Dr. Ari Pouya is the new Physical Therapy Director at OSS.

With over ten years of experience, Dr. Pouya joins OSS so he can continue to deliver exceptional patient care with an exceptional team of physical therapists.

Dr. Pouya is focused on the patients. He not only enjoys socializing with his patients and peers, but he is laser focused on helping each patient improve his/her musculoskeletal health and move pain free. He says, “No two days are the same since every patient is unique”. Outside the therapy gym, he continuously builds his skills by working on new certifications and developing training to improve the care standards for physical therapy.

Dr. Pouya has this advice for OSS patients: “Don’t wait to get treatment. The sooner you can address a musculoskeletal issue the easier it is to fix. I always ask people, if you chipped your tooth would you wait for it to decay before seeking treatment? Injuries to your body are the same, don’t let your body decay and then get treatment. Start now!”
