Why Our Patients Choose Us!

The therapy and treatment she provided was amazing! My life has improved because I’ve learned how I can heal my body. Dr DeStefano is knowledgeable and she gave caring care.

- Angelika R.

To say that Secili has changed my life, is no understatement. If you are battling core issues, pelvic floor troubles, or hypermobility, I cannot recommend a better provider. Secili quickly diagnosed muscle imbalances and trigger points located elsewhere in my spine and treated me with a combination of exercises and dry needling. I was back on my feet within a month with no more debilitating pain! I totally credit Secili for helping me live a pain free and healthy life!

- Catherine C.

Matt’s running assessment was incredibly helpful to keep me from injuring myself over and over again. It’s a friendly atmosphere and hugely improved my issues.

- Cynthia G.

I started seeing Secili shortly after the birth of my 2nd child. I had developed hip problems that impacted everything I did – from carrying my children around, to walking around, to even sitting comfortably. Since working with Secili, I have completed 5 marathons, several half marathons, and logged countless miles on the roads and trails.

Tools To Get You Back In The Game

Physical therapists truly are movement specialists, but that’s not all. For many people, their first thought may be sports and orthopedics, but we also play a huge part in men’s and women’s health, chronic pain, progressive disorders like Parkinson’s Disease, stroke and cardiac rehab. The CDC recommends safer alternatives than opiods for pain, such as physical therapy. Physical therapists treat pain through movement, hands-on care, and patient education—and by increasing physical activity you can also reduce your risk of other chronic diseases and dependence on pain medication. We use comprehensive diagnostic methods, including rehabilitative ultrasound imaging, running evaluations and functional movement assessments to help determine which services and treatments you will benefit from most. Our treatments aim to reduce your pain and improve your function to allow you to return to the life and activities you enjoy.
