The San Francisco 49ers and WellStrong announced on Tuesday a partnership with West Coast Sports Institute (WCSI) of San Jose to open a second 49ers-branded physical therapy and sports rehabilitation center. Under the direction of 49ers team physician Anthony Saglimbeni, WCSI takes an active approach to injury prevention and treatment for sports-related injuries by aspiring athletes and weekend warriors of all ages and skill levels.
"Dr. Saglimbeni has been providing his expert care to our 49ers players for years now, so we are proud to align our brand with WCSI," said Paraag Marathe, President of 49ers Enterprises and 49ers Executive Vice President of Football Operations. "The success of our initial location in Monterey has shown that there is considerable demand for professional-grade physical therapy across the state, and we are glad to expand our network of physicians and trainers to the South Bay."
WellStrong is an innovator in medical management services including orthopedic, sports physical therapy, wellness, and prevention. The partnership between the 49ers and WellStrong launched in September 2017 with Monterey Spine & Joint.
"The 49ers organization has proven to be a committed community partner with us in Monterey, and we are excited to be expanding into the South Bay," said Scott Leggett, Co-founder of WellStrong. "Access to the professional expertise of their training and medical staff has been an invaluable resource to our partners and a vital asset to achieving our shared objectives of providing high-quality health services with affordable costs."
WCSI features a team of licensed physicians, professional, athlete-quality physical therapy, certified athletic trainers, medical assistants, therapists, and administrative staff dedicated to bringing optimal health care to existing and future patients.
"The combination of the outstanding physicians at WSCI with the talented injury prevention and recovery practices of the 49ers will be a great service to people throughout the South Bay," said Dr. Saglimbeni, Founder of West Coast Sports Institute. "The complete San Francisco 49ers physical therapy experience and state-of-the-art clinic and exercise space at WSCI are unlike anything available in the region."
