special emphasis on a "hands-on" approach to all of our patients.

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
