Posted on

Chicago, IL. —Athletico’s newest location will open in the South Chicago neighborhood, at 8905 S. Commercial Ave. The clinic’s staff is excited to continue their quality of care throughout this community.

“I always sought a profession that would allow me to serve others; this motivation stemmed from the story of my father.  He was paralyzed in a car accident before I was born, and through his work ethic and physical therapy he returned to his career and family.” Facility Manager, Jordan Hirstein, PT, DPT, ATC shared. “My father’s story continues to be my inspiration, as my greatest joy is working alongside patients to achieve their goals and work through challenges.”
