STUART KERSHNER, PT, MPT, OCS
My focus is to deliver comprehensive care that will get you back to being active, fit, and healthy. My commitment to helping others live a healthy active lifestyle started over 20 years ago. I started this journey by pursuing my bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of Connecticut. I worked as a Exercise Physiologist and Personal Trainer for 7 years helping people achieve their health and fitness goals. I spent another 3 years pursuing my Master's degree in Phyisical Therapy (MPT) from California State University - Sacramento and now I have over 13 years of experience as a Physical Therapist treating patients including children, weekend warriors, Olympic athletes, older adults and everyone in between. I also have advanced physical therapy certifications including my Orthopedic Certified Specialist (OCS) as well as specialty certifications in functional dry needling, Graston Technique, and Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). I know how to relieve your pain and help you return to your daily activities, run better, and improve your overall fitness level.
I also have a wonderful wife and two amazing boys. I am a finisher of the Boston Marathon and Ironman Lake Placid. I love to spend free time outside being active including skiing, hiking, biking and running. I also have fun in the garage fixing whatever is broken or even building something from scratch. My passion for problem solving is what makes me work so hard to help you get better so you can return to being active, fit, and healthy.
