John Curreri, Jr. , PT, DPT, OCS
Clinic Director, Physical Therapist
“Simply put, my philosophy with physical therapy practice is to provide the best possible care to each and every patient I encounter. It is important to understand that every patient is different, even if several present with the same condition, surgery, etc., and they will each require individualized care to reach their speciﬁc goals and physical potential. I like to maximize every treatment session for each patient. It is important to provide patients with treatments that they cannot do on their own at home. Manual therapy for mobilization is vital to care, but so are education and progressing exercises to improve range of motion, strength, balance, gait, and more.
All that being said, the ultimate goal is to empower my patients and make them an active participants in their physical therapy care by providing them with detailed education and encouraging their input to their own plans of care. This allows us to work together towards achieving goals that are important to them speciﬁcally. Being honest and open with patients is important to me. I want patients to understand what is going on with their condition, how I can help them, and what the plan is going forward for them individually.”
