Athletico Physical Therapy Continues Geographic Expansion with Entry into Mississippi through Acquisition of Endurance Physical Therapy

Posted on

OAK BROOK, Ill. — Athletico Physical Therapy announced today an agreement to acquire Endurance Physical Therapy, a leading local physical therapy and rehabilitation service provider with eight clinics in the Northwest Mississippi region.

This acquisition marks Athletico’s first entry into Mississippi and expands its geographic footprint to 13 states. With the addition of the Endurance Physical Therapy clinics, Athletico will serve patients at over 560 locations nationally. All existing Endurance clinics will remain open and fully staffed to serve current and new patients.

“We’re very excited to welcome Endurance Physical Therapy to Athletico. They have an incredibly talented and experienced team in place and have established a very strong reputation for best-in-class patient care in the region,” said Ron Rodgers, President and CEO, Athletico. “We look forward to continuing to provide the outstanding care that the local community has come to expect.”

Founded in Oxford, Mississippi, Endurance Physical Therapy was the result of several clinician-owners – Vance Holland, Joel Montgomery, Niles Norris, Kelly Shinall, Chris Glaze and Kyle Wicker – coming together to create the go-to destination for physical therapy at eight locations across Northwest Mississippi. Available services include orthopedic and spinal rehabilitation, occupational therapy, hand and upper extremity rehabilitation, sports medicine, and athletic training.

“Both of our companies were founded by clinicians and have a strong focus on patient care and satisfaction. These common values and our complementing strengths are why our partnership with Athletico makes sense,” said Niles Norris, one of Endurance Physical Therapy’s founders. “Our owners and clinicians are thrilled to play an active role in the partnership and continue to serve patients in our communities.”
