Ivy Rehab Announces Affiliation with NFL Alumni Association
Ivy Rehab is pleased to announce an exciting new affiliation with the New York/New Jersey chapter of the NFL Alumni Association to provide best-in-class treatment to elite athletes who have retired from the National Football League.
“Our extensive background in treating high-level competitors, paired with our reputation for providing exceptional experience and patient outcomes has solidified this affiliation with the NFL Alumni Association,” said Troy Bage, Ivy Rehab Chief Operating Officer. “We are ready and equipped to provide seamless access for care along with the ability to meet the varying needs of retired NFL players.”
The Ivy Rehab team has experienced firsthand the unique issues an athlete faces after having a physically demanding career of this caliber. Even well into retirement, athletes have the potential to face lingering issues that need to be addressed. This affiliation allows Ivy Rehab to provide the comprehensive care these former players need in one convenient place.
“We’re excited to partner with the Ivy Rehab team and provide an invaluable service to our chapter members,” said NFLA NY/NJ Chapter President Roman Oben.
After a career in the NFL, many players are left with adverse challenges as a result of being so physically demanding of their bodies for so long. Helping these players live their best life well into retirement is Ivy’s main priority.
“The passion and exceptional patient experience that Ivy Rehab brings to the physical therapy space will complement the NFL Alumni Association’s dedication to its members,” explains Brian Martin, CSCS, Ivy Rehab Director of Business Development. “Our unparalleled levels of expertise will allow us to provide best in class physical therapy services, enhancing the lives of retired NFL players and their families. We couldn’t be more excited for this new endeavor.”
Ivy is honored to serve an organization with the reputation and prestige such as the NFL Alumni Association, providing the seamless access to care that former players and their families need.
About NFL Alumni Association
Founded in 1967, the NFL Alumni Association was formed to serve its retired player members and their families. The association’s primary purpose is to engage former players through a fraternal structure supporting their ability to live better in retirement. Part of that mission is to build career opportunities, social engagements, and social responsibility. Social responsibility led to the primary mission of Caring for Kids, Caring for our Own, and Caring for our Community. The association’s 41 Chapters gather for quarterly meetings to assess the well-being of the membership, talk football, and develop charitable initiatives to support and sustain our missions. Historically, the Chapter leaders’ philanthropic and charitable efforts allow the association to donate an average of 1.5 million dollars to children’s charities within the local chapter areas.
