We started with one therapist trying to make a difference in his community. Our CEO and founder Mark Kaufman was a physical therapist and athletic trainer with a vision to help as many people as possible. He started by providing rehabilitation services for student athletes at various organizations, with his first two being Francis W. Parker High School and Chicago Lions Rugby. Through his work with these athletes, he recognized the need for a dedicated sports rehabilitation and physical therapy facility in Chicago which led to our first clinic opening in 1991. Years later – we’ve opened more than 400 neighborhood locations and added more services to help people of all ages recover from pains, strains and injuries. We employ more than 4,500 expert clinicians, athletic trainers and other team members. In addition to physical therapy, we also provide athletic training, occupational therapy, specialty programs and fitness services to high schools, colleges and professional sports teams. Our expertise also includes evaluating workers’ compensation issues, like work conditioning, job-site analysis and ergonomic assessments.
Everything we do is focused around our core purpose of enhancing people’s health and quality of life. When you choose us for your rehabilitation needs, you will discover our dedication to exceptional, compassionate care.
