Armin Hornikel, PT, DPT - Assistant Clinic Director


Armin enjoys spending time with family in Tuscaloosa, training for triathlons, swimming, trying out new cooking recipes, exploring Alabama, and traveling to visit friends all over the country.


“My PT passion is managing acute conditions to prevent progression to chronicity, early intervention has been shown to reduce disability and medical intervention, the longevity of symptoms, and cost to the consumer! This has always been a priority of mine as I was in/out of Physical Therapy for shoulder pain during competitive swimming and I understand what it feels like to not be able to participate in a passion. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages to help facilitate return to their favorite activities, no matter how small or large the task!”
