Grace Z.
It works! Came to Professional PT with a strained hip flexor and recovered after several weeks of treatment. Steve and the rest of the team are knowledgeable, professional, and all-around wonderful people to be around. I couldn't have picked a better place to receive treatment. Highly recommend!
Jen K.
I can’t say enough great things about the professionalism, warmth, and quality care I received at Professional Physical Therapy in the Boston Financial District office. Olivia and the team helped me get back to my active status after a back injury. I’m extremely grateful for their great skills. ... I’d highly recommend choosing this office if you have an unfortunate more
Sarah B.
Natalia was extremely helpful. She would assess how I was feeling each appointment and adjust my plan for that day accordingly. In the short time I was working with Natalia, I feel much stronger and confident returning to life as it was prior to my injury. Would highly recommend!
Paige L.
I had a great experience at Professional PT in the financial district and would recommend to anyone! Natalia was my therapist and I can’t say enough good things about the experience. I had gone to physical therapy once before elsewhere and felt that it was a very copy/paste approach to treatment,... like here are 5 exercises everyone gets. Natalia really took the time to discover what was causing my issues and created an individualized plan to resolve them. She was very intuitive with my progress, so we could advance when appropriate or have a lighter, stretching focused day if needed. Their hours accommodated my complicated schedule and all the therapists and exercise techs are very kind and helpful. I noticed every patient had very different plans based on their needs, so the approach is unique for each patient’s ailments and goals. I highly recommend!read more
Charlotte S.
I had the pleasure of working with Steve Vitale and his team for many weeks. They did an absolutely wonderful job in ensuring I was comfortable, consistently checking in on how PT was assisting my goals. They did a fantastic job of helping me to understand the complex nature of my injury and how I... could prevent future flare ups and pain throughout the day. It was by far my best experience in physical therapy that I've had and I can't recommend Professional Physical Therapy more
Iz C
I’m extremely grateful for the amazing care I received at Professional PT over the past few months! I was a patient of Natalia’s to treat knee pain that accumulated over years of distance running. Her personalized exercises and stretches made a huge impact on my mobility and strengthening journey.... Natalia will push you the appropriate amount while also fostering a judgment-free experience. Thanks to her expertise and support, I feel a level of confidence and strength when running that I haven’t felt in a while!While my appointments were primarily with Natalia, I also had fantastic experiences with Olivia and Tramanh - who are incredibly knowledgeable and kind. It was always great to see them at my appointments and I felt very supported any time I was in their care!Thank you so much to the whole Professional PT team!!read more
Julia N.
I came here for about 7 weeks for my left knee, which was painful whenever I tried to run more than 5-10 minutes. My PCP recommended this clinic to me and I was looking for a place that was close to South Station to make my commute easier. I worked with Olivia, who is very professional and easy to... communicate with. I did exercises that strengthened my hips and glutes. During this time, we slowly reintroduced running again and at the end of 7 weeks I was able to run for 30 minutes with no issue. Their clinic is small but has everything you need. I felt comfortable with everyone on the staff here so I enjoyed my visits and exercising more
Mari B.
Natalia and the rest of the Professional PT team are amazing. Everyone is very welcoming and I love their ability to work as a team. I worked with Natalia who was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and patient with me while helping my back pain. She helped develop a personalized plan that allowed me... to get back to activities that I had been limited to due to my back pain. Everyone has been so supportive and has made my experience at a professional PT a very positive one. I would highly recommend this to others!read more
Sam M.
I had a great experience at Professional Physical Therapy. The entire staff was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and caring. Having never been to physical therapy before, I was uncertain about the treatment process. From day one my therapist, Olivia, put a plan in place to correct the issues I... was having, and tailored my treatment to my specific needs. Because of this, I experienced amazing results! The office was great with being upfront regarding payment and insurance, and was incredibly accommodating with scheduling. I would highly recommend PPT to those looking for physical therapists that really care about their work and their patients!!read more
Juliet H.
My experience with the entire ProPT team has been nothing short of incredible. Being a PT student and letting myself fall into fear avoidance with my own back injury is something that I never thought could happen to me. Steve has been the absolute best PT to work with. He listens to every one of... my concerns and helps to address them all with the empathy and knowledge that embodies how I strive to be with my own patients. I leave every session feeling better about getting back to how my life was, with increased confidence and hope that I can get back to running and dancing!read more
Jhonatan G.
