Anthony has worked as a physical therapist in orthopedic and sports private practices since he graduated from Rutgers University with a doctorate in physical therapy. He has continued to enhance his manual and clinical skills for spine, joint and musculoskeletal conditions through various certifications and continuing education. Anthony is a Board Certified Clinical Specialist in Orthopaedic (OCS) and Sports Physical Therapy (SCS). The American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS) certifies those who have demonstrated advanced clinical knowledge and skills in their respected physical therapy specialty areas. Less than 1% of physical therapists are board certified specialists in both sports and orthopedic physical therapy. Anthony is a current member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and a member of orthopedic and sports sections. He has presented at the national level at the combined sections meeting for the sports section of the APTA. Anthony has assisted in clinical research involving the study of arm injuries in baseball pitchers, eccentric rehabilitation programs following total knee replacement and ACL repair, and risk factors for cross country runners. Anthony provides clinical education to the students of the Rutgers Physical Therapy Program in Newark, NJ. Prior to attending UMDNJ, he earned his Bachelors degree in Biology at William Paterson University and Seton Hall University. Anthony's clinical residencies involve treating patients with a wide variety of diagnoses. He was trained in neurological physical therapy at Kessler Institute of Rehabilitation, treating patients who were recovering from strokes, brain injuries, and various neurological conditions. He spent time working bedside at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center to improve the function of patients recovering from illnesses, joint replacement operations and cardiac surgery. Here, Anthony also treated patients in the cardiac, progressive, and medical intensive care units (ICU). He was trained in outpatient orthopedics and neurological rehabilitation at St. Joseph's Regional Center in Paterson, N.J. and Mullaney and Associates Physical Therapy, Matawan, NJ. Anthony grew up in Midland Park, NJ and attended Bergen Catholic High School. He played baseball and football in high school and continued to play baseball throughout college at Seton Hall University and William Paterson University. His passion for physical therapy grew as he endured various sports related injuries throughout his athletic career. During this time he learned a lot about the rehabilitation process and discovered the privilege of taking care of people in a unique way. Anthony was immediately drawn in when he saw how the best physical therapists had a unique ability of combining knowledge, manual skills and interpersonal skills to help guide their patients back to doing the things they love to do in life.
