Deena earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Rutgers University and her Bachelor’s in Biology from Yeshiva University. Her clinical experience includes orthopedics, acute care/acute rehabilitation and adult neurological rehab. During her career she has had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of patient such as orthopedic pre op/post operative care for joint replacements, patients with low back pain, sports related injuries, shoulder/hip impingements and Runner’s knee. She recently got certified by Herman and Wallace and currently treats pelvic floor disorders ranging from postpartum care and pelvic floor dysfunctions. She utilizes the skills she has gained in these settings to create individualized care plans for every patient. Deena prides herself on constantly providing her patients with encouragement to keep them confident and motivated throughout their recoveries.
Her interest in pursuing physical therapy stems from her athletic background and her desire to help others restore normal function into their everyday lifestyle. Her love and passion for physical therapy came from an injury she sustained in college. She was the captain of the fencing team, competing in the NCAA, where she got injured and thought she would not be able to finish her season. After working with a physical therapist through the rehabilitation process, she was able to finish out the season strong. Deena is a dedicated, hard working, positive physical therapist, providing high quality, personalized care to every patient she treats.
In Deena’s free time she enjoys exploring different areas of NYC, traveling, hiking, running half marathons and biking.
