Dr. Ghaffari

Dr. Alex Ghaffari received his B.S in Physical Therapy from Tehran University, located in Tehran, Iran, in 1980. He began his career with a variety of neurological and orthopedic patients as a lead therapist prior to moving to the United States in 1985.

He completed his graduate study in orthopedic and sport physical therapy and received a Master of Health Science Degree from the University of Indianapolis in Indiana in 1991.

While working for several national corporations in Atlanta, Georgia, he completed a post-graduate residency program in orthopedic manual therapy, and later completed his doctorate degree in Physical Therapy in 2002. Later, he followed the advice of his research faculty and completed an advanced post-doctoral fellowship training with an emphasis on Scientific Therapeutic Exercise as developed by Dr. Ola Grimsby and Ola Grimsby Institute (OGI) faculty members. Dr. Ghaffari uses the OGI model as a basis for choosing amongst therapeutic intervention options such as manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular reeducation and functional activities. 

Dr. Ghaffari has devoted his entire career to outpatient orthopedic physical therapy practice in metro Atlanta. He enjoys treating patients of all ages who suffer from acute and chronic neuromuscular dysfunction of the spine and extremities. Based on clinically relevant research, he performs an extensive initial evaluation and then uses advanced manual therapy techniques, postural training, therapeutic exercise, spinal manipulation, movement retraining, dry needling, patient education and home instruction to help his patients decrease their symptoms and improve their alignment and biomechanics, which ultimately leads to a healthier movement system in a short period of time.

Of equal importance is his focus on promoting health, nutrition and wellness as a means for improving quality of life for his clients and patients.  When not at work, Dr. Ghaffari can be found enjoying his home life with his wife and his physician daughter and son -in -law. He has a very active life and enjoys playing guitar, fitness walking, vegetarian cooking, reading, golfing, USC football, sports and learning new skills.
