“It is a privilege to work with the University of Rhode Island basketball programs and their athletes,” said Michael Nula, owner of Elite Physical Therapy. “Our physical therapists really enjoy helping URI student-athletes, and we’re so happy that they have responded so well. The athletes have been able to achieve a high level of physical health, prevent common injuries, and accelerate their recovery process during their busy season. We look forward to continuing to work with the entire program and the University, and support them in achieving their goals.”

Supporting the men’s and women’s basketball programs allows Elite Physical Therapy to promote and inspire health and serve as a successful solution to musculoskeletal problems.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have Elite Physical Therapy expanding their services and working with our team this year,” said Rhode Island women’s basketball Head Coach Daynia La-Force. “Dan and his staff saw incredible benefits of working with the Elite staff and we are thrilled they are able to provide for both basketball programs for this coming season.”
