%name Meet Danielle Mitko, Our New Physical Therapist

Danielle MItko earned her Master’s of Science in Physiotherapy from the CAPTE-accredited program at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland.  Danielle returned to the States for her last clinical placement in 2013 and received her license in early 2014.  Prior to studying abroad, Danielle attended Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey where she earned her bachelor’s in biological sciences.

Danielle takes an individualized approach to the management of her patients and believes the best patient care comes from tailoring treatment to the person, not the diagnosis.  Danielle has taken courses such as Maitland, Mulligan and Spinal Manipulation, to progress her manual skills, as well as Functional Movement Taping, Pilates and Runner’s Rehab to further expand her skill set.  Danielle is currently preparing to become a board-certified specialist in Orthopedics in early 2018.

In addition to her passion for physical therapy, Danielle has coached gymnastics for 15+ years and volunteers on the high school level from time to time.  This experience has provided her a unique insight into working with athletes, including but not limited to dancers, gymnasts, football and soccer players.

In her free time, she enjoys working out, whether it be running, weight lifting, snowboarding or playing with her dog.  Most importantly she loves anything which involves spending time with her family.
