“Thank you Marissa Reilly for getting me back to mobile, out of pain, and stronger. She is my hero!” – Lynne Stahler
Marissa has practiced as a Licensed Athletic Trainer for several years in both CT and NJ, and spent a summer working on the University of Virginia sports medicine team. She has covered a variety of sports as an athletic trainer, but her primary sports have been hockey and lacrosse. She had a very unique final clinical experience as a PT student working with athletes in the NFL Combine training program in California, and also has experience treating Navy Seals and both active-duty military and veterans. Here at Cioffredi & Associates, she leads up the Sports Rehabilitation & Performance Program at the Cioffredi Sports Performance Center in the Lebanon Clinic and onsite with a number of local schools and sports teams.
Growing up, Marissa spent the majority of her time involved in sports. She played softball her entire life and throughout high school, and supplemented that with volleyball and racing on her high school ski team. Her passion for physical therapy began when she sustained several ankle and shoulder injuries in her sports. She enjoys working with all sorts of conditions, but has a particular love for ACL repairs, shoulder injuries and surgical repairs, ankle/foot injuries, and concussion rehabilitation. Her treatment approach involves helping patients to understand their condition and promoting self-management, all the while completing functional and challenging activities with a fun and sport-specific emphasis.
Outside of the clinic, Marissa enjoys being outdoors. She lives in Vermont and enjoys skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, kayaking, paddle-boarding, playing volleyball, traveling, trying new beers and wines, and spending time with her friends, family, husband, and two dogs.
“The professional care and training I received helped me quickly realize I was not only capable of getting back on the ice, but would be able to do so in time for the coming season. I greatly appreciate the professional as well as personal nature of the training I received at Cioffredi. thank you Marissa!” -Brian J. Premore
“Most physical therapists can help you achieve your goals, but the amazing ones help you mentally and emotionally work through all aspects to achieve those goals… Marissa intuitively knew what to say, when to push, when to change approach, and when to remind me that I have had this injury for almost 30 years. I have been given the skills to continue my growth in physical fitness without causing further injury. I will truly miss my sessions with Marissa, I can’t recommend her enough to everyone. ” -Karen Barbour
