DR. DANIEL ROFÉ, PT, DPT
“There’s an efficient and an inefficient way to move”
An avid hockey player, Dr. Rofé decided early on to turn his love of performance enhancement and injury avoidance/treatment into a medical career. After graduating with a doctorate of physical therapy, Dr. Rofé went on to perform clinical work at the Cornell Weill Medical Center at New York city’s prestigious Presbyterian Hospital and has worked in sports therapy for several years.
Having a keen interest in orthopedics, wellness and nutrition, he has long been a proponent of melding the three to achieve overall fitness. He believes that patient education is key and that long-term health and vitality comes from empowering the individual with the right information. To that end, Dr. Rofé actively partners with his patients, providing an individualized regimen that stresses the return of full physical function through proper movement techniques and exercises.
One of Dr. Rofé's passions and expertise's is kettle bell training. Daniel uses kettle bells to get patients stronger, improve posture, normalize movement patterns, and wake up deep stabilizing muscles that prevent injury by creating a stable body and base. He believes the kettle bell is a dynamic and underutilized tool in the modern medical/fitness field and yields tremendous results in performance and health.
“I’m here to make sure that my clients stay injury free and (if injured) help them heal in the quickest, most efficient way possible."
