As part of the grand opening, the Kalamazoo clinic will host a ribbon cutting ceremony later this month on Friday, October 29 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST at 4602 W. Main St., Kalamazoo, MI 49006. Members of the community, as well as local and state representatives, are invited to join the Athletico clinic team to celebrate the opening and learn more about physical therapy services.

“Being able to serve my community by helping others get back to living their life pain free is a passion of mine,” said Karri Porco, DPT and Clinic Manager of Athletico Kalamazoo. “I was a physical therapy assistant for 14 years before attending physical therapy school, and I’m excited to expand my knowledge and areas of practice while growing an Athletico clinic in my hometown.”

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 the Kalamazoo clinic, Athletico is also offering telehealth virtual treatment options where patients can connect with a physical or occupational therapist through a secure online video chat.

Services available at Athletico Kalamazoo 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. If needed, we can begin treatment immediately, no referral necessary. Please note, restrictions apply.
  • Work injuries – We are committed to helping everyone practice safety at work. Our workers’ compensation specialists are trained to assess workplace environments and worker behaviors to provide customized intervention techniques and programs. In addition to treating injuries that occur on the job, our services include work conditioning, ergonomics, post-offer/pre-employment testing and more.
  • 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.
