Elisa earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Northeastern University and her Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation Science from Northeastern University. She is dedicated to the ongoing pursuit of learning through regularly attending continuing education and attaining credentials that allow her to best serve her patients. She is Board Certified in Orthopedic Physical Therapy through the American Physical Therapy Association. After personally experiencing the incredible effects of trigger point dry needling in the treatment of her neck pain and tension headaches, Elisa obtained certification in dry needling through Myopain Seminars. She further developed her manual therapy skill set by training in the Maitland-Australian Approach and completing rigorous testing to receive the designation of Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist. Feeling there was a need to provide a more holistic approach in the management of pain and injury, she expanded her knowledge of massage therapy techniques through completion of the professional massage certification program at the Therapeutic Massage Training Institute in Charlotte, NC.
Elisa lives in Huntersville, NC with her husband. She moved to North Carolina from Long Island, NY in 2013 to escape the cold winters. Elisa loves being outdoors and enjoys staying active through jogging, hiking, and attending bootcamp classes.
