Aleksey Lavrinenko, PT, DPT, OCS, COMT

Physical Therapist

Aleksey holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Kent State University (2013) and a Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree from Ohio University (2018). He is also a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) through the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). His special interests include treating weight lifting/crossfit athletes, runners, and foot/ankle injuries.

After graduating Aleksey started treating patients but also followed his enthusiasm to grow his skills by enrolling in an Orthopedic Physical Therapy Residency program through the North American Institute of Manual Orthopedic Therapy (NAIOMT) in Eugene, Oregon. During this time Aleksey had the pleasure of learning from many great mentors as well as pursuing a 2 year post professional education program to earn the title of Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT).

During his graduate studies Aleksey assisted in a gait research laboratory with a special interest in running biomechanics. This experience fueled a passion for working with runners which drew him to move across the country to Eugene, Oregon (“Tracktown, USA”). He chose Eugene specifically because he sought out mentorship by one of the greatest running PT’s in the country. During this time his exposure to the University of Oregon Track and Field team and Nike Oregon Track Club Elite gave him the learning experience he always dreamed of. He worked under the mentorship of this individual, with whom they opened a new clinic that provided quality community care with a special emphasis on exceptional sports rehab and collaboration with teams. He had the pleasure of working with professional, collegiate, high school, and recreational runners as well as the University of Oregon hockey team. In that time he honed his skills as a PT as well as building relationships with coaches, athletic trainers, doctors, and of course his community.

After Oregon Aleksey was fortunate enough to move to Aspen, Colorado where he worked closely with the orthopedic team from the Steadman Philippon Research Institute. This gave him the opportunity to work with a variety of snowsports injuries and their post surgical care, taking a special interest in foot and ankle care.

Besides working as a Physical Therapist Aleksey also enjoys participating in and coaching crossfit classes, mountain biking, snowboarding, hiking, and tinkering in the garage. He now resides in the Upper Valley with his wife, Michaela and their dog, Kira.
