Bill Cioffredi grew up in Rutland, Vermont and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1979. While there he received a degree in Physical Therapy and lettered in varsity football. He began his professional career at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center right out of school. While there he designed a senior physical therapy position to specialize in the treatment of orthopedic conditions. While at DHMC he met Ruth Curtis, an Occupational Therapist specializing in hand rehabilitation. Ruth is an early member of the American Society of Hand Therapists, and was involved in the development of the first multidisciplinary orthopaedic Hand Clinic at DHMC.

In 1985 Bill and Ruth married, and established the Cioffredi Orthopaedic & Sports Therapy Center. Originally, the practice was open part-time with Bill as the sole provider. In the initial years, Bill’s intention was to maintain a simple, small office. As his case load grew, he brought on additional staff to meet demand and maintain his policy of immediate access; and so we became Cioffredi & Associates. For the first 28 years of our practice, our focus was on the delivery of excellent PT and OT services. The organization moved three times during that period, each time to secure a larger and more efficient space. In January of 2014 we relocated to our current location on Etna Road which was selected for the openness of the space as well as the exposure to the outdoors. We felt this location would provide an inspiring and healthy environment in which to care for our clients. In 2018, after identifying a need in the greater community, Cioffredi & Associates opened a second PT clinic in Grantham, NH to bring our services and expertise to the Greater Kearsarge/Lake Sunapee region.
