New Life Physical Therapy is excited to welcome physical therapist Joe Schilz who is now practicing in our Portage clinic. He earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2018 and his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology degree in 2014, both from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. A Wisconsin native, Joe has practiced physical therapy in both the orthopedic/sports setting in the suburbs of Minneapolis, MN and in the home health setting in Madison, WI. He has a particular interest in sports-related rehabilitation, but enjoys working with people of all ages and abilities. Joe is a certified dry needling provider and also enjoys using a combination of manual techniques and functional activities to achieve optimal movement.
What Joe likes most about being a physical therapist: “The best part of my job is truly building relationships with each of my patients so that I’m better able to get them moving how they want to be. I enjoy engaging with each person during their sessions to help make the experience as valuable to them as I can. Being able to help guide a patient to success and seeing that progress materialize is a rewarding part of being a PT.”
Outside of work Joe enjoys spending time with his fiancé Samantha, their black lab-mix Zoey, or with friends and family. You will likely find him hiking, camping, hunting, attending concerts, or checking out local eateries and breweries. He is an avid sports fan and lives for Green Bay Packers game day.
Just a reminder, you can access physical therapy services directly in the state of Wisconsin. If your insurance requires a referral, we will work with them on your behalf to obtain one. Choosing PT first has been proven to result in quicker resolution of musculoskeletal aches and pain and overall lower cost of care. Your expert Physical Therapist is trained to refer you on to the right medical provider if you are not appropriate for physical therapy or they feel imaging or other tests are needed.
You do not have to waste time and money on unnecessary doctor visits and tests.
You are able to see our physical therapists directly with no referral required!
You do not have to miss out on doing the things you want, need, or love to do because of pain or limitations in physical performance.
