"As an athlete in high school and college, I have had the opportunity to sit on the other side of the table, so I understand how stressful things can get when you are not feeling 100%," said Michelle Bamrick PTA, ATC/L, CSCS, ASTYM-cert and Facility Manager of Athletico. "I am looking forward to supporting those who are struggling with pain and helping them get back to their everyday activities."
Physical therapy – Personalized treatment plans, developed in partnership with patients, provide rehabilitation for different issues including back and neck pain, sport, work or auto injuries, muscle strains and sprains or joint replacement therapy to name a few.
Work compensation – From the time of injury to case closure, our rehabilitation services work for our patients in a cost-effective and timely manner. This service educates employees on safe work habits and injury prevention. Athletico also customizes treatments to meet the needs of each case and offers work conditioning evaluations and workers' compensation services to provide the stabilizing, strengthening, and conditioning necessary for work simulation and return-to-work.
Vestibular rehabilitation – Our vestibular rehabilitation program offers a comprehensive approach to evaluating and treating patients with complaints of dizziness, balance deficits and motion sensitivity.
Functional Movement Screens™ – This screen helps identify functional limitations and/or asymmetries which can later lead to injuries. It also ensures you are qualified to do certain movement patterns in the absence of dysfunction and is a vital component to creating a safe and effective training program.
Complimentary injury screenings – A 30-minute free assessment performed by a licensed clinician who reviews an injury or problem to your musculoskeletal complaint, as well as assesses movement impairments and discusses how this is affecting activities of daily living. If needed, we can begin treatment immediately, no referral necessary. Please note, restrictions apply.
