Howard Badillo, PT, DPT
Howard earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Health Science from Northern Vermont University-Johnson (formally Johnson State College; 2016), and Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Vermont (2020). He was born in the Philippines and later immigrated to Hawai’i. Immediately after high school, Howard served in the United States Army and was deployed to Afghanistan for a year. After completing his six-year commitment in the Army, he moved to Vermont to pursue higher education. He is the first in his family to attend college and earn college degrees.
Howard helped me achieve a new normal, where my relationship to exercise is much more positive than ever, and where I have confidence in my own strength and ability that I’ve never had before. I’m so grateful– thank you!” -J.W.
Howard’s passion for physical fitness has led him to his career in physical therapy. He enjoys troubleshooting and working with a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, particularly the neck, back, shoulder, hip, and knee regions. Howard also enjoys applying manual therapy techniques as treatment interventions and plans to pursue additional accreditation and expertise through the Cioffredi Continuing Education Programs.
“Howard is an especially good listener for a medical practitioner, he’s tuned in, always communicating clearly when explaining each exercise and it’s purpose, the mechanics of muscle function, making a care plan and checking to see if I was in agreement or not and then evaluating the results, all with the enthusiasm of a man who loves his job… Thank you Howard Badillo for restoring the athlete in me. This is my reward for working hard and for the first time I know my Physical therapist feels my reward. Howard, you showed me this by working hard with me. Your enthusiasm became my enthusiasm. I am rich with success because of Howard Badillo.” -Nancy Baisley
Howard currently lives in the Upper Valley with his wife and daughter. Outside of the clinic, he enjoys being with his family, volunteering at community events, practicing meditation and mindfulness, hiking, running, working out, fishing, bowhunting, snorkeling, and bodysurfing in Hawai’i.
“I’ve tried a few times to tell Howard how unbelievably grateful I am for his help and guidance, but I’m not sure he understands how sincere I am. I came here after 6-7 years of total pain, finally fed up that I couldn’t play with my kids how I wanted or take a walk like I wanted; and now I’m leaving here basically pain free, armed with exercises to progress and feeling like I can live the life I want. I’m so grateful. Howard treated me with 100% respect. I never felt judged because of my ability or size, which can be hard to find in the medical community… I would highly recommend Cioffredi & Associates and particularly Howard to friend and family. Thank you!” -Kate Everett
“What I hoped for was to get back to normal– get rid of the pain, be able to walk. What I got was so much more. Howard greeted me every appointment cheerfully and really listened to me. He worked with me to do simple strengthening exercises using proper form, gave me interventions I could do myself at home to alleviate the pain, and helped me to develop a better understanding of how to respond to that pain along with the confidence in my ability to work through it without hurting myself. All of this happened within a shorter timeframe than anticipated, and I ended up in a much better place than I could have hoped for. I had wanted to get “back to normal”; Howard helped me achieve a new normal, where my relationship to exercise is much more positive than ever, and where I have confidence in my own strength and ability that I’ve never had before. I’m so grateful– thank you!” -J.W.
“Howard’s enthusiasm and genuine interest in my concerns was encouraging that I found someone I trusted my case with…His energy and knowledge have made this such a positive experience.” -K.R.
