Longtime Champaign resident and physical therapist manages new facility
Champaign, IL (Vocus) May 24, 2010 -- AthletiCo Physical and Occupational Therapy announces the relocation of their Champaign-Urbana physical therapy center to 2040 South Neil Street in Champaign, Illinois. The new facility is located in the Hillcrest Center across the street from the Worden Martin car dealership, a mile and a half south of downtown. Patients will benefit from the facility’s larger working space, street-level entry, and convenient parking with designated handicapped spaces.
The center will continue to be managed by Rebecca Nef-Heffernan, MHS, PT, who has been a practicing physical therapist in the Champaign-Urbana area for the past 18 years. Nef-Heffernan and her husband are long-time residents of the area, where they have raised their two children and both built long-standing careers. Her husband, Jim Heffernan, is the head wrestling coach for the Fighting Illini.
“It is very rewarding to be able to work for such a well-established company as AthletiCo and utilize my physical therapy skills to help members of my own community recover from injuries and stay healthy,” says Nef-Heffernan. “Every day I am excited to come to work and love interacting with my patients. I look forward to working with local physicians to provide quality orthopedic rehabilitation to the Champaign-Urbana community.”
AthletiCo Champaign-Urbana provides physical therapy, orthopedic rehabilitation, sports medicine, work rehabilitation, and athletic training outreach. In addition, the relocation will allow the physical therapy center to provide Functional Capacity Evaluations, which will offer area physicians, case managers, and employers an effective option to transition injured workers from disability to function and employment.