I have been coming to Professional PT for various injuries and rehab for the past couple of years. The staff is great in assessing patient injuries and creating and executing a plan for your recovery. I was a patient of Olivia, she always made sure to ask for my feedback on exercises and previous... sessions to be able to adjust my workout plans accordingly. Culla, was my exercise tech and she was amazing in explaining how to perform and get the most out of every exercise. Can’t thank the whole staff enough for the treatment I received and I know that if I ever do need physical therapy treatment again I know where to go!!read more
Sean H.
I have dealt with sports-related injuries for almost 20 years, including multiple surgeries and several iterations of physical therapy. In no uncertain terms, Steve and the team at Professional Physical Therapy have redefined quality pt for me. Conscientious and encouraging, the folks at Pro PT... foster a comfortable environment for healing & meeting your physical therapy goalsread more
Ceren U.
I had the best experience here! Everyone was so patient, welcoming, and helpful. They care about the patient's quality of life and ease above everything else. Right from the start Steve was very diligent in understanding my concerns and he made sure to address all of them one by one. Even after one... session I was feeling much better, and the following visits expanded my range of motion and increased my strength. Aside from PT itself, the office was extremely transparent about the payment and insurance. This is the place I'd come back for all my PT needs!read more
Laura S.
I had an amazing experience here! The staff are all very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The location made it super easy to get a session in during the workday. I highly recommend the Team here - they are driven to help you get back to your day to day routine as quickly yet safely as possible!
Shervin S.
The entire PPT team provides incredible patient care. Steve, in particular, demonstrates a high level of empathy during each visit. The knowledge he possesses translated into a precise prognosis and a deliberate recovery plan. I am eternally grateful for the progress I have made under his... more
Stephanie D.
I've spent a lot of time at ProPT over the last 8 months rehabbing my knee and then my neck. Dr Ross and Amber were very kind and had excellent patient skills. They explained things, took a genuine interest in my goals and provided a fun environment in which to accomplish those goals. Chris is the... guy for ice and stimulation work! Really great team all around! Highly recommend them to get you mobile again :-)read more
Elena G.
I really recommend Professional Physical Therapy. They have helped me recover from several injuries over 4+ years. Most recently I worked with Jiawen in the Financial District location and I couldn’t be happier. She is very knowledgeable, attentive, and always asks her patients for feedback. You... can tell she really enjoys working with patients and her goal is the same as yours: to get you feeling better as quickly as possible. I truly recommend her!The whole team at Professional PT is honestly fantastic. From the schedulers, to the students, to the providers. Everyone is there to help and I have felt very welcome and taken care of. They also always offer great schedule flexibility, which is very more
joan M.
I have been receiving treatment at Professional Physical Therapy in the Financial District for the past 10 weeks. I strained my left leg while skiing in Canada. Initially, I had to use a supportive boot to walk around my home. And now, I can power walk around the city. I had a treatment plan... organized by Stephen and Aaron. During my visits, Stephen, Aaron, and Anmol would execute the plan. They worked as a team offering guidance and encouragement to stay the course. I highly recommend Professional PT and this great team of professionalsread more
Christine B.
Professional PT Financial District was a great experience. After starting at their old Government Center location, I transitioned easily to a new provider at the FiDi location and continue to see great improvements from my PT sessions. The staff is great and very focused on patient outcomes,... giving everyone direct attention and support during sessions. Highly recommend Professional PT overall and specifically the team at this locationread more
Madeline S.
The Professional PT team has been amazing in the past 8 weeks I have been working with them. They provide personalized care in the office and have also helped me to find exercises I can do on my own to speed up my recovery. Highly recommend!
Special K
The whole team is awesome! Very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and professional! I’ve been coming in for my right knee and I can feel strength and mobility coming back 100% after a a few weeks!I cannot speak highly enough of this practice. All the staff are very knowledgeable and provide... genuine care for their patients. I am glad I found this place!read more
Casey T.
Professional Physical Therapy was recommended to me by a friend after I suffered a torn meniscus. Over the past few months, I’ve been meeting with Jiawen and her team twice a week to rebuild strength in my knee. They have been outstanding to work with – very friendly, attentive and professional. I... would highly recommend anyone in need of physical therapy to turn to the team at Professional Physical more
Taymour R.
