Daniel J. O'Connor Physical Therapist PT
Upon graduating from the University of Illinois at the Medical Center in June of 1977 with a degree in Physical Therapy, Dan worked in various outpatient settings. The desire to provide the best possible individualized, one-on-one treatment for people with orthopedic conditions, motivated him to establish Sportho Physical Therapy, Ltd., in the spring of 1983.
Dan's unwavering commitment to providing the best possible care to those in need of physical therapy, remains his number one priority. With this goal in mind, Dan has continued with post-professional education, in order to stay abreast of new techniques, which would expedite the rehabilitation process. Additionally, Dan invested in the expansion of Sportho Physical Therapy, Ltd., in overall physical size to include the Aquatic and Work Conditioning Wings, as well as, state-of-the-art equipment.
"Though I have been practicing physical therapy since 1977, I am as passionate and devoted to those in need of physical therapy as I was when I entered the profession and treated my first patient. I remain very active in patient care and enthusiastic about the benefits of physical therapy in relation to the restoration of function in the spring of 1983. In 2014, I chose to join an excellent organization that would allow me to continue to practice Physical Therapy the way I think it was meant to be. We became a franchisee with Fyzical Therapy and Balance Centers. We can now work on builiding our business without compromise. Because we have been able to achieve, what I feel, are remarkable results through the use of Aquatics and because I want to be able to offer our form of therapy to the members of our community, we are now Fyzical Therapy and Balance Centers - Chicago."
