ANTHONY BUONAMICI, ATC

As sports medicine outreach liaison, Anthony connects athletes of all ages in the community with injury prevention information and specialty services offered by AMITA Health.

He completed his undergraduate education at Aurora University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in athletic training and competed in NCAA D-III baseball during all four years. He also completed an extensive research project focusing on effective strategies for preventing shoulder and elbow injuries in throwing athletes.

Following his college education, Anthony was a work conditioning/workers’ compensation director for ATI Physical Therapy, working with a variety of injured workers in Chicago's southwest suburbs, creating individualized treatment plans to help the injured return to work. Before coming to AMITA Health, Anthony was also a worker’s compensation mentor for Athletico Physical Therapy, covering most of Illinois.

HEALTHY ATHLETES ARE THE BEST ATHLETES

Focused on sports-related injury prevention, the AMITA Health Orthopedics Institute works directly with coaches, trainers, parents and athletes of all ages to achieve a higher level of performance on and off the field.

If you are facing a sports injury, the sports medicine doctors, surgeons and rehabilitation therapists of the AMITA Health Orthopedics Institute have deep expertise treating sports-related injuries, from common to complex. We are also home to the AMITA Health Sports Medicine Outreach Program, where our Sports Medicine Outreach Liaisons will coordinate your care and provide access to a range of AMITA Health specialty services as well as injury prevention education.
