. They work out the problem (using Graston techniques, etc.) and provide me with exercises to do at home. My daughters have also benefited from Impact’s services, as well as many friends I have referred. I can’t say enough about their professionalism and determination to help heal all injuries.

I have been suffering with herniated disc for 30 years. I was trying to solve my problem with lots of specialist over 30 years. (orthopedists, chiropractors, physiotherapist). Nobody was able to help me. I found out what was wrong with my body 9 weeks ago for the first time. The attack 9 weeks ago was very painful. I felt like something wanted to tear my leg’s muscles. I couldn’t hold urine. I couldn’t dress up and take off cloths by myself. I was going through the hell on the earth. Years of asking for help without an answer made me distrustful. I wanted to go to see somebody but somebody who knows what to do. I decided I will go from physiotherapist to physiotherapist until I find the right one. I was ready to fly to California where my trainer lives, who is a physiotherapist as well.Impact in Hinsdale was the first one I asked for help. I came to office in good condition, but at the point I couldn’t help myself anymore. I couldn’t stretch muscles anymore by myself. I needed manual therapy. I received exactly what I needed. Chris H. saved my life. I hope I will never need him anymore. But if so, I will find him again.

My experience at impact was very positive. I truely believe my goals will be meant. At this point I would give them a 5 star rating and see no reason why this shouldn’t continue to be the norm.😀

There are not enough stars to rate my experience at Impact Physical Therapy in Hinsdale! The environment and atmosphere at Impact are so welcoming and comfortable as soon as you walk through the door! I was always treated with kindness and compassion by everyone in the office – even the therapists who were not directly working with me. My physical therapist, Dr. Tim Rylander, is a top expert in the field of concussion recovery and I was so fortunate to be able to work with him! HIs expertise, professionalism and genuine care for me as a patient were evident from very early in my treatment plan. His sessions were well planned out and challenged me in the needed areas. He worked with me and believed I would reach my goal of returning to the career I loved when many others thought it wasn’t possible! He was always so positive and encouraging! I know I would not be where I am today without him! Impact Physical Therapy in Hinsdale is truly a special place!

This is my second experience with physical therapy. My first experience was at one of the major physical therapy groups in the Chicago land area. I was recommended to a specific therapist Tim Rylander whom helped me successfully recover from a couple of sports injuries and I would highly recommend him. After struggling with my current injury, my trainer recommended that I meet with mpact Physical therapy due to his success with them. I had rememered Tim but I decided to give them a shot because they happened to be more conveniently located. When I walked in for my first appointment, I recognized Tim and can’t tell you how releved and happy I was to see him especially because he is the mansgima partner. Although my initial consultation was not with Tim but with another therapist, Chris Harter. I can’t tell you what a great experience I am having with Chris, the facility and the staff. Chris is a graduate of northwestern and embodies the sensitivity and touch anyone would want while recovering from any injury. The space is modern and inviting with tons of glass and the support staff are super friendly and helpful. It does not feel like a typical “medical” environment. Their unique recovery room offers some of the latest innovations for athletes and anyone looking for assisting with injury or sore muscle recovery. I would highly recommend both Tim and Chris and really any of the therapist at this facility.
00:49 07 Mar 19
Kamila @ Impact is very knowledgeable and friendly. I look forward to my visits in the new facility with state of the art equipment.
02:32 02 Mar 19
A great PT facility! Knowledgeable professionals who are there to help!
13:48 09 Aug 18
When my neurosurgeon suggested physical therapy instead of a fourth back surgery I was lucky enough to find Impact Physical Therapy. Their knowledge, professionalism, patient focus, communication skills, state of the art equipment and realistic goals far surpassed any other physical therapy company that I’ve used since my first surgery 15 years ago. I strongly recommend Impact Physical Therapy.
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.
22:45 07 May 21
In four sessions I have seen improvement in strength and balance.Exercises are explained carefully. There is a close watch on doing exercises correctly.jack Reuter knows when to motivate strongly and when to ease up.
23:08 09 Sep 21
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.
03:46 15 Mar 19
I’ve come here for a few injuries and my whole family does, too. Great experience everytime. Courtney is awesome- super knowledgeable, nice and caring. Can’t say enough good things. Highly recommend!
01:41 20 May 19
I did pre-surgery physical therapy here. It made recovery so much better than it would have been. Jack, my PT, was awesome! I highly recommend this team!
23:38 20 Jan 21
I would highly recommend Impact Physical Therapy. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. They work hard to get their clients back in shape with loads of encouragement along the way. The facility is very clean and they take all COVID precautions. Great location with easy parking. My therapist Courtney is awesome!
14:24 14 Oct 21
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.
16:56 12 Jan 21
The Therapists were outstanding. I specifically worked with Nicki and Courtney. Extremely knowledgeable and Professional. They facility was clean and sanitized after each use. Timely, personable and great results. Highly recommend this facility for rehab. I observed others being taken care of with the same professional care I was given. Five Stars to this group.
14:00 02 Oct 20
I was treated for back pain, I mpact therapy was my choise based on how close it was to me. I made an excellent choice with them they are very helpful . Nikole really did an excellent job guiding me through the whole sessions , she’s the best . This will be my choise if I need therapy again

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 😉♥️

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.
23:19 11 Mar 21
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.
22:57 23 Sep 21
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.

