About Us

Located in the heart of McHenry, Illinois, Ortho Go Physical Therapy specializes in orthopedics that relieve musculoskeletal disorders. Our owner, Scott J. Schultz PT, CMDT, founded our private practice in 1988 when he recognized the need for in-home outpatient services. He responded by opening our first clinic in 2002, and splitting therapies between home care and our treatment center. Scott graduated from a physical therapy program at the Rosalind Franklin University in 1980. In addition to his clinical duties, he has served several roles at the Illinois Physical Therapy Association. He is also a part of the advisory committee for the upcoming PTA program at McHenry County College.

Scott became a credentialed provider of the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment by the McKenzie Institute USA in 1996. He also became a licensed provider for Work Well Systems Inc. in 2005 and DSI Work Solutions Inc. in 2006 in industrial evaluation and treatment. Most recently in 2009, he became certified in the Astym approach of soft tissue management. He continues to stay abreast of the latest trends in physical therapy.

Scott has lived and worked in McHenry County since 1982. He is a past member of the McHenry area Jaycees and past president and hall of fame member of the Ibex Ski Club. He enjoys the many outdoor activities the area offers and is an avid fan of both the Chicago Bears® and Chicago Wolves® hockey team. He would like to thank all our patients and colleagues that recommended him for the Chicago's Outstanding Physical Therapist awards.

Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury cases are accepted on a case-by-case basis. Please note that we do not bill attorneys. Each case is judged independently and we will bill the responsible insurance carrier. If necessary, we can place a lien on your case when appropriate. In any circumstance, a specific patient payment plan will be established and all unpaid charges are your responsibility.
Please note that we do not bill attorneys.

Referrals and Permits

Illinois law permits treatment by a licensed physical therapist without a physician's referral. Contact us today to set up an initial consultation!

Postural Screen

Our licensed physical therapist can conduct a free screening in order to evaluate the presence of postural faults that can lead to future musculoskeletal problems. Based on this assessment, we can determine if further treatments are necessary. We sometimes suggest postural corrections you can do at home, including stretching or body mechanics.

Blood Pressure Screening

We are now offering free blood pressure screenings as our schedule allows. No appointments are necessary.
