Physical and Occupational Therapists

Our physical therapists and occupational therapists are the team members who support rehabilitation of athletes after injury. They set strength and conditioning goals for athletes to get them back to performing in their sport. These team members are typically athletes themselves and many are also athletic trainers. This helps the therapists relate to the athletes and know how to motivate and educate them on getting back to pre-injury form.

If you have a condition that won’t go away, self-refer to a physical therapist for an evaluation appointment. Call 317-355-PTOT (7868) to schedule today or request an appointment online.
