Excel Rehab & Sports Open New Clinic In Cleveland

Tuesday, August 2, 2022

Excel Rehab & Sports announces the grand opening of their fourth area clinic in Cleveland, led by area native and Clinical Director Ben McChesney, PT, DPT, COMT.

Excel Rehab & Sports, located in Hixson, Northshore, East Brainerd and now the newly opened clinic in Cleveland, is at 862 Callen Lane, Suite 100, off Paul Huff behind Harbor Freight, where they are currently accepting new patients.

Residents can request care through their physician's office or schedule an appointment directly at any location by calling 254-5461 or visiting their website and be scheduled within 24-48 hours.

"I believe my purpose is to guide patients back to everyday activities, work and recreation while instilling a renewed confidence that they can continue to thrive in whatever brings them joy," says Mr. McChesney. "It is a privilege to come home and serve the Cleveland community."

Jeremy Shook, PT, DPT, OCS, COMT will continue to lead and mentor Excel's expanding Chattanooga physical therapy teams that care for pain in a variety of areas such as low back and neck, shoulder, knee, hip, ankle, and arthritic joint symptoms. Also, they have expertise in post-surgical rehabilitation, including fracture repair, ACL reconstruction, total knee and joint replacement, rotator cuff repairs, neck and back surgeries, and more.

"Opening our fourth location in Cleveland speaks to the talent of our Chattanooga team driving patient need in surrounding communities," says Mr. Shook. "Placing Ben in Cleveland brings a sense of home to the patients we serve and emphasizes the importance of the community-based therapy we provide." 

The Cleveland expansion, like other clinics, came in response to patient need for increased access to proven hands-on therapy, personalized care plans, and treatment techniques proven to get patients better, faster, said officials. They will offer a free 30-minute pain and performance screen, by appointment only, in the Cleveland clinic location through August, to evaluate conditions first-hand.
