Physical therapy company opens new location
A physical therapy company has opened its 15th location in West Michigan.
Ivy Rehab Network opened a an Ivy Rehab Physical Therapy facility last month in Texas Township, southwest of Kalamazoo, at 7119 West Q Ave.
The company invested $200,000 to establish the 1,800-square-foot clinic, which includes an integrated waiting room, private treatment rooms and a private office area. Chicago-based Zed Architects helped with the upgrades.
The clinic will treat people of all ages who are suffering from any kind of pain, neurological disorder, post-surgery recovery or joint replacement. This includes students and adult athletes with sprains, strains, localized pain and injuries.
The clinic is now scheduling patients and can offer appointments within 24 hours, with or without a prescription from a doctor.
It will have early morning and evening hours and accept most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid.
The facility employs two people but that could increase as the number of patients increases.
“As we began to establish relationships with local health care providers and business owners, we felt we could make an impact and positively contribute to the Texas Corners community,” said Ed Orloff, the clinic’s director and physical therapist.
Orloff has a doctorate in physical therapy from Grand Valley State University and an advanced degree in mechanical diagnosis and therapy of the extremities and spine from the University of Otago.
Orloff has also overseen clinical education and mentoring for the McKenzie Institute, USA.
He was named the recipient of the 2018 Grand Valley State University Distinguished Physical Therapy Alumni Award.
Ivy Rehab Network also owns Northern Physical Therapy and Generation Care in West Michigan.
