Our Story

While working closely together at a sports medicine facility in New York City in the late 1980s, EXCEL founders and co-owners Matt Gibble, PT and Gary Flink, PT, MSPT envisioned opening a New Jersey based practice that would set the standards in orthopedic physical therapy for everyone from school age children to geriatrics.

In March 1990, EXCEL opened the doors to their Fort Lee office. Since then, they have opened fourteen additional offices throughout Bergen, Hudson, Union, and Essex counties, all of which were designed and built on a foundation of excellence in physical therapy. From sprains and strains to the most complex surgical cases, EXCEL takes pride in being the most tenured and experienced provider in the treatment of these types of injuries. Today, after nearly 30 years, EXCEL remains the most trusted source for rehabilitation in New Jersey by patients and physicians alike.
