Justin Schvach, MOT, OTR/L serves as the Facility Manager and treating Occupational Therapist at the West Chicago facility. Schvach grew up in Cicero and is excited to bring his knowledge and experience to West Chicago while providing exceptional care and guidance towards wellness for West Chicago residents. Justin attended Fenwick High School in Oak Park, and enjoyed playing football all four years. After suffering a season ending injury, Justin was introduced to Athletico by attending physical therapy at Athletico River Grove in 1998. This sparked his interest in physical therapy and led Schvach to become a Rehabilitation Aide for Athletico in 2000. Justin earned his master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from Midwestern University in 2009, and five years later Justin is fulfilling his dream of becoming a Facility Manager and couldn’t be happier that it is in West Chicago. “I feel Athletico will be a great addition toward providing a positive impact on the lives of residents in West Chicago” states Justin. “I am committed to providing an exceptional patient experience to guide West Chicago residents towards a high quality of life.”

Schvach’s specialties lie in occupational therapy, also known as hand therapy. This is a dedicated focus on the treatment of upper extremities. Justin comments that “As an Occupational Therapist, I am humbled and feel rewarded by the sense of gratitude and thanks received by our patients. The happiness expressed by helping them return to the activities they love to do, is why I love being an Occupational Therapist.”

Athletico West Chicago provides the community quality care and convenience through the following means:

  • Patient outcomes reporting using a third-party outcomes system to provide measurable data on a patient’s progression that is discussed throughout the course of treatment
  • Patient satisfaction reporting throughout treatment in order to better understand and respond to patient needs while they are still receiving rehabilitation services, rather than after a patient is discharged. Results show that 98% of our patients would recommend us to their friends and family.
  • Convenient hours including early mornings, evenings, and Saturdays
  • Prompt scheduling of each initial evaluation within 24-48 hours of the patient’s phone call
  • Ongoing patient education on diagnosis, treatment plans, and prescribed home-exercise programs
  • Clear, consistent communication between therapist, physician, and patient regarding progress
