“Metro Spine was highly recommended to me by my primary physician when I asked him for the best available Physical Therapy in Chicago. Only in my late 20s, I began finding it painful to walk (and impossible to run). I had already visited several PTs looking for help and was told that my body was shot from college athletics and the answer was to give up being physically active. Fortunately, my experience with Jocelyn was COMPLETELY different. She was able to accurately diagnose the cause of the pain in our very first session and took my recovery as a personal challenge, designing a therapy program that was completely tailored to me. Not only did she get me walking again without pain (which I had been told by other offices was impossible- guess not) , but I’m back into Cross-Fit workouts, Triathlons, and Team Sports. Amazing.
Also I got to know the entire office staff along the way and cannot say enough good things about the entire team. The fun office banter between staff and supportive environment made for a positive experience during recovery. I highly recommend Metro!”
“Can’t say enough about this place. They rock! I had some issues with my shoulder and Jocelyn (PT) was a lot of help. Very patient, knowledgeable and made what could have been a grueling experience enjoyable. I actually looked forward to my visits. I would highly recommend Metro!”
"I did a twisting motion while picking up a giant server in an enclosed space, so next thing I knew, my L5/S1 disc is protruding and touching one of my nerve roots. Furthermore, I had scheduled knee surgery for my ACL soon after that incident, so I went in with a double whammy. Matt takes his time to understand the pain you're experiencing, and his treatment is backed by modern science. My knee was up and better than ever before after a couple of months of therapy.
Unfortunately, my back is extremely stubborn, and after I mentioned to him that I felt my treatment had plateaued, he suggested seeking a second opinion in the form of an orthopedic specialist. I was impressed that he did not wish to further waste my time and squeeze me and my insurance for more money.
Overall, the staff are very pleasant - from the receptionist, to the PT, even the temporary ones that come in when Matt is out. They might not be able to fix every problem you have, but they'll try their best, which is all you can ask for."

"Thanks to Matt at Metro Spine & Sports my back is 100% and I am able to go about doing my daily routine pain free. Every session I had was informative, comfortable, helpful, and overall got me back to a healthy place. Rachel (she probably answered your call or booked your appointment) is the nicest gal you’ll ever meet and is extremely helpful as well-I will most likely pop in just to say hi because they are that great-yay team!"

"These guys are the best I've ever been to. I've seen lots of physical therapists over the last 20 years and Keith and Jocelyn are the best I've ever seen. These guys are different than your typical harpster wheel physical therapists that just give you exercises to do and then just count and stare.
They are both really good at diagnosing the issue and creating a treatment plan. Keith did a great job of adapting the same exercises everyone gave me for my condition so that they actually worked. Jocelyn has really good attention to detail that also helped speed my recovery.
I've never written a yelp review before but these guys really deserve 5 stars. They're in it for all the right reasons. It can get a little busy at times but that's only because they're so good, and they can get more done in 30 mins than many PTs can in weeks. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed."
"My mind believes that I am strong and athletic, my body vehemently disagrees; The result is frequent trips for Physical therapy. I have been to quite a few places in Chicago and can hence say with a great deal of (knowledge/experience) that Keith at Metro is hands down the best in the business. If you ever find the need to search for PT, 1) Don't ignore what your body is trying to tell you, if "you don't have time" make time! 2) Look no further than Keith at metro, as he is both knowledgeable and very good at what he does."
