Theresa Palkovic


Valley Rehab Center is owned and operated by Theresa Palkovic, Physical Therapist. Theresa has been a physical therapist for 36 years. Her experience includes Inpatient and Outpatient Physical Therapy Rehabilitation, Industrial Rehab and Pain Management, Pediatric and Geriatric Home Health Care and Vestibular Rehabilitation and Sensory Integration.

Theresa is a certified Neurodevelopmental Therapist and has extensive training in Manual Therapy. In addition, she has training in Functional Capacity Evaluation and Work Simulation. She utilizes an integrated approach to rehabilitation by stimulating multiple systems in one treatment session to get faster, more effective results. Her primary focus is restoring function and reducing pain so her patients can have healthy and productive lives.

Theresa started Valley Rehab Center as a ministry for healing. Physical Therapy has been her passion since she was 15 years old. She has always viewed Physical Therapy as the God ordained ministry for her life and never as a job or career. With that in mind, she has focused on making Valley Rehab Center a unique physical therapy experience. Her goal was to make Valley Rehab Center a place where patients can rest, relax and find a moment of peace in their day while enjoying the benefits of physical therapy for pain reduction and restoration of function.

She has been blessed with a staff that shares her beliefs and the philosophy that “physical therapy isn’t just their job but their ministry in life!”
