    Mark Kaufman, PT, ATC, Athletico president and founder Thank you for taking the time to learn about Athletico Physical Therapy. In 1991, Athletico president and founder, Mark Kaufman, opened the first Athletico center in Chicago. As a licensed physical therapist and certified athletic trainer, Mark opened the first center with one employee and provided services to two affiliations—Francis W. Parker High School and Chicago Lions Rugby.

    Today, Athletico has facilities throughout Arizona, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin, and employs over 4000 clinical and administrative staff, and offers more than 40 specialty rehabilitation, outreach, and fitness services. Our team of specialists includes physical therapists and occupational therapists, physical therapist assistants, certified athletic trainers, personal trainers, strength and conditioning specialists, and massage therapists.

    Athletico has staff with expertise in treating the worker’s compensation population with such services as work conditioning, functional capacity evaluations, post-offer testing and ergonomic assessments. In addition, Athletico provides athletic training, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and fitness services to affiliations including high schools, colleges, and many professional sports teams.

    To demonstrate Athletico’s commitment to providing quality care and service to our patients, in early 2011 we began measuring 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.

    AthletiCo provides physical and occupational therapy in Illinois, Milwaukee, and Northwest Indiana.The implementation of outcomes measurement within all of Athletico’s facilities has been a progression of advancements over the past twenty years. During this time, we have diversified our services to meet the needs of our communities and supported these service offerings by providing employees post-professional education through in-house continuing education, tuition reimbursement, and an orthopedic clinical residency program supported by Evidence in Motion.

    It is through this commitment to continuous improvement that patients and referral sources can be confident they are working with specialists in the field of orthopedic rehabilitation, physical therapy, occupational therapy, sports medicine, and outreach services.

    Athletico Physical Therapy and Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers and PRORehab closed on a deal in late 2014 that now gives our combined company a geographic footprint of nine states and over 330 locations. Both companies will be integrated under the Athletico Physical Therapy brand. Without the support of our patients, partners, medical community, employees and stakeholder, this opportunity to combine our platforms would not be available to us. Thank you for striving to make your communities Better for Every Body. Thank you for putting your trust in Athletico Physical Therapy.
