Oak Brook, IL (Vocus) November 1, 2010
AthletiCo Physical and Occupational Therapy, an Illinois and Milwaukee-based provider of rehabilitation services, will open its newest physical therapy center at 799 Central Avenue in Highland Park at the beginning of November. AthletiCo Highland Park’s services will include Physical Therapy, Sports Medicine, Orthopedic Rehabilitation, Work Rehabilitation, and Golf Rehabilitation.
Kevin Makey, PT, MSPT, PES, who has spent the last two years as a Facility Manager at an AthletiCo managed center in Glenview, will serve in the same capacity at the new Highland Park facility. Makey began his career at AthletiCo’s Evanston location after graduating from Ithaca College with a Masters in Physical Therapy in 2003.
“I have been with AthletiCo for almost seven years and have worked exclusively on the North Shore, both in Evanston and Glenview, so I’m excited for this new opportunity,” says Makey. “I know that Highland Park has a great reputation for friendly people, excellent schools, and a close knit community.”
Makey grew up in Buffalo, New York, and became interested in physical therapy after witnessing its benefits first-hand as a kid. On separate occasions, he suffered a broken arm and sustained a knee injury that required surgery. Physical therapy was needed in both cases and Makey’s positive experience rehabbing from the injuries motivated him to pursue it as a career.
What Makey enjoys most about being a physical therapist is that it allows him to help people achieve their goals, whether that means walking up and down stairs or returning to the field for a big game. He is passionate about the game of golf and spent three years heading AthletiCo’s Golf Fitness Program. He possesses the knowledge and expertise to lead golf-specific rehabilitation training and exercises, which will be a cornerstone of the new Highland Park facility.
“I am excited to open AthletiCo Highland Park and provide premier physical therapy and rehabilitation services to the citizens of Highland Park and the surrounding communities,” says Makey. “Through the use of individualized treatment plans, we will work closely with each patient to assist them in reaching their unique rehab goals. AthletiCo is eager to join this great community and provide orthopedic rehabilitation services to the citizens of Highland Park.”
