About your physical therapist

Hello! I am excited to introduce myself and, hopefully, work with you to achieve your movement goals. My name is Shani Rosenthal, and I am a Licensed Physical Therapist. I attended Carnegie Mellon University, where I earned my degree in Mechanical Engineering. There, I developed a strong foundation in problem-solving and honed my analytical mindset. As much as I enjoyed the critical-thinking aspects of engineering, I decided to apply those skills to people. I  went on to earn my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Pittsburgh. 

Alongside my academic pursuits, I have always been involved in athletics and weightlifting. In high school, I played on a California state-championship basketball team, and to this day, am highly involved in competitive Ultimate Frisbee. This exposure has provided me with valuable insights into the unique needs of athletes and the importance of specialized care in injury prevention, performance enhancement, and rehabilitation.

With my diverse background and unwavering dedication, I am here to provide you with exceptional physical therapy services. Whether you are an athlete looking to enhance your performance, a fitness enthusiast striving for optimal health, or someone seeking rehabilitation after an injury, I am ready to tailor my expertise to meet your unique needs.
