Ariel Hinton, PT, DPT

Pelvic Health, Physical & Occupational Therapy

Practices In: Aurora, Naperville
Patients Seen: Adults

My phi­los­o­phy is to pro­vide evi­dence-based care and give patients real­is­tic expec­ta­tions for heal­ing times, par­tic­i­pa­tion while at ther­a­py ses­sions, and com­ple­tion of a home pro­gram. All of which, will assist in enhanc­ing the per­son­’s qual­i­ty of life and improve their opti­mum lev­el of func­tion­ing. My pas­sion as a phys­i­cal ther­a­pist is pro­vid­ing edu­ca­tion that is easy to under­stand and relat­able. I enjoy being able to build a rela­tion­ship with every indi­vid­ual that I meet and cre­at­ing a unique tai­lored inter­ven­tion plan for them.

Clinical Interests

Personal Interests

I enjoy being phys­i­cal­ly active, yoga, com­plet­ing craft projects, trav­el­ing, the sea­son of fall/​autumn, play­ing with my Siber­ian Husky, Blaze, and spend­ing time with fam­i­ly and friends.
