Since its inception in 1991, Athletico has worked diligently at becoming the best provider of physical therapy, occupational/hand therapy, work rehabilitation, and fitness services throughout Chicagoland, Wisconsin and Indiana. Our team of specialists includes physical, occupational, work conditioning, functional capacity evaluations, massage therapists, certified athletic trainers, personal trainers, and strength and conditioning specialists. In addition, Athletico provides services to over 150 affiliations including high schools, colleges, and all of Chicago’s professional sports teams.
To demonstrate Athletico’s commitment to providing quality care and service to our patients, we measure functional patient outcomes and patient satisfaction using a third-party outcomes system, Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes, Inc. (FOTO®). While many in health care say they are committed to quality care and service, few are willing to put their resources into actually measuring these cornerstones and responding to them. Athletico is doing just that.
The proof is in the results, both patient care and professionally. In 2013, Athletico was named the #1 place to work in Chicago by the Chicago Tribune’s Top Workplaces. In addition, in 2012, Athletico received the distinct honor of being named Practice of the Year by Advance Magazine.. Physical Therapy : What to Expect from an Athletico Physical Therapist
