Current Role Working with Athletes

Dr. Rori combined her professional credentials, personal experience and passion for helping people achieve their unthinkable to open Progressive Rehab & Strength in 2015. 

She gives clients a unique, holistic perspective – the expert eye of a doctor of physical therapy, coach and competitive athlete. Her combination of expertise enables her to assess client movement patterns and identify causes of pain or injury getting to the real root of a problem that may have been misdiagnosed or mistreated previously. She then gives clients often simple corrections and techniques that allow them to overcome their limitations, unlock their potential and progress in their training and life.

Her progressive, practical approach has helped elite athletes come back from injuries, weekend warriors realize ambitious goals and people of all ages move more freely and comfortably.

Professional Philosophy

Dr. Rori’s philosophy is to provide and educate her clients with evidence-based rehabilitation techniques specific to their unique injuries and competitive goals, and to return them to training as soon and as safely as possible while reducing the risk of re-injury.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.
