MOTION named Official Physical Therapy Partner for Major League Rugby’s newest member
MOTION PT Group, a leading provider of physical, occupational and speech therapy, and Rugby United New York (RUNY) announced MOTION as a multi-year team sponsor and “Official Physical Therapy Partner” for RUNY, the newest member of Major League Rugby (MLR).
The partnership represents the first major sports sponsorship for MOTION in the U.S. and includes providing personalized physical therapy for RUNY players throughout their first three MLR seasons.
“It’s an honor to work with Rugby United New York, one of the most promising new franchises in American sports,” said MOTION PT Group Chief Clinical Director Michael Fox. “It’s an exciting step parlaying our vast experience working with rugby in New York and with Men’s Eagles, the U.S. Men’s National Rugby Team.”
Fox worked with Xavier High School’s rugby team with fellow alumnus and RUNY head coach Mike Tolkin. Tolkin went on to serve as head coach of the New York Athletic Club’s Rugby Super League and the U.S. Men’s National Rugby Team, bringing Fox with him and solidifying their partnership.
“Coach Tolkin and I have been working together for almost 30 years,” Fox said. “The opportunity to now work with him and Major League Rugby in our own backyard is a real honor for our MOTION team.”
“I am ecstatic to take on the role of head physical therapist for RUNY and develop a support team of therapists to assist with coverage,” said MOTION Director of Sports Medicine Services Ethan Burger. “RUNY embodies New York and unity, and we will put forth our best efforts to keep the lads in one piece!”
MOTION therapists will provide onsite services to the RUNY players at all games and practices as well as at their flagship MOTION Sports Medicine facility in midtown Manhattan.
“We are proud to welcome MOTION as the official physical therapy partner of the RUNY team,” said James English, GM for Rugby United New York. “MOTION is an ideal partner, offering us clinical expertise in rugby fitness and injury prevention as well as access to cutting-edge sports rehabilitation technology and equipment.”
RUNY players have access to MOTION’s groundbreaking sports rehabilitation technology such as TRAZER®, with interactive testing and training programs, and AlterG®, an Anti-Gravity Treadmill™ allowing players to move without pain or interference to natural gait mechanics.
RUNY’s season runs through June, with the first home game on March 15 at MCU Park in Coney Island.

Hand Therapy Services in Brooklyn, New York
The hand is made up of an intricate network of muscles, ligaments, bones, joints, and tendons, all working together to allow for functionality. Even a small issue in one of these areas can compromise the integrity of the entire hand and may require hand therapy in Brooklyn to correct. At MOTION, we want to help our patients remain at full strength throughout their lives. If you find yourself dealing with an issue in your hand, make sure our team is the first one you call for help.
Common Ailments Of The Hand
There are no shortages of ailments or injuries a person’s hand may face. As experts in this area of care, our team at MOTION can utilize hand therapy in Brooklyn to fix the problem you’re currently dealing with, so you can get back to your everyday activities without pain. Some of the common ailments are team can help with include:
MCP Sprains: An MCP sprain typically happens to the collateral ligaments on either side of the joint. The ligaments surrounding the knuckles are the ones affected.
Thumb Collateral Ligament Injuries: This type of injury typically occurs when the thumb is hit with a brute force that causes it to bend backward. Doing so causes the collateral ligament to move outside its normal range of motion, leading to a sprain.
Finger Sprains: Each finger contains a network of ligaments and joints that allow movement to occur. When these areas are pushed outside of their normal range of motion, they can become sprained, impairing the ability for the fingers to move correctly.
Hyperextended Finger: A hyperextension of the finger occurs either at the knuckle or at the tip of the finger. Much like with a sprain, this injury occurs when these areas of the finger are pushed past their normal range of motion.