18:57 22 Aug 19
The staff at Impact Physical Therapy are friendly and courteous and really care Jack my therapist along with the staff monitor when you are doing your individual exercises to make sure you are doing them right. I definitely will recommend Impact Physical Therapy to my family and friends.
23:51 30 Jun 21
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.
00:01 03 Apr 19
Therapist Jack knows his stuff. He rehabbed my knees after replacement surgery, now he’ll fix my shoulder. Knees are doing very well. Friendly professional , and dedicated staff. Great place.
00:55 13 Jan 21
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!
14:11 12 Jan 21
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.
00:05 30 Jul 21
My PT experience had been amazing. Every employee I have come across had been fantastic
13:01 23 May 20
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!
03:55 10 Mar 19
I am progressing rapidly at Impact, every time I leave I feel ahead of my injury. Jack is professional and explains the efficacy of your therapy throughout your time. They keep it light hearted and always checkYour pain levels. I highly recommend this group. I could see the light at the end of the tunnel right away!
12:42 20 Nov 18
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!!
00:02 30 May 21
Ashley and the team work close to everyone. They are very friendly and the place is super clean. The whole team not only works very hard to help you recover but they care about you as a person.They hey been greatFrank
00:06 08 Oct 21
The staff there is amazing! They’re knowledgeable, experienced, and professional. Nicole was an excellent physical therapist to work with, and got me on the right track in no time.
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.
23:50 04 Oct 21
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.
02:10 30 Sep 21
My wife and I have been going to Impact for years, for various aches and pains and would recommend them highly.• I had problems with my feet for years.Fixed!• My wife had lower back issues, that other therapists couldn’t help with.Gone!• I developed tendinitis in my right arm.Fixed!• Neck pain and head aches.Gone!I would definitely recommend Impact to anyone who needs a physical therapist.Gretchen and her team are highly professional and genuinely interested in your full recovery.
18:14 19 Aug 21
Gretchen is awesome! She took her time listening to the history of my injury. She is very nice and skilled at her work.
21:53 18 Aug 21
I think they have a great team of physical therapists and I will certainly recommend them to any friends who are looking for one.
22:42 06 Aug 21
Great positive environment.Client focused,great communication and knowledge.
23:42 17 Jul 21
Fast diagnosis of the issues I was having, and treatment that brought immediate relief! I’m truly thankful for the amazing people at Impact Physical Therapy!
14:52 04 Jun 21
WOW!! This is no place for people who want to just go through the motions! Gretchen, Jordan, Tony, Kaylee, and the rest of the staff are AWESOME! 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!
12:08 03 May 21
Excellent experience. Highly recommended. The approach at Impact considers each clients specific issues to generate a plan. Their website features videos of all the recommended stretches to do at home and those are all included in the profile you create. It was all very easy and personalized.
18:48 02 Apr 21
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!
13:06 18 Feb 21
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.
21:52 23 Jan 21
All the staff are friendly, very concerned about my health. Always asking if I have any questions and how I am feeling. The atmosphere when I am doing the exercises is relaxed and reminds me of a happy family always laughing and smiling. Impact Physical Therapy offers the best therapy services I have ever used. I am happy and pleased to recommend Impact Physical Therapy services to friends and family. Thank you for the outstanding service – Judy Lubben
02:29 21 Jan 21
Gretchen is my PT therapist at Impact Physical Therapy is well educated and does a thorough evaluation to see what works best for your situation. She takes you step-by-step showing exactly what to do and how to do it. It is well worth the effort to make a phone call and get on the road to a better life.
18:47 20 Jan 21
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!!!
14:03 20 Jan 21
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!
14:05 19 Jan 21
Tony is an excellent therapist…..kind, knowledgeable, and motivated to do the best for his client and help the client work toward the best outcome. If needing PT again, I would definitely return to Impact and request Tony for my therapist.
04:15 11 Jan 21
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.
14:44 28 Oct 20
I loved this experience and was super comfortable the whole time. My jaw has drastically improved as well! I’ll for sure be coming back if I ever need therapy!
21:27 08 Sep 20
Gretchen Thompson has changed my life, her staff is being trained by one of the best PT’s in the Midwest.
13:21 25 Aug 20
Exceptional therapists and exceptional people. They are the real deal, and they sincerely care about what they are doing. Primary therapist is Gretchen and have also seen Danny.
18:38 30 Apr 20
for three separate (unrelated) injuries, the amazing physical therapists at Impact have helped me heal completely and get even stronger than before. I would highly recommend Impact to anyone! They are very knowledgable and take excellent care of their clients! I am very grateful for them!
11:40 26 Feb 20
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.
18:02 25 Sep 19
Gretchen, Dan and Trae are the best! They are so knowledgeable and solve all kinds of problems for the runners and dancer in my family!
