What Our Patients Are Saying

  • I have gone to other therapists in the past and while they are very nice I didn't get the results that I have gotten with Activa. Not to mention that they are extremely nice. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

    Kathi B.

  • They have great therapists providing one-on-one guidance, very good techniques and exercise regimen. The entire team is always so welcoming, humble and empathetic!! They have great, modern equipment and accessories to support the healing treatments.

    Ronti R.

  • Activa is the best physical therapy out-patient clinic in the western suburbs. I was a recent patient after a total knee replacement- I received state of the art care & one on one attention during every appointment.

    • Pain Relief

      Reducing pain, swelling, and inflammation are common goals in this phase of recovery. Injury protection, elevation, appropriate medications, compression, and patient education are important.

    • Humpal Physical Therapy
    • Introduce Movement

      Pain-free passive, manual therapy, active range of motion, and cardiorespiratory exercises, are indicated here. Education about pain and a positive attitude may help.

    • Strengthening

      Progressive loading of healing soft tissues, the reintroduction of low-stress neuromuscular reeducation, balance training, and basic functional activities are part of this rehabilitation phase.

    • Functional Retraining

      Progressing strengthening exercises, improving flexibility, and advanced balance exercises are part of phase 4. Resuming functional movement (e.g. sports movements) occurs in this phase.

    • Humpal Physical Therapy
    • Recovery & Prevention

      Functional movements are progressed, a controlled re-introduction to sports or challenging environments is initiated. Continued strengthening, flexibility, balance, endurance, and goal-specific training occurs during this phase. Education and future injury prevention are discussed.