Overall amazing experience! Great team that works relentlessly to make sure your feeling better and on the way to meeting your goals. Everyone is very dedicated to providing you with the best experience possible both in and out of the clinic. In terms of the clinic itself, it is a very modern... facility with a wide range of tools and machines that are all fully utilized in the process of healing their patients. Would definitely recommend professional PT to anyone looking for a very effective treatment plan with an overall great atmosphere of positivity throughout. The head doctor Steve does an amazing job giving each patient 100% of his focus and dedication, he is constantly checking in on your progress and always makes sure to adapt your treatment based on your more
Matt H.
Great, better yet- the best experience possible working with Jiawen , Anmol and Steve has me back better than I could have hoped . Methods employed were both traditional , innovative , and engaging. Everyone here took a vested interest in my well being and were extremely encouraging with my... treatment and very flexible when helping book my appointments around my difficult schedule . Furthermore you couldn’t ask for nicer people. Not only will you feel great after visiting but you’ll feel like you made new friends too. Clean office, convenient location. Visit with confidence ! 5 stars , 2 thumbs up !!!read more
Brendan B.
After finishing up my therapy here I have realized that there are not enough good things I can say about this place. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and friendly people who really care about your progress and goals as a patient. They have very flexible hours, and are accommodating to all... schedules. After having gone to multiple places throughout the years I can easily say this was by far my best experience. I highly recommend!read more
Frederick R.
I've had loads of physical therapy in my long life, but I think I may have found the best model so far! I've been going twice a week, for one hour each time. I'm being treated or doing exercises the whole time. One day a week I do some exercises at home. In the past I was expected to do home... exercises every day, and sometimes there were many to do. It was overwhelming and very time consuming. In the model at Professional PT, I was able to make more progress, more quickly, than in the past, because I did the exercises primarily under professional supervision twice a week. Further, I enjoy doing them because the staff was so fun, friendly and supportive.Finally, based on my interactions with Steve Vitale, my sense is that he is more knowledgeable and curious than most physical therapists, and perhaps smarter as well. I highly recommend both him and the Professional PT model of care.Grant Rockettread more
George K.
I would recommend that anyone and everyone who requires PT to come to Professional PT on High Street to work with Steve Vitale and the rest of the fantastic team. This past September, I tore my left meniscus a week before starting my senior season of college club hockey. I was absolutely ... devastated, with little hope of getting back on the ice prior to graduating. Fast forward 4 months and I have been back on the ice for a couple of weeks now, playing in high intensity games, getting ready to head to nationals in March. I give all of the credit to Steve. An active listener with outstanding critical thinking skills, Steve is not like other physical therapists I have worked with before. He truly listens to your description of symptoms and how you are feeling day to day, and bases your road to recovery on these inputs, not just your clinical diagnosis. He explains the reason for everything in detail along the way, and will take any suggestions you have into account when designing your exercises. Steve helped me regain my confidence, and I truly looked forward to coming to High Street twice a week. 100% recommend reaching out if you are looking for a place to start your PT journey, you won’t be more
Holly K.
Both I and my husband have had PT here and it’s always been a great experience (expecting the fact that PT was necessary!). We’re both runners and overuse injuries crop up. The staff and location are fantastic and we always feel very well taken care of with personalized attention.
Owen S.
5 stars would definitely recommend. The entire staff is super friendly and really professional. They have made my experience excellent
Christian Z.
Update: I’ve had another amazing experience at Professional Physical Therapy. This is the place that I would go to for any sports injury. I trust that they can always help me reach where I would like to be in regards to my physical health. Additionally, they have a safe and comfortable atmosphere... where I’ve had many laughs. If you’re looking to get back to good, physical health, Professional PT is the place for you!read more
Mischa I.
I’ve been a patient at this clinic for over a month and could not be in better hands. The lead therapist Steve is amazing to work with and just an amazing human being overall, the entire staff follows his lead and is just fantastic. I mean they even have a board of daily holiday jokes!
Sandra S
Very grateful to Steve and the whole staff of Professional Physical Therapy! I had a terrific experience during my rehab working with their extremely professional, knowledgeable, and caring staff. Would highly recommend this clinic to everyone I know!
Nada O.
I have had a great experience at the clinic. All the staff are very friendly and professional and Steve Vitale is an outstanding highly knowledgeable physical therapist! He cares about his patients and goes above and beyond to help including if there are emergencies outside business hours.
Elizabeth M.
