Joe's Definition of Fitness - "The ability to tolerate and adapt to changes"

Joe's Bio:
Born and raised on Staten Island, I made my way up to Connecticut for graduate school, where in 2010 I completed my Doctoral Program in Physical Therapy at Sacred Heart University. I have since been a physical therapist in New York City for over 10 years, and have seen (and been a part of) both the good and the bad of the healthcare system.

Throughout my time as a PT I always wanted more. More for myself, and more for my patients. Through my experiences, time with mentors, countless continuing education courses, teaching around the world, and my own personal battle with depression, I began to question what I could actually do as a Physical Therapist, and perhaps more importantly, what I could do better as a human being.

I began to develop a style of care that centered around education, empowerment, and communication. It was there I discovered the importance of empathy and compassion, and how these tools were the biggest thing missing in my ability to help people in the past. Coupled with the birth of my daughter in 2014, these events and thoughts helped me re-shaped my view on life and my career.

I started Strength in Motion Physical Therapy in 2018 with the goal of truly being able to deliver a patient centered model that was of the standards I, and patients, expected and deserved.

Through utilization of techniques and systems such as Functional Range Conditioning/Functional Range Release, Kinstretch, RockTape, and Functional Movement/Selective Functional Movement Assessments, I am now proud to offer care the way it was meant to be received, and with one goal in mind - to keep you moving.
