John G. Fox, P.T., M.A., C.W.T.
Mr. John G. Fox has been a physical therapist for more than 23 years. He graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Health Science and a Master's degree in Physical Therapy from Touro College School of Health Science. He has extensive experience in orthopedic and sports physical therapy. He has taken numerous courses in spinal/extremity mobilization and manipulation. He is well versed in the Feldenkrais method and other integrated somatic therapies. He is an instructor for the American Back School and has instructed nurses and nurse's aides in proper body mechanics for over 18 years. He has developed an excellent relationship with the medical community and strongly believes in physical therapy and the positive effects it has on his referred patients. He also takes great pride in the referrals received by the medical doctors and honors the trust they have in him.
It was no mistake that John Fox chose to become a physical therapist. His friends, family and patients all say that he was "born" for the role. And after 23 years as a physical therapist, he still has a passion for it. Maybe that's because he learns something new from each of his patients.
