Athletico Physical Therapy Opens in Independence

Posted on

INDEPENDENCE, MO, July 7, 2022—Athletico Physical Therapy has opened a new location in Independence, Missouri, located across the street from Hy-Vee Supermarket and next to Imagine Dental & Orthodontics. This location offers convenient hours including early morning and late evening appointments. To learn more, or to schedule a free assessment, visit www.athletico.com/IndependenceMO.

Athletico is committed to keeping employees and patients safe during COVID-19 and has taken several measures, including additional screening procedures, enhanced cleaning practices and appropriate distancing of patients during treatment sessions. In addition to in-clinic treatment at Independence, Athletico is also offering telehealth virtual treatment options where patients can connect with a physical therapist through a secure online video chat.

“I’m thrilled to be part of Athletico and look forward to growing the new Independence clinic from the ground up,” said Brandon Alumbaugh, PT, DPT and Clinic Manager of Athletico Independence. “As clinic manager, I’m excited to lead patients in the community towards their goals, empower them through individualized care, and treat the whole person to get them back to moving and feeling better.”

Services available at Athletico Independence include:

  • Physical therapy – Our physical therapists treat you to reduce pain, improve or restore mobility, and to help you remain at your optimal health without further risk of injury. We also offer joint replacement therapy, headache treatment, concussion therapy and more.
  • Free assessments – If you have a strain, sprain or nagging pain, you can see one of our experts for a free, 30-minute assessment. We evaluate your injury and recommend treatment. Please note, restrictions apply.
  • Manual therapy – Also known as hands-on physical therapy, our experts use only their hands while performing skilled, specific hands-on techniques to apply pressure to the soft tissues of the body. This treatment can help relax muscles, increase circulation and reduce tissue inflammation.
  • Hip rehabilitation – Whether you have pain or tightness in your hips or need rehabilitation before or after a hip surgery, our specialists can provide safe and effective treatment to keep you moving.
  • Back pain/spine rehabilitation – Although common, back pain is often misunderstood and left untreated can result in a prolonged recovery. Our back pain specialists help eliminate pain quickly and get you back to doing the things you love. This can help you reduce or eliminate the need for medication or advanced imaging and possibly surgery.

Additionally, Athletico Independence:

  • Accepts all major insurance plans, so you don’t need to worry about your visits not being covered.
  • Offers convenient hours, including early mornings and late evenings.
  • Schedules each initial evaluation quickly, sometimes the same or next day, but always within 24-48 hours.
  • Provides ongoing patient education on diagnosis, treatment plans and prescribed home-exercise programs.
  • Practices clear, consistent communication between therapist, physician and patient regarding progress.
