Complimentary Screening Exam


Are you experiencing aches and pains, a recent injury, or have an injury that is not getting better? Our experienced team at Northern Rehab can help you get back to work and your activities. Our physical therapists will provide a complimentary 30-minute assessment upon request to determine if physical therapy would be appropriate to treat your condition. 

During the exam, a licensed physical therapist will meet with you to discuss your condition, evaluate your symptoms, and provide a brief assessment of your physical and functional abilities. Following the exam, your physical therapist will provide advice on a recommended course of treatment. Whether you need home exercises, physical therapy, or a consultation with another health care provider, our experienced and caring staff will help guide you in the right direction.

Northern Rehab's mission is to provide high quality, cost-effective treatment, education, and wellness services for our clients and community. A complimentary assessment requires an appointment; please call us at 815.756.8524 to schedule a convenient time for you at any of our 4 locations in DeKalb, Genoa or Rochelle.

Patients sent to Northern Rehab with a referral from a physician are not eligible for the free, complimentary assessment, but instead, will receive the standard, comprehensive initial evaluation.

Your Right to Choose

The decision of where you go to receive treatment is
yours. If you have a specific therapist or practice you
would like to go to, you should let your doctor or
insurance company know this. Not all physical
therapists or practices are the same and the choice
of your provider is yours.
