Ari earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from Columbia University. Prior to that, he attended Syracuse University where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Health and Exercise Science with a minor in Middle Eastern Studies. During his studies, he gained valuable knowledge and experience in treating individuals with orthopedic and sport injuries.
Ari completed clinical rotations in both outpatient and inpatient settings in Seaford, NY, Bridgeport, CT, and New York, NY. His experiences include outpatient orthopedics, return to sport protocols, post-operative care, cardiac rehab, and neurological rehab. Ari’s professional interests include working with adolescent, adult, and geriatric patients in need of sport injury and orthopedic treatments. He uses a collaborative approach of manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, and patient education to return patients to their pain free prior level of function. Ari’s passion for physical therapy comes from working at a PT clinic and observing the benefits of vestibular rehabilitation.
Outside of the clinic, Ari enjoys playing basketball, soccer, going for runs, hiking, traveling, and is an avid skier in the winter. He’s also an adventurous eater and is always excited to try new foods.