Professional Physical Therapy on High St. is awesome! I have been here to help treat a few injuries and have always had a positive experience. The therapists are beyond helpful and attentive and I’d recommend to anyone in the area looking for a PT!
Thomas H.
Been working with this group on 3 different injuries and plan to go back for my 4th if and when it occurs! Been to a few PT offices in downtown Boston and this was the best I found; the whole team is knowledgeable and helpful and they do a better job of "hands on" work than other offices, in my... experience. I would recommend!read more

I highly recommend the clinic, the staff is brilliant and talented. Since, the first day I will like home. Due to their treatment and recommendations I recovered from my hip injury. Quickly.
Shemylah and Shahzeb J.
I have been attending PT for my ankle for a few months now with Steve and his team at Professional PT. They have been amazing and my recovery has been predictable and Steve has been great at explaining and focusing on the different parts of the ankle and based on how they have been healing. The... team is also great with logistics and scheduling. Definitely recommend!read more
Chloe M.
I can't recommend Steve and the team at Professional Physical Therapy enough! I came in with a sprained ankle fully convinced I'd never walk again (okay, so maybe I'm a tad bit dramatic..) but after working with Steve for just a few weeks I was back to feeling 100%. They also have a great office... culture that makes your time there genuinely enjoyable. Not to mention it flies by. This will definitely be my go-to spot anytime I'm in the market for more
Rachel R.
Steve and the Professional Physical Therapy team at High St is awesome.I came to PT with acute and chronic knee / hamstring injuries. Steve was great in terms of diagnoses and helping adjust my exercises based on my symptoms + goals.He is also a great teacher to both patients and the co-ops who... rotate through the location. The Northeastern students are a great addition because they help get all the exercise equipment ready and motivate you throughout your workout routine. Thanks!!read more
Brian D.
Steve and all team members in the Financial District office have made my PT experience as good as it can be. Steve is very knowledgeable with what he’s doing and does a great job of explaining what is happening in a way that makes sense, especially to somebody with minimal understanding. If you... find yourself needing to go to PT, I highly recommend Steve and the Financial District office!read more
Mike L.
The Financial District Professional Therapy location is very well run. The staff is friendly/welcoming. Steve Vitale and his team are extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend this location. They make physical therapy enjoyable.
Brianna F.
Highly recommend Professional Physical Therapy. Steve and the team are great! All take time to listen to concerns and carefully address all problems. Great at communicating how I can become better and how to get there. Super friendly staff and would recommend for any PT needs.
Devina K.
Steve and the team at Professional PT are awesome! Working with Steve, Ghibran, Owen, and Emily has been awesome. I have had a back injury that has been plaguing me for the past three years. After getting a serious bout of pain in June, I started physical therapy. At around the same time, a back... surgeon told me that I would likely never be able to run again or do any moderately strenuous physical activity. I’m happy to say that with Steve’s help, I was able to prove the surgeon wrong. After spending 3 months at Professional PT, I am able to lead my normal life pain-free and feel empowered to go back to the gym. I’m so grateful to the team at Professional PT for giving me the tools I need to build back better and prevent injuries in the future. Thank you!read more
Eil M.
I've been coming here for over a month now and my only regret is that I did not come sooner. Steve is very knowledgeable, compassionate and caring. He takes the time to explain everything and he is a good listener. The whole team is well organized, friendly and thoughtful. I would highly recommend... this location to more
megan D.
Steve and his team at Professional physical Therapy are terrific! I came here with a cartilage problem in my knee; I could hardly walk without severe pain. Now after a few months I am much more mobile and have regained a lot of strength in my leg. The team takes the time to listen to me, always... explain what they are doing in a way I can understand. I would highly recommend Steve and his team to anyone in need of physical therapy!!read more

I am having a great experience with them. From day one they actually showed that they were very concerned with my situation. They are really helping me achieve my goals. Thank you guys, y’all are the best. Totally recommend !
Danielle A.
I HIGHLY recommend this location for physical therapy. Steve is extremely knowledgeable and his dedication to his clients is unparalleled. I have been to 4 different physical therapists for the same injury and he has been the first to actual get me back running again when I could barely walk for... over a year. He has been incredibly creative coming up with exercises that I can perform to gain strength again and I am so grateful! This is definitely the place to be!read more

After a long flight and spending the day in Boston walking around and going on a duck boat tour my upper back was a mess. I contacted Steve and he was able to get me in that same day. He was attentive to my needs and was very knowledgeable with different ways of relief. He was able to get me back... up and on my feet again and I would definitely recommend coming and seeing him if you are in need of an expert physical more
Nicolette M.
