Our Mission

Larry Bertolino

At CTR our mission is to educate patients to make exercise a lifelong habit, to improve their function, and to live life to the fullest.

CTR's focus is on personalized care. Larry Bertolino takes great pride in his ability to provide individualized one-on-one care to all of his patients.

Larry treats everyone like family and this is the reason for his success. Anyone who has been treated at CTR (see Accolades) knows that his priority is to return his patients to a fully functional lifestyle.

After graduating from Stony Brook University, Larry worked in various facilities in New York, including orthopedic out-patient, sports medicine, Kinesio-Taping, sub-acute rehab and home care. These experiences were invaluable in learning to treat a large spectrum of patients and diagnoses.

Since moving to Sarasota, Larry worked at Sarasota Memorial Hospital first in the out- patient clinic and later at the Sports Medicine facility that the hospital opened on Clark Road. While working at the hospital and continuing to see private clients as well as home care clients, Larry opened his first practice in Englewood. 1½ years later he moved his practice to the Sarasota/Bradenton area. CTR has shown tremendous growth since its inception due to the wonderful clientele we have been privileged to work with.

In his spare time, Larry enjoys weight training, music and spending as much time with his family as possible.

CTR believes that optimum nutrition is important for the best positive outcomes. If your body is in a weakened and depleted state, it makes it so much more difficult to heal and be healthy.

Your body needs to have an optimum environment to get optimum results. This is why we have partnered with NutraMetrix, a company that offers pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements which are used by and highly endorsed by CTR Physical
