Advanced care...For maximum results. Our experienced rehabilitation teams have the combined goal of working with each resident to return to their highest functional level of independence. We are committed to providing quality services that enhance the entire rehabilitation experience.
Care that offers you more.
It's more than just therapy, because we do more than just rehabilitate injuries. Treatment is based on a partnership—between you and your therapist, between leading-edge technology and traditional, hands-on care. Our rehabilitation services will maximize your body's ability to heal, move, and do all the things you need it to do. Whether you need intensive rehabilitation after an auto accident, illness, surgery, or a quick recovery from a strain, you'll find maximum treatment here. In short, we commit ourselves to improving your quality of life and your functional recovery.
Quick recovery—right from the start.
Our treatment goes beyond the scope of your specific injury. We work to achieve your goals - whether it's returning to your job, getting back on the playing field, or simply performing daily activities without pain. Armed with this knowledge and a customized rehabilitation plan, we work with you every step of the way. It's this combination of clinical expertise and personalized care that achieves much greater results for our patients. At Cottage Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine, you can also be assured that your care will be provided by quality, trained personnel.
The experience and training you need.
Here, you get powerful rehabilitation backed by over 125 years of combined therapy experience. Our team of rehabilitation specialists has specialized training in sports medicine, spinal conditions, work conditioning, and orthopedic care. Some of our employees have taught therapy at the university level, worked with professional athletes, and others have held positions in a variety of therapy settings, including hospitals, nursing homes, home health, and outpatient clinics.
Our treatments go way beyond traditional heat and ice packs. We start with hands-on care to establish correct posture and body mechanics, and combine it with treatment methods that work with, not against, the natural functions of your body to relieve pain and promote healing. You’ll find treatment techniques for:
- Shoulder and Rotator Cuff Injuries
- Back and Neck Pain
- Work Related Injuries
- Sports Related Injuries
- Post-surgical Rehabilitation
- Joint Replacement
- Spinal Conditions
- Acute & Chronic Tendonitis
- Auto Accident Injuries
- Hip, knee and ankle pain

Maximum convenience… Maximum value
Because pain doesn’t wait for a convenient time, we typically see patients within 24 hours of the call to schedule an initial visit. Plus, we offer early morning, lunchtime and evening treatments by appointment. Each location is conveniently located with parking right outside the door, so you don’t have to walk too far. As with all health care costs, it can be difficult to fit the expenses involved with therapy treatment into your family’s budget. That’s why we accept most major insurance and HMO/PPO plans, Medicare, Illinois Department of Public Aid, and Workers Compensation, and we will even help file all the necessary paperwork. We also offer flexible payment plans for the portion not covered by insurance or for uninsured patients.
Specialized Programs to Serve You Better
WorkRiteTM helps injured workers get back on the job…quickly and safely.
The traditional rehabilitation techniques of acute therapy that have progressed into work hardening programs have proven over time to be costly and largely ineffective with no measured or appropriate outcomes. Historically, there have not been programs designed to focus on minimizing expenditures for employers while at the same time improving the outcomes or workers compensation claims. This is exactly the focus of the WorkRiteTM program at Cottage Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine. This program includes:
- Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCEs)
- Comprehensive Work Conditioning
- Ergonomic Evaluations
- Lifting Education
- Weekly Communication With Physicians and Employers
- Consultation Services for Injury Screens, Job Analysis, Prevention Programs, and Post Offer Testing.
PlayRiteTM enhances your performance…on the playing field, the golf course, or in everyday life.
Today therapy is more than just a way to put your body back together after illness, injury, or surgery. The same principles and techniques that help the body heal and strengthen can also be employed to improve your performance in sporting activities. This is the primary goal of our PlayRiteTM program. We have developed a program to help high school and college athletes improve on-field performance, with increased consistency in their game and fewer injuries. We offer customized programs to increase performance in a wide variety of athletic activities for the elite athlete or the weekend participant. We understand that the most important piece of athletic equipment is the human body. Our PlayRiteTM program includes:
- Free injury screenings for athletic injuries
- Sports Enhancement Programs
- Coaches Education Clinics
- Custom and Off-The Shelf Bracing
- Specialized Strength and Flexibility Programs
LiveRiteTM …the fitness program for the next century.
Just what do so-called “health clubs” have to offer? Traditionally health clubs offer a large, impersonal, and warehouse atmosphere with minimal personal instruction and high initiation and contract fees. Through our LiveRiteTM program you can get all of the facility benefits of the health club with personal attention and without long-term contracts and high fees. Each of our offices is equipped with a complete exercise facility that is available for the use of our LiveRiteTM program members. The program also includes personalized instruction in the use of equipment, customized workouts designed to achieve the results you want, and access to our team of health care professionals. Other components of the LiveRiteTM program include:
- Clean, supervised, medical environment
- Month to month fees
- Blood Pressure Checks
- Body Fat Analysis
- Today's modern weight and cardio equipment
RehabRiteTM …helps the elderly in the long-term care setting in a variety of ways.
Traditional rehabilitation providers in long-term care facilities have been forced to make changes in the recent past which encourage a higher and more consistent quality of care. As a team of qualified professionals, it is our primary goal to provide exceptional services through daily treatment, ongoing assessment, and open communication between therapy, facility staff and family members. Together, we can make a difference in the rehabilitation of each person that we care for. This is the exact focus of the RehabRiteTM program at Cottage Rehab & Sports Medicine.
The heart of the RehabRiteTM program consists of:
- Development of a comprehensive therapy plan of care through evaluation by our skilled therapists within the scope of the referring physician’s orders.
- Treatment programs that are carried out by our skilled therapists and assistants focusing on individual resident needs and goals.
- Organization of a highly structured documentation program that includes daily treatment notes, weekly progress summaries, and periodic assessments that follow Medicare suggested guidelines.
- Open-line daily communication regarding individual residents and weekly discussions of all therapy programs with facility staff.
Cottage Rehab services also provides the following benefits:
- Continuity of care by having consistent staff providing daily services.
- Experience in the management of the Medicare A Prospective Payment System.
- Managed review of documentation to assure consistency with Medicare guidelines.
