James Gallegro MSPT, DScPT, CMPT, CSCS
James Gallegro, PT, DScPT, MSPT, CMPT, CSCS received a Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy from Ithaca College in 2000. He spent six years at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, building a strong background in the medical side of the Physical Therapy profession. In 2006, he left the hospital setting to pursue his passion for outpatient orthopedics, joining Manhattan Physio Group in September of 2013.
His belief in providing patient-centered, individualized care has led him to continuously push his education to further strengthen his skills for patient assessment and treatment. To that end, James has completed a rigorous post-professional clinical training and examination program through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT), earning the distinction of “Certified Manual Physical Therapist” (CMPT) in 2010. He then went on to a Doctor of Science degree (DSc) in Physical Therapy at Andrews University, which he completed in 2015.
James holds a Certified Strength and Conditioning specialization through the National Strength and Conditioning Association; and a certified Golf Fitness Professional with the Titleist Performance Institute. He also is a professor of spinal orthopedics in the Touro College DPT program here in NYC.
As a rehabilitation professional and fitness consultant, James believes in building programs that are designed to not only address pain, but to identify underlying inefficiencies in movement and integrate better patterns into exercise.
Having recovered from numerous injuries himself, his background as a college hockey player and fitness enthusiast helps James bring a personal touch to guiding his patients back to a high level of activity, health and wellbeing.
