Mostafa is excited to working with Achieve Sports Medicine. He recently graduated with his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin. He also earned his bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training from Carroll as well. While at Carroll, he had a unique experience of being a 4-year varsity football athlete, as a defensive lineman, while being an athletic training student. This gave him the ability to understand the stressful times of being a student-athlete while learning how to rehabilitate sports injuries. Speaking of unique experiences, he was an athletic training intern for the Northwestern Football team during their spring ball training in 2019. During his time as an intern at Northwestern, he developed a case study on the utilization of blood flow restriction therapy (BFRT) with a Division I athlete with a hip labral tear. He was able to present this case study at the 2019 Wisconsin
Athletic Training Association State Symposium, where he was awarded 2nd place of out of 15 other case studies.
While he was in Physical Therapy school, he gave 2 in-services about utilizing BFRT in rehabilitation during his clinical rotation, which inspired them to utilize it on their own patients in the future.
Mostafaalso completed a 4-month mentorship from “The Level Up Initiative” so he can learn to help his patients and himself to create a great mindset and have critical thinking/communication skills.
For his final clinical rotation, he was selected to be an intern at one of the most difficult clinical rotations with EXOS in Phoenix, Arizona. He had the opportunity to rehabilitate a range of different athletes from youth athletes to elite athletes. Some of the athletes that he treated play in the NFL, MLB, and division 1 schools.
Mostafa attended Amos Alonzo Stagg High School in Palos Hills, Illinois where he competed in multiple sports including football, wrestling, water polo, shot put, and powerlifting. In fact, I was a state
champion in powerlifting! He was also named first team all-conference and honorable mention all-area. Mostafa’s primary interest is working with athletes. However, he works with a variety of other patients since he also works at the achieve manual therapy clinics. He chose to be physical therapist since he had a share of injuries from his past sports and understands how much of a mental/physical toll it can take to be injured and away from your sport, especially if your life is surrounded with sports. He also
witnessed and helped care for his bedridden grandmother with his family. I want to prevent people from getting to that level by providing quality care and proper education for long term health and longevity.
