DAHLIA FAHMY, PT, MBA, FAFS

Dahlia Fahmy is the owner and founder of Sports and Ortho Physical Therapy which was established in 2003. Her main goal for starting the practice was to give her patients the type of care that she felt was lacking in the Physical Therapy world, one that focused on providing one-on-one, manual-based therapy and functional exercises. Dahlia graduated from McGill University in Montreal, Canada in 1993 with a Bachelor's degree in Physical Therapy. She has since worked with college football, hockey, and soccer teams as well as semi-pro football teams.

Since graduating she has focused on perfecting her skills in Orthopedics and Sports Medicine and has taken several courses in Manual Therapy and Orthopedics as well as completing her Manual Therapy Certification through St. Augustine University. Most recently she has embarked on a journey to become a Fellow of Applied Functional Science, a title only held by less than 300 therapists in the world, making her a Movement Specialist and expert on biomechanics, allowing her to find the route of problem, not just treat the symptoms.

As a dedicated clinician she is determined to see every patient get results, feel good about their care, and return back to their normal lives as quickly as possible. As a practice owner her mission is to surround herself with an elite staff of caring and highly trained therapists. Her goal is to build a practice that is highly regarded in the Orthopedic community as well as the community in which the clinics' serve. Our hope is to also continue philanthropy and give back to the community that has rewarded us with their trust.
