Jake Awender


Jake earned his doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) from Northern Illinois University. He was then accepted to a Residency program in Minneapolis to complete an extra year of study to specialize in Sports Medicine Injuries, earning his board-certification as a Sports Clinical Specialist (SCS) upon graduation. He then acquired his certification as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

Prior to opening his Physical Therapy clinic in Algonquin, he was proud to work as the Longshots baseball team Physical Therapist from 2017-2019. As their team PT he provided on-field injury coverage and managed the evaluations and treatments for all injured players and coaches. He also developed and taught their strength and conditioning program for young and beginner-level athletes to prevent and reduce the risk of injury.

Now working with Team Rehabilitation, he is able to continue doing what he loves the most – managing and preventing the injuries for people of all ages. Passionate about raising the standards of care in the sports rehab world, he prides himself on providing the highest level of evidence-based intervention whether in his clinic or in the training room.