21:48 06 May 19
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.
14:47 25 Apr 19
Hands down the best place in central Illinois to get therapy! The therapists are knowledgeable, thorough and personable.
00:01 08 Feb 19
When walk in the door you get a smile and good morning they call by name just like your a part of the family. The therapist Dan Trey and Gretchen are the best. I’m glad I chose Impact for my therapy
17:48 07 Dec 18
This place means business! Very friendly, and attentive staff using a variety of techniques tailored to individual needs. Very effective methods. Just follow the instructions, and do your homework exercises. I highly recommend this place because of the speed with which they were able to fit me in, and start my recovery process.
03:12 13 Nov 18
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.
The staff at Impact are welcoming and show a genuine concern for your recovery. The space is large and tables and equipment are spread out with plenty of room. I have had a great experience with Tammy and her staff, I would recommend Impact to anyone.
01:13 08 Oct 21
I am extremely pleased with Impact Physical Therapy. Kailey is an excellent therapist and very knowledgeable. The entire staff is very nice. I highly recommend Impact Physical Therapy.
23:00 18 Aug 21
Kailey Becker is wonderful. This is a very professional and competent PT service provider.
21:44 14 Jul 21
Recently I completed my rehab for total knee replacement surgery. I went to Impact Physical Therapy in Orland Park on a strong recommendation from a friend. My therapist, Bob, did a great job of coaching me through all the exercises needed to regain flexibility and strength. He carefully documented my progress and was a continual source of encouragement! I would highly recommend him as a physical therapist for anyone facing knee surgery. Lisa, the very cordial and welcoming administrator at the front desk, always coordinated my visits to fit my schedule.
15:54 23 Jun 21
On-time appointments, clean facility and friendly staff. Kailey is the best. She made my athlete very comfortable and she was very knowledgeable about what was going on with his body. HE has started to feel the improvement in his pain level and comfort of movement after just two treatments. He should be back at it on the soccer pitch and baseball field in no time. Thanks Impact!
01:18 07 May 21
Impact is exceptional. I have had multiple physical therapy sessions over the past several years, including 3 different sets in the past year for different issues. The other places did not compare to the level of care that I have recieved at Impact. They care about the patient, target each session and departing recommendations based on how the patient is doing that day, not just overall. Impact includes substantial hands-on therapy – I have never experienced that. The other physical therapy providers I used recently and in the past barely used hands-on assistance. I just completed my 4th session out of 12 and I have improved already. I am so thankful for their expertise and genuine care for my progress. Bob is my therapist and he’s fantastic.
02:20 01 May 21
Tammy and Bob are first class physical therapists. I felt like I knew them for years even though it was only weeks. That’s how special they are. They will help you on a path to recovery while feeling like you are at home with friends. I would highly recommend both of them to anyone looking for physical therapy.
12:31 27 Apr 21
I’ve had back and IT band issues for quite some time. I had PT at another location without much relief. I started PT at Impact of Orland Park a few weeks ago and I’m so impressed with Tammy Stack. She is extremely knowledgeable with her profession. She listens to everything I tell her and is treating my symptoms in ways the other location did not. I’m confident my issues will be resolved soon. I highly recommended Impact Physical Therapy of Orland Park.
17:38 24 Jan 21
I went to Impact in mid March 2020 to rehab from a meniscus knee surgery. The staff was professional, patient, and knowledgeable. I’m a very active person and they took the time to make sure they were crystal clear of my goals. Bob Griffin is the lead PT at Impact as he also manages this location. I can’t speak highly enough of the job Bob & his staff did as my knee is fully recovered thanks to Impact. They also provided me with the tools to remain healthy well after my rehab ended. In addition, I had rotator surgery approx. 10 years ago & that was when I was introduced to Bob. That was a very challenging & long rehab and I’m thrilled to report that 10 years later my surgical shoulder remains stronger than my non surgical shoulder. The common denominator on both very successful recoveries is Bob Griffin. If you want the absolute best PT with no shortcuts, go to Impact Physical Therapy in Orland Park, IL.
00:07 15 Jan 21
I can’t say enough about Tammy and the entire Impact Physical Therapy Team!I have known and been treated by Tammyfor years. Her knowledge and expertise in helping heal a broken body is surely appreciated by all who have had the good fortune of being under her care. In addition to her healing hands and amazing diagnostic abilities, Tammy is able to calm the anxiety which often plagues those in pain. Her positive attitude can be contagious and can be integral in healing. I will be having a hip replacement soon and knowing that I can count on Tammy with my post surgical therapy gives me peace of mind.I feel that the Orland location is more like family. From Lisa at the front desk and Bob who has also helped me in my quest to take care of this aging body, there is always a warm welcome and a feeling that Impact Physical Therapy truly cares about each and everyone who chooses them in their journey back to health.
