Northeastern-based physical therapy and rehabilitation service Professional Physical Therapy is celebrating National Training Month this month.
Professional Physical Therapy, a leading provider of outpatient physical therapy and rehabilitation services throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, joins the National Athletic Trainers’ Association in recognizing the critical role of Athletic Trainers, both on and off the field.
The business has multiple offices in the Huntington township, including Greenlawn, Huntington and Melville.
This month, Professional Physical Therapy is raising awareness about the Athletic Training profession, while recognizing their own ATs for the compassionate care they provide to student-athletes. The company will piggyback on the NATA’s theme “ATs Are Health Care,” and activities will include weekly trivia questions and a social media campaign led by local student-athletes.
Angelo Marsella, partner and director of sports medicine at Professional Physical Therapy said, “March is always an exciting time, as it gives us the opportunity to shed light on the contributions Athletic Trainers continuously make to getting injured athletes back in the game. They work hand in hand with our physical therapists to provide athletes with the highest quality care from the time of injury until they’re cleared to return to play. On countless occasions, our ATs have acted quickly, provided emergency care, and have saved lives.”
Professional Physical Therapy also launched its Athletic Training month with initiatives for two local sports teams; Iona College in New Rochelle, and St. John’s University Red Storm in Queens. The company provides athletic training services to more than 40 schools in the Northeast, offering early recognition and evaluation of injuries, fast tracked physical therapy appointments in all of its 178 clinics and referrals to top medical professionals.
