Achieve Ortho Sport


Traditional outpatient orthopedics is a repeated process of unsupervised activity, minimal hands-on care due to the actual and time cost of application, and staff that circulates depending on the day. We pride ourselves in personal attention, through each step of the process. The expanded time with a PT for manual techniques, the guided progression of exercise, the feedback in motion and biomechanics, and strength as well as the education and knowledge sharing is unmatched by any other. You literally feel the difference, every day.


Achieve is involved with more than 40 community organizations, groups, schools, gyms, studios and teams. Our model is simple- working from the patient upwards to medical care, instead of simply waiting for patients to arrive. We are involved from injury prevention stages, to strength and sports performance enhancement. We are imbedded in groups and teams, providing education for parents, athlete, coaches, and the community, with the most recent research and concepts brought locally, and knowledge sharing to make you not only health now, but to embody the lifestyle of health and wellness for years to come.


Your time is important to you, your health is even more valuable. Excellent care comes with a perfect combination of education, question answering, path to health guidance (whether pre- or post-surgery of return to sport or activity), and manual techniques to heal and reset the body. All of this performed with the highest level of professionalism, in a timely fashion, and with personal goal planning.


Our therapists are some of the most certified in the Midwest. Advanced manual therapy techniques, biomechanics of movement analysis, and specialist certification that are manual based and sport-specific allow us to provide you with the best care- no matter the patient’s age, injury, activity or sport.


Our staff prides ourselves in our deeply rooted community connections, from the suburbs to the city. We perform hundreds on injury screens each year, connecting the patient with the best medical team possible to fit their needs that vary from location, to personality, outcome, and specialty. Our constant back and forth communication with your medical team, coaches, parents, and more lead to seamless progress in your rehab and return to activity.


The Achieve staff is made up of a vast combination of professionals, including Physical Therapists, Athletic Trainers, Certified Personal Trainers and Strength and Conditioning coaches, USAT, and USATF professionals, Exercise Physiologists, Club Sports and Community Outreach Specialists, PT clinical techs, office managers, billing experts, and more. Our teamwork outside of our four walls includes nutrition, sport psychology, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, pilates/yoga, sports performance trainers, cross trainers and more. No one achieves greatness standing alone, or through one method of treatment.


Our athletic expertise spans over many sports, although over half of our population is a mix of performing arts medicine and endurance sports. Not only are we physical therapists but we are former national level, NCAA, professional, and elite age group athletes as well as coaches, choreographers, and more. Our staff is comprised of some of the most well respected people in their fields, connected to national organizations and governing bodies, as well as developmental local programs.


Come, see the difference. Feel the energy. See the passion we have for our jobs. Experience the hands-on difference for yourself. Realize how you belong no where else.

Achieve Orthopedic Rehabilitation Institute Sports Medicine is an outpatient orthopedic clinic, focusing on an active population, ranging from kids to adults; from the playground collar bone fracture to the Professional Triathlete; from joint replacements, to Elite Gymnasts; from muscle strains to posture concerns. We are a rare combination of providing the benefits of manual therapy techniques with the active side of sport and orthopedic excellence driven from exercise, strength, flexibility, and biomechanics.
