Meet Chad Cardillo, PT

Chad Cardillo, PT - Sauquoit, Utica, South Utica, NY“I was always fascinated by the human body and how it works. I started competing in sports at age 5 and lifting weights at age 9. I was always interested in physical conditioning, athletics and health sciences, and I wanted to help people who were ill or injured. That’s why I went into physical therapy and opened my own practice. Most injuries can be ‘fixed.’ It’s my job to help patients achieve their maximum functional outcome. With my help, they should be able to return to the activities they love. I take pride in helping them do this.

“I feel the first few visits are the most important. My patients need to respect my knowledge and trust my directives. Educating patients about sports injuries or athletic requirements helps with this. I enjoy the trust my patients have in me. It feels good to see the progress my patients make during the course of their rehab or watch an athlete get stronger, faster or just return to their sport.”
