Laura Paley, PT, DPT, NKT, FMT

Physical Therapist

Laura completed her undergraduate coursework in Kinesiology at the University of Maryland and earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Rutgers University in her home state of New Jersey. During her time at Rutgers, Laura fostered clinical experience in orthopedic, neurological, and acute care settings. Laura also has certifications in NeuroKinetic Therapy and Functional Movement Techniques.

In 2016, Laura traveled to Anaheim, California, to co-present her research platform at the Combined Sections Meeting of the American Physical Therapy Association.

Laura was drawn to physical therapy through her fascination with anatomy and movement, and her desire to provide people with the tools to improve their quality of life. She believes that there is no goal too big or too small for rehabilitation. She strives to treat the root cause of pain and dysfunction by way of movement and motor control assessment, in order to help others achieve optimal performance.

An avid sports fan and participant, Laura played for the University of Maryland’s Club Rugby team. In her free time, Laura can be found shooting hoops, swinging kettlebells, and practicing Olympic weightlifting techniques. Laura also attends NeuroKinetic Therapy study groups and volunteers as a teaching assistant for NeuroKinetic Therapy courses held in Manhattan to pursue her love of learning and teaching others.
