Inspiring Conversations with Greg Judice of Judice Sports & Rehab

Today we’d like to introduce you to Greg Judice.

Hi Greg, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Fueled by a passion that everyone should be able to spend their time as they want without limitations, I was first introduced to the world of physical therapy when I was a child. At the age of eleven, I sustained a shoulder injury while pitching for a competitive, traveling baseball team. The injury limited my ability to pitch as I grew older, impacting my ability to play the game and the position I loved to play.

I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science from Saint Louis University and my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the same distinguished institution. Additionally, I pursued specialized training in the area of orthopedics, graduating from SLU-SSM Health Physical Therapy Orthopedic Residency Program and earning my Orthopedic Clinical Specialty certificate. This program trained me through work in a therapy clinic, the study of literature on current practice and allowed for frequent collaboration and mentoring time with current specialists and experts in the field.

Initially, my idea was to focus on providing physical therapy to injured children in an effort to help them to return to the sports that they love. However, I found enjoyment working with patients of all ages who are dealing with orthopedic conditions, which resulted in a passion for working with adults as well.

I enjoy being able to show people that they matter and I’m motivated to demonstrate to my patients how much I care about their health and success. This passion for helping others inspired my idea for a practice that provides only one-on-one treatments so that my patients get my full attention with every session.

Despite most frequently working with adults, I have still not completely left the world of athletics. I have a passion for working with throwers and overhead athletes, particularly baseball players, doing both injury prevention and rehabilitation. I have worked as a coach for a youth baseball team, presented safety presentations to players, parents, and other coaches on the topic of pitching and throwing mechanics, and have provided private pitching lessons to young pitchers in the area.

I am also passionate about working with CrossFit athletes. There are a lot of stresses that CrossFitters put their body through and I am uniquely qualified to help them achieve the results they are looking for without limitation.

I’m proud to include that we won the STL Mag A-List award for Top Physical Therapy practice in 2020. While 2020 was a crazy year for all of us, it’s nice to see our hard work, doing things the right way and taking care of people how they deserve really paid off.

When I am not working, I enjoy disc golf, pyrography, woodworking, homebrewing, and spending time with my wife and three dogs.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Of course not! The St. Louis market is very challenging, as there are so many corporate PT practices around the city. They are the easiest ones to find, so often they are mistaken for the highest quality of care. Because of this, most people have only ever received sub-par care and they have no way of knowing it can be better. As a small business, it is harder to be heard in the crowded market, but that will not stop us! Providing quality care is so important to us and we really want to focus on making connections and educating our clients on how our personalized approach is better. We want everyone to know they can and should expect more from their physical therapy, and we can provide it for them.

We’ve been impressed with Judice Sports & Rehab, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We really focus on getting to know our clients as people. They are not just a shoulder injury or a knee surgery. We take the time to understand their biggest concerns and understand why they’re wanting to feel better.

My personal specialty is helping people with shoulder issues. With my history as a baseball player, whose career was limited by an injury, my passion has always been to help people with shoulder issues. Whether someone has a frozen shoulder or tendonitis, I just want to help! The best is when I get the chance to help someone work through an issue that helps them avoid surgery.

I hear a lot of the same complaints coming from patients who have worked with other PT practices before. They tell me they don’t get enough time with the therapist, they don’t feel heard or understood, they work with different therapists at each visit, and they just don’t get better. These things are not the case in our practice! A patient in our office will consistently receive the therapist’s undivided attention for 60 minutes, will receive a personalized plan of care aimed at their goals, and will see the same therapist with every visit. We are proud to say that we are set up to provide the care and attention each patient truly deserves and we get results!
