"Listening and understanding where patients come from lets me create a unique program that they will enjoy."
Robert Mahlman, PT, DPT, OCS, is a board certified orthopedic clinical specialist and certified Schroth therapist who specializes in the treatment of various orthopedic injuries, along with scoliosis and concussion management. He serves as the Westport Site Lead. Prior to joining Performance, Rob completed a clinical affiliation with the United States Air Force at Kessler Air Force Base and worked with top military and civilian physical therapists to provide evidence-based care to our active-duty military, veterans and their dependents.
Rob enjoys being able to use his hands to help people, talking them through their problems and experiencing something new every day. He provides his patients with the knowledge, guidance and tools they need to understand their body and achieve their goals. By listening to each person and learning what they need, Rob creates a unique program aimed to not only help his patients recover but enjoy the physical therapy as well.
When he is not helping people move, Rob is doing it himself, going on hikes, mountain biking and using his GoPro as much as he can.
