Dr. Rori accomplishes this by combining her understanding of how the human body heals with her unique experiences in the world of lifting for competition and aesthetics. 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. Dr. Rori’s interest in perfecting the human body comes from her vast athletic and artistic career. Stemming from a young age, her appreciation of the human body began with the study of visual and performing arts, specifically the art of dance. Since she was a young child, Dr. Rori has taken the stage and performed on multiple levels as a dancer, triathlete, and as a competitive powerlifter for the last four years.
