Cioffredi & Associates is dedicated to staying on the cutting edge of physical therapy by investing in the continual development and education of our staff. To this end, we have created one of the most highly trained organizations in the greater North East, which is consistently reflected in our statistical Outcomes and Accolades and Exceptional Testimonials. Furthermore, we are committed to sharing our expertise and knowledge to the betterment of our patients, community, and profession.
Our clinic puts a high value on continuing education and sharing of knowledge between colleagues through our mentorship program and individual company-supported continuing education each year. In additional to their doctoral degrees, our PTs have acquired additional certifications including the advanced Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) held by only 5% of all American PTs, Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment of the Spine (MDT), McKenzie Method, Dry Needling: Trigger Point Dry Needling and Integrative Dry Needling, The Graston Technique, Cupping Therapy, Graded Motor Imagery / Mirror Therapy, and Mulligan Technique.
In addition, we reinforce these advanced degrees and certifications with both reserved one-on-one mentorship time and group mentorship time to educate ourselves as a team. This monthly mentorship program includes reviews of the most up-to-date evaluation and treatment techniques and discussions about current research in PT, sports medicine, and rehabilitation. Periodic seminars led by area healthcare providers from different specialties are another important component of clinical staff professional development at Cioffredi & Associates.
