Physical Therapy Care
PhysioPartners was founded in 2000, originally by Angela Wilson Pennisi as Lakeshore Sports Physical Therapy, PC. To reflect the many ways in which the clinic has grown in programs and specialty services, the practice was rebranded as PhysioPartners in 2016. In the early years, Dr. Pennisi worked in solo practice, always with an emphasis on one-on-one, individualized care. This laser focus on her patients contributed to Dr. Pennisi's ability to design treatment plans that comprehensively addressed movement dysfunction, as well as treat each patient's physical limitations.
As the practice grew, she engaged with other physical therapists interested in developing advanced clinical skills and has personally mentored several members of our staff from early on in their careers. Today, two of PhysioPartners' staff are board-certified in orthopedic physical therapy and another is board-certified in neurologic physical therapy. In 2020, Dr. Jennifer Hobson's practice joined as PhysioPartners Renaissance CranioFacial Group. In 2022, Dr. Joseph Ascher partnered with PhysioPartners in the opening of the Glenview clinic.
As health care moves towards delivering higher value services at a lower cost, patients are becoming more selective in choosing a physical therapist who will take the time to understand the cause of their problems, address their injuries in a comprehensive manner and prevent costly and painful complications in the future. PhysioPartners remains committed to helping our communities live life with confidence by developing the expertise of our staff, delivering results for our patients and driving the profession forward.
