Roger Bachour is the founder and President of Accelerated Physical Therapy. Roger obtained a Bachelor of Science in Health and Physical Education from Bob Jones University in 1988, and a Physical Therapy degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in 1992. Before starting Accelerated Physical Therapy, he worked in the private practice setting as a physical therapist and as a clinic director.
In his many years of experience, Roger has treated almost every orthopedic musculoskeletal injury. His main focus has been on using a complete biomechanical approach to evaluating and treating the patient. This approach has allowed him to treat the root problems and not just the symptoms. Roger has treated and continues to treat a high number of athletes. His background in sports and coaching, as well as being a soccer player, give him a greater understanding of what level of function the athlete needs to return to. He has guided seven local high school and club teams to state championships and has helped many players move on to the collegiate level.
The area he's most known for now is a foot and ankle specialty. Over the last several years, he has focused his training on the lower extremities, specifically the foot and ankle. Roger has perfected the fabrication of custom orthotics (shoe inserts), and he has had great success in treating foot problems. He is a frequent guest lecturer on foot and ankle biomechanics at local Universities and colleges, and he travels across the country to teach continuing education courses on this special subject.
Roger is also Titleist Performance Institute certified. He provides golf screening, video analysis, and exercise recommendations to promote efficiency and safety in the golfer, enabling longevity in the ability of the patient to play golf.
Active in the community and his local church, Roger is also a member of American Physical Therapy Association and the South Carolina Physical Therapy Association.
