We often get asked: how does one become a Physical Therapist for a professional sports team?
Here is our short list:
First, you need a thorough understanding of the sport’s demands.
-Steve was fortunate to pitch at Bucknell University which led him to complete an Overhead Athlete Fellowship.
Second, you would benefit from post-professional training after PT school. It will prepare you for advanced clinical practice and equip you with the tools to get athletes back to peak performance.
-Residency: Ironman Sports Medicine Institute
-Fellowship: Overhead Athlete Fellowship w/ Kansas City Royals & ATI
Third, you need to be able to function well in a multi-disciplinary team. Medical and performance outcomes are maximized when all members of the team are supporting each other and owning their role.
