Marissa joined JAG-ONE Physical Therapy in August of 2012 and has been treating out of our West Orange clinic since. She studied Kinesiology at Temple University and attended Physical Therapy school at Touro College. During her time as a student, she had exposure to a variety of specialties including orthopedics with a sports focus, acute care at Hackensack Hospital and subacute care primarily consisting of neuro rehab for stroke and spinal cord injuries.
Marissa has had the opportunity to grow within JAG-ONE Physical Therapy from a new graduate physical therapist to a clinical director. She has been exposed to a wide range of conditions including overuse/athletic injuries, post-surgical cases, motor vehicle accidents, work related injuries and generalized conditioning/strengthening. Outside of treating patients, she has spent time educating local sports teams and athletes on a personal passion of hers, injury prevention and proper training. She also attends many local events in order to stay involved with the community.
Marissa has furthered her clinical skills and knowledge through involvement with various continuing education courses. She is a Graston Technique provider and is certified in Functional Dry Needling. Persistence with learning and growing within the field of physical therapy is a priority of hers so that she can continue to provide top quality care.
