Pushing Beyond the DPT…

Posted on by Kelli Schneider, PT, DPT, OCS

Four years ago I moved to Chicago as an eager newly graduated physical therapist (PT) who was drawn to Athletico for its strong presence in the performing arts community. As a dancer myself, I felt providing physical therapy to dancers was the absolute perfect way to marry my two passions. Little did I know that Athletico would develop me beyond this in ways I never imagined, such as providing training for me to execute Video Gait Analysis and return-to-sport testing for ACL reconstructions, as well as giving me the opportunity to manage a clinic! I felt pushed to optimize patient outcomes and provide the best customer service in the clinic, but I also felt a strong encouragement to continue learning and improving myself. One of the most defining ways that Athletico demonstrated its investment in my long term growth was through the Evidence in Motion orthopaedic residency.
