Meet the Owner

Antigone is a Sports Certified Specialist, currently working as the Director of Performance Therapy at The Edge in Glenview, IL. She is also an adjunct faculty member at Northwestern University, as well as, a tactical athlete specialist at O2X, where she speaks nationally to firefighters, law enforcement, and other government and military agencies on injury risk reduction. 

 

Antigone received her Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training in 2012, and her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2014 from Boston University College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences: Sargent College. She then completed the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Fellowship in Orthopedic Manual Therapy in 2017. Antigone is also a certified health care provider for World Rugby. 

Antigone is dedicated to providing evidence-based and patient-centered care to all age groups and demographics, but finds working with tactical athletes, the aging athlete, and patients in chronic pain the most professionally rewarding. She also works closely with local dentists to treat tempromandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD). 

 

Outside of the clinic, Antigone enjoys painting, singing and playing music, and cooking with her husband Brian. They have a daughter, Meli.

Anushree has a passion for working with a variety of athletes and enjoys the challenge of getting them back to their prior level of function. She has enjoyed attending and presenting at state and national conferences, and in her free time, you can find her cooking/baking new fusion recipes, reading a good book, or finding a new place to travel.

WHAT PATIENTS ARE SAYING

"My experience working with Antigone has been nothing short of amazing. After suffering a leg injury nearly ten years ago, I’ve worked with numerous physical therapists and doctors without any measurable improvement before finding her. My particular case is a challenging one and has not been easy to solve. She's the only therapist that didn’t give up on me and I’m happy to say that I’ve seen outstanding results. I’m able to do things that I haven’t done in 10 years and I’ll be forever grateful to Antigone for her dedication.”
