The Movement for Life Team was awarded the 2012 Jane L. Snyder National Private Practice of the Year Award. This award is granted annually by the Private Practice Section (PPS) of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). It is given to recognize colleagues who have made outstanding and innovative contributions to the physical therapy profession and in support of private practice physical therapy.
This honor is the result of the cumulative efforts of Movement for Life. We are enormously proud of the people that come together every day to support, promote, and provide physical therapy services to the communities that we have the opportunity to serve. “With all these remarkable people we’ve embodied four key points in our vision – to recruit, retain, and reward the best people; to provide cutting edge service; to expand and grow our people, our company, our services, and our facilities; and to do it all through efficient and effective communication and teamwork,” said Jim Glinn, Jr., founder of Team Movement for Life, as he accepted the award.
“The bar for community service was set very high by Dr. Jane Snyder; and the Movement for Life clinics are active members of their communities. They partner with local high schools to provide athletic training services to their students. They’re involved in community outreach programs and support many charitable organizations through community fundraising events,” said the award presenter.
At Athlon Physical Therapy, Movement for Life is everything we do. Improving and enhancing the lives of our team and the communities we serve. We believe that we can change more lives together than we can alone. We love what we do. We love helping people. We love providing Movement for Life.
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.
