Our Practice


Independence Physical Therapy was founded in 2007 with the vision of creating a physical therapy practice that treats every patient with individualized care. Our environment is professional, yet comfortable and friendly.  Located in the heart of Crete, our physical therapists are committed to providing the highest quality patient care.  Our goal is that our patients achieve their highest level of function.  As a company, we have enjoyed participating in many community events.

Barbara Gerk, PT

I am a licensed Physical Therapist with 13 years experience in the outpatient setting.  I earned a Master of Physical Therapy degree in 2001 from Governors State University.   As a resident of Crete, I thoroughly enjoy serving this community and am very grateful that Dan and I are working and raising our children in such a nice town.


Daniel Gerk, PT

 I earned my Bachelor degree in Kinesiology from University of Illinois at Chicago and my Master of Physical Therapy degree from Governors State University. I have been practicing since 2002 in orthopedics as well as geriatrics. I believe in using evidence based practice to design rehabilitation programs that meet the needs of my patients. My other interests include hunting, fishing, and enjoying other outdoor activities with my family.