Steve and the rest of the Professional PT staff are the best in the business! I would highly recommend them to any of my friends or family. One of the things I love most about this team is that they don't just tell you what exercises to do, they explain why you're doing it and how it's helping you... to feel better in the end. I'm so grateful to them for helping me feel better and keep up with my training!read more
Samantha W.
I had a pretty serious surgery earlier this year and was a little worried about getting back on my feet. Glad to have found Steve and his team at Professional Physical Therapy - I really appreciated how friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable everyone was. It made going to PT fun. I couldn’t... recommend this clinic more!read more
Lauren B.
Shoutout to the whole team at Professional Physical Therapy! Steve was great- he took the time to explain everything he was implementing to resolve my issues, and was very responsive! The entire team is awesome, keeping sessions fun. My issues were resolved within a couple of months of sessions-... quick diagnosis and more

Professional Physical Therapy on 10 High St, I am so proud to know the team. They are very knowledgeable. They work with passion and kindness. During last five years going up and down to different places looking for help for my back and my neck problem, I finally found this place. Steve and his... team taking good care of me. I am really satisfy for the care they are giving to me. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.I would like to say thank you to all of them for making me smiling more
Lucy Z
I could not recommend Steve and his team more! Finding a PT center through online reviews and insurance company suggestions was a little intimidating, but Professional Physical Therapy instantly put me at ease. The providers are attentive, super helpful, and so accommodating. All the issues I had... come in for were gone, and Steve constantly checked in with me around discharge to ensure I was ready. I not only got help with my physical therapy issues, but also had an enjoyable time during my sessions because of the providers. I would HIGHLY recommend this place - don’t more
Richard Z.
Best PT ever! Actual progress every week and allowed me to enjoy my hobby and new sports. Couldn’t recommend it more.
Angela F.
Throughout my whole PT experience at Professional PT, I was always comfortable asking questions regarding my knee injury, as all the staff were super friendly and open. They were very caring and took gradual steps to ensure my recovery progress was at an appropriate pace. They always gave me... various (and some repetitive, as it was equally important) exercises to do during my session and at home. Last but not least, they always have fresh word picture puzzles you can solve as brainteasers while you do your sets. It’s a great environment, and I highly recommend this place!read more
I’ve been going to Professional Physical Therapy (Financial District) to aid in my recovery after an accident shattered my knee cap.I interviewed several PT offices and knew I had hit a home run with Professional Physical Therapy after speaking on the phone to Steve Vitale, the clinic director at... the Financial District location. He took the time to talk through his philosophy about the role of PT and easily addressed a few concerns I had with previous PT I had received. He was a great combination of super knowledgeable and compassionate.Over my time working with Steve to regain mobility and now strength I’ve really seen how he and the other therapists work. The professionalism and know-how has been really impressive, especially how easily they explain exactly what’s going on physically with me in that moment or during that particular exercise.I always feel like I can ask questions regarding what’s happening when I’m home, and he’s quick to make suggestions to help aid my recovery.What’s impressed me most is how all the therapists have a problem solving and can-do attitude whether it be coordinating with your surgeon or how to invent an exercise or quickly adjust an existing exercise to better aid in the recovery goal I have. Steve is really good at listening to what my recovery goals are and keeping that first and foremost when working with me each week. The only thing I will warn you about is that you will have to listen to Steve’s Dad jokes on a regular basis;)Steve has not only helped me overcome the extreme mobility hurdles but also the emotional bumps that come along the way when undergoing a traumatic injury and a longer recovery. I highly recommend, 10/ more
Rahul C.
I’ve been to a lot of PT practices and this has been my best experience by far. Steve is very knowledgeable, has a great approach to helping patients understand body mechanics, and why we’re doing the exercises we’re doing. Their staff is also great and it’s a pleasure working with them all. I... highly more
Sloan M.
