FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers - Gurnee...Now Open!

Gurnee, IL - FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Centers-Gurnee is officially open and seeing patients. Sheri and Eric Sato opened the doors to the public on September 7th as the newest FYZICAL location at 34498 N. Old Walnut Circle, off of Washington Street in Gurnee.

Offering a holistic approach to wellness, FYZICAL not only helps clients recover from injuries and surgeries but also helps them achieve better overall health and wellness. With its Balance Therapy Program, FYZICAL helps treat the vast and complex range of issues that can cause balance disorders in a safe and challenging environment. A Safety Overhead harness System (SOS) installed at the clinic allows patients to work without fear of falling.

The Satos moved to the area 27 years ago and wanted to invest their time and talents into a franchise that would help their community. "It feels like the right time to work with the injured and aging population" said the couple. Sheri is a personal trainer and Eric has an extensive background in healthcare marketing. "We are a running family of 5, so we are no strangers to aches/pains and have had some experience visiting physical therapy clinics". The goal was to open a clinic where each patient sees a therapist 1:1 for their entire appointment and the staff cares deeply for each patient. Joining them is Physical Therapist, Anthony Lanzillotti who has 27 years of PT experience and is trained in Balance Therapy.

Opening FYZICAL was an easy decision because the motto of the franchise is to "LOVE YOUR LIFE". Sheri recalls resonating with the phrase "keeping people active so they can do what they love" because she knows from experience a sedentary lifestyle is not what most people crave.

There are many opportunities to serve the older residents of the Gurnee and Grayslake communities. Every 11 seconds an elderly patient is seen in the ER due to a fall. "Fight the Fall" is the annual campaign for the entire national FYZICAL franchise to drive awareness and prevention.

FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers-Gurnee offers a wide variety of services designed to address a broad range of diagnoses, conditions and concerns, including dizziness, balance and neurologic issues. The center also offers an orthopedic rehabilitation program that helps patients reduce and reverse orthopedic pain or immobility.
