Physical therapists and office staff of Cary Physical Therapy recently attended advanced training for FOTO, an acronym for Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes. FOTO is a web-based patient assessment system which compares national outcomes in physical therapy. Cary Physical Therapy, a family-owned business for over 20 years, is part of a larger network of private practice clinics in the Chicago area.

"Being part of the Independent Network of Illinois Physical Therapists is the best of both worlds," says Deb Gulbrandson, owner of Cary PT. "We are all physical therapists and owners who value the communities in which we live. Our commitment to providing the highest quality of care to our patients is beyond compare. We know we are delivering the best services. With FOTO we can now demonstrate that in a completely objective way. We utilize a third party to compile our data and compare it to national outcomes."

"Cary Physical Therapy has always been innovative whether through the use of aquatic physical therapy, our strong Pilates program, or our affiliations with 5 major universities for student internships. Our therapists' skills and expertise allow patients to return to their former level of function and beyond. FOTO provides data to enable us to continue to grow in our commitment to our community."