Steve and his staff at Professional PT on High St are the epitome of professionalism and excellence in the field of Physical Therapy. After getting my 2nd shoulder surgery, I was nervous that I wouldn't be able to recover fully/struggle getting where I want to be. Steve put both those worries to... rest immediately. Unlike other PT offices I have gone to in the past, the environment is clean, laid back, and the staff gives each patient diligent time and attention. Steve and crew never pushed me beyond what I was comfortable with and got my full range of motion back pretty much ahead of schedule. My strength and stability in the shoulder are back on par if not better then previous. 4 months later and I'm good to get back into my daily active lifestyle routine from lifting, boxing, running etc.. something at one time I didn't think would be possible. I highly recommend Steve and his crew at Professional PT, no matter the age or background -- these are your guys!read more
Vinay R.
Steve and his team at Professional PT really helped me through a rough patch. I had issues with my upper back, lower back and right foot. They helped me slowly recover but also learn how to manage these issues by myself. I had a good stretch of time where I was not feeling great and it really... helped to have a patient and sympathetic ear towards my problems. They were very knowledgeable and knew exactly what was wrong. I felt very comfortable going in and knowing I was in good hands. They did a great job with me and I highly recommend them. They were great with scheduling around my hours (especially with COVID) and understanding when I was late or had to more
Christian Z.
I’ve had an amazing experience here! The staff is very kind and they’ve done a wonderful job in helping me progress with my recovery.
Alison B.
I went to Professional Physical Therapy after I tore my ACL and worked with Steve Vitale through pre-op PT and went back after surgery to continue with post-op PT. He and his team carried themselves in a professional and upbeat way that made each session fun and something I looked forward to each... week - even when I was there up to three times per week. Steve is very knowledgeable, treats each patient on a case by case basis, sets up a plan based on your needs and answers any and all questions. He also explains why each exercise is beneficial which is great for personal learnings and continued recovery. The team always made sure I was pushing my limits but that it wasn't too much for me while doing so. If you're looking for any sort of physical therapy, I highly recommend Professional Physical Therapy!!read more

Alexandra (Alex) Linden is a gifted physical therapist. I was suffering from increasingly problematic chronic back pain and sciatica plus twisted my knee when I came to her for help. I had tried stretching, Accupuncture, massage, everything to no avail and I am a horseback rider so I was really... struggling. This was my first experience with PT and I would never wait so long to go again. Alex first helped me understand what I was doing to contribute to my back pain and how to preserve my back so that it would be in good shape for riding. As part of that, she prescribed 5 exercises for me to do daily that improved my core strength in a specific way that didn’t aggravate, but instead helped my back and used our time to help me understand how to do them properly. These daily exercises take me 15 min in total and changed my life. Within 2 weeks I was pain free and have remained so over a whole year since including a week long vacation ride. A bonus is that my core strength is really good now which also helps my riding. I just can’t recommend Alex highly enough for diagnosing the problem insightfully and helping me take control by doing things at home so that I can maintain a good quality of life for the long run. Thank you, Alex!read more

Recovered faster than I expected to with Professional Physical Therapy, and have had a great time along the way- I look forward to my sessions, always get a lot out of them, and make continuous progress.

As a child I was hurt very often as I had a background in many sports but my 2 biggest were as a hurdler in Track and Field and with wrestling. Growing up I had many multiple broken bones, nerve injuries, sprains and strains of muscles and ligaments etc. I was always intrigued by the body's ability to heal itself. I spent a good amount of time in Physical therapy and working with my athletic trainers on recovery. As I moved into high school and college and spent more time around the actual profession, I became energized by the opportunities that it presented. The further I got into PT, the more I loved PT. I continued my education for years after I received my doctorate degree from BU, by completing multiple fellowships in the field of orthopedic manual therapy where I really developed a passion for communication with patients, exercise prescription and manual therapy. I have also found a lot of joy in teaching others and I consistently take multiple PT students from all over and I act as a mentor in the Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy. I continue to look for new opportunities that the field of physical therapy offers and am excited about what the future holds!

The human mind and body has always fascinated me, and my own experience as a patient in physical therapy in high school further solidified that it was a profession I wanted to pursue. I also became an ABA therapist in college, which reminded me that I enjoy working with people in a constructive environment. As an undergraduate student, I completed my clinical rotation with the cardiac rehabilitation program at Marlborough Hospital. I subsequently obtained my doctorate of physical therapy at Plymouth State University, where I completed 3 clinical rotations in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I’m excited to have begun my career at Professional Physical Therapy, where I can help my patients achieve their treatment goals and maximize their function, while continuing my lifelong education as a physical therapist.
