Stephanie ViolaPT, DPT
Stephanie graduated with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Columbia University, where she maintained a high academic GPA and received a merit scholarship. She completed the Advanced Track in Orthopedics and taught a Master Class on Spinal Locking and Patient Positioning for Lumbar Manipulation. She completed several elective courses while at Columbia University including: Vestibular Rehabilitation, TMJ Dysfunction and Cervicogenic Pain, Women’s Health, and Foot and Ankle Rehabilitation. As an undergraduate, she majored in Health and Exercise Sciences at Skidmore College and participated in the community service club, an a Capella group and the college community choir.
Stephanie decided to pursue the field of physical therapy because she wanted to help others prevent injury, improve their health and wellness, and return to their functional activities following injury. She has a strong passion for individualized patient-care and integrating her passion for yoga, pelvic floor physical therapy and orthopedics into her treatment approach. She is actively engaged in community outreach, teaching and volunteering. She has recently volunteered at Columbia’s RunLab, an Amputee Running and Mobility Clinic, and has taught Anatomy and Biomechanics for a yoga instructor training.
Stephanie has strong orthopedic experience and has treated patients across the lifespan with a variety of conditions. She has completed Pelvic Floor Level 1 through Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute and has treated patients with incontinence and pelvic pain. She plans on continuing to expand her clinical skills with continuing education on manual therapy techniques and pelvic floor rehabilitation.
