Arianna Martinez received her Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology and Minor in Psychology from California State University, San Marcos. While there, she was a member of the Cross Country and Track and Field teams, and learned how to navigate the life of a student athlete at the collegiate level. Managing coursework, practices, and working as a physical therapy aide gave her insight into the challenges this population faces, especially when faced with injury. This experience led her to pursue her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences, in San Marcos, California.
Dr. Ari’s treatment approach focuses on the importance of patient-centered care and active listening. She believes in establishing a therapeutic relationship between patient and therapist, to best provide individualized care for each person. Her main goal as an orthopedic physical therapist is to improve her patient’s quality of life and help restore their function to return to the sport or activity they want to return to participating in.
In her free time, Dr. Ari enjoys spending time outside hiking, camping, snowboarding in the Winter, and exploring new places. She is an avid gym and indoor spin class enthusiast. She also enjoys spending time with her family and friends in her hometown of San Diego.
