At Athlon Physical Therapy our mission is simple, to provide the best patient centered care to our local communities. We strive to work with a personal network of physicians and community leaders in Southern Arizona, to allow us to achieve this mission.
We are a group of outpatient private practice physical therapy clinics who have earned the National Private Practice Award from the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). We provide geographical access with 4 locations: Oro Valley in the North, Green Valley in the South, Tanque Verde in the East, and Ft. Lowell Centrally. We boast highly educated practitioners who are doctorally trained, board certified orthopedic specialists, fellowship/residency trained, as well as leaders and educators in the physical therapy field. We are preferred providers for most insurance plans, and offer very reasonable self-pay rates for those patients that seek our services when insurance coverage is unavailable.
In forming relationships with leading physicians and community partners, we continue to strive toward our common goal of bettering the health and physical well-being in Southern Arizona. We are actively involved in our communities through sponsorships and participation in a variety of events and activities. You can see us supporting local Southern Arizona school districts, fundraising for Youth on Their Own, volunteering with The Tucson Marathon, Ben's Bells Project, Shyann Kindness Program or as an official sponsor for the Nova Home Loans Arizona Bowl just to name a few.
Our team operates within a unique and collaborative ESOP model, where each person on our team of employees is an owner. This is special because it guarantees our team members all have a vested interest in the experience and success of each patient that enters our clinics. The profits generated by our team are invested back into our company and the communities we serve rather than being siphoned off to outside owners or corporate shareholders. We are invested in the success of every person we serve, including you.
Over the years we have both needed physical therapy after various injuries and surgeries. Recently we were referred to Athlon by Carl’s surgeon and Gail’s primary healthcare provider. The care that we’ve received at Athlon has been excellent. The big difference we see when comparing Athlon to other therapists we have visited is the atmosphere and attitude of the entire staff. When you walk in you are greeted with a smile at the front desk and after a couple of visits, everyone knows your name. They greet you with a smile, a wave and a “Hi”! You feel like a member of the Athlon family and less like another patient. All the therapists and assistants show genuine interest in helping you understand your treatment and achieving your goals to improve your way of life. Gail will need physical therapy again soon for a hip replacement. She has requested Athlon be her therapist after her surgery.
