Milwaukee Eastside center represents first AthletiCo facility to open across state lines
Milwaukee, WI (Vocus) December 14, 2009 -- AthletiCo, an Illinois-based provider of physical therapy and
occupational therapy, opens its 55th center at 2615 N. Downer Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The opening of
the Milwaukee Eastside facility marks AthletiCo’s first center outside of Illinois. AthletiCo Milwaukee
Eastside’s services include Physical Therapy, Orthopedic Rehabilitation, Work Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine,
and Orthotic Fabrication.
AthletiCo Milwaukee Eastside is located just blocks from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, south of
Sendiks Food Market and across from Café Hollander -- a convenient location for the Shorewood, Milwaukee,
and Whitefish Bay communities.
The opening of the Milwaukee Eastside facility has given AthletiCo the opportunity to transition Luis Rivera,
PT, ATC, COMT, PES, back to the area where he wanted to raise his family. A graduate of Marquette
University, Rivera will be serving as the facility manager of AthletiCo Milwaukee Eastside. Since graduating
eight years ago, Rivera has been working as a physical therapist and athletic trainer in Phoenix, Arizona. His
experience there gave him the opportunity to work with several professional organizations including the MLB,
NBA, PGA, and several major colleges including Arizona State University. Rivera looks forward to bringing his
expertise and experience to the Milwaukee community.
“Since attending Marquette, Milwaukee has always felt like home,” says Rivera. “The people are fun-loving and

that is committed to the health and wellness of their patients. Milwaukee couldn’t be a better city to benefit from
AthletiCo’s eighteen years of experience.”
