Monica’s Story

On December 2022, I fell and hurt my ankle, foot and knee. I had a surgery on my ankle on February 2023. I started physical therapy late April in Illinois where I reside most of the time. For the longest time, I was very depressed and frustrated because I was always in a lot of pain and I couldn’t see a light at the end of the tunnel. Knowing that I was going to spend the summer at our family place in Westfield, I started to look around for a place where I could continue my physical therapy.

After reading the wonderful customers’ reviews at NewLife Physical Therapy in Portage, I decided to schedule my therapies there. Since day 1, I was very pleased with the service. I have been to several PT places and by far NewLife has been the most beneficial one ever for my ankle, foot and knee problems; I have received the best therapy ever!!!

NewLife has professional, very knowledgeable, friendly, caring, polite staff and a clean, organized and calm environment. Joe Schilz was my one-on-one therapist. Joe is kind, caring, focused, very professional and attentive therapist. He works with you to identify issues and prescribes the best physical therapy treatment for your needs and abilities. He gives you clear and great explanation of treatment and help you with pinpointing problem areas as well as exercises to overcome issues. Since I started to see him, my ankle, foot and knee improved each visit. Joe loves what he does and it definitely shows! Love my therapist and I am going to miss him!!!
