I went to a different PT for two different issues and decided a change was in order. I figured they were all basically the same. I was very wrong.Everyone at the Ridgewood location is lovely. Warm, friendly, welcoming. They all know their stuff and adapt your plan to your personal needs and... hopes. They never do anything that causes you discomfort. They listen and tailor your exercises to you.Many thanks to Brandon, Danielle and Julie. You guys are great. Extra hugs to Angela who is very special and one of the loveliest people I have ever met.I will be back when the knees get done. Thank more

Karen F.
I highly recommend Professional PT in Ridgewood! All of the therapists are experienced and very proficient, it’s easy to schedule appointments, and it’s a pleasant atmosphere. Brandon S. is the therapist I worked with, and he’s incredibly knowledgable. He correctly assessed my injury before I had... even seen the orthopedic surgeon or had an MRI. The program that he created for me leading up to my knee surgery set me up for a faster and easier post-surgery recovery. Brandon educated me all along the way, and varied the exercises so it never got boring or repetitive. Now that I’ve finished my PT, I feel very empowered to continue my recovery and resume an active lifestyle. I could not be happier with the care I more

Danielle is amazing! Would recommend her to anyone❤️She is very professional and respectful of patients ailments. Danielle listens to their complaints and provides the correct treatments to them.
Denise Y.
I’ve been treated by various members of this group, but mostly Rebecca, both pre & post total hip replacement and cannot say enough great things about them! Most importantly, my improvement has been light years ahead of what any other p.t. group tried to do for me before I found PPT. For starters,... they keep the number of patients in the room at the same time at a minimum to maintain Covid precautions. Keeping patients spread out also allows the therapist to pay close attention to how their patient is doing their assigned exercises even when they are working with a second patient so that corrections can be made immediately to maximize the benefits from each session. PPT also does more hands on therapy than I’ve ever experienced with other p.t. groups and Rebecca is especially effective in this regard. PPT also stands out from their competition in offering very unique approaches to their treatment plans which I believe makes ALL the difference in compressing the healing window. I can’t imagine going anywhere else for my future rehab needs and you shouldn’t either!read more

I am so happy to find a therapist in Ridgewood as good as Danielle and her assistant Angela. They helped my 9-year-old son walk better. They are so kind and friendly that they make you feel like family. Very professional. I recommend them 100%
Professional, extremely detail oriented an excellent at their jobs. Danielle and her entire staff are top-notch and I would highly recommend them to anybody who needs any type of therapy after surgery or an accident they are definitely they go to people. It’s very hard to trust medical/physical... therapists in today’s climate where are you were always treated like a number . This is the exception to that rule, at this location they treat you like a human being first put your Care and your specific needs as a top priority. You know that you will walk out better than you felt before you needed PT!read more
Raquel T.
Danielle is amazing! After meniscus tear surgery, I haven't been able to walk or do stairs in months, it felt like I would never get back to a normal life. Danielle has gotten me back to all of it! She is accomodating to my work schedule and genuinely cares about my health and well being. Do not... hesitate to schedule with this team!read more

Growing up I was always fascinated with anatomy and biomechanics and their application to athletics and training. I also love working
and interacting with people so the synergy of these things naturally led to the study of physical therapy. My undergraduate study in
Athletic Training prepared me to work with an active and athletically demanding population. I have found that the challenge of treating
high level athletes with very specific needs and demands has helped me develop critical thinking skills that have allowed me to
succeed in treating all types of individuals, from weekend warriors training for the next Ironman to nonagenarians looking to get around
the block again.

Upon initially graduating college, Julie was working in a sales office and although she enjoyed the customer service aspect, she knew she wanted to do something more active and fulfilling. She had attended trade shows and met many physical therapists over the next few years and was intrigued at their love for the profession. So the decision was made to return to school for physical therapy and she never looked back. After starting her PT career at Hackensack University Medical Center, which was invaluable training for acute care and trauma situations, she knew she wanted to transition to outpatient orthopedic physical therapy. Her love of working out, hiking, golfing, jogging and softball all lead her to want to help others get back to the activities that they each enjoy.

Over the years, Julie has worked at several different orthopedic locations and has trained in various methods including instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, trigger point dry needling, Mulligan techniques, and many other various hands on and exercise based courses.

She set her goals to include becoming a Board Certified Specialist in Orthopedic Physical Therapy in 2005, then returning to school to obtain her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2007. She then passed her recertification for her Board Certification in 2015.

She believes that helping patients understand their diagnosis in clear, concise terms then developing a plan that includes a blend of education, hands on techniques, targeted exercises, and a home program will empower patients to achieve their goals.

Julie recently joined Professional Physical Therapy and is finding likeminded therapists who work as a team to give patients optimal care.
