"In a million years I never thought I would actually look forward to exercising! Since this neuropathy started, I have had days and nights where I just want to give up. Every time I go there, I am given hope. You have no idea how much that means to me. I love you guys."

"Northern Valley Physical Therapy was recommended by Stephen J. Mcllveen my Orthopedic Surgeon for out-patient therapy for the rehabilitation of my full hip replacement. Right from the initial appointment I knew it was the right decision. I was pleasantly greeted by the receptionist and introduced to Denise Keehn my beginning therapist who thoroughly discussed where I was at in my rehabilitation after seven days at a rehabilitation center and two weeks of home therapy three days a week. I showed Denise a list of the exercises I was doing with the home therapist each day of the week, 3 days with the home therapist and 4 days on my own. Denise immediately began my first session with a thorough evaluation of my present abilities with a series of exercises. Some from the list I provided and other she felt should be added to improve my rehabilitation process. As I progressed exercises were deleted and added to the list. After the first week I received a new therapist, Joe, who was my regular therapist for the entire stint I was at Northern Valley Physical Therapy. Joe is also an excellent therapist and did an excellent job in my rehabilitation therapy to its completion. Having your own personal therapist is an important part of the entire rehabilitation process. I found the entire staff at Northern Valley Physical Therapy to be knowledgeable, skillful and very personable. I highly recommend Northern Valley Physical Therapy for any of your physical rehabilitation needs."

"If you need physical therapy, NVPT is the place to be. Denise and her staff are great. Denise is not only you expect a therapist to be - knowledgable, confident, professional and caring, she also has a great sense of humor. She gets you to do things you never though you could, and after three right knee surgeries, I am so greatful that I was referred to Denise by another one of her clients. I have been to three PT facilities and NVPT is far and away the best."

- J.A., Pearl River, NY

"The physical therapy that I received from Northern Valley Physical Therapy was excellent. The staff especially Denise and Bob was very attentive, caring and so friendly. They adjusted my hip replacement PT to fit my capabilities, push me when needed and back down when they noticed me having difficulty. The exercises and stretching they gave me helped me to get around by myself much faster than if I had stayed at home and had a visiting therapist.

I am now pain free and able to do things that I had not been able to do in the past few years.

I am very thankful to Denise and the staff at Northern Valley Physical Therapy and I highly recommend NVPT to anyone in need of physical therapy.

Thank you very much "

"Dear Denise,


Thank you for your intensive regimen of therapy, both massage/electric stimulation and closely guided exercises, machines and bar.

I found the illustrated copies of specific exiercises very helpful in keeping up with my home efforts.

The trip to Northvale was well worth it. Good luck with your new operation in River Vale.

-George M.

"I would highly recommend Northern Valley Physical Therapy. Having previously been to other physical therapy facilities, I can attest to the fact that this is definitely "a cut above". The Northvale office is inviting and offers a variety of treatment and equipment rooms; it is not one single exercise space. Denise Keehn, my therapist, was personable, receptive to patient input and above all was extremely knowledgeable. She was the epitome of professionalism, carefully assessing my weaknesses and complaints and addressing them with expertise. If you are in need of physical therapy, she is definitely someone to see."

"I am convinced that Meaghan's recovery was 100 percent due to the excellent physical therapy provided by the well trained and compassionate staff."

Diane E., River Edge, NJ

I had a serious automobile collision in June 2015; and after long hospital stays and several cast removals, I started physical therapy at RVPT.  It has been and continues to be a healthy and worthwhile restorative experience.  Joe, my regular therapist, and Denise works with me sometimes, are true professionals: knowledgeable, caring, attentive and confident about the good results of their therapy protocols.  Jane, the secretary, carefully monitors the insurance authorizations and gets the desired results.  Another unusual feature is the privacy of separate treatment rooms.  I highly recommend RVPT to anyone hoping to regain physical strength after the unfortunate loss of any physical dexterity, big or small!

I have been a patient at Northern Valley\River Vale Physical Therapy on two separate occasions for two different medical issues, and both times my care and therapy have been outstanding.  I found my therapists, Denise and Joe, very knowledgeable and patient, always listening to my concerns and going out of the way to answer my many questions.  One of the things I appreciated the most, was that each patient is assigned a private room for their one on one therapy, unlike many other therapy practices where you are attended to in a large room with many other patients.  I was much more comfortable having this privacy while being cared for.  Only the Therapy equipment is in an open room, which is not an issue.  I believe  the owner, Denise Keehn, has 30 plus years experience and is constantly continuing education to keep current.  Working with both Joe and Denise has helped me in my recuperation from knee surgery as well as a torn tendon.  I have recommended Northern Valley\River Vale Therapy  two both friends and family and they have also been very happy and have had wonderful results I would never of if I did to have therapy again.
