Dr. Nelli Ban

DPT, PT (Owner of Cadence PT Co)


Dr. Nelli Ban was born and raised in Russia but spent summers in Ukraine living with her grandparents. She immigrated to the United States in 2000, where she earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Rosalind Franklin University in North Chicago.

Shortly after graduating, Dr. Ban started working at a busy outpatient orthopedic/sports medicine clinic in the Skokie area. Thereafter, she began working for a home health agency where she treated more than a thousand patients. Her whole career has been dedicated to helping her patients recover from a variety of injuries and disabilities. Dr. Ban devotes most of her time to ensuring that all of her patients are able to recover and return to their pre-injury state. She also works with the patient’s physician to implement rehabilitative treatments, focusing on the patient’s recovery.

However, after years of observing that the patient population was not receiving the level of care and attention they deserve at large chain physical therapy clinics, Dr. Nelli Ban decided to start her own practice. With a firm belief that all patients deserve easy access to high-quality and efficient physical therapy treatments, Cadence Physical Therapy Co. was born.

At Cadence Physical Therapy Clinic, the patient is the primary focus. Dr. Ban’s team of experienced and highly skilled Doctors of Physical Therapy (DPT) combines an individualized one-on-one approach to patient care and state-of-the-art equipment that has been shown to get patients better faster with fewer PT visits needed.
