Martin Canavan, PT MHS
Owner Achieve Physical Therapy
In 2003, I established Achieve Physical Therapy to provide our local community with high quality, patient- centered care in a family like private practice setting. Today we remain committed to providing that same level of care in this exciting and challenging health care environment. As the owner of a small private practice, my goals remain to ensure that we take the time to get to know our patients, advocate for our patients and treat our patients with the most up to date evidence- based methods that result in efficient and cost effective care.
As the owner, I am also proud to have a professional, hard-working staff dedicated to continuing the values established over 10 years ago. Our family here at Achieve work, worship, teach, live, play, raise our children and support the Central New York region and our patients we serve.

Caitlin Corrice, DPT
Caitlin Corrice is originally from Liverpool, NY and attended SUNY Geneseo for her undergraduate degree in Psychology. She moved to Burlington, VT to pursue a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from The University of Vermont. After graduation, she continued her education and completed her certification in Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment. It helps her better address joint pain in the spine and extremities. She loves helping people return to what they love doing - whether it is hiking, running, playing sports, swimming, or anything else that makes them smile. She most enjoys treating low back pain, weakness, and those prone to falls. After growing up in CNY, she is happy to be back in Syracuse and looks forward to treating those in the community with the best evidence based care.
I am a 2011 graduate of LeMoyne College and 2016 graduate of Merryhurst University’s Physical Therapy Assistant program. I have been a lifeguard, security officer and a crisis worker in behavioral health as well and a lifelong swimmer, which has led me to wanting to become a PTA and help people understand their body functions. I focus on educating patients on the “why” as much as the “how”. I will ensure you understand how exercises tie-into your everyday activities, and develop strong and mind-body connections so that you can continue living the life you want while preventing re-injury down the road. My wife and I live in Fayetteville with our 3 dogs and 1 cat.
