Thomas Horvath

PHYSICAL THERAPY ASSISTANT

undefinedTom uses his passion for the field of physical therapy and dedicates himself to helping patients achieve their best possible treatment outcomes, while constantly challenging himself to improve as both a clinician and as an individual. As a former track and field athlete, he learned the value of hard work and physical wellness before carrying these virtues into his college years to pursue a degree in exercise science at Rutgers University. Following this, Tom elected to work to become a physical therapist assistant, receiving high honors in each semester of his time at Union County College. He is now preparing to continue his education and become a doctor of physical therapy while continuing to aid patients under his care at ProFysio. Currently, he is studying to receive a certification as a strength and conditioning specialist, and stays active by creating and performing his own goal-oriented exercise programs. Tom has experience working with many orthopedic cases among patients of all age groups, as well as with some rare neurological conditions.
