WILLIAM J. CIOFFREDI, PT
Billy graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1979 with a degree in Physical Therapy. He has extensive experience in orthopedic and sports rehabilitation, with areas of special interest including the spine, ankle & foot disorders, headaches, TMJ dysfunction, and injuries related to the fine arts.
Billy played football growing up and through college where he played at the Division 1 level. It was his interest in biomechanics and physiology that led him into the PT profession. “Through my involvement in sports I had an interest in the physiology and biomechanics of how the body worked. As part of my participation in the Shrine game we went and visited the kids at the children’s hospital in Springfield, Mass. It was a very positive experience that left a lasting impression on me and was an influence in my decision.
Billy started his career at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center where he met his wife Ruth. Together they opened Cioffredi & Associates in 1985. In 2012 Billy received his certification in Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN), which uses solid filament needles, like those used in acupuncture, to target trigger points deep within the muscle. TDN is an additional tool that Billy uses in his care, when appropriate, to help lengthen and loosen tight muscles. Outside of the office he enjoys running, hiking and skiing. Billy resides in Lebanon, New Hampshire with his wife, Ruth.
