We’re thrilled to announce Excel Physical Therapy has been voted Best of Winnebago County for the sixth year in a row. We have worked hard to earn this distinction and will continue to grow and evolve to meet the needs of our patients in Oshkosh and the Fox Valley.

As our clinic’s founder and owner, Bob Runge, says, “The staff of Excel Physical Therapy would like to thank the community for voting us Best of Winnebago for physical therapy and sports medicine. We appreciate your support and recommendations to family and friends who have injuries and pain. Our team is very thankful for the appreciation you express when coming in for treatment. Each of us are grateful for the opportunity to serve the residents of this community.”

23 years of growth and expertise

Excel Physical Therapy in Oshkosh has humble beginnings. In 1998, we began with a small 250 sq. foot office and a dream to create a clinic where highly skilled clinicians would practice and increase their expertise while providing treatment in a warm, caring environment. As the need for space grew, our physical therapy clinic quickly expanded.

“Prior to moving to our current location, Excel Physical Therapy expanded multiple times in different facilities, as well as increased from one to four Doctors of Physical Therapy,” Bob said.  

Specialized training and certifications

Excel is a leader in clinical expertise. Our team members have specialized training, certifications, and memberships.

  • Orthopedic Clinical Specialists (by the American Board of Physical Therapists Specialists)
  • Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation certifications (for treating dizziness and balance disorders)
  • Dry needling certifications
  • Members of the American Physical Therapy Association and the Academy of Orthopedic Physical Therapy.

Dry needling proficiency

We now have three physical therapists who’ve completed their dry needling certification—Stephanie Korb, Zach Vandenberg and Bob Runge. (Dry needling involves special techniques with needles to naturally reduce pain and restore movement.)

Video oculography

As one of the first clinics in Winnebago County to utilize video oculography, Excel is a leader in applying advanced technology to aid in evaluating and treating patients with vertigo.

We currently have over a decade of experience with video oculography and are planning to increase access to additional state-of-the-art testing equipment. Our staff has also received advanced training in vestibular rehabilitation from internationally recognized experts.

Billing improvements

Our patients are our number one focus. Meeting their needs in every possible area is important to us, including payment needs. 

To help patients who have no or limited insurance, we developed a cash/prepay program to keep physical therapy treatment affordable.

We also train staff in off-site billing, which allows us to focus on assisting patients while increasing billing efficiency.

People first, always

Year after year, we continue to grow and expand our expertise to provide the best physical therapy near you. Being the top-rated nearby physical therapy clinic is an honor we strive to uphold.

As Bob says, “Our secret sauce is really our people. While our extensive experience and commitment to advanced and specialized training help us diagnose and treat patients more effectively, the way we genuinely care for our patients and their families is what keeps people coming back and recommending us to others. Our staff care about each other and enjoy working together, and that’s evident to patients and providers who come to our clinic.”

Living up to the public’s recognition of us as the Best of Winnebago County physical therapy is a distinction we’re proud to hold.
