Dr. Nelli Ban

DPT, PT (Owner of Cadence PT Co)

Dr. Nelli Ban was born and raised in Russia. Since 2000, Dr. Ban has resided in the Chicagoland area. She graduated with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Rosalind Franklin University, 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. Dr. Ban has treated over 1000 patients in this setting. Her career has been focused on helping her patients recover from different injuries and impairments. She spends much of her time trying to improve patients’ lifestyle, independence, and to ensure all patients return to their pre-injury status. Her focus is on rehabilitative activities working collaboratively with the patient’s physician.

Noticing that the patient population does not receive the level of care and attention they deserve at the large chain PT clinics; Dr. Nelli Ban started Cadence Physical Therapy clinic under the proposition that all patients deserve One on One Treatments with a Doctor of Physical Therapy, using state-of-the-art equipment, and where “The Patient” is the Focus. We promise that the patient will be seen by the same Physical Therapist from initial evaluation visit to the discharge visit. We are proud to be a Physical Therapist-Owned and Operated Clinic.

PT, DPT

My name is Dr. David Thomas and I am a Physical Therapist employed here at Cadence Physical Therapy. I completed my Bachelors with a major in Kinesiology and a minor in Nutrition at University of Illinois at Chicago. I completed my graduate degree to become a Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2019 from Governors State University.

My aspirations are to further enhance my clinical, therapeutic, and hands-on skills in the Outpatient Setting to better serve a more diverse population suffering from musculoskeletal conditions and sport-related injuries. I am a firm believer that exercise can heal the body as I have provided successful rehabilitation for myself for several diagnoses such as cervical nerve root impingement, low back pain, and sciatica.

In 2020, I am to become certified for dry-needling, which is a skilled intervention aimed to address myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. I am also currently still a National Academy of Sports Medicine certified personal trainer, which is what ultimately drove my passion to pursue a career in Physical Therapy!

Finally, I completed professional research examining the utilization of direct access for wellness and the prevention of osteoporosis in the outpatient orthopedic setting which can be accessed via google scholar.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

At Cadence Physical Therapy Co

We know that you do not want physical therapy and simply want to get back to the activities that you love such as playing soccer or going for a run. We RESPECT your time and want you to get better FAST – that is why we only use Expert Physical Therapists in your treatment (no aides or PTAs), and our goal is to discharge you fast because we put our Patients First not our company’s profits.

Cadence Physical Therapy

FRIENDLY AND CARING STAFF. FLEXIBLE HOURS

Our commitment to you is that you will receive one-on-one attention from one of our staff members with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy. We will never double, triple, or quadruple book “your appointment slot.” This ensures that you get one-on-one time with your Doctor of Physical Therapy, and you are not doing your exercises alone in the corner like at the hospital or at the corporate physical therapy clinics. If you are currently seeing a Physical Therapist that is leaving you alone to perform your exercises, to go and treat other patients or is double / triple booking your appointment, please give us call today!

Even though we are a small / local PT clinic, we still made the capital investment to have only the best equipment for you to use in our clinic. Our Doctor of Physical Therapy will guide you through an individually customized plan on treatment, based on your initial evaluation. Thereafter, we will provide Home Exercises that will normally be different than your clinic treatment program. If your current clinic is simply having you perform the Home Exercises in the clinic, please give us a call today!

We are one of the few Russian-speaking Physical Therapy clinics in the Chicagoland area. If Russian is your preferred language, please give us a call today!

We believe that manual therapy is an important element towards rehabilitation for many patients. Our doctors are highly trained in the approaches of manual therapy. If your current clinic does not believe in manual therapy, please give us a call today!

Located at the corner of Aptakisic Rd and Weiland Rd, in the same shopping plaza as the Royal Touch Car Wash and the Dunkin’ Donuts. We are directly across the street from the JCYS of Buffalo Grove.

WE ARE COMMITTED TO EARNING THE TRUST OF OUR PATIENTS, COMMUNITY, AND PROFESSION.
