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 J. Chioccariello is bar none the best PT, period! I have seen him work with my husband’s complete shoulder replacement as well as with my meniscus repair. My mother now need PT and I would not consider taking her anywhere except to Carmine. Beyond his amazing knowledge and experience, he is thoughtful and considerate. I love the compassion that he shows everyone, no matter how old or how extensive the rehabilitation. His staff is also awesome, totally a reflection of Carmine’s management and mission. You are not going to get a “cookie-cutter” experience here. Carmine is 100% hands on which means you get his extensive knowledge and a much faster recovery time.

Carmine and his whole team are all outstanding! I highly recommend!! I went in for physical therapy as a conservative approach to treat long-term tendinitis in my elbow and subsequent shoulder pain from overcompensating. I had been dealing with this pain for over 2 years and had tried cortisone shots as well as following an exercise routine on my own, none of which helped. However, working with Carmine over the last 6 weeks has helped me dramatically! I have no pain in my elbow or shoulder, have been able to gain strength again, and I’m finally aware of the actions I was performing that were flaring up my pain. In addition to all of this, the environment is warm and friendly and fun! I felt like I became part of their work family, and I’m actually going to miss seeing them all!

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. I’m looking forward to continuing my treatment plan for a complete recovery. The staff is super nice also and very accommodating. I highly recommend their services for your physical therapy! You want be disappointed!

Carmine came highly recommended from my knee surgeon. Oh my goodness am I glad I picked him. He has a small suite and you get tons of personal attention between him and his staff. So I put my trust in Carmine and 4 1/2 weeks later I’m pain free and playing tennis! He gave me at home exercises to do. He answered honestly any and all questions that I had. He’s available via text as well for the quick questions. Not to mention that the same people that go for PT the same time as myself become this little family. It was great experience and I’d highly recommend him to anyone who needs PT!

I had surgery for a torn ACL in May of this year and was given high recommendations to see Carmine for physical therapy. I couldn’t be happier that I followed those recommendations. Since the beginning of my PT sessions, Carmine and his team have tailored my rehab around how my knee was recovering, encouraging me to listen to how my body was responding to exercises and not pushing harder than what my knee was willing to handle. That philosophy has led to great progress 3 months post-surgery. In addition to the confidence I have in Carmine’s practice, the culture he has built at his office is second to none. It is an incredibly friendly environment - Carmine and his team truly care about the folks they are helping recover from injury. Perhaps you shouldn’t enjoy PT as much as I have, but Carmine and his team make sessions something to look forward to and I have been grateful for that. I would highly recommend Carmine to anyone looking for a PT - you won’t be disappointed.

This is my second round with Carmine, albeit 20+ years apart. Carmine and his staff are the best. They treat you like family and get the job done. Very clear and concise explanations and demonstrations. They monitor you and your progress and easily pick up on things to help you or when something has suddenly caused a little discomfort. They adapt your rehab to you specific needs. Can’t say enough great things about them! Hope I never need them again, but comforting to know if I do, I’ll be in the best of care!
