IBJI is proud to announce its Libertyville rehabilitation clinic will be moving from 716 Florsheim Drive to a nearby, newly renovated building at 724 Florsheim Drive. The new facility will be open and see patients as of Thursday, July 2, 2015.
The new clinic will be significantly larger, providing more equipment and more flexible appointment scheduling. In addition, the expansion will give therapists access to a broader array of resources and dynamic exercises, enabling them to treat a much wider range of conditions.
New, on-site equipment will include a Shuttle Recovery machine, providing a variety of activities from post-surgical to aggressive plyometric jumping for a diverse range of patients. Also available will be new elliptical machines and the latest Scifit equipment like SciFit Pro Upper Body and Scifit Upright Bikes, all making it easy for people of all ages, abilities and conditions to get moving, stay motivated and see results. IBJI's existing state-of the-art equipment, like the Proprio 5000 machine, which offers training for many upper and lower extremity diagnoses, will be moved to the new clinic. An added exercise area, separate from the main treatment room, will provide more space and a better overall patient experience.
In addition to the current Libertyville clinic services such as physical therapy, sports medicine and performing arts rehab, occupational therapy services will also be available on-site by late Summer/early Fall 2015. IBJI occupational therapists specialize in the rehabilitation of the hand and upper extremity, restoring function for full participation in daily activities.
“Providing the best therapists, treatment programs, equipment, services and environment to patients from the start makes the overall rehabilitation process much more efficient and effective,” explains Andre Blom, IBJI’s Director of Rehabilitation, “Our new Libertyville clinic allows us to provide our patients with the best possible experience and, ultimately, provide better outcomes.”
