The AVORA Story
AVORA is a privately owned and operated healthcare company with locations in Asheville, NC and Black Mountain, NC specializing in outpatient orthopedics, sports performance, balance, dizziness, vertigo, and concussions. We pride ourselves on providing quality rehabilitation and outstanding customer service in a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere.
Our story began in 2008 with a bit of tragedy when Kim Fox, founder of AVORA, was struck by a pickup truck while riding her motorcycle. Most of her injuries were the result of being thrown over the truck and landing in the street on her head and knees. She spent the next year undergoing surgery and rehab. Prior to the accident, Kim had been an orthopedic PT for over 15 years, but also had a passion for working with patients suffering from balance, dizziness, and vertigo. Ironically, her year in recovery gave her the time she needed to further her studies in vestibular disorders.
In 2009 she briefly returned to her previous employer in Black Mountain where she quickly discovered that she unable to continue working as an orthopedic therapist due to her physical limitations. With limited options available, she found a business partner and they opened their own physical therapy clinic in South Asheville where Kim could focus on working with balance & dizzy patients.
Today, all of our services and locations carry the AVORA branding and we remain committed to the same excellent care and outstanding service as we did when we started in 2009. The secret to our success is simple. Treat people right, hire the best employees, buy the best equipment, and solve complex problems. As a leader in our field of expertise, we now see patients from around the world and continue to grow. Thank you for allowing us to share our story with you!
