Sports Physical Therapy of NY Expands into East Amherst, NY

Buffalo, NY (May 17, 2016) – Sports Physical Therapy of NY (Sports PT), an Upstate New York physical therapy company, recently secured space at Hive Lifespan Center in East Amherst, where Body Dynamics (BDPT) was providing physical therapy services. The owner of Body Dynamics, physical therapist Jenna Calabrese-Vaeth, decided to join Sports PT this June, while continuing to provide physical therapy in the Hive space. Sports PT President and CEO Lynn Steenberg, Body Dynamics owner Jenna Calabrese-Vaeth, and Hive Lifespan founder Chris Salisbury announced the news today.

Sports PT is a growing privately owned physical therapy group with clinics spanning from Buffalo to Saratoga Springs. With the East Amherst addition and the upcoming Malta clinic opening in Saratoga County this summer, Sports PT will have a footprint of 12 clinics across Upstate NY.

Since Sports PT was founded 11 years ago, its mission has been to provide superior, personalized clinical care to patients and to stay innovative with wellness and prevention in healthcare. This transition with Jenna Calabrese-Vaeth and the Hive space is another step toward growing the wellness model with clinicians focused on excellence.

Lynn Steenberg, president and CEO of Sports PT, said, “This addition is very exciting because we promised to devote our efforts to the growth and development of Upstate NY. We have done just that by gaining an outstanding clinician in Jenna Calabrese-Vaeth and a beautiful facility with Hive Lifespan Center. We’ve had a strong presence in Western NY for many years, and this will allow us to serve the patients in East Amherst and expand collaborative programs with the Hive community. I am absolutely thrilled to have this opportunity and to develop a relationship with both Jenna and Hive Lifespan Center.”

When asked about the transition, Jenna Calabrese-Vaeth, owner of Body Dynamics, said, “This was a natural fit. Body Dynamics and Sports PT share similar values. I wanted to become part of a larger organization. Sports PT is a well-respected company that can provide additional professional opportunities for me and withstand some of the healthcare challenges that sole practitioners cannot face alone. I am very excited for this transition and to continue to treat patients at Hive Lifespan Center.”

Chris Salisbury, founder of Hive Lifespan Center, said, “Since its inception, the purpose of Hive Lifespan Center has been to provide the local residents with an honest fitness resource that is built around research and personalized results. Physical therapy services have been an integral part of this foundation, so joining forces with Sports PT will allow us to further strengthen a component that we are already extremely proud of. ”

With a growing focus on Upstate New York, Sports PT continues to carry out its mission as “the premier upstate provider of quality patient services in a positive, professional, and compassionate environment.”
