Jim Sorgi, co-founder of ProTeam Tactical Performance and a former Indianapolis Colts football player, helps police officers and firefighters get the same excellent injury treatment that professional athletes receive.
“ProTeam Tactical Performance was a business started by Joey Vandever and myself about a year and a half ago,” Sorgi says. “As former professional athletes, myself with the Indianapolis Colts and Joey with the St. Louis Cardinals, we understand the importance of treating injuries as soon as possible or preventing them before they occur. We believe that our tactical professionals, like firefighters and police officers, should have access to the same quality of care as professional athletes.”
ProTeam provides durable medical equipment, priority physician access, personalized recovery solutions and preventative fitness initiatives.
“Firefighters and police officers put their lives on the line for us every day, so it’s an honor to work with them to help them be at their best,” Sorgi says. “We initially partnered with the Indianapolis Fire Department, placing a dedicated location within their headquarters. We have since added a location in the Pacers Athletic Center at Grand Park in Westfield, where we work with other municipalities, both police and fire. We are excited to announce that additional locations and partnerships will be coming in the very near future.”
As soon as a first responder is injured, the staff at ProTeam provides the treatment needed.
“With priority physician access and our partnership with OrthoIndy, we can start addressing an injury right away,” Sorgi says. “With all of the doctors and physical therapists on the same ProTeam Tactical team, information is quickly shared to provide the best care and the most thorough treatment plan.”
ProTeam uses a technology called DARI Motion.
“It’s the only FDA-cleared motion health solution that allows us to get a complete evaluation of the musculoskeletal data of a first responder in about ten minutes,” Sorgi says. “First responders are hard on their bodies. With the DARI Motion technology, we can be proactive to prevent injury and make them feel better now.”
Sorgi believes the client treatment at ProTeam Tactical Performance is truly unique.
“Our fixed-cost model maximizes savings across the board, while reducing days lost and providing the very best care to our tactical professionals,” he says. “We have been able to help firefighters return to work an average of five days earlier, while providing an overall cost savings of over 35%.”
The Indianapolis Colts drafted Sorgi in 2004, and he served as a backup quarterback for Peyton Manning.
“I really enjoyed being part of an amazing team,” Sorgi says. “It was hard work and it was hard on my body, but it was right where I wanted to be. I think that’s why I identify so much with these men and women. They’re a part of a team and if they get hurt or injured, they just want to get back out there with their team.”
