Dr. John P. Scafidi has been a practicing physical therapist for nearly 10 years. John is
passionate about helping all of his patients to enjoy more active and
productive lifestyles, to function pain-free; recovering as much of their
abilities as possible after an injury, illness, or other chronic condition.
He can’t imagine a more personally rewarding profession than physical therapy.
Over the years, John has worked very hard as an outpatient physical therapist,
with advanced training in orthopedics and manual therapy, to earn a widespread
reputation for excellence, integrity, knowledge and his ability to focus
on the well being and needs of his patients.
In 2012, Dr. Scafidi was accepted as a Fellow of the American Academy of
Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy (AAOMPT), in the field of Physical
Therapy. He is 1 of only 13 Physical Therapists in the state of New Jersey
and the only Physical Therapist in Monmouth County that is a full fellow
of the AAOMPT.
He received his Bachelors of Science in Allied Health and his Masters of
Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Connecticut. Dr. Scafidi
completed his residency and fellowship training in orthopedic manual physical
therapy at the Institute of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy (IOMT)
which is affiliated with Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston University.
Dr. Scafidi furthered his education by attending the University of Montana
where he earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2012.
When he is not treating patients John enjoys spending time at parks, on
the beach, or just relaxing around the house with his wife, Lili, and
their son, Andrew. John enjoys working out, going for bike rides and relaxing
with family and friends. He has traveled to many parts of the country
while practicing as a therapist and while volunteering his therapy services.
