New Kalamazoo Physical Therapy Clinic Opening August 12

New Kalamazoo Physical Therapy Clinic Opening August 12

Back when we announced our partnership with Ivy Rehab, we were excited for the many opportunities that we’d have to grow and help even more people in the future. We’re pleased to share that we’re working with Ivy Rehab to bring the brand to Kalamazoo, with an opening date of August 12, 2019.

The new clinic will be located in Texas Corners at 7119 West Q Avenue, Kalamazoo.

“As Regional Director for the Ivy Rehab Network of clinics in West Michigan and one of the founding partners of Northern Physical Therapy, I’m so excited to expand our services to the Kalamazoo area,” said Gina Otterbein, Regional Director. “This clinic joins Northern Physical Therapy and Generation Care in the Ivy Rehab Network of clinics in West Michigan but this one is really special as it is the first named Ivy Rehab.”

The clinic will treat people of all ages, who are suffering from any kind of pain, neurological disorder, or post-surgery recovery and joint replacement. In addition, they are sports rehabilitation experts who will work with student and adult athletes on sprains, strains, localized pain, and injuries.

“As we began to establish relationships with local healthcare providers and business owners, we felt we could make an impact and positively contribute to the Texas Corners community,” explains Ed Orloff, Clinic Director and Physical Therapist. “I am looking forward to serving my hometown of Kalamazoo again, as I did for a number of years prior to joining the Ivy Rehab team.”

Physical Therapy is Changing Lives with Direct Access

Physical Therapy is Changing Lives with Direct Access

If you listen to your body it will often tell you exactly what it needs. Those back aches that you get after a long night’s sleep, or the shin pain you get every time you run – that’s your body’s way of telling you that something isn’t right. A quick and permanent fix would be ideal, but sometimes going to the doctor can be costly, and taking pain relievers every time the issue flares up isn’t ideal either.

When the state of Michigan passed the direct access law in 2015 it changed our business immensely. For the first time patients could decide how they wanted to handle their healthcare and could make the decision to utilize physical therapy with, or without, a referral. We were the last state in the country to allow direct access, and it was undoubtedly a huge step forward.

We see a number of direct access patients every day and the results speak for themselves. In these cases, we can bill your insurance or you can pay out of pocket. And the great thing is that many issues can be resolved in just a few visits (sometimes it only takes one visit.) Each of the testimonials featured below are from patients who came to us directly. We’re happy to share their success stories.

“I’ve always had issues with my back and had given up on healing my herniated disc. David worked with me and taught me exercises that gave me immediate relief for my back pain. He has not only healed my back, but has allowed me to do so much more than I ever thought possible. To sum up my experience with physical therapy in one word: life-changing.” – Kylee M., Cedar Springs Patient

“I can’t thank the Northern staff enough for going above & beyond my expectations. Several times their ability to be flexible & accommodate my schedule when necessary has been an absolute life saver. Without the knowledge & expertise to create a combination of treatments, I would not have the ability to return to my active lifestyle as quickly as I have.” – Kathy M., Comstock Park Patient

“Within just 2 weeks of physical therapy, my daughter’s pain is nearly gone. The staff there are my daughter’s favorite. Everyone is very positive and encouraging.” Wayland Patient

Physical Therapy is Changing Lives with Direct Access“I had a wonderful and productive experience! My physical therapist was a miracle worker. I had wrist pain which was preventing me from partaking in my consistent yoga practice. The PT identified the wrist pain as related to an issue with my neck. He gave me simple and direct instructions for recovery exercises. After following his recommended treatment plan my wrist healed quickly and I was back on the yoga mat without ever having set foot in a medical doctor’s office. I am so grateful and will definitely be back if I need help in the future.” – Tessa K., Lowell Patient

“I definitely recommend Northern Physical Therapy! The people that I worked with and the staff were amazing. They really took their time with me and had a way of explaining things so I always understood what was happening. They are all great and you’ll definitely be in good hands. I don’t have one bad thing to say, I give them 5 stars. Thank you Northern!” Luisa S., Cedar Springs Patient
