In 2007 Atlanta Falcons Owner and CEO Arthur Blank's management and investment company launched a new business -- Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers -- that will bring professional-grade physical therapy and sports rehabilitation services to the public beginning this fall.
AMB Group, LLC, announced it had acquired retail space in Gwinnett County to operate the first in a series of Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers envisioned in Georgia.
The centers license the Falcons brand and make pro-quality physical therapy and sports rehabilitation services more easily accessible to athletes and non-athletes, from youth to seniors. The first center opened in October -- a 3,000-square foot, state-of-the-art facility located at [1180 Satellite Blvd. in Suwanee](http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=1180 Satellite Blvd. Suwanee, ga&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=30.461748,74.267578&ie=UTF8&ll=34.013343,-84.072104&spn=0.007773,0.018132&z=16&iwloc=addr).
North Gwinnett High School also named Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers its official provider of athletic training and physical therapy services.
"This is a tremendous opportunity to give the public the same quality of service the pros receive," AMB Group Business Development Director Dan Gordon said. "Being able to leverage the strength of the Falcons name and the club's expertise and experience will be a distinct advantage for us and for our patients. We're also investing in first-class talent, to be the employer of choice in the category; the best equipment and facilities; and a more comprehensive set of services than what you might typically find at a physical therapy center. We think that adds up to an unrivaled experience."
Each center offers outpatient physical therapy by licensed and certified physical therapists as well as industrial rehabilitation for workers injured on the job; injury prevention, to assist companies and individuals with programs to minimize injury; sports massage; fitness services; post-operative rehabilitation; and chronic pain management services. The centers will feature top-of-the-line rehabilitation and workout equipment. Conveniences such as reserved parking and easy access, extended hours and flexible scheduling are also planned.
"This concept is a natural extension of something we do well at the Falcons -- which is physical therapy and sports rehab -- and something we believe in and want to encourage in Georgia, which is wellness and fitness," Gordon said.
