“After many years of competing in karate at the international level, I sustained an injury that prevented me from competing, which affected my life both physically and psychologically,” said Thomas Gorney, PT, DPT and Clinic Manager of Athletico Oak Park South. “It was at this moment when I knew I wanted to help other people overcome injuries, so they could get back to doing what they love. I’m excited to be part of the Oak Park community and look forward to sharing the benefits of physical therapy with more people.”
