SHANE CHERICO

How did he come to Sports PT?
I chose to join the Sports PT team for a number of reasons. Clearly the patients come first, and not only do they strongly emphasize this inside the clinic, but outside the clinic there seems to be a large community presence as well. Also, they care about their staff, offering a variety of paths to success based on individual goals, and being named one of the best companies to work for certainly speaks volumes about the atmosphere at Sports PT.

  • Earned his doctorate from Stony Brook University in 2013.
  • Clinical specialties include post-surgical care especially shoulders, hips, knees and ankles, cervical and lumbar pains/strains, headaches, and balance impairments.
  • Clinical interests include post-surgical rehab, sports injuries, McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment for the Spine and Upper/Lower extremities, and manual therapy/joint mobilizations.

Favorite Part Of The Job:
Being a PT can be very rewarding for multiple reasons, but I love it when a returning patient requests to work with me again because they had a great experience during their prior rehab stint. I love educating my patients and giving them the tools necessary to recover from their current ailment(s) and learn how to prevent future episodes as well.

Other Interests:
Spending time with family and friends, exercising, being outdoors. I am also a big Dallas Cowboys fan and love football season!
