Soccer season is right around the corner, making it the perfect time to announce our new partnership with Phoenix Rising FC. “An affiliation with the Phoenix Rising has been on our radar for some time, and on behalf of the entire Foothills team, we are thrilled to be entering into this partnership,” said Chief Executive Officer Mike Basten, PT, DPT. “Foothills Sports Medicine Physical Therapy has its foundation in working with athletes, both at a professional and amateur level, and we believe this relationship will further our mission to be involved in the community.”

Throughout the 2018 season, Foothills Sports Medicine Physical Therapy will be providing physical therapy and athletic training coverage for the entire Phoenix Rising team. Chief Experience Officer Bruce Watson, PT notes “We welcome the opportunity to partner with the Phoenix Rising Football Club to care for their athletes. We believe physical therapists, athletic trainers, physicians and club leadership working together on injury prevention, athletic performance and recovery from injury is the gold standard, whether for professional or amateur athletes.”

Getting our patients back to doing what they love drives our actions on a daily basis. This is the foundation of why we do what we do as a company and as a profession. However, we believe our efforts extend beyond the walls of our clinics and into the community and we strive to be heavily involved in sports medicine outreach at youth, amateur or professional levels. Here’s to a successful and healthy season for the Phoenix Rising team and our sports medicine partnership.
