Carmine has an impressive career in sports rehabilitation spanning over 25 years of hands-on experience, extensive training, and education.


Since founding Sports Injury and Physical Therapy in 1994, Carmine’s worked with more than 10,000 patients including some of Tampa Bay’s premiere athletes helping them back to an active, healthy and productive lifestyle.


“At the center, the patient and therapist become a committed partnership dedicated to healing,” says Carmine. “I’m here hands-on every day, encouraging my patients and therapists as they move down the road to recovery. Seeing the dedication, comraderie, and the patient’s enthusiastic progress towards wellness is the best part of my job.”


“Provide dedicated, quality care and positive reinforcement for all patients.”


Before beginning the therapy program, patients get an easy-to-understand explanation of the evaluation and therapy process and how their program helps with injury or pain. 



Each patient’s program is based on three key elements: our evaluation; the doctor’s/therapist’s recommendations; and the patient’s needs/goals. As the patient progresses, his day-to-day treatment protocol is continually adjusted, as is the at-home therapy program.


Pain Relieving Modalities

The center uses a variety of the latest pain relief techniques such as manual mobilization, electrical stimulation, ultra sound, traction and iontophoresis.

Exercise Machines

Strengthening equipment and popular cardiovascular devices help the team match patient needs and abilities with recovery goals. The center incorporates equipment such as treadmills, elliptical machines, stairsteppers, upper and lower body bicycles and devices for balance and proprioceptive training.

Therapy Should Be Fun

The center provides educational charts, fitness and nutrition magazines, television and relaxing music to enhance the rehabilitation experience.

“Using the best tools is essential” says Carmine. “But the interpersonal component, positive reinforcement and constant encouragement, is equally important. We want our patients to enjoy their rehabilitation experience and get well at the same time. Patients are like our extended family. Many even become friends and keep in touch.”

  • After a rough time with illnesses and surgeries over a full year, I finally found someone who looked at the whole picture and gave me a strategy for recovering so much function and strength! Carmine listens, understands your goals, and creates a program for recovery. I actually enjoy my therapy time!

    Carmine, Haley, and Asia are the BEST! They have created a schedule of exercises to improve my core strength and support my back. Through my personalized program, I am building my strength and flexibility, thus relieving my back pain. I appreciate the individual attention and the friendly encouragement I am given. They have exceptional knowledge of the body, how to relieve pain, and what to do to help strengthen and encourage muscular healing, with a side of always being positive and helpful. I would recommend this place to my family and friends any day! The office is easy to get to and has plenty of parking space. The office environment is spotless, and the sports memorabilia on the walls add a nice personal touch to the decor. Did I mention that laughter is the best medicine? Well, you’ll find some of that there too!

    Absolutely the most professional, knowledgeable yet friendly medical related office I’ve ever been to. Carmine takes you where you are starting, is always honest in your progress and in what you can expect to realistically achieve. This is in a very supportive and encouraging way and I totally appreciated his realism. I can’t imagine a rehab practice being more successful. Carmine’s style treats each person and the case totally individually rather than here’s what’s being rehabilitated so do this…he takes all factors into consideration. Ditto to each person in his practice-knowledgeable warm and helpful. Many thanks!

  • I have had several injuries and physical therapist in the past. Beyond a doubt, Carmine and his staff are the best. Carmine is the right combination of a therapist, analyst, coach, motivator, and friend. They make it a point to constantly monitor your progress and modify your program to maximize your recovery. As a surgeon, I’m glad to have Carmine in the community for both my patients and myself.

    Love Carmines’ professionalism! He takes his time to talk with you and explain the nature of your injury and his game plan for recovery. I saw immediate improvement on Day 1.
