Central Illinois Physical Therapy
18 W Harrison St
Sullivan, IL 61951
We all take for granted the amazing things our bodies can do. But did you know that your muscles have a greater combination of strength and flexibility than any metal? That your skeleton is unmatched in its ability to withstand the tons of pounding you give it each day just by walking? Your body is a remark-able piece of work. But like all machines, it occasionally breaks down. The cause may be a work-related accident, a rear-end collision, or just long-term wear and tear.
But when lower back pain robs you of sleep, or your wrists hurt from years of typing, it's time to take the "machine" in for repair. That's when you need to see the people who understand how to get you running smoothly again: Central Illinois Physical Therapy.
Skilled Experienced Technicians.
Our owner, Richard Kruckeberg, is one of the most experienced physical therapists in the Mattoon-Charleston area, having started his practice back in 1978. He has the judgment and knowledge to design the best treatment plans and keep his patients on track for a full recovery.
Richard's skills don't just come from experience in practice; his postgraduate studies have been staggering. They include work injury prevention, hand injuries, visceral manipulation, orthopedic physical therapy, and spinal evaluation. Add to that his teaching for such institutions as the University of Illinois and Northwestern University, and you can see why he's considered the area's leading authoritv on orthopedics and injury rehabilitation.
The reason some physical therapy doesn't work is because it's not designed specifically for the patient. That's why at Central Illinois Physical Therapy, our philosophy is to locate the exact cause of your pain and determine a personalized, targeted treatment regimen designed for your body and your injury. Because no two patient injuries are the same.
Our scientific, precise diagnostic procedures also allow us to closely monitor your recovery, resulting in faster results. We know how to keep you motivated, and when to adjust your regimen to give optimum benefits. That's why our average length of treatment is only nine visits, allowing our patients to get back to their lives without pain.
When you're injured on the job, you're not just suffering. You're losing income, and possibly your ability to provide for your family. With our advanced technology and methods, we can diagnose a Workers' Comp injury quickly and get you on the road to recovery and back to work. Employers love us because we get their people back as quickly as possible while minimizing costs. It's a win-win situation.
Richard's training in injury control and prevention helps us teach both workers and employers how to prevent future injuries.
