Achieve Orthopedic Rehabilitation Institute is independently owned by manual physical therapists. Owners Robert Johnson, P.T., M.S., OCS, and Ashraf Abdelhamid, P.T., D.P.T., M.S., OCS have over 40 years of combined patient care experience. Each one of our PT staff have specific and concentrated training in the application of manual therapeutic techniques to examine and treat neuro-musculoskeletal conditions of the spine and extremities.

Our unique clinical practice incorporates a combination of direct ’hands-on’ manual physical therapy with specific exercise (stretching / strengthening) and patient education to improve pain-free movements and empower our clients to progress and independently regain a more active/comfortable lifestyle.

Our clinics utilize only manual physical therapists. Each client establishes a ‘one on one’ relationship with their therapist who then carefully designs the treatment program and works directly with the patient to accomplish the appropriate goals. Individualized ‘hands-on’ care, specific exercise instruction and education about the underlying pathology is the hallmark to our unique practice.


Manual therapy
Specific, hands-on, treatment techniques to the joints and soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, nerves, etc.)







Exercise
After undergoing any injury, it is important to begin exercising as soon as possible to restore strength and range of motion. ACHIEVE begins your program by focusing on manual techniques and exercises specific to your injury.



Education
It is important to understand the basic reasons why a patient has pain and why it hurts to move. Education about injury helps to relieve some of the fears associated with painful movement and is a strong piece of the rehabilitation process at Achieve.
