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.”
AN IMPORTANT PART OF THERAPY
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.
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.”

Carmine is wonderful! I had knee meniscus surgery and he helped me recover very fast. He takes time to explain the therapy and goes out of his way to care for you. He is a very caring person and also knowledgeable in his trade. I would recommend it to anyone in need of therapy.

In February 2021 I took a bad fall after a workout and sustained a bimalleolar ankle fracture. Being in the medical profession myself, I know that once you come out of a successful surgery it is crucial to have the proper physical therapy rehab.; Especially so, when you were physically active prior to surgery and are eager about getting back in the game. In my case it's my love of Tennis, Hiking and Bicycling.. Many PT environments are designed to catered to the masses and give you a one size fits all routine. Not the case at Sports Injury & Physical Therapy . Carmine has been a tremendous help in customizing a step by step treatment plan at a doable pace to get me back on the courts. I highly recommend Carmine, he not only has the educational background combined with years of experience in his field, but also the gift of looking at the whole body. Not just the injured sight so he can help facilitate flexibility & strength needed to meet your desired goal. One session with Carmine and you will see he truly cares about his patients overall well being as he brings his hardy laugh, sense of humor and personal coaching style to every treatment. I am grateful for his help so far and decided to write this recommendation so others may get the PT help they need from Carmine as well. ......Victoria Paradise LMT, CNMT
