Since 2019, MOTION PT Group (MOTION) has been a part of the Rugby New York family and returns as a partner for the 2023 season.
The two sides agreed on a one-year deal to make MOTION the Official Physical Therapy Partner of Rugby New York. MOTION will provide physical therapy treatment for all Rugby New York athletes in the off-season, pre-season, and during the Major League Rugby season. Rugby New York players will gain access to MOTION’s sports rehabilitation technology and in-clinic services.
Playing a physically demanding sport over the course of 16 games means our players must be in the best shape possible. The physical therapists at MOTION have proven to be a vital part of our success and helped keep the team in-form during last season’s MLR Championship run. “MOTION has a deep history in caring for elite athletes and rugby has been at the heart of that passion. We have been keeping RNY players healthy since their very first practice, and we are proud to be an integral part of their continued success as we prepare for another victorious season,” says Mike Fox, PT, SCS, Chief Medical Officer at MOTION PT Group.
“We are thrilled to continue this long-standing partnership and looking forward to having the MOTION team support us as we build on the foundation of last season's success,” said Ric Salizzo, CEO of Rugby New York.
