One year ago, JAG Physical Therapy, which offers care for orthopedic and sports injuries, merged with Sleepy Hollow Physical Therapy, a staple in the community for about 30 years.
Since setting up in the Amenta Building at 245 North Broadway, where it recently doubled its space and updated its equipment, JAG has striven to have a presence in the community as a valuable resource for residents.
“We try to give back. The community is how we are able to succeed and achieve,” said Clinical Director Tom Protopapas, who led the Sleepy Hollow facility before relocating to Hawthorne last month, changing places with fellow Clinical Director Ashley Kieltyka.
“The company was built on being a resource for the community. If you have an injury and don’t know where to go, we can tell you,” Protopapas said. “We try to do everything we can to help everyone. I like to think we do things a step above.”
JAG Physical Therapy President and CEO John Gallucci, Jr. explained on the company’s website why the “JAG Method” makes a difference.
“We treat every patient just as a professional athlete or a VIP should be treated,” he stated. “Based on experiences with high-end athletes, we believe that everyone should be treated in the same fashion. It doesn’t matter if you’re a multi-million dollar baseball player or a painter trying to get up and down a ladder without pain, everyone deserves the same treatment.”
JAG has 17 locations: 13 in New Jersey, one in New York City and three in Westchester. It accepts most insurances and also offers self-pay rates. For further information, visit www.jagpt.com.
