Stephanie Daniels, PT, DPT
Stephanie earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Florida in 2016, and prior to that earned her undergraduate degree in Communications with a minor in Sociology at Florida State University. She is originally from Florida, where she began practicing Orthopedics and Pelvic Health physical therapy. Stephanie found her interest in studying human movement and rehabilitation through yoga while teaching English in Japan for the JET Program.
“For years I suffered from symptoms I thought were irreversible. I felt like there wasn’t help for the pain and bleeding, that it had gone by for too long without medical attention. I was hesitant to seek help, as I thought it was impossible to fix. I am so happy I finally went to seek help from Stephanie at PT. When the doctors said the solution was major surgery or live with it, Stephanie was able to help manage the pain and reverse damage. She taught me techniques needed for my body to function as intended. Not only has the pain decreased, the bleeding pretty much stopped. If you take Stephanie’s kind and helpful suggestions (both in office and at home) it can work to get you results! If you simply do PT, it will bring wonderful results. I don’t know what you have gone through. I do know what it’s like to suffer from pain and bleeding, both physically and emotionally. There is help with Stephanie. She helps you heal physically and the emotional side will get better too once you start to get used to being in good, healing hands.”
Stephanie has a special interest in treating pelvic floor related diagnoses and is working to provide this service in the Upper Valley. She gained interest in pelvic health through exposure in her PT program, where she completed a clinical rotation with emphasis on pelvic health physical therapy. She then began her career in Florida practicing orthopedic and pelvic health physical therapy under the mentorship of a seasoned therapist with the Women’s Health Certification. She then worked at a clinic specializing in pelvic floor physical therapy in Colorado, and providing care for women and men with different types of pelvic floor related conditions. This fueled her passion for pelvic floor rehabilitation and she has committed her continuing education to taking pelvic health coursework. She has taken all three levels of the Pelvic Health coursework through the APTA’s Section on PelvIc Health, which provides rigorous hands-on, evidenced-based training for Physical Therapists in the evaluation and management of various Pelvic Floor diagnoses. These training courses are prepared by experts in the field and are recognized internationally by The International Continence Society (ICS) as providing training that conforms to ICS standards, to enable Physical Therapists to provide evidenced-based Pelvic Health services to their local communities.
“Stephanie is attuned, grounded, and applies her expansive knowledge and medical expertise in a way that is inspiring and comforting. Under her care I have made immense gains corroborated by two surgeons… Any description of Stephanie as a person and professional would fall short of her vibrancy, brilliance and kindness.” -Ellie Anderson
Stephanie additionally has taken Level 1 coursework in Functional Dry Needling with Kinetacore. Her Pelvic Floor coursework and Orthopedic experience has helped her manage men and women with pelvic floor dysfunction including bladder and bowel dysfunction such as urinary and fecal incontinence, bladder emptying difficulties, constipation, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain diagnoses, sexual dysfunction, and pregnancy and post-partum recovery including diastasis rectus abdominus, pain with exercise and intercourse, incontinence, and pelvic floor and core muscle rehabilitation.

Outside of the clinic, Stephanie spends her time exploring New Hampshire with her husband and daughters. She also enjoys running, hiking, doing yoga, and cooking.

Just recently, thanks to all the physical therapy and exercises, my pain has subsided substantially and my quality of life has risen. I can’t thank Stephanie enough for my progress and I highly recommend Cioffredi for anyone suffering from pelvic pain.” -Fred Kelley
