Dr. Ashli Bottino, DPT, Advanced Hip Clinician

Jersey City Clinical Director

Ashli graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science, with minors in both Coaching Science and Strength and Conditioning. She then went on to receive her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Rutgers University.  Ashli has experience in orthopedics, pediatrics and pelvic health PT. 

Ashli was a member of UD's Women's club Ultimate Frisbee Team during all 4 years of her undergraduate studies. During that time, Ashli, herself had firsthand experience with physical therapy. While playing ultimate frisbee, she developed stress fractures in both of her shins. After a successful recovery utilizing PT and weight lifting she went on to implement a strength training program for her teammates which aided in injury prevention. She loves working with athletes and is very much an advocate for off-season conditioning and cross training.

Ashli has received ongoing training in pelvic health treatment through Herman and Wallace for pelvic floor conditions. She treats both men and women with various pelvic floor conditions including, but not limited to, pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, prostatitis, prolapse, and sexual dysfunction. She is also a Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist and believes that postpartum physical therapy in the fourth trimester is very important.  Ashli is an HSS Hip Rehabilitation Preservation Certified Clinician through the Hospital for Special Surgery treating patients with hip labral tears, hip tendinitis/tendonosis, Cam/Pincer impingements associated with FAI, pre/post-op PAO, post-op hernia repair, osteoarthritis and Total Hip Arthroplasty. Ashli also became a Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certified Level 1 instructor to figure out why her golfing patients are in pain and how to give them performance exercises to hit further and straighter pain free.

Ashli's aim as a physical therapist is to help you get back to doing what you love by giving you the proper knowledge and confidence.


In her free time, Ashli enjoys hiking, golfing, weightlifting, cooking, watching live music performances and all sporting events.
