Defining Top-Notch Care Since 1991

Our story begins over 30 years ago with one therapist determined to make a difference in his community. Athletico Founder and Executive Chairman, Mark Kaufman was a physical therapist and athletic trainer with a vision to help as many people as possible. Early in his career, Mark provided rehabilitation services for student-athletes at various organizations. 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 August of 1991. We operate in more than 900 neighborhood locations and have expanded our services to help people of all ages and abilities recover from pains, strains, and injuries so they can live life to its fullest.

Everything we do is anchored around our greater purpose of empowering people, inspiring hope, and transforming lives. When you choose us for your rehabilitation needs, you will discover our dedication to exceptional, compassionate care.
