Achieve Orthopedic Rehabilitation Institute
Achieve Orthopedic Rehabilitation Institute (AORI) is a specialized out-patient physical therapy practice focusing on clients with orthopedic and neuromuscular problems. We especially take pride in working with those patients with persistent pain and chronicity who haven’t gotten better yet.
Manual Therapy & Exercise are the clinical tools we use. AORI clinicians add a scientific based Pain Science/Neurobiology clinical reasoning viewpoint to all our patient’s movement problems. A Bio-psychosocial perspective compliments this process, often providing the basis for consistent patient improvement in function, and return to family, work, athletics and satisfaction.
