Select Physical Therapy will provide USA Triathlon members in the state of Colorado, and particularly the Colorado Springs area, with outpatient rehabilitation services to aid in performance, recovery and overall wellness.
Select Physical Therapy’s services will be made available to all Colorado-based USA Triathlon elite and amateur athletes — including members of the U.S. National Team and Toyota U.S. Paratriathlon National Team who spend time training at the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.
“Select Physical Therapy is proud and excited to serve the coaches, members and elite athletes of USA Triathlon,” said Chris Bellmar, P.T., Vice President of Operations for Select Physical Therapy in Colorado. “Our licensed clinical team has a terrific track record of treating athletes of all levels — high school, collegiate, professional and weekend warriors — and is committed to staying current on the latest trends and education to provide superior, industry-leading care. We look forward to supporting USA Triathlon with their health initiatives and are confident we will complement their first-class caliber program.”
“USA Triathlon is proud to partner on a local level with one of the nation’s top sports medicine and physical therapy providers to serve our Colorado members,” said Chuck Menke, USA Triathlon Chief Marketing Officer. “By maintaining mobility and physical health, taking a preventative approach and focusing on proper rehabilitation when injuries do occur, triathlon can be a lifelong sport for many. Select Physical Therapy’s expertise with athletes of all ages and competitive levels gave us confidence that the company will be an ideal fit for our diverse multisport family.”
Through the partnership, USA Triathlon and Select Physical Therapy will collaborate to engage with Colorado Springs-area triathlon clubs as part of club activities and meetings. (Note: all gatherings are currently on hold in the state of Colorado due to the COVID-19 pandemic.)
